BTRTN: Do Dems Dare to Impeach? Nancy, Here's a Plan the Party Can Unite Behind

Born To Run The Numbers offers a plan that navigates the internecine battle between Democrats who want to impeach now, and Nancy Pelosi, who resist impeachment but is unclear about if, when, and why she might change her mind:

Excerpts:
"What is perhaps most unsettling to Democrats who favor impeachment is that Pelosiís specific game plan is unclear, other than for vague references to allowing the legal processes to play out. Impatient Democrats think that Pelosi is playing into Trumpís hand in a different way. By failing to impeach, she is allowing him to 'play out the clock,' allowing Dem subpoenas to be gummed up in the court system until election day...
"Instead of trying to wound Trump with a thousand needle pricks as dozens of cases work through lower courts, Pelosi should pick a small number of cases that most clearly illustrate 'obstruction of oversight,' and demand an immediate, expedited review by the Supreme Court...
"Weíd submit that there are the two cases that are most threatening to Donald Trump: the Congressional demand that the IRS release his taxes to a House committee and the subpoena requiring former White House Counsel Don McGahn to testify in public...
"If Roberts were to tip the courtís rulings in favor of the Congress, Trump would be faced with a momentous choice: does he release his taxes and allow McGahn to testify, or does he raise the stakes even further and openly defy the Supreme Court?"
