House Dems need to start investigations now

There should be several tracks to them:

1. Financial committees should investigate Trump's taxes and financial ties to Russia.

2. Intelligence committees need to look into the hacking of the 16 election and the Trump campaign's contacts with Russians

3. The Judiciary committee has to Trump's attempts at obstruction of justice

And while the House Dems do this, our candidates need to talk to the people about jobs, healthcare, income inequality, etc.

I firmly believe that if Dems play it smart and expose Trump while campaigning on issues that people most care about, it will lead to total victory in 20.

1. Keep up the pressure until Trump declares victory and resigns.

4. More than this

 

We can't just run standard boring investigations that no one will care about.

These need to be impeachment investigations, with impeachment hanging over every single hearing.

7. That 'label' would grant an imprimatur, and level of attention from the media, not present without

it.

That would be the logical argument, anyway.

6. Democracy vs. Democratic Republic

If someone would comment, 'we live in a democracy', he would be instantly chastised by someone who would correct him, 'we live in a democratic republic'.

So, now our elected politicians are suggesting that the voters should decide on impeachment....2 years from now. NO, we live in a 'democratic republic' not a democracy!

YOU, politician, do your job as framed in our system of governance. If you don't, WE will do our defined job and replace you in two years.

9. This is already happening

The hearings need to be public and fully aired on TV.

That is what brought down Nixon - public hearings, as govt officials exposed the corruption under oath.

10. Exactly

 

Congress didnít jump right into impeachment hearings. There was a Senate committee investigation into Watergate that lasted for months.
