"Welcome to the impeachment show"
I think this is a good summary of where we are and where we are going with respect to Trump impeachment.
This should be an interesting day!
Donald Trumps illegal demand that Don McGahn not show up for todays House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Mueller report, followed by McGahns announcement that he would indeed fail to show up, set off a chain of events that resulted in multiple members of the committee publicly calling for an impeachment inquiry against Trump to begin, and multiple more members including Chairman Jerry Nadler to privately make the impeachment case to Nancy Pelosi. Shes not quite ready to go there, but the events of today could change things fast.
Well see what legal consequences the House Judiciary Committee will fire off at Don McGahn once todays hearing begins at 10am and hes not there. Will they fine him? Arrest him? The committee clearly wants to take a big swing, so well see one. The question is what Donald Trump will do once the committee begins ripping apart McGahns life for siding with Trump instead of siding with the law. Trump hates McGahn, but he really hates the idea of anyone interfering with his illegal orders, so his response later today could be outsized.
In any case, welcome to the impeachment show. Unless Donald Trump changes course and begins trying to deescalate things (which he wont), were now all but locked into a path to impeachment. Trump forced the House Democrats hand, and now hes going to get to find out what its like to be on the wrong side of a legally sound, highly popular, and investigating devastating impeachment process. It wont be long now.
or arrest McGahn?
Democrats should have begun impeachment hearings before the Mueller report was released.
If being named a co-conspirator in a felony, and if 1,000 prosecutors believe that Trump obstructed justice, WTF are we waiting for?
If we are waiting for 20 Republican Senators to vote to convict Trump then let's admit that impeachment is off the table.
I'm assuming the DC bar can disbar him for willfully ignoring a congressional subpoena. This guy should not be allowed to practice law in DC or anywhere else for that matter.
