There is an issue that is currently being overlooked in this current impeachment frenzy. Anyone notice the date? It's October 20. The federal fiscal year ended in 20 days ago. Congress is already behind schedule for the 2020 budget/appropriations process.
Quote:
Congress did not complete action on appropriations before the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30. The House passed a continuing resolution (CR) on Sept. 19 that funds the government through Nov. 21, which the Senate passed on Sept. 26 and President Trump signed on Sept. 27. The House and Senate, meanwhile, are expected to use the next few weeks to continue negotiations on full appropriations for the rest of FY 2020. A package of four appropriations bills stalled in the Senate in September, but nine appropriations bills may advance the week of Oct. 21 through procedural votes on two "minibus" packages.
Appropriations Watch: FY 2020 (CFRB)

Remember what happened last year? Trump created a partial shutdown for 35 days to try to force Congress to pay for his wall (it didn't work). That was just a campaign issue. Think what he's likely to do to protect himself now. I expect him to engage in hostage-taking to try to derail his impeachment. He's already created a war in Syria and a controversy about the G-7 summit to distract the public. He has more hostages available than the Sinaloa cartel at his disposal. Don't expect him not to use them.

I'm beginning to suspect that the Senate may convict him. Elections are coming up and he's an albatross around their necks. I'm pretty sure he's dug up dirt on most of them and held them hostage with it. As president he's a threat to them. Convict him and they can take control of Mike Pence and the narrative leading up to the elections.

It's a long shot but it could happen. I imagine the G7 shocked them to the core. Abandoning our allies didn't sit well either. His border emergency stole funds from their states. They can make it all go away...

Chris Wallace says a well connected Republican says Republicans who would vote for impeachment is about 20%. I believe my thought a week ago or so was 10-20%.

There is some movement for sanity in the GOP.

I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say that, but the stink of the albatross takes all the pleasure out of life...

Word is leaking out that some are willing to break ranks. It might be political suicide and it might make you a hero. There will be death threats and more, there will be shots fired into your office...

There are a lot of extremely dangerous Republicans out there with a lot of extremely dangerous weapons. It may be best just to hang on until the elections...

But what if he wins...

The pressure is building. Sucks to be a Republican right now.

How many Conservatives got goosebumps when they saw the word "lynching?" Hmm

OK I don't know. I don't see a current propaganda campaign. I see a lot of facts being bandied about, all being about Mr Trump.

My guess is the Conservative movement against Pres Obama led by Hannity, Limbaugh, Gingrich, tea people.

So who said it???

No, rporter314 isn't partisan at all. He just automatically jumps to the conclusion that this comment was made by conservatives about Pres. Obama. He is wrong.
