A 2nd Article of Impeachment?

Bring on more!




Sources tell me at this hour House Dems now considering two articles of impeachment against Trump including the article of Incitement of Insurrection by Reps. Raskin, Lieu and Cicilline with 180 cosponsors.

1. Is the other Article going to be the phone call to Georgia. I think Katyl posted the other day

that this impeachment Article would only take an hour -- the length of the phone call.

3. There were two calls to GA that are impeachable but I want GA to charge him too

He can dodge lots at the Fed level either through politics (Senate not supporting impeachment) or a pardon but he can't get same consideration in GA. The more state charges and lawsuits like Dominion and such the better.

7. Doesn't GA's Attorney general chair a group

That urged people to attend the rally?
Would he be the one to bring charges?

9. Hadn't read that but wouldn't be surprised

Given state level offices in GA are all held by Repubs, likelihood is admittedly slim. But one can hope!

Ilhan split them up. So not sure what they have.

5. Reps. Raskin, Lieu and Cicilline & 180 cosponsors

Thank you to our Democratic Reps

.. The articles, which are formal charges of misconduct, were crafted by Democratic Representatives David Cicilline, Ted Lieu and Jamie Raskin

These 3 legal scholars will include every fine & undebatable detail, leaving nothing out.

I am so glad these articles of impeachment are being written by these most capable leaders.

6. I was under the impression that a single charge

would streamline the process, something about avoiding a committee process.

8. No. There is nothing larger than the one they already have. Save the Georgia phone call until

after he is out of office and our new AG can charge him with it, along with the state of GA. It isn't going to help the impeachment by adding LESSER charges to it.

Just keep it simple and quick.
