I wrote that this might be a good idea, having not a clue that it would be even considered by the Democrats.
“The notion of impeaching Trump but holding the articles in the House has gained traction among some on the political left as a way of potentially forcing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to conduct a trial on more favorable terms for Democrats. And if no agreement is reached, some have argued, the trial could be delayed indefinitely, denying Trump an expected acquittal.”
For those who cannot access WaPo, there seems to be a movement of about 3 dozen Democrats in the House who are open to the idea. The leadership is going to consider it.
What is ironic is that McConnell has complained that the process has been rushed and that his refusal to call crucial witnesses like Mulvaney and Pompeo is because of the “slapdash” nature of the impeachment inquiries.
Well, I say give him what he wants until he don’t want it no more. Kind of like waterboarding a man dying of thirst.
In the nicest way of course.
