54. He's operating under the False Assumption that an Acquittal in the Senate
is a bad thing.

How the Senate votes is moot.

It is the public airing of the charges against this regime that is important. How many times have we said here on DU "If everyone knew what we know about these crooks, there would be a massive uprising against them". Well, guess what: impeachment hearings are the way to accomplish this. The media would be forced to cover it, and discourse on it would not be limited to left-wing blogs and DU.

If they do hold impeachment hearings, with testimony, and subpoenas, and evidence, then the public will be so FUCKING outraged that (a) repuke senators will *have* to switch their vote to "Convict" to avoid even get re-elected, or (b) they won't get re-elected.

Just hold the hearings, John.
