#1 None of this succeeds without active GOP cooperation.

We'll soon know what kind "two party system" we have.

#2 We are witnessing constitutional government dissipating before our eyes.

Sadly, VDH has it right in about ten words.

#3 A classical historian sees clearly what the rest of us sleepwalkers don't: our Shitshow Clowns think they're a praetorian guard, here to save Rome from Caligula Deploribus.

#4 This impeachment show trial is bad for the country. Stalin would be proud. If allowed to continue, the presidency will be weakened for every president hereafter, both Dem and Pub. Future POTUS' will be knee-capped and unable to conduct any foreign or domestic policies. There will be no balance of power between the branches of government.

The outcome of any future elections dissatisfy someone; that is the nature of elections. The impeachment will begin after the election and swing into full effect during the transition period.

I hope wiser heads prevail in the House other than Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler and some of the other Dems who hate Trump. Why do they hate Trump? Because he outsmarted them and upset their plans.
They hate him because he tends to be successful in managing the Executive branch of the government. They hate him because he has gone about breaking up a criminal cabal in government. They hate him because he, an elected President, has the audacity to challenge the authority of an unelected part of the government. I hope he crushes this bunch of criminals.

#5 All that is subsequent, JohnQC. “Have you heard his accent?” Thy hate him because he is not part of the political in-crowd. He went to the wrong school, studied the analytical subject of economics instead of a verbal subject like history or poli-sci, and is not a career politician. And they hate him for not losing gracefully, as a Republican should.

He simply does not know his place.

#6 It was clear the day after his election that the coup had started...

#7 @49Pan
Same as with Brexit.

It's like a twin, the bureaucracy decided they'd ignore what did not suit them.

#8 The betrayal of the office of the President of the United States by the Washington establishment is quite revealing. Having swam in those waters some years back, I am not quite sure why I am now surprised.

Strange about those people, once you leave the beltway they seldom write, they seldom call. It's a world unto itself.

#9 (1) Win in a landslide (2) Prosecute those involved in the Coup. Put an honest liberal like Dershwitz in charge to keep the circus away from the functioning government. (3) Convince Trump to not opine on the thing until it plays out.

#10 This is the second time the Democratic Party has tried to overthrow the United States government when free elections gave a result they didn't like. Are they going to get a chance at a third try?

#12 Stomp them at the ballot box.

Get out the vote. Volunteer. Make phone calls. Meet people at a coffee shop.

Make sure that the Silent Najority actually gets out and VOTES NEXT NOVEMBER.
