What's Missing in Ms Warren's Impeachment Call

What's missing in Ms Warren's impeachment call is anything remotely like a strategy toward 67 Senate votes after the House acts.

While she and others may have a strategy, it'd be heartwarming to know that even w.o details, because the single event that could warp-speed us into fascism and move us far beyond the current tips of the hat to fascism we see weekly now, would be an impeachment vote in the House followed by a Senate acquittal.

At that point those arguing that the House gesture's important, preserves our integrity and future...that will be moot and the nation as we have known it in its better eras will be gone and unlikely to be found.

Excellent Passover/Easter to those who take note of these days.

The timing of Impechment proceedings would the critical factor in determining the outcome....

If the Dems could take the Senate during the next cycle, there would be a narrow window of opportunity in which the Senate could vote to find Trump guilty pursuant to articles of impeachment passed by the House....

A tall order to say the least....

Impeachment by the House and trial in the Senate maybe seen as separate actions though when done in tandem in accordance with constitutional protocol may result in removal from office...

Impeachment can be timed in such a manner as to have the vote taken in the House prior to the election...

The gambit is to lay the groundwork for indictment...Which should take place within weeks. if not days of him vacating the Oval Office ...

This works only if Trump loses his bid for a second term...

Unlike Nixon, Trump will not resign. His entire base and nearly all of the Senate Republicans will be drinking the kool aid before that happens...

I hardly trust the Ds to navigate tight windows.

Comment by Ron Powell on April 20, 2019 at 1:51pm

Not quite as difficult as walking a camel through the eye of a needle...

What is right has to include due consideration of the moral and practical consequences of actions taken. What I want from Ms Warren is a Senate strategy. If e are saying that there cannot be a successful one, then I an concerned that impeachment will do our nation more harm than good.

Comment by Ron Powell on April 20, 2019 at 2:08pm

Impechment is the indictment by the House of Representatives.

As a separate and distinct act it is an expression of the will of the people re whether the President or any other high ranking official is above the law (Constitution)...

The 'strategy' need not consist of the process concluding with a finding of guilt by the Senate...

Subjecting the President to a trial In the Senate would send a clear message and cause so-called 'strict construction conservatives' (Republicans) to either put up or shut up....

This is the very reason why many establishment Republicans were against the Trump candidacy...

Ron. I know the definitions and the procedures. 

I also believe that a Senate strategy must be articulated. 

Comment by Ron Powell on April 20, 2019 at 2:50pm

As long as Mitch McConnell is Senate Majority Leader, there is no "winning" Senate strategy to be articulated other than forcing a trial and a vote.

McConnell would seek to obstruct and delay proceedings that would force Republicans to openly defend a criminal.

Republican senators running for reelection would run for cover and strict construction conservatives would be hard pressed to remain so while going through the rhetorical contortions that would be required to defend a vote for acquittal.

Exposing the Republicans as disingenuous hypocrites might be the best/only strategic gain to look for going forward.

Comment by Jonathan Wolfman on April 20, 2019 at 2:53pm

My concern is that that route is choseb, by many, may figleaf the fear that Ds cannot beat him at the polls. 

Comment by Ron Powell on April 20, 2019 at 3:36pm

The Dems won last time. They just didn't win where it would count the most in the electoral college....

A mistake that should easily be remedied...
