37. That's not a lesson in civics as much as a model of painstaking Republican salaciousness about a

moral issue -- a sex act. It's as laughable now as it was then.

You even admit Clinton's impeachment was "slow." It was hella slow.

As Graham said then, in so many words: "... If this body determines that your conduct as a public official is out of bounds in your role. Because impeachment is ... about cleansing, restoring the honor and dignity of the office."

His words do ring true today.

But. Nowhere does all that wasted taxpayer money and time support our wasting the public's time and money -- with trying, stalling, going to court, holding press conferences to clear up questions and confusions -- in order to get ten times the amount of criminal evidence Star had.

AND. We don't have the time for playing media games that claim we're keeping Trump guessing. That it's "strategy." Impeachment is too important for that and should be handled accordingly.

I KNOW we're at the beginning. We were at the beginning a week ago. Already Pelosi has to explain to the public about how slow this acquiring of "the facts" will be. Even TV commenters and anchors say this is headed toward playing out too slowly.

But. Congress' constitutional duty boils down to impeachment proceedings.

I see no better time than now to get past the idea of doing impeachment the hard way.

My stance is that, in short order -- not necessarily NOW -- they don't have to "get on with it!" --

But soon -- just by way of example -- say, two stalled subpoenas, or stalled tax documents -- the House will really need to do its constitutional duty, as the public will see it, to *really* begin formal impeachment proceedings.

Not take the hard way. There's *always* the disgusting Star model for THAT.

I'm surprised you'd even use that impeachment example, almost as if you wanted to show Republican impeachment history as dogma.

Come ON.

EDIT: Let's put this on pause. Gotta watch Ari.
