Democrats pivoting to new line of attack on Trump after GOP-controlled Senate blocked ouster: report

Accepting that the GOP-controlled Senate will never agree to oust Donald Trump from the Oval Office no matter what articles of impeachment are presented to the Republican members, Democrats are refocusing their efforts to go after the president in an election year by bringing Trump’s refusal to admit foreign interference in the election to the forefront.

According to Politico, Democratic leadership is frustrated by the fact that Republicans have embraced Trump despite obvious evidence of corruption, so they are pivoting to new lines of attack that don’t include impeachment.

“There is nothing that Donald Trump can do that would cause [Senate Republicans] to convict him of high crimes and misdemeanors,” said House Judiciary Committee lawmaker Jamie Raskin (D-MD), admitted. “So that has caused everybody in the House to take a deep breath and figure out what our next steps are. That leaves us legislative and political answers.”

According to the report, “In other words, the end of the impeachment process has become the advent of a new, narrower focus on what Democrats say is a crucial theme revealed by their efforts: Trump’s indifference to, or even encouragement of, foreign interference in the 2020 election. It’s a throughline, they say, of Trump’s behavior toward Russia, his treatment of Ukraine and his public comments on whether he would reject foreign help in future elections.”

go right at him and exploit his fragile Ego. Bloomberg and Styer more than taught us that lesson. Reports keep coming out of the Bunker as to how pissed off he gets when a truth bomb explodes in the Media about himself.

3. The definition of insanity

I am no Einstein, but to repeat the same thing over and over expecting different results is insanity.

We need to vote him and his support system out of office before it is too damn late.

Once out of office then we need to bring the bastards to justice when they are beyond the protection of the pardon. Wouldn't it be nice to see Mitch and Lindsey peeking out between the bars, or better yet, peeking out the little window.
