To impeach or not to impeach is the question?

Speaker Pelosi is meeting with her entire caucus today to get a read on that very subject.

She has been preaching patience to the Democrats but most of the Democrats are tired of Trump's bullshit and total disregard for our laws. They are ready to make their case.

But, I think they are a couple of weeks away from making a decision. When they return from Memorial Day recess, they will be better prepared to choose a direction.

By then, they should be able to get a commitment from Robert Mueller to testify. That is almost a necessity before any talk of impeachment can continue. Also, there may be other Court decisions by that time? They may have the testimony of Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson, although that is not a guarantee.

In my opinion, Speaker Pelosi will be able to persuade her caucus to wait a couple of more weeks to proceed with any talk about impeachment. They have waited for over two years - they can wait for two more weeks.

There is a lot of unrest in the ranks and Donald Trump has done nothing to quell it. He thinks it will be a political win for him. He should be very careful what he wishes for.

2. the white house has already said they will not allow Hicks to speak....

I'm sure they will do the same with Donaldson and Mueller.

This is across the board stonewalling.

He has a lot to fear.

4. Donald Trump is the biggest liar

I have seen in my lifetime. Why should we believe him when he says he welcomes impeachment?

He is already playing the victim card in spades with the investigation into the FBI and Democrats.

5. what is staggering is the incalculable harm trump is and has been doing, so many people

being hurt in various ways, damage to the climate. We can't get some of this stuff back...and it seems now more than ever that politicians in general are playing a protected bubble, disconnected game about it all.

It makes me nauseous to think of how this has all been unfolding since the election theft.

6. To vote him out and pick up as many Seante seats as we can is the answer. Impeachment ...

10. Because the Republicans stole the election last fall and we Democrats don't control the House?

The vote IS the one thing we still have to any great degree. The GOP does want to control the vote, that's why they gerrymanded districts, now falling in Federal courts all over the US.

If you think voting is useless, why are you relying on an ELECTED GOP Senate to convict Trump in an Impeachment????

12. Well its not happening here. We've had some hack Presidents in the past and we'll get ...

them again. We are a nation of law and order, deep government is how we continue on in spite of disasters like WWll, the depression, Donald J, Trump. We are a nation of laws and order with a due process. We don't need to be any taking any short cuts to end his shit any more than we want the GOP to get away with using shit tactics because they feel the law moves too slowly.

Trump is going down. We'll vote him out. Districts will be fixed. Law and order will be restored and maintained. All of Trump's delay tactics will only delay a fair and final disposition.

The full Mueller report will come out.
Trump's tax filings will get to Congress.
Mueller will testify, as will everyone else subpoenaed.
Plenty of indictments.

And Trump will lose his election if he doesn't resign first. We just need to bury Trump and or Pence in a landslide and bring up a lot of Democrats in the down ticket elections. For Pete's sake, let's give our next President, a Democrat - whoever she or he is - the very best Congress we can.
