I'm feeling a new love for impeachment.

I didn't want to see an impeachment proceeding because I didn't want to see Trump removed and Pence take over. I still don't want to see that, but I'm thinking the impeachment process might be a good thing, since removal will not happen anyway.

Remember how Bill Clinton was crippled by his impeachment? His last two years in office were spent in some kind of limbo. And Congress conducted zero business while they were busy trying to impeach him. Sooooo... If we could somehow get the process started, and draw it out as long as possible, we could accomplish a couple things. First, no legislation and probably no appointments. Second, we would find out all sorts of interesting stuff about this president and his cronies.

Of course, there is almost no chance Congress will even entertain the possibility of impeachment. Trump said he could shoot somebody in the street and get away with it, but I think he was being too modest. He would have to do far worse than that. But it's fun to think about.

1. Been saying since the election, that when the GOP gets all it wants, Trump will be impeached.

 

Two years at the most.

2. Impeachment is probably coming because trump is becoming a bigger and bigger liability.

Just wait until next year when the election is on the horizon...

3. The republicans would do it if it meant a shift for them in the midterms.

All they care about is two things: wealth and power. And they'd stomp over their own mothers to get it.

4. They can get everything they want from Pence

Trump is rapidly becoming a liability and is mismanaging everything. If things continue to go south, they will just go with Pence. It may cost them with their base, but they will still have two years to get their agenda through, and then they can.all take jobs working for Koch Industries.
