For John, BLUF: Impeachment is just the opening round. Getting a conviction in the Senate is a harder row to hoe. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Hot Air, by [Captain] Ed Morrissey, 3 January 2019.
Here is the lede plus one:
It was the question of the 2018 midterms: will Democrats use a House majority to pursue impeachment of Donald Trump? The answer was always consistent — That would be “premature.” We need to wait for Robert Mueller to finish up. No, no, no …Well, there is this headline from today's LA Times:
Rep. Brad Sherman plans to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump on Thursday, the first day of Democratic control of the House.All they have to do is be calm and deliberate and they can't even do that.
Sherman (D-Northridge) is reintroducing a measure that he first rolled out in 2017. But this year it carries more political significance: The decision of whether to act on it rests with Democrats — not Trump’s Republican allies.
Sherman’s articles of impeachment accuse Trump of obstructing justice by firing former FBI Director James B. Comey, among other wrongdoing.
By the way, Mr James Comey needed to be fired and it is possible a President Clinton would have done the same. I believe Rep Sherman is either not well informed about the clue bag or he is just hiding behind a Democratic Party Wall, build to keep out, not illegal aliens, but, the truth.
