To the tune of The Christmas Song, "Trump's nuts roasting while old Lindsey cries. Rand Paul curling 'round his toes. Tyrant Donald being hung by his lies, While Trump's mob falls like dominoes."
What if, the longer Trump allows this refusal of a fair trial to drag on, the more public hearings into his impeachable offenses are held and the more Articles of Impeachment may be voted on, making an even bigger the case will be when the trial finally does take place?
Donald Trump will remain "the Impeached President," not the "acquitted president," for as long as Nancy Pelosi wants to keep him that way. He won't be able to brag, just gripe about the System being unfair - a subject that he should stay away from.
For a Senator to defy the Constitution, and stand in open defiance of it because he worships a freakish would-be dictator, is beyond outrage, and cannot be tolerated.
Trump has already given up his right to be free from self-incrimination. He has publicly defended his acts and motivations and acted in a patterned way to repress testimony by direct order.
We're starting to hear a new narrative: that representative democracy's day is done, that people just can't be bothered with participatory government. Democracy seems to be a lose-lose situation for us "end users." How wrong is it possible to be? Wait for it!
The 2020 election is an existential moment for the United States. Next November will decide whether this country recovers its sovereignty or is dragged deeper under Russian influence. 2020 will determine whether the Russian/Republican vision of remaking U.S. democracy into a dictatorship will be fulfilled or buried.
Looks like President Trump will be impeached, and smart money says, before Christmas - accompanied by very strong censure (which could include taking away, or closely monitoring, many of Trump's responsibilities).
If Trump's Base was to unite with us to throw this idiot tyrant out of our lives, then we would owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude. We need them. It could be a natural thing, like the body's healing processes. Think of the sense of shared beginning. The peace.
Why exactly is it obvious that their focus is on Ukraine? This is a general impeachment, Trump has committed hundreds of crimes. And, "our committee's" job is to recommend charges to be included in the Articles of Impeachment.
