2. Gerry is one of the smartest guys in the House

Also one of their sharpest legal minds. He wouldn't touch this without a reason.

8. Wouldn't tax records be needed to address

the emoluments clause? Seems reasonable to me.

9. IF HE SHOOTS AND MISSES it could well backfire badly.

We need a lot of ammo, i.e., tons of certifiable, bullet-proof evidence to proceed. To shoot and miss will be fatal to our cause.

10. The resolution of inquiry is the means to collect evidence

It si not so much alleging wrong doing, it is alleging there is enough indication to collect evidence of wrong doing.

If the Republicans will not allow this investigation, then they are in collusion with Trump and his cohorts.

11. Well I guess this is just to get them on record

cause I'd be surprised if those Republican assholes in the House did anything.

12. Wow.

I don't expect this to go anywhere, but at least someone is trying. It's not like it's partisan...there is real concern here.

14. Rethugs will do anything to block this.

They will protect Trump until the views cows home.

I'm not getting my hopes up.
