Pushing Impeachment as we go along this year

I know; you've all told me the Democrats don't control anything and of course that's true.

However, we need to concentrate on the 40 least looney Republicans in the House from Blue states and keep reminding them we are watching and will not forget that they put party over America and the Constitution.

the more mainstream Republicans are not making a lot of noise about Trump is that the GOP wants the Dems to be the ones to pull the impeachment trigger. They know that Trump's base will go ballistic, and they're too cowardly to risk losing the votes. I of course want Trump (and Pence) out of there, but I wonder if it wouldn't be more fun for us to sit on our hands? I think for sure we ought to keep up pressure via calls and emails on our Sens and Reps, and keep showing up at protests, so the cowards can see that *we* are a significant voting bloc, too. And donate as much as we can to the ACLU--the courts will keep him entangled enough so that maybe he won't be able to do as much damage as he would otherwise.

And just wait until 2018.
