1. Whether he's convicted here doesn't matter. There's so many criminal charges coming his way

He'll never get off completely. Tax investigations, fraud, murder (if you ask me, yes), etc. There's no one he hasn't cheated. Give it time.

2. Then, next election cycle, we need to take them all down.

Prepare the ads now. Blanket their districts with their perfidy in the month leading up to the mid-terms.
EarlG’s “Pics of moment” would be an excellent place to start with the worst offenders.

8. This! As important as it is to make Trump pay for his crimes

it's equally important to sweep his gang out of office.

15. Yes!

 

I think we sometimes expect others to do the heavy lifting - Mueller, the House, the Senate, etc. - when WE actually have most of the power, as we showed in November and January.

3. Failure to convict on the impeachment charges does not equal skating

He's got troubles ahead. I'd even argue that the best thing that could happen for him would be to be convicted in the impeachment trial because it might head off real criminal charges that will certainly follow his "acquittal".

24. The issue with the most potential to do damage to him,

is the tax issues. There's a lot of grief the IRS can bring to him without a jury trial, like seizing property.

Cy Vance won't EVER convict trump of anything serious.

7. And a third of Republicans say they would leave the GOP & join a Trump party...

...if he started one.

They know if they vote to convict Trump, & Trump turns against them, they could lose 1/3 (or more?) of their voter base & thus (likely) lose their Senate seat.

9. Above the Law ?

A perfect criminal case was presented by the managers. NOW, will some jurisdiction take up that crime? Even if only to smoke out the "secret pardons" tRUMP has no doubt bestowed on himself. (and the crime syndicate).

10. He won't "skate"

 

He may not be convicted in the Senate, but the only difference between conviction and acquittal is a disqualification from holding federal office. And a disqualification by the Senate is not the only way to make that happen.

On the other hand, the impeachment managers have done a beautiful job of etching this into the historical record for all to see. He's not getting away with this. He will forever be tarnished and ruined.

And he is facing years of criminal charges and civil lawsuits - he will spend the rest of his life running from the law.

And with any luck at all, those of us who have been frustrated and upset by the lack of accountability for that monster, will get to see a whole bunch of justice bring his free run to a stop. For good.

Trump will skate for one reason alone... Republicans.

They were never going to convict him. Never. I have no idea why anyone evr has thought that they will do the right thing. There may have been a time. That time is LONG GONE.

Justice Department is for. Lock his orange ass up.

21. History demands this moment. Even if the GOP is too spineless to convict, the

actions will go on record for posterity.

The impeachment trial is a construction of a primary source for our time.

Linguists and historians will look back on this trial and will clearly see that the GOP is conflating rhetoric with incitement.

It may not seem that way now, but anyone who has written a research paper knows how to go about sourcing contemporaneous accounts of something.

The GOP senators who are showing their asses (in my mother's words) stand in sharp relief to the people who take Trump's actions seriously.

not convicting Trump. It's either the punishment will come now with conviction or later without conviction. But the punishment will come.

23. He may skate with the impeachment conviction. We will see what comes of the state cases over

the next few months (years?). I remember the jubilation when Mueller was appointed and many were convinced that would be the end of Trump.

Is if about 20 senators don't show up for the vote, then we only need 54. At any given time about a third of them weren't there for the presentation of the evidence

Awhile back..watched Chris Rock's comedy special..his bit on trump and on generally bad people --that sometimes never get their due; just desserts and karma never ones aroound to punsh them for bad, evil, corrupt, greedy behavior; of course I'm paraphrasing ... yet with Rock's comediic voice was hilarious.
