John Dean: Pelosi Still Holds All the Cards

John Dean was interviewed by Don Lemon on Wednesday's (1/8) show and he said that there has been an examination of case law that will give Pelosi some options with the court if the Senate conducts a sham trial.

The article will appear in tomorrow's Washington Post. The author's name, and I don't know the spelling, is Robinall.

Dean says she can hold on to the articles through the election if she wants to. This will allow the Democrats to make the impeachment a campaign issue.

9. You have to be kidding. They don't trust him for 1000%

more than you can imagine. You don't even know what hand he prefers to screw the nation with.

But they know him and they know the incredibly complex system they all work within, and they know things like procedural corners they can back him into and legal constraints he must abide by, and they trust what they can do with those.

7. That's what the case law is about

Dean is saying the case law gives her something to go on should he try doing a sham trial.

11. And it seems that if the DOJ declines to

enforce the law Moscow Mitch is untouchable.

Before him I never realized that the Majority Leader of the senate has veto power over virtually everything.

13. Yeah, I always wondered

why when they are in the minority, Republicans can stop pretty much anything dead and when they are in the majority they have veto power over everything.

I guess it is that our side has ethics.

6. Would be great to have trial fall during repug nat'l convention....!

Tie up their Senators et al. from attending, AND have a spectacle to counter theirs. It could be a beautiful thing!

10. Impeachment as THE 2020 issue would be a good thing.

And so would a Democratic majority in the Senate.
