2. Maybe in 2025 with the house and 66 seats in the senate

That’s not far fetched that we may end up with close to 70 seats in the senate with how things are going. Abortion on many states amendments. Republicans acting strange. And trump convicted. All could result in a Biden blowout.

7. It's not far fetched, it's mathmatically impossible to get to 67 seats in the Senate this election cycle

Sorry to be a downer, but the math is thus:

Republicans only have 10 senators up for reelection this cycle, if we hold every D and I seat AND take every R seat, we can't get to 67.

Here is wiki's break down. Senate class 1 is on the ballot this fall. Note, not just the number of Senators, but look at the break down of how secure a given seat is. Rick Scott at R+3 and Ted Cruz at R+5. Everyone else is R+ double digits. Look at how many seats we have to defend and how close the margins are. Sherrod Brown, here in OH, is running in an R+6 state. We are vulnerable in the Senate this year. IF we hold it, it will be because of Roe.

11. It's still worth submitting an impeachment resolution to publicize the issue further.

Would also serve as a warning.

With the political climate we have right now with people wanting abortion legal again and not wanting a
political party that will storm the Capitol again, red States are prime to turn purple or blue if only we spent
some time, money and effort in them. Believe the results would shock people how voters are just flat
tired of how repugs go about non-governing.

4. That's one of Senator Whitehouse's signature issues, Supreme Court corruption and fighting climate change

He sure has his hands full. It's totally unacceptable that the Supreme Court can no longer be trusted to follow the rule of law.

3. Why did it take years for this to be reported?

Empty the SC Building and detonate it. We can’t allow a secret society to destroy our democracy. If it is to be destroyed, it must be done in the sunshine.

5. Despicable Sam

He is a liar. He is a racist. He is a small-minded, arrogant and bigoted fascist. He snubs his nose at the American Constitution. He humiliates his colleagues and smirks when he does so. Lowlife Sam is, in fact, the very model of a modern Republican Supreme Court Justice.

10. An impeachment resolution should be submitted even if it won't pass to get this issue out for those who aren't
