Trumps protection from impeachment and conviction is shrinking quickly.

Trump lost his biggest protection from impeachment, the House. Most of the Trump cult followers in congress are in the House, not the Senate. Next month they become nothing more than back ground noise. The Democrats will impeach.

Trump needs the Republicans in the Senate to protect him. This past week Trump pissed and shit all over them. He back stabbed them on the spending bill. Some members already went home, they had to get on a plan and fly back to DC. You can't tell me they are not pissed.

When Mattis resigned because of Trump, the Republicans woke up for the first time in two years and realized we are in great danger. It was a fucking miracle.

Trump pulling out of Syria and maybe Afghanistan has turned many Republicans against Trump.

I don't know if there are 20 Republicans in the Senate who would vote for conviction. But we are getting closer.

Things are only going to get worse, a lot worse. It may get to the point where the Republicans in the Senate have no choice but to convict.

1. McConnell is blaming Dems as we speak.

Nothing will change until that guy is gone

2. I had hope for a few

But if even after all of this they won't see reason then whatever.

Sea Lions had moderate value as an ally but she's basically irrelevant as an enemy. So peace out lady.

Hopefully the tale of a young latina lawmaker who ended up stranded and alone doesn't go unnoticed.

3. When he fires the Fed Chairman, that should do it.

4. Unfortunately, the main barrier against impeachment is that Congressional R's are as dirty as he is.

They know that once Trump is no longer there as the lightning rod, they'll be scrutinized too. Congressfolk can go to jail.

5. What Republicans say in public is not what they say in private. Remember that.

When they speak in public they have to lie to their base. Thats what they created and they are now being forced to live with. It's destroying them. If the Republicans tell the truth to their base, their base will turn on them.

It has gotten so bad the Republicans will now lie even when there is a video that proves they are lying. They are blaming the Democrats for the shut down. They have lost all honor, all self respect.
