Ok another question on impeachment.

If tRUMP is impeached and the senate DOES NOT remove him, and we win the house and senate in 2020, can the house re-introduce the same charges to the new senate? Maybe add a few more.

1. We would need a two-thirds majority in the Senate,

which is never going to happen.

But I think the House is holding back some charges so when the Senate acquits him, we can just impeach him all over again. Make him the first President to be mpeached twice!

2. I don't think so.

They'd have to go through something similar to the same process (the intel committee hearings were an addition to the normal procedure this time) and could file the same charges but they can't just revote.

9. Nope

An impeachment trial is not a criminal procedure.

3. If we take the Senate and keep the House,

win or lose, trump is toast.

8. Sure.

We can use Jackson's impeachment process as a field guide.

12. Democrats winning the Senate in 2020 presumes that Trump has already lost.

What purpose would further impeachment action serve at that point?

15. It is highly unlikely that Trump could win reelection while Democrats retake the Senate.

Elections donít happen in a vacuum, if the map allows Democrats to win the Senate, Trump has likely lost in a landslide.

16. If trump loses in a landslide

IMHO, We will probably face many weeks of trump's "I wuz robbed" whinery along with his brilliant projections of "the Dems cheated and lied to win" - Barr will hasten to put a phony investigation of millions who voted to create the blue tsunami wherever it comes from and on and on ad nauseum. I fear that trump/barr/pompeo/pence will not go down without a huge, fascistic fight
