I just read this blockbuster, which seems like an excellent companion 'article of impeachment' to the one of seditiously inciting overthrow of the government via insurrection.

Trump was seriously considering firing AG Rosen and putting in his place a crony with a plan to use the AG's office to invalidate the Georgia election results.

That seems to be all kinds of illegal to me, just as fraught with seditious conspiracy to overthrow the legitimate government as inciting insurrection is.

There were and are a thousand reasons to impeach Trump. Emolluments, nepotism, documented corruption, blatant lies, destruction of records, tax fraud, campaign violations, Hatch Act violations, the use of private email servers, the list is endless.

Yet he will not be convicted.

George Conway has provided a roadmap for the Senate to follow to prosecute Trump. smile

I say convict the fat slob Trump and take-away ALL of his post-POTUS benefits including Secret Service. Why protect an insurrectionist? Hmm

George Conway is a RINO and now that Trump is gone we will hear nothing more from him nor his wife, the lady with the tragic face.

The days of his relevancy are gone...gone with the wind.

Yet fascism is alive and well in the USA, the defeat of Trump is like beheading the Hydra, it's only the beginning of a task that will never be completed.

Hasn't George Conway suffered enough? He has made his bed and he will have to lie in it with Kellyanne!

The ironic thing, insanity really, is that even if the takeover of the Justice Dept and Georgia gambit was successful, it wouldn't have changed the outcome of the electoral college, unless of course, this kind of thing was also cooking in Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Michigan? Well, we already know about the attempted manipulation in Michigan. I suspect that much more will be found by the time impeachment rolls around.

Everyday a new atrocity. Some things never end. They’ll be uncovering the crimes and malfeasance of the Orange One for years after he is dead and spat upon.

The House could just keep on impeaching Trump on each individual charge, until the Senate finally convicts him out of frustration.

That could be turdle-boy's obstructionism 3.0! Won't get fooled again! All the gop senate has to do to win back majority in 2022 is to slow Biden's plans down and make him look ineffective! Democracy gone fur good. It's time to HAMMER A STAKE
through the filibuster's cold heart.

I think that Biden will take care of that problem one way or another. He knows, exactly, how Mitch works. Right now, however, he still has to get the covid money and his appointments so that he can function even a little bit. If he can't do it then .....

If Republicans demand too much, Schumer can always go nuclear and get rid of the filibuster. Then make every committee chair a Democrat and put a Democratic majority on every committee. He has the votes to do it. So what McTurdle is doing is a bluff, in light of Biden saying he wants to be bi-partisan.

What would be more politic would be to change the filibuster rules, so it takes 60 votes the first day, 55 votes the second day, and 50 votes the third day to stop it. So Republicans can filibuster if they want, but ultimately they lose. I think they wouldn't bother to filibuster.
