Recommended Posts

He should make a move on Ted Cruz's wife.... better still, ask Ted first.  He'll say yes.

I think mooch prolly isn't welcome, IDK if you've seen but he's basically as anti-Trump as George Conway on Twitter nowadays.

Remember when the GOP was spooked over Bill Clinton's travel office guy?  Livingstone is the name I'm thinking of....

Then, I ask you ... why was this specific criminal violation not included in an article of impeachment.   Why soft pedal it with the "abuse of power" -- which pretty much all presidents have done, or "obstruction of justice" which would have gutted Executive Privilege?

We are at the stage we knew three years ago we'd get to: when all the adults have been run out of the room and have all been replaced by the sycophant stooges.

for one thing, the House was pretty clear that they did not want to create a precedent that only statue violations were impeachable. The House impeached him for his behavior wrt the HOR - in not dispersing appropriated funds and contempt of Congress' investigatory powers.  They did not want go down the rat hole of turning an impeachment -  where the standard of evidence is inherently political, into a 'beyond reasonable doubt' criminal trial. And you have to admit that they succeeded brilliantly.  NO-ONE disputed the weight of the evidence presented and you didn't hear one Senator attempt to defend Trump based on 'beyond reasonable doubt', which they all would have if the House had gone the criminal route.

Given the reality that he was never going to be removed anyway - leveraging the proceeding to the House's choice of standard of evidence was as big a win as was available. Everyone has agreed he did it and the GOP Senate has declared that they just gave him a pass anyway. That is a completely different and better result for the Dems than would have been achieved by an acquittal in a criminal style prosecution of a statute violation.

I don't know if Pelosi plays chess, but she has shown a lot more skill at multidimensional thinking  than I would have given her credit for 3 years ago.

it was in paragraph 2 of article 1

Quote

Using the powers of his high office, President Trump solicited the interference of a foreign government, Ukraine, in the 2020 United States Presidential election. He did so through a scheme or course of conduct that included soliciting the Government of Ukraine to publicly announce investigations that would benefit his reelection, harm the election prospects of a political opponent, and influence the 2020 United States Presidential election to his advantage.

He's doing it in reverse in real time with New York.  Cancel your investigations and I'll drop the specific administrative punishment I've imposed on your citizens.
