    The case for impeachment

    Some people are making the same mistake Pelosi has been making (I have hope she'll change). That is, assuming the impeachment and conviction have to both occur. They don't.

    We should not be intimidated by the GOP that keeps fear-mongering at every turn: it will cause a backlash by the voters. Voters in the case of Clinton thought the impeachment was petty. There was voter backlash. There wasn't a voter backlash when Nixon was forced to resign.

    Expose Trump via impeachment, and trigger him to become absurdly preoccupied with it (because he will be) all during the campaign.

    Impeaching Trump is far from petty, especially if it exposes he's so dangerously close to being a dictator that his staff had to disobey his orders to keep him from shutting Mueller down.

    And while the House is at it, they can expose the Russian attack on our election that Trump and sadly much of the press are ignoring.

    There will be an additional bonus, the press will be just as preoccupied with the impeachment and Trump's replies that there will be much less time for Trump TV showing 100% of his rallies live.

    Right now, in addition to ongoing Russian interference, Trump TV is still garnering all the press attention. One thing needed in 2020 is getting press attention. And there's nothing that indicates the press is tired of Trump TV yet.

    The House Impeachment Soap would be important competition. And the Democrats should not play nice by avoiding any of this in October. In fact, October is a good month for impeachment drama.

    It is the right thing to do; it's Congress' job.Trump has committed crimes that call for impeachment. If we don't, then we risk POTUS overreach becoming the norm. I do not believe party retaliation will become the norm but you can expect that will be one of the GOP's talking points.

    If these talking points make sense to you like they do to me, include them when you post elsewhere. Include them in letters to your legislators. If they don't make sense to you, let's talk about it.

    A people that no longer can believe anything cannot make up its mind. It is deprived not only of its capacity to act but also of its capacity to think and to judge. And with such a people you can then do what you please.[2] Hannah Arendt, 1978 [Brookings Institute]
