    True, but my consciousness experienced this oozing as free will.

    It's really impossible to relay to laymen, let alone Republican voters who are predisposed against heeding criticisms of Republicans, the true scope of this administration's corruption.

    If they tried to impeach now, it wouldn't really do anything besides shakeup the news cycle for a bit before going away, just like every other Trump Scandal.
    However, if they tried to impeach at a later time, say after the democrat nominee has been decided and right as campaigning starts to go into overdrive, then even if Trump isn't impeached, it will still dominate the news cycle with bad press at the worse possible time and give the dem nominee ammo before a debate.
    At least, that's what I hope Pelosi is planning.

    I really don't think she's planning that, but it would certainly be bad for Trump if he's impeached in the closing months of the campaign. People who are blinded by their Trumpism have this crazy idea that impeachment would somehow multiply the support for Trump, but it wouldn't. Impeachment hurts.

    While I don't think impeachment would multiply his support, I don't think it would have a permanent diminishing effect on him. Anyone that is still on the Trump train isn't getting off now.
    At the very least, it wouldn't make sense to impeach at least until the DNC candidate is decided. Impeaching now would just take press attention away from the primaries.

    So earth science people, what's with all these constant aftershocks in Cali? I thought those are just a day or two after?

    Is this a good thing that it's like, releasing pressure and not gonna have a major quake? Or is this a sign of something bad incoming? Or do this amount of aftershocks happen more often than I think?

    I'm just used to blizzards and the occasional tornado for my natural disasters.

    It's true that Trump is far more resistant to scandal than a typical politician (but also far less capable of expanding his support). I think we're only talking a few percentage points of job approval, like he'd probably hit his floor and maybe a little lower. Like others (esp. JVS) have pointed out, "It's the economy, Stupid." That's what can make the biggest difference.

    I think she's waiting to see how Mueller's testimony impacts public perception. If it hits Trump hard I think she'll back it. If it has little to no impact she's going to concentrate on 2020

    Maybe it goes without saying but the impeachment proceedings are more important than the vote itself and should be slow rolled.

    Trump is stone walling all of the witnesses. They have issued subpoenas and we know Mueller will testify.

    That would actually be the worst scenario, and make it look like they're trying to steal the election.

    They aren't going to impeach him, guys. Give up the dream. At least for this term, anyways. If he gets a second term and with the Dems having nothing to lose, they might go for it just out of spite. This term though? Not happening. Russia, and some maybe/maybe not obstruction charge, is not a blip on the public's radar. It doesn't even register as a matter of importance to them. Now, you may argue that public perception doesn't matter, but in reality, it's all that matters. Well, that and a Republican lead Senate that would laugh that shit off the floor.

    She's given a lot of reasons not to impeach, here's an edit of a post where I source them:

    I think only a couple of those reasons can change (lack of support, other open investigations), so her position is likely to hold through the election. Also public support is down again, but will probably jump back up after Mueller.

    I think he still drops the occasional "both sides are the same so vote Republican" though. He's the OG whatabout'er of the War Room and that's difficult to leave behind entirely.

    On a greyhound bus just outside of Portage la Prairie in Manitoba Vincent Li stabbed a 19 year old named Tim McLean to death, before decapitating him and eating parts of him.
