Impeaching trump IS THE COMPROMISE.
If democrats were actually being divisive & uncompromising, they'd be using PATRIOTACT to wipe the republican party off the face of the earth once and for all. Theres a good argument for declaring the GOP a terrorist organization and, thanks to republican overreation to 911, we have the power and authority to seize the assets of the GOP and ALL its donors and lock them all up indefinitely WITHOUT TRIAL!

Yes its a bad law, no it shouldnt be on the books. But regardless, it is on the books still and it lays out a legal framework for removing the republicans not just from our political system, but from our society FOREVER. So Dont give me this crap that impeaching trump is a step too far.... its a baby step. the republicans should be bringing us his head on a silver platter and begging us not to go any farther.

It would be nice to see what role his "Senior Advisors" had in this also.  Certainly Nepotism Barbie and Slenderman had some input.  Let's see the emails and texts.

So why aren't they being detained?  They could be actual terrorists.  Isn't it in the interest of national security to hold on to them and move them away from power while we investigate them?

Dont look at me, i didnt write that stupid farking law. Since the day it was passed ive been railing against it. Its the most unpatriotic bullshiat bill thats ever been written. It shouldve been struck down years ago.

And frankly, the best way to strike down a bad law is to enforce it.

Honestly, this.  Use it to destroy the GOP, and then when anyone who's left cries foul, go, "You're the ones who passed this law.  You voted for it.  You supported it.  Now you're mad we're using it?  OK, hypocrites, let's throw the law out, then.  We finally agree"

The inaction she is complaining about isn't a policy complaint. Based on her impeachment talk she is angry that Biden has gotten away with being allowed to launder billions of dollars for the Chinese as part of him being a mobster and that he stole the election by stuffing ballot boxes with millions of fake votes from the dead and never born.

AKA the 9/11 Truther and QAnon advocate just so happens to consume every right wing conspiracy theory she comes across and regurgitates it because it confirms her priors. Imagine that.

A better way to do that is to use section 3 of the 14th Amendment. The Republican Party has definitely "engaged in insurrection or rebellion against [the United States], or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof." recently, and arguably for well over a decade. And the only way to make someone with those problems eligible is with a 2/3 majority vote.

Expel every Republican in office, disqualify every Republican who has previously held office, and RICO the party as a criminal organization.

These are many but not all of the top "Stop the Steal" facilitators that Trump relied upon to foster his fraud!  They whipped up the MAGA Cult for the January 6 "Insurrection Day"  and are the ones now calling for "unity" and "Healing" after their gang rape rape of Lady Liberty and attempted lynching of an American Vice President!  Dear Leader Trump egged everyone on to join him marching to the Capitol, then slunk back to the White House to fiddle with glee as they stormed our third pillar of Government like the ChickenHawk he is!  Nixon is a decent man as compared to Trump and I can't believe I said that!

I would think the part about the fake votes would be pretty easy to prove--it's not like there aren't voter rosters. They should take that to court as soon as they can. I'm sure with even a little evidence, the snowball can start an avalanche. I get money laundering for a foreign power is harder to prove, though it's shameful to think someone who does that can get elected President. Obviously some financial disclosure should be necessary to hold the highest office in the land, to make sure we aren't electing a fraud controlled by foreign connections or compromising information.

well, okay.   I'll make this as simple as I can for you.  Follow my bouncing balls.

*Detaining anyone forever without trial is wrong.

*Using the law against a political party with the goal being "to wipe the republican party off the face of the earth once and for all"  is wrong.

*Using the law to seize the assets of GOP donors is wrong.

*Using the Patriot Act to do any of the above may or may not be possible but I'm not going to believe a Fark poster because he is likely not a lawyer and therefore likely...wrong.

Also, just to be a pedant, she can't impeach the President-Elect on the 21st. By the 21st, he'll be the President.

You are correct, all of those things are morally wrong, but if legal, I will take delight in seeing them used against the people who made them so. All of them, left or right, should they engage in terrorism.
