It's a timeline and a Senate thing...

Posted By: Rocker Ute

I used the Uno analogy because I think it applies. So suppose they move to impeach today. That impeachment process could be dragged out to mid elections, to which even if found guilty in the impeachment process, it would take 2/3 of the Senate to remove him from office. That will not happen.

Then that is fodder for a guy like Trump to claim witch hunts, incompetence among Democrats and 'total exoneration.' It'll work too. Or it may give him time to recover from the whole mess - we have a pretty short term memory.

PLUS, if he does win, and you've already impeached him but failed to remove him from office, you have almost no recourse in the next term, he would have to commit new impeachable offenses. Whereas if you wait, either he'll be removed from office by losing the election, or you have an option to pursue impeachment then with a probable stronger Dem presence.

Here is my prediction (which given my prediction that there was no chance Trump would be elected, I would take with a high degree of skepticism): Trump will lose the general election and once out of office the obstruction of justice charges will then be brought against him, and hopefully justice will be served.

If you listened to Mueller, he basically said because there was no constitutional way to indict a sitting president, they didn't even use it as a consideration, but he was not found to not be guilty of obstruction. In other words, he obstructed but there is no recourse the Justice Department could even take.

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: I agree. The Senate won't convict so Trump will claim victory. Hell, he claims victory even when he can't. Just look at his tweets after the Mueller presser. (nm)

Rocker Ute icon NEW: They expect to gain the theatrics to get re-elected. They want to be the ones who put Mueller on the stand and "asked the hard questions". Then they can point their finger to it as to how they stood for America. Theatrics, nothing more than that. (nm)

Utahraptor icon NEW: It will be a new ball game if the Supreme Court orders Trump to comply with a House subpoena to turn over documents it needs to investigate the President and his administration.

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: Correct. He's already using the investigation as an excuse for him not getting anything done on infrastructure.
