Impeach Trump or Face the End of Democracy

If Donald Trump and his administration get away with the attacks on Democracy, we might just see the end of it.

The impeachment of Trump is a huge step but should the House start the impeachment process now?

In Trump news, has he committed high crimes and misdemeanors, and closer to becoming an impeached presidents? Should the Senate listen to the House on corruption and criminality, taking a resolution for the impeachment of Trump? The power for Trump to pardon if he abuses that is an impeachable offense.

Professor Laurence Tribe discussed how to impeach a president and shared his impeach definition and is it time for the impeaching of Trump?

McChinless will make sure the trial in the Senate never sees the light of day.

4. I believe Tribe was suggesting that it *not* go to Senate

but rather, the House pens a Resolution, indicating the results of the inquiry. Bypass the Senate altogether.

2. #GOTV2020 will save democracy. Nothing else will do.

You can't have a democracy if people don't vote for it.

3. Why doesn't Speaker Pelosi listen to Tribe?

He proposes an excellent solution: initiate an Impeachment Inquiry, so that the House can more readily access, eg, grand jury testimony; then at the conclusion , rather than refer to the Senate, just make a properly titled Resolution, just before the election. Sounds totally like a legit strategy!

6. Why doesn't Speaker Pelosi listen to Tribe?

Well, maybe she's listening to herself because it was her who said that to investigate LYING WAR CRIMINALS Bush/Cheney wasn't the right thing to do because of all the dissension it would cause in the country. As if we don't have that now.

Maybe Nancy thinks that we can vote fatso out in 2020. Well, let's HOPE like HELL we CAN vote kin 2020, because we know that the ruskies have been messing around with our voting system since 2016. tRump and McTurtle won't fix anything that might stop russia from interfering again because we know that they need their help to steal an election. Think of what'll be happening if those treasonous pigs get away with stealing another 4 years from this country? You wanna talk about dissension. The USA will cease to exist as we've known it for the last hundreds of years. Usually I'm not this pessimistic (And I can be pessimistic, believe me), but this talk about not wanting to destroy this country This country is being DESTROYED beyond measure CURRENTLY by tRump and the Senate.

8. If we are that bad shape, impeachment won't do a damn thing.

And a failed impeachment in 2006 would not have helped either.
