Revealing the evidence against Trump NOW is a matter of keeping/losing our very existence.


It's that important, as Trump takes giant leaps toward full autocracy and consolidates power.

The center is not holding. We can't keep the Republic by waiting.

The evidence MUST be revealed, somehow.

An impeachment inquiry and hearings would allow evidence to be presented.

The end result of that effort must be less important to us than the releasing of the evidence to the public NOW.

Because the release of the evidence to the public will lay the groundwork, build the case, plant the seeds that WILL cripple Trump in the mind of even larger numbers of citizens.

And so even if Republicans in Congress choose to ride this traitor and go down, too....

The critical mass of public opinion will wash over the land.

We counted on having release of the evidence. Nancy apparently counted on having the evidence when she said she would wait for something overwhelming.

We don't have it.

The fastest way to get it now is to bring Articles of Impeachment and schedule hearings. Because the intention of Trump-Barr is to tie up the report in any possible way. They will hide it away from the American people through the 2020 election.

We can't wait. We just can't wait for that evidence.

1. It's fun to imagine TrumpCo would turn over the evidence if impeachment proceedings began ...

But you know what?

They still wouldn't.

They'd use the same excuses they're using now, and nobody could force Barr to do it.

It's nice to imagine that it's not already too late, and that there are still SOME vestiges of the 'rule of law' not-corrupted by the Orange Menace.

But it is, and there are not.

The GOP have sold their souls, and sold out this country and its democracy already.

It's that simple.

4. If what you say is true (and I'm not that far into ceding power to them)...

....then it will be time for the American people to take to the streets and the leaking to begin.
