People say we need to forgive those who have wronged us. But when does forgiveness actually occur?

Ever hear people say, "Why bother to impeach Trump? Let the voters decide in 2020 whether they want to get rid of him?" Do you agree?
I don't agree. If Trump committed an impeachable offense he needs to suffer the consequences. I'm thinking of the following analogy. Let's say an 80-year-old commits a serious crime. Would you say, "He's going to die soon...
