2. It did get him some attention.

And it will make a great clip in his campaigns.

But this is not exactly a Federal trial because it is not being conducted by the Justice Department.

It is a legislative process.

7. Who will Sen. Hawley ask to dismiss the articles of impeachment?

The Senate doesn't have that power. The courts don't have the authority to rule on any motion. Sen. Hawley probably doesn't have standing to petition anyone for dismissal.

I eagerly await this legal eagle's ground-breaking motion or petition or whatever.

9. First, can't dismiss something that hasn't been presented.

Second, that would be a bad publicity stunt if they did it.

13. She ignored her base to chase republican crumbs

Source--http://www.stlamerican.com/news/local_news/why-claire-mccaskill-is-no-kamala-harris-or-dick-durbin/article_5baf5bc8-d03e-11e8-87bf-a7e3acbb4f9e.html

snip--"Missouri is a withering state shrinking in importance with each Census, whose urban areas are stagnant remnants with a strong white racist presence."

snip--" McCaskill’s strategy is based on several facts. Missouri is an overwhelmingly white state. Missouri is a racist state. The default position for most white Missouri voters is conservative. Most white Missouri voters like Trump, guns, and white nationalism. They dislike abortion, liberals, and blacks. They know Missouri is being left behind educationally, culturally, and economically by more vibrant states that attract a young, multi-cultural workforce, so they retreat behind coded racial rhetoric about Missouri being “the real America” with “heartland values,” rather than recognizing that the state’s decline is because of the very policies they support."


snip--" But while McCaskill vacuums the couch cushions for spare dimes in rural Missouri, the part of the state where she has her richest support is taken for granted. The last time she ran, in 2012, St. Louis city and county went for McCaskill by a breathtaking 69 percent to 27 percent over Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin. Yet McCaskill recently complained that her North St. Louis County office in Ferguson has hardly any volunteers showing up. Black voters are holding McCaskill at arm’s length, reasoning that the only time McCaskill pays much attention to African-American issues is every six years, when the Buffalo Soldier cavalry has to ride to the rescue."


snip--" Hawley’s strategy is to dog-whistle his way to Washington by fighting abortion and birth control, supporting voter suppression and discrimination in the name of religion, and giving his audience a double shot of white evangelical morality. “Government serves Christ’s kingdom rule, this is its purpose,” Hawley wrote in 2012. “Christ has become king and presently rules over the world and earthly government.”


Much more at article

We Dems better learn this lesson. Who is the base of the Democratic party?

12. How can the Senate dismiss what it doesn't have?

Like trying to catch a ball that hasn't been thrown yet.
