IN OTHER NEWS…

 

That’s it for the last couple days.  I didn’t have time to go through the Rumor Mill in the last couple days.  I’ve been busy.

There’s a lot of frustration with how slow things are going on the Impeachment front, but for once I’m not freaking out.  Impeachment is no longer an if but a when, and we’re building to it.  We’ll get one shot at it, and I think the Contempt of Congress cases will be included.  Trump is ordering people to actively ignore subpoenas.  These orders will be at the top of his Obstruction of Congress charges.

Think about it…

Congress will get one shot at impeaching and removing Trump before the 2020 election.  Everything will need to be brought to the table.  All of his financial crimes, the witness tampering, the Russian and Saudi work, the abuse of immigrants and his inaction on Puerto Rico.  But what is one thing that is above party lines?

Telling Congress to go fuck themselves.  That move will cause everyone to get behind impeachment.

One of the things with Impeachment is that the articles, or charges, are voted on individually.  They aren’t voted on collectively unless Congress decides to do so.  If an Impeachment resolution passes the House Judiciary, the articles are voted on before a full session of Congress.  The charges can be voted on individually.  That way, if a lawmaker says that activity doesn’t reach criminality for all of them but only a couple, they can vote for those couple.

Think of it like a Grand Jury.  Let’s say there’s 20 charges that are being discussed.  Bob allegedly shot and killed Gary, then drove the getaway car into a McDonald’s seriously injuring Ethel and Edith.  Some jury members might question if there is enough evidence of Bob shooting Gary, but the store had security cam footage of Bob driving a car into the restaurant and hitting Edith and Ethel.  That jury member might not vote for the murder charge, but they will for the vehicular assault, property damage, and the other 10 related crimes.

That’s what I think we’re building to.  Trump might not be impeached and removed for Russia, but for Obstruction of Congress and Obstruction of Justice.  And tax evasion.  And money laundering.  And being a dick.

I’ll try to be back in a couple days.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
