7. Biden campaign: Impeachment 'may be unavoidable' now:

 

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/446031-biden-campaign-impeachment-may-be-unavoidable-now


Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign took its strongest position yet on impeachment of President Trump on Wednesday, with the campaign saying it “may be unavoidable” in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller’s remarks earlier that day.

~~

In his remarks Wednesday, Mueller emphasized that while his investigation should not be interpreted as an exoneration of Trump, Justice Department policy prevented him from charging a sitting president with a crime.

“The Special Counsel made clear that it is incumbent that Congress pick up the pieces of his report on which he did not reach definitive conclusions or that he could not act upon due to Department of Justice guidance,” the statement reads. “Congress must do everything in its power to hold this Administration to account. That is what Congress is doing and should do: continue to investigate.”

The Biden campaign’s emphasis on allowing congressional investigations to play out echoes that of Democratic congressional leadership. Earlier this month, after reportedly initially pressing Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to be more open to impeachment, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) counseled patience on the various House investigations, citing court victories in House Democrats’ efforts to subpoena various records from the White House and Trump’s businesses.

Biden’s statement accuses the Trump administration of “throwing up roadblocks” against congressional investigations and calls Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe an “extraordinary internal vendetta against law enforcement and intelligence community investigators who were doing their job.”

13. In other words...no impeachment now or soon. Continue investigations of whatever.

 

Sidestepping a bit. Impeachment may be unavoidable. Maybe. At some point in the future. Maybe. Don't know when. If ever.

21. Not necessarily. Yours is only one of many possible inferences.

 

A long and winding inference, lacking any substance to support it as well.

But I get it... we often tell ourselves what best suits our narrative, and deny all other possibilities. Like really bad B-movies.

much in January 2021...if Trump gets another four years with unlimited power.

9. The fed doesn't control state teacher pay or school districts & school taxes.

 

Or does it? I didn't think so.

10. not directly

 

you are right, but there could conceivably be federal money authorized for this, through the Dept of Education.

Plus a president can influence what state governments do, and they can have an impact on state teacher salaries.

Plus, Biden is running for president and it makes a good sound bite.

12. Okay, that's what I thought. The fed doesn't have control over that.

 

Raising teachers' salaries continues on into the future. The fed could do something for now or for a short while, but doesn't have control over teachers' salaries. That's what I thought.

Sound bite.

16. Another candidate said he/she WILL raise teacher pay? Who?

 

I haven't seen that.

No matter who says that, my response would be the same. Candidates usually say teacher salaries SHOULD be raised, not that he will raise them. But I haven't seen the others say that. To be fair, I only pay attention to several of the candidates, since I'm not interested in the others.

bringing the influence of the federal government in general or their bully pulpit in particular to bear.

Otherwise, they're giving the impression that they can raise salaries.

30. In my state, teachers are state employees.

 

I don't know if the federal government has regulations on teacher pay, but it's always the legislature who handles pay raises in Mississippi. They've been fighting over it since I was in school. I graduated in 1987.
