3. I wish America was intelligent enough to elect a man like Rep. Green as President

 

Instead we have a traitor and the most corrupt and evil man to ever soil the White House who makes war on poor children and sick old folks.

They won't have any more status or impact than the ones Congressman Green is preparing.

5. yes, but that doesn't really matter

Any articles of impeachment he introduces at this point will be referred to the Judiciary Committee where they will sit without any action. It doesn't matter whether he's a member of that committee or not.

A more likely scenario for action, but also one that won't go anywhere at this point, would be for someone to introduce a resolution either directing the Judiciary Committee to conduct an investigation in to whether articles of impeachment should be drawn up or a resolution creating a select committee to do the same.

10. You have reason to believe it would be equally impacting as would Rep. Green's?

"They won't have any more ... impact than the ones Congressman Green is preparing..."



You have reason to believe that if you wrote your draft and sent it to congress, it would be equally impacting as would Rep. Green's? That it would be a catalyst for conversations across the country?

What specifically (other than vanity) leads you to that allegation?

6. This is meaningless coming only from Democrats.

They can concoct anything they like, but as long as the Republicans control the House these fantasy announcements aren't going anywhere but the recycling bin, so this is nothing more than a waste of time. We should know better, but clearly these are Democratic voters who can be relied on to fall for these wishful press releases and glom onto some politician's thinly veiled appeal for donations as if it was the last life preserver on the Titanic?

9. Publishing them wouldn't be a waste of time. The more attention paid

to DT's crimes -- and the cover-up -- and GOP complicity, the better.

11. I think he is doing a dis-service to the overall opportunity if he only includes

obstruction of justice. Maybe that's clear and easy right now, but we shouldn't use up all our juice on this one narrow misdeed if there are more out there that should be added to make an overall case of abuse and incompetence. There's emoluments (easy, I would think), corruption by foreign adversary (still to come, but very very serious), corruption of election process (certainly happened...not sure yet how much Trump involved), conspiracy wrt Logan Act maybe, money laundering, not meeting standards and expectations of the job...a ton!

Not a lawyer, but I'd like an overall strong case to be built that doesn't rely on just a few points, a few witnesses (strong as they are), and a few instances of obstruction. The misbehavior is much broader than that.
