Just hit me

A poster earlier had a clip from Russian News stating impeachment would not go through, it will stall in Senate, we got tRump elected. (Paraphrasing)

So I read it, got pissed at the Russians and Orange Shitstain and moved on.

But then it hit me, why would the Russians be so confident. Could be bravado, could also be they own a lot of Senators. Mitch and Lindsey are obvious, how many more?

2. well, i'd oblige, but i can't reach you

Moscow Mitch and Leningrad Lindsey, for sure. Possibly all GOP Senators who have taken those little jaunts to Russia since 2016. There are photos around DU somewhere.

3. My conspiracy theory since 2016 has been

Russia has got the GOP by their tiny nads via hacked e-mails and Russian NRA money - and that's not even counting what the Red Sparrow (Marina Butina) may have.

6. technically, yes, this is obvious.

well, aside from the fact that impeachment happens in the house, not the senate.
the senate convicts or not.

but more substantively, senate republicans will never formally vote to remove a republican president, in fact they likely would never hold a trial if they knew they'd end up voting to remove.

instead, they'd go to donnie, tell him the whip count, and convince him to resign.

how exactly you get that through to someone like donnie i don't know, but they got through to nixon, so it may be possible with donnie.


keep in mind donnie is a disaster for republicans, most of them likely want him gone, they just don't want to be seen not supporting him. so the trick is in figuring out how to make that happen without making republicans "look bad" in the eyes of republican primary voters.

8. They'll never convince him to resign either. Ever

You've obviously never dealt w a malignant narcissist. Buckle up. We're just in the suburbs of CrazyTown. #Traitor is taking us on a wild ride

I have no predictions on how this ends but 2 things are clear
1. Trumpism is now deeply woven into every bit of the Republican party. Too many are too far gone into the cult.

2. #Traitor will NEVER resign. I'll happily eat my hat or any other thing if he does but one thing I know from experience is these psychos never think they're wrong. His grievance machine nourishes him and props him up. He'll never give up the adulation voluntarily

7. I realize that is likely

Hell, I think at least 1/2 of the remaining Republicans would cheer if Trump shipped us (Democrats) all to death camps. They view us as the enemy, and its what they wanted when they said they were taking their country back.

9. Because impeachment NEVER gets passed in the senate? Right?! Cause impeachment is only for house

... and senate is for conviction and removal.

Just to clarify

16. That's not confidence...it is one fleck of common sense

Not always present around here, in regard to the senate

Trump's approval rating among Republicans will rise during impeachment hearings. That is situational reality. Now you want and somehow expect dozens of Republican senators to defy their own kind during the most critical and memorable vote of their lives.
