      I know that everyone wants impeachment proceedings to begin. But no one talks about the Senate. This is the real reason that no impeachment has begun. And just yesterday they confirmed another unqualified person for lifetime judgeship. If we cannot remove these folks from office. Doesn’t that leave them in a stronger place. Just yesterday an appeals court struck down the omuluments case.

      • July 11, 2019 at 9:24 am

        Sometimes I think about it like watching the house burn down and not even grabbing a hose. Maybe you can’t save the entire structure but maybe you’ll save some rooms and some of your most important and valuable mementos. Maybe what you save can be the foundation upon which you rebuild. But to just stand by and watch your life’s investment and the place that represents your home burn down to the ground and not call 911 and not lift a finger to stop it feels incomprehensible. AND if the rationale for not beginning impeachment hearings because we don’t have a majority in the Senate is the ultimate justification for standing by, then why are the House Democrats passing so much great legislation only to see it die in the Senate??? It’s the same principle! It reminds me of the power Mitch McConnell levied to stop our country from being informed about the Russian incursion into our election. Would we let that happen again, knowing what we know now???

        What I fear most is not only Trump being enabled and emboldened to continue his brazen criminality but the historic precedent it sets for future presidents to do the same. There are no longer any guard rails. In my opinion, impeachment hearings gets the evidence and the facts of the case, WHICH ARE DAMNING, into the public record and the public eye not only for now but for the history of our country. In my mind, it should not be a political calculation. It should be a moral one, one based on whether Trump broke the law. HE HAS AND HE CONTINUES TO BREAK IT DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY. And the best we can do is write sternly worded tweets of disappointment and just sit there while subpoenas and document requests are ignored and more lies are the result? Launching impeachment hearings would make the accountability for all that more real and the lack of cooperation and brazen defiance MORE PUNISHABLE. It’s a whole different legal process. I don’t care how the GOP reacts. I feel it must be done for the citizens of our country. We know they’ll lie and distort because they do that NO MATTER WHAT. How can impeachment hearings where the truth is exposed leave us in a worse place in 2020 than we are now? I don’t see how it can, no matter what the Senate does. I want to see us FIGHT for our democracy.

        I don’t feel like I worked to elect a blue wave to be an innocent bystander. I am disappointed that with so much evidence of wrong doing, we are helpless to even appear to be fixing it. Instead, we get bizarre statements about “he’s not worth it” or he’ll “self-impeach” which make zero sense to me. I believe our country is worth fighting for and I would rather fight with every tool in the tool box expressly designed for this purpose instead of leaving all the tools in the shed and locking them up.

        Our house is burning down. I say, grab a hose.

        • July 11, 2019 at 12:54 pm

          I feel exactly the same, which is why I have been working via Indivisible to persuade House Democrats to sign on. Nancy is usually politically savvy, but this should not be a political calculation. This is nothing like the GOP impeaching Clinton.

            Judith, if you feel my words will appeal to your fellow travelers, please go ahead and post by all means. I’m not on Facebook nor is it necessary to give credit. I’m grateful to know my struggle with all this resonates.

            It pains me to witness our Congress right now. Nancy Pelosi is not only my Speaker but she has been my rep for years and years. I have supported her in the strongest terms all this time. But now I really do not understand what she’s doing. I just don’t get it.

              Many of the Freshman women are on powerful committees …even the ones who bash her…i get email from my Congresswoman..and others from PA….all the time…talking about substantive issues…i think two of the 4 have joined the chorus for Impeachment…my Congress Woman…Madeline Dean…has…she is on the Judiciary and Oversight Committee…

              i think that some see the DEMS as the last line of DEFENSE for our Democracy…when it actually is #WeThePeople…

          Impeachment has always been a political process…Even Mueller could not bring himself top say that Trump committed a crime……. Mueller who saw all of Trump’s criminality up close and personal……

          the DOJ memo about not indicting a sitting President is a political memo…all this is political…

          While all of us are clamoriing for Trump’s head…Pelosi is worried about protecting the Dem Majority…and to expand that majority…in 2020..

          Justice Dems bashing Pelosi…Never Trumpers bashing Pelosi and the Dems…Indivisble calling to replace Pelosi…the press pressing their DEMS in Disarry mantra…

          Things are rather Fragile….

          TRump has us all topsy turvy…he throws out one bombshell distraction right after another bombshell distraction…it feels like we are going from pillar to post….

          but we have to remain focused…

          what are our goals…what do we wish to achieve…what is our agenda…we have to be about more than putting out TRUMP’s fires…

    Good Morning TODVille,

    I don’t know about you guys, but on the issue between Pelosi and the 4 extra liberals women (Bless their hearts!), I side with Pelosi because she is a mature politician and very savvy at what she does. These 4 young women, some of whom remind me of a Bernie Sanders wannabe, are way above their heads sometimes.

    • 32 catrst
      July 11, 2019 at 8:02 am

      When I find two things that seem to contradict each other yet are both true I try to settle myself with the idea that paradoxes exist. For myself I want Nancy Pelosi to get all the backup she needs and I understand she is trying not to fall into Trump’s plan having yet another effort to hold him accountable fail before the election so he can say he was exonerated. At the same time I am wanting to support the four freshman women who are so gifted and who are needed in our efforts to right this ship of state.

      We are going to have to learn that we are not choosing sides but trying to be a part of the discernment needed to hold up our end as citizens/voters. Dealing with the level of corruption and sociopathology we have in our GOP at this time is going to be like walking through a field of land mines.

      • 33 tnmtngirl1
        July 11, 2019 at 9:29 am

        Oh, I so totally agree with you! In this case, I honestly do not fully support and trust Pelosi. Yes, she is experienced and maybe the best ever at counting votes. However, this situation is not about counting votes. Just like the rest of us, she has NEVER had to deal with something like this and frankly, I think she is “doing what she’s always done.” This mess calls for something more. I agree with the tweet from Lincoln’s Bible and what our Bob says.

        She made a big mistake of saying what she said about the four. Then, she did the talk to her caucus about “we must stay together.” Well, she wasn’t modeling that behavior in treating these four promising young women the way she did. My two cents………….

        • 34 No Child Left Behind
          July 11, 2019 at 2:18 pm

          Catrst and TNMTNGirl1, I couldn’t agree more. I simply wish that Dems wouldn’t fall into “my way or the highway” freedom caucus attitude who chased its old leader, John Boehner. Besides, anyone that disparage a fellow Dem because s/he is “old” as oppose of s/he being younger with all these great new ideas is being silly. I tend to recognize wisdom in seasoned politicians and Pelosi certainly is one well rounded Speaker.

  13. July 11, 2019 at 9:28 am

    Whoever told Trump he can refute a Supreme Court decision with an EO is a real idiot. I guess their plan is to go to court and make this an extended battle. But that’s stupid, too, because it’s stipulated in the Constitution and in this cycle it must by law be carried out by April 1, 2020. Are they taking that to the Supreme Court as well? This is really a CF of gargantuan proportions.
