(Newsweek)   Democrats are excited, VERY excited, as Trump's odds of impeachment surge. Look at those odds surging. Those turgid, throbbing odds, thrusting and surging; surging and ramming, the engorged surging YES OH GOD YES THEY SURGE SO GOOD   (newsweek.com) divider line

Finding out if a sitting president can be indicted would be more interesting. I think he can indicted then be impeached

What are the odds that 67 Senators will vote to remove the President from office and replace him with Pence?

The worst thing that could happen to the Dems is for Trump to be removed from office before 2020.  

That the GOP doesn't realize this is both entertaining and frightening.

The Dems have little say in this. Trump will be impeached when and only if the GOP grows a spine.

The Hill said that Trump is going to win again in 2020, so we have to remove him NOW, obviously!

Yeah, I'm just not seeing him win re-election.   I know I know... Bush '04.  But GWB started with a 50% approval and got his approval rating up to 85%.   Also Kerry "I opposed the war before I supported the war" was about as effective as using RMoney to run against Obama with the ACA as an issue.  

I think there are even going to be enough on the right who are just tired of the winning and wouldn't mind a democrat to complain about.  Simultaneously I don't see the Dem base deflating anytime soon. 

Plus, starting in January, its going to be death by a thousand cuts for this administration.

yes this was all typed by a nervous guy for the seventh time this week (and its only Sunday)

been listening to Maddow's Bag Men podcast this weekend. Agnew actually tried to get impeachment proceedings rolling because he thought they would be easier to survive than an indictment and if they started, the indictment may never come because "the House is handling this"

/lots of parallels to today
//Agnew asking for an impeachment made Nixon go "Hmmmm..." And forced his resignation

there will be hold outs but they will likely be from those who can't afford to have him go down because of their own corruption getting exposed or those who don't plan on having q political future. Those that want to keep going beyond 2024 will throw him under

somedude210: look, they've already started murmurs of turning their back on Trump. Indictments is a very public cover to do so


Yes.  Indictments are.  That doesn't mean the Rs will actually do anything other than cover their asses.  They know Trump will stab them in the back faster than they can blink.  Supporting him maybe the only safe bet for them.

Personally speaking, I'd be more than happy to see all of them drawn and quartered slowly over several months.  Give those coming into power time to realize that selling out the country you're supposed to be serving is a bad idea.

Constitutionally it might be possible to indict a sitting policy but DoJ policy forbids it.  Mueller is bound by DoJ policy - so no indictment while he is President.

This.  I'm not sure I want Trump to me kicked out of office before 2020.  Do you recall that scene in a Bronx Tale when these bikers are harassing an Italian bar and the mafia guy shows up and asks them nicely to leave and they don't leave.  I'll post the clip if you want.  It could work out that way.

2018-12-16 06:26:52 PM  
Tricky.  I'd say don't do it unless you have a somewhat reasonable chance of conviction  An impeachment with a 48-52 vote helps Trump.  A 65-35 vote hurts him, even if he isn't convicted, and may be the best possible outcome for Democrats.  The best possible outcome for America is if Trump is removed, and if they have the support from the Senate they should do it without delay.  I doubt Pence will be much better than Trump at getting stuff done, but he is less likely to start World War III.  Or even Trade War III.

DOJ policy doesn't apply to the states, many of whom are already running their own investigations into Trump's dealings. (Bonus: Putin's Putain can't pardon his co-conspirators of state charges, either.)
