Grassroots pressure plus the media plus Senate Republicans equals impeachment [View all]

All the arguing over whether we should or shouldn’t impeach Trump seems to me to be a bit beside the point right now. If Trump has committed crimes (which he obviously has) and if the Special Counsel can’t indict a sitting president (still up for debate) then the only remedy is impeachment. As we’ve all heard a million times, impeachment begins in the House (which we control) and ends in the Senate (which they control).

What we saw yesterday is clearly just the beginning of a long, steady drip of evidence demonstrating increasingly heinous crimes by the president. There’s still a long way to go before it all comes out, and it’s only going to get worse for Trump.

So far, McConnell and friends have remained incredibly quiet about all of this. But sooner or later, that wall needs to crack. If a few Senate Republicans blink, it will only put additional pressure on others to do the same.

So it seems to me that while the evidence of worse and worse crimes continues to pile up, pressure needs to be simultaneously placed on Senate Republicans.

Are you okay with this crime that the president has committed?

What about this one?

What about this one?

In your opinion, how many felonies should the president be allowed to commit, Senator?


It’s obviously the media’s job to ask these questions, so maybe at the grassroots level, that’s where pressure needs to be applied first. Ask the media:

Where are the Republicans?

Why won’t they speak up about their president’s crimes?

Will they go on the record and say they’re okay with all of this?


It doesn’t matter if they deny all of this at first (as they have been up to this point). This is still a long game. Keep the heat on them every day to tell the world why they’re still okay with propping up an obviously criminal president. Don’t let them run and hide from the biggest political scandal of our time.
