Why Not Double Impeach?

Hear me out:

Continue investigating and impeach soon but with only some of the charges.

If the Senate rejects, it becomes a campaign issue to change the Senate.

If Trump is still in office, second impeachment with stronger charges under the new Congress.

If Pelosi is so scared of the politics, this could work as an alternative approach.

1. i've said before we should impeach repeatedly. maybe four different times.

i think there are more than two broad categories of "high crimes and misdemeanors" he's committed.

we're in a no-win situation with a senate that clearly will give him a pass on anything, but we can make a statement.

we can keep showing that even after the senate refuses to kick him out, he's *still* impeachable on other offenses.

if nothing else, he can be the first president impeached multiple times.


one thing this does is keep his malfeasance an inappropriateness for office in the news. impeaching him repeatedly also undercuts the "exonerated" crap and highlights that we need a senate that will do the right thing instead of the right-wing thing.

2. Begin with the slamdunk campaign finance violations

It won't require much work at it has been thoroughly investigated and would emphasize Rule of Law going into the coming elections.
