I know this is fantasy but what if they convict on Wednesday

The vote for no witnesses is an attempt to control the scandal. If they remove Trump it will change the narrative. The Trump people will throw a fit. But the GOP will claim that they did the honorable thing and the party needs to move forward to nominate a strong candidate for president.

In some ways Trump will get what he wants. He'll be able to leverage the outrage of his base to make a lot of money. And he is off the hook with Putin. Pence will surely pardon them all.

1. In that hypothetical case...

I'm not sure he would be off the hook with Putin. He might be more firmly on the hook, since he'd no longer be in a position to pay off by betraying his country.

2. We think alike! That is my one in a gazillion chances hope for the outcome on Wednesday.

3. true. But I doubt that Pence is packing his bags

and calling the movers.

4. I hope the results of the Iowa caucuses

will figure into their decisions on the vote. Sen. Ernst seemed to be hinting at that earlier in the week. Perhaps they are looking for the number of caucus goers and their level of engagement rather than which candidate comes out on top. If they can imagine being overwhelmed on election day, they could decide to jettison dear leader.

5. Interesting.

But if that is the plan, it would have leaked by now, I think.

7. If it leaked they couldn't do it.

Which is why it would never work. That many people couldn't keep their mouths shut.

8. It would be funny though!

But sadly if they did that, they would all be re-elected.

9. It Might Depend On What Happens Between Now & Wednesday.....

Any new bombshells. What Trump says or does Sunday in his Hannity interview. What Trump says or does at the SOTU on Tuesday.

Remember Pelosi says Trump is self-impeachable.

He can screw himself over the next few days with his words and actions.

That's why we need to keep the pressure on both him and the Repug Senators now.

10. If they convict, Schiff & Schumer both say it wasn't a fair trial cause there were no witnesses and

documents.
