Impeach ... NOW!

Last edited Mon Apr 22, 2019, 06:57 PM - Edit history (19)

In his report, Robert Meuller handed us ten, separate counts of obstruction of justice and said, in effect, “If I could say that these were NOT criminal offenses, I would say so,” yet he refused to deny that these were criminal offenses. In other words, in Meuller’s opinion, at least ten of President Trump’s actions WERE criminal offenses, but because the Justice Department can not indict a sitting President, Meuller placed the matter squarely in the hands of the House of Representatives to proceed with Articles of Impeachment. Only Nancy Pelosi can make this call, and I will respect her decision on the subject, regardless, but I think that we should use the power that we have (control of the House) to impeach President Donald Trump. Here’s why:

1) We want to stand for the rule of law.
We have a President who has demonstrated, time and again, that he considers himself above the law. Allowing this philosophy of executive power to stand without challenge would make us complicit in the erosion of our democratic republic’s foundation—government by rule of law, as opposed to government by the whims and “divine inspiration” of the monarch (precisely what Trump perceives himself to be, just as any corporate CEO might imagine). I want my party to be on the right side of history on this subject. We have an opportunity to call out a gross display of “supreme executive power by divine right,” and I think that we have a duty to do so.

2) We need to punt the ball.
Currently, we have three committee chairs investigating these matters (Cummings, Nadler, and Schiff). My sense is that the American people are sick of talking about this. They generally concede that Trump is a scum-bucket, but they are more concerned about whether or not they can pay their bills next month. The more we investigate this matter, the more we play into Trump’s “witch hunt” narrative. So, I say IMPEACH, and do it quickly. Do it quickly, and then drop it, entirely. Make this Mitch McConnell’s problem. Let the Senate deal with it. Democrats will have done their Constitutional duty once the House of Representatives has impeached the President. We can then just abandon our investigations and start focusing on the things that matter to Americans—health care, student loan debt (Thank you, Elizabeth Warren.), climate change, and the increasing wealth gap in our society.

3) Impeachment improves our chances of taking control of the Senate in 2020.
I want all the Republican senators who are up for re-election in 2020 on the record, here. I want a YES or a NO from them on Trump’s guilt. If they say “YES,” they lose their base. We win. If they say “NO,” they lose credibility and lose the center because most Americans are convinced that Trump is, clearly, guilty as sin. Again, we win. This is why it is so important to pass Articles of Impeachment QUICKLY. McConnell can delay, and save his members an embarrassing vote, if Democrats delay the process by insisting upon further investigations. What Mueller has given us is PLENTY to proceed with Articles of Impeachment. If you recall that one of the Articles filed against Nixon was "lying to the American people," it is obvious that we have plenty of grounds to impeach President Trump ... NOW. No more investigation is needed.

4) There's very little down-side.
In the unlikely event that we end up with a President Pence, for a short time, the nation will be safer, and history indicates that Pence will not be elected President in 2020–just ask Gerald Ford and Al Gore. Again, we win.

It is indeed rare, in politics, when doing the right thing is highly likely to result in an excellent outcome with very little risk of a negative outcome, but I think that this is one of those occasions.

Speaker Pelosi, I implore you ...

Impeach ... NOW!

3. Yes, but no.

I would prefer to impeach President Trump quickly and get this issue out of the news cycle so that Democrats can then focus on the real issues facing Americans today. If Trump’s crimes appear in the news, I want Republicans responsible for it. That will happen if Democrats impeach quickly and then let the Senate handle this.

Thank you for this reply.

19. I don't think I understand your point here.

I think that Speaker Pelosi could push Articles of Impeachment through the House very quickly. In fact, I think that she could get it done in 30 days. After that, it’s the Senate’s problem, and I welcome the idea of Mitch McConnell dragging out the trial for nine months or more. That will be his doing, not ours, and we can spend that time focusing on what matters to the electorate. We will be free to abandon the alleged “witch hunt” as soon as Articles of Impeachment are passed.

Does that make sense? Thank you for the reply.

24. Yes, that makes perfect sense, but again,

......please know that I'm agreeing with you, for I'm all in favor of a quick impeachment! However, I tend to feel that it's a bit idealistic to assume that it'll be that easy. Even if impeachment proceedings were to occur quickly by the Congress, the right-wing members of the Senate and their cronies will very likely drag this out as long as they possibly can while using the same old tactics they've used all along, particularly the "art of deception and distraction." In other words, the right could very likely use this as yet another tool to deceive the public that it's yet another "witch hunt" of sorts, and it could potentially keep us from focusing on "what matters to the electorate." It's worked in the past for them, so why shouldn't they try it again? and again? I'm certainly not implying that it will indeed happen, but nothing surprises me these days about those clowns. If we are to proceed with impeachment, I'm only suggesting that it could potentially be a very rough ride.

Conversely, I'm certainly not in favor of delaying such an action, either, for the very last thing we need is to further embolden this bastard.

So, hopefully you'll understand where I'm coming from. From my standpoint, I guess I'm just not envisioning any solution without some difficulty ahead, but I do agree that we should indeed press forward with this as quickly as possible, if for no other reason than to see how it plays out.

27. I have tremendous faith in Speaker Pelosi.

If she decides to go forward with Articles of Impeachment, they WILL pass in the House of Representatives, and they will pass very quickly. I have never seen a better arm-twister (LBJ, perhaps, rivals her). What Speaker Pelosi wants, her caucus will give her. It is all up to the Speaker. There is little to nothing that the Republican minority in the House could do to stop her.

31. That's the least of my worries.

It is unlikely that the Senate will convict Trump, admittedly. The Senate has NEVER convicted a President under its Constitutional power to do so, but I want that to be Mitch McConnell’s problem and not ours. I want Democrats to focus on the bread and butter issues that matter to most Americans, instead, and let the Republicans discuss the rot that’s eating away at their party.

Thank you for an interesting discussion.

36. You know, I'm not trying to argue with you......

.....but do you really believe for a moment that Rump & the Republicans will be so kind as to simply let the chips fall upon ol' Turtle Face to take care of the impeachment problem solely upon himself? all with very few repercussions to the Democrats? All of these guys have essentially become blood brothers - thick and thin - and they're in it so deep that there's no turning back for any of them. Fact is, even though this may initially fall into McConnell's lap, I'm quite sure that the right will do their very best to make their problem our problem. Just when most of us think that we've seen the worst of it, I'm afraid to say that the party has only just begun. Idealistically speaking, I "want" the very same things you want, but wanting to achieve a goal vs the realistic means of obtaining that goal can be two different things.

BTW, just a few hours ago Pelosi announced that the Dems should use caution toward the notion of impeaching Rump. As it appears now, impeachment proceedings won't likely begin anytime soon.

And, you're welcome for the interesting discussion. Thank you, too!

I just want Democrats to stop investigating and stop talking about this. I would prefer to put this ball in McConnell’s court and, instead, focus on a positive agenda for America. I think that a quick Impeachment could accomplish this goal.

43. Allow me to add ...

You know, I suspect that there is a significant number of Republicans who would love to get rid of President Trump. They can’t say so, publicly, because their base supports the President fervently, but I am desperately curious to see how things will play out in the Senate once Articles of Impeachment are forwarded to that body. It could be very interesting, and, again, I see little to no downside for Democrats from the spectacle we may see in the Senate.

Just food for thought ... 🤔👍🏼

4. Yes, and it's the only way we will get all of Mueller's grand jury info.

From the Washington Post:

In the face of Barr’s decision not to disclose any of the Mueller report to the public or even to the House Judiciary Committee chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D- N.Y.) until Barr and his team have scrubbed the report of grand jury information (and other material), Nadler and committee Democrats have authorized a subpoena for the full report, setting the stage for a court fight over the committee’s right to see grand jury information. Although the public need underlying the request for disclosure in McKeever was much less pressing, the decision in that case undermines the position of Nadler’s committee, because the controlling federal rule contains no exception allowing congressional “oversight” committees to demand access to otherwise secret grand jury proceedings.

One of the exceptions to grand jury secrecy is disclosure “preliminary to or in connection with a judicial proceeding.” To authorize disclosure of the Watergate grand jury information, the special prosecutor’s office argued that the House had authorized its Judiciary Committee to conduct a formal impeachment inquiry and that such an inquiry could be fairly analogized to a “grand jury” investigation and thus a judicial proceeding. Both the district court and the court of appeals agreed, and the Judiciary Committee obtained both the report and the underlying evidence.

Significantly, the appeals court decision several days ago reaffirmed that exception. All three judges agreed that an impeachment inquiry falls within the “exception for judicial proceedings” and “coheres” with other rulings about the proper scope of grand jury secrecy.

I found someone who gets it.

The dirt on Trump and his crime family is contained in the grand jury testimony. Barr will never hand it over, he will fight subpoenas. The only way we get that grand jury information is if we impeach, and time is ticking, if we get close to the election Barr will have another excuse to hide the grand jury info.

9. Please, correct me if I am wrong, but can we stop saying that a sitting president cannot be indicted

 

It is an opinion, it is not a rule, a law, just an opinion.

Many lawyers have said that a sitting president CAN BE indicted, the meme that the buffoon, or any criminal president, cannot be indicted has to stop now.

The president CAN BE INDICTED, there is not rule or law that can prevent it.

That "no sitting president can be indicted" was just an opinion by some fool who cannot make up his mind about doing the right thing, or maybe was afraid of going against the status quo, or against his pals from the republican party, but IT IS JUST AN OPINION.

Democrats have to be the first to convince the nation, and the World, that an opinion cannot prevail, that an opinion is just that, that an opinion can be wrong and has no weight on the realities of the rule of law.

THE BUFFOON CAN BE INDICTED, please repeat after me, THE BUFFOON CAN BE INDICTED, or change the word "buffoon" if you feel inclined to do do.

10. It's not a meme, but it is a significant opinion.

Last edited Mon Apr 22, 2019, 05:57 PM - Edit history (1)

Technically, it’s Justice Department policy based upon Justice Department guidance (official opinions of the Justice Department that have precedential value).

The Justice Department has decided to limit itself and refuses to indict a sitting President. Indeed, they could do so, but they would be violating their own policy if they did, and it is clear that they are not going to do so in this case. It is also clear from his report that Meuller felt constrained by Justice Department policy.

It is absolutely true that the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, for example, could indict the President. My point is that the Justice Department will not do so, despite the fact that Meuller concluded that President Trump had committed the crime known as “obstruction of justice.” Thus, Meuller calls upon the House of Representatives to do its duty and impeach the President, instead.

Thank you for your reply.

I want to paste your post to my Facebook Page and the Facebook Page of Need to Impeach.

The more the public know about the sources to contact Nancy Pelosi the more chances people will be proactive in their approach of addressing the Speaker on what they feel about the Impeachment Process.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. You did the right thing by calling the Speaker's Office and sending her a postcard.

It is now entirely up to us to voice our opinion. And tell our Representatives what we believe needs to be accomplished after reading Mueller Report.

The voice of the "Many" creates a whole lot of difference in the world we live!!

Personally, I didn’t support impeachment, either, until the report’s release. At this point, impeachment seems like the right thing to do.

Your point is well-taken, but I doubt that Speaker Pelosi will bring Articles of Impeachment until she is nearly certain that they will pass. Time will tell.

Of course we might put trump back in and solidify the republican senate. And not to mention that there is no way we get a conviction in the Senate.

But won't we feel righteous and good about ourselves. We can stamp our little feet and not sacrifice our sense of how really good we are. Fuck the country. We can feel good about ourselves.

54. I'm all for impeachment..

if Congress is given the time to investigate all of Trump's dealings. This rush to impeach, just to impeach, and have things go no further ...I don't understand.

61. It's all about headlines

and feeling superior. It is not about doing the best thing to get rid of republicans.

50. I was originally against it.

Charles Blow, Elizabeth Warren, Dan Rather and others have convinced me that this needs to happen.

56. Same here.

We will be condoning Trump’s behavior if we do not stand up for the rule of law.

59. Yes. Impeachment opens up powers of investigation, and that's where it starts, not where

it ends.
