It would be a distracting circus that could also be used by Trump and Congress to push through their agenda without getting as much attention as they would otherwise.
I thoroughly disagree. Since when people get a free pass with the justice just because it would attract attention? With that kind of argument you can almost close you eyes on anything. All the more that it would take months of behind closed doors investigation before the media had any substance to chew on, so it would not happen during the first weeks, probably months of Trump's tenure.
Anyway, the media are perfectly capable of covering more than one issue at a time, and if they close their eyes on important issues, that is because they are complacent towards the power in place, which does not seem to be the case with Trump at least as far the NYT and the WP are concerned.
But the real issue imo is that she would not go down without bringing Trump with her, since I am sure she knows a lot about his practices of corruption, since he was certainly among the ones to whom she has offered pay for play.
