I'm starting to understand this 3D Chess that Pelosi and Schiff are playing...

...Call individuals to testify before congress that you know will be blocked from testifying by 45. BOOM! An Article of impeachment for contempt of congress. Wash, rinse, repeat. And now, 45 is living out in real time the old adage of the cover-up is worse than the crime.

13. Forget not that Pompeo was among the ReTHUG goons who

made several demands to Hillary Clinton's State Department.
I want to see this fucker in prison. He has no executive privilege.

2. I was thinking they might be hoping one of these guys defies Trump and comes in anyway.

Then what does Trump do? Have him arrested?

4. I think they would take that, but obviously that is not going to happen...

...so on to plan B.

3. Yup

Each one is an obstruction to the investigation by the House.

11. I disagree

First comes the inquiry, followed by articles of impeachment, then perhaps if the case is strong enough and public opinion shifts which it seems to be doing, conviction and removal by the Senate.

One step at a time and the case must be built, opinions must be swayed.

5. But what good is that?

Republicans aren't going to vote him out just because he defied Congressional subpoenas, so these newly added articles don't do the kind of good actual testimony would do.

7. I'm with you.

I get that we have "enough" but I want the facts. I want to see the witnesses squirm and either tell the truth or perjure themselves. And I don't mind seeing them handcuffed by the Sergeant-at-Arms and hauled before congress if that's what it takes. Although it might be an effective strategy, adding an article of impeachment every time someone defies congress is morally unsatisfactory.

10. And another point about this particular witness...

...he donated 1 million dollars to 45's campaign. Do you really thing he would do anything other than stonewall? No, of course not. Pelosi and Schiff are playing 45 like a violin. This exercise was all about further development of a contempt of congress article of impeachment.

14. Yep. They're handing him the "obstruction of justice" rope,

and we are watching him hang himself with it.
