"Saw this comment on a WSJ article
1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial.
2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number of Democrats, to not convict the President. Legally, it will all be over at that point.
3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President's attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THAT THEY WANT.. That is different from the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazille, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing coverup activities.
A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of Democrats will start being charged and going to prison. All this, because, remember, the President's team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath - and they will turn on each other. That’s already starting.
4. Lastly, one more thing will happen – the Senate will not convict the President. Nothing will happen to Trump. Most Americans are clueless about political processes, the law, and the Constitution. Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office. They don't understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed -- and *everything* will be allowed, including: DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover up and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information. They’ll incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros.
After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy and dishonesty. Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other important issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged somehow."
^^^ I think all the states that voted to apply their electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote are going to implode because Trump will win the popular vote. And the democraps will be exposed for all to see. Those that want to see that is.
Nice fairy tale. Sound like Dam Bonggong crap.
He was so right about the engineered shutdown that was going to reduce the size of government by permanently laying off the government employees after 60 days. The dittoes were going nuts over that one. Even Q Anon cult members were on board. How did that work out?
There's not going to be an impeachment. And Trump may win re-election. He won't win the popular vote this time either if he is.
I used to believe that Trump would win again. I no longer believe he will. He will probably have to be forcibly removed from the White House if he does lose.
I can't hear you. You're on ignore. LOL

We are heading for a revolution in this country. And the Libs and Democrates are not going to like the out come. They know this and that is why they are hell bent on getting guns taken away from the people.
I’m a brown skinned immigrant from a formerly socialist country. I came here as a grad student in 1971, and was shocked to learn that so many Americans had no idea why we had to confront the communists in Vietnam. It became one reason I decided to stay after my studies. This country needed help - against many of its own citizens.
Most Americans have no idea that the Democrats forced us to withdraw from Vietnam just after the Vietcong were on their knees after their failed Tet offensive, ready to surrender. Their Gen. Giap wrote in his memoires that he was shocked to hear the Americans were pulling out.
Millions of Vietnamese and Cambodians were massacred after we withdrew, which proved the Democrats were lying when they said we were fighting freedom fighters. Freedom fighters don’t massacre their own people after winning a war.
I have visited both Vietnam and Cambodia recently and met local people whose educated parents and relatives were taken away, never to return. They said we should never have left. We could have turned Vietnam and Cambodia into allies like Japan. Now they remain communist dictatorships.
I had to study American history to become a citizen. What I learned about the cold, cruel and merciless history of the Democrats made my skin crawl.
Who fights s bloody war to secede so slavery can continue? The Democrat Confederates did.
Who creates an organization like the KKK to terrorize freed slaves? The Democrat Confederates did.
Who writes what are known as Jim Crow laws? The Democrats did.
Who filibusters Civil Rights for all? The Democrats did.
After they failed to stop the Civil Rights Act the Democrats simply put on sheep’s clothing.
They switched from their previous hard bigotry to the soft bigotry of low expectations and kept going. Their diabolical Great Society programs started the breakup of American families, especially black families.
Births to single white women grew from 4% in 1965 to 29% now. Births to single black women grew from 24% to an astounding 73% now. For Hispanics it’s 53% now and for Asians it’s negligible.
Then we had Obama. No one who knew about his anti-American, anti-Semitic mentors would have voted for him but he, the Democrats and the left wing media deflected everyone’s attention and so we got 8 years of stifling the economy, colluding with Russia, ignoring NOKO’s nuclear developments, creating chaos in Syria and Libya, and appeasing Iran with billions to use against us and Israel.
Poverty increased by 18% under Obama, millions dropped out of the labor force and the black community ended up worse off in every major category - after supporting Obama by 95%
So, that’s my story of why I could never be a Democrat, and I’m sticking to it.
If you are on the fence, just THINK of where we would be today had President Trump lost to the most incompetent, dishonest, greedy and corrupt scofflaw to ever run for President.
Think of how the economy would continue to be stifled, we would still be colluding with Russia, still be in the devastating Paris Accords, still ignoring NOKO, still be appeasing Iran while they chant “Death to America”
Thank God a billionaire like Trump, a problem solver by profession, gave up his cushy lifestyle and took on the crushing task of saving America and MAGA, under a ferocious barrage of personal assaults and abuse.
He cannot do it alone in 2020 without the help of #WalkAway, #BLEXIT and #LEXIT.
With their help the Democrats, God willing, will be relegated to the back benches for a very long time, and that’s a good thing.
