"Senate Republicans Won't Convict" is a very lame excuse.

Of course, the GOP won't convict. That's not as important as one may think.

Impeachment inquiry and proceedings will bring a lot of information to light.
The public will learn more and more about the criminality of Trump as the proceedings go on.
There will be damning evidence for all to see. The GOP will have to face the public.
At the same time, Trump, GOP Sens, and GOP Reps will have to try and run a campaign for re-election.
The press will hound the WH, and the Republicans. Major chaos, any way you look at it.
Once all the evidence is in the public's ears and eyes, the GOP will have this choice ---
Convict Trump, or attempt to convince an angry nation why they shouldn't.

Barr isn't defending Trump. He's defending a right wing coup.

Why would anyone risk their career over Trump? Trump is temporary, and only one person.
Right wingers wouldn't think twice about hanging one person out to dry.
Trump is a puppet. We need to cut off the hands of the puppeteers.
There is much more at stake here than the WH. The Mueller Report is being suppressed
to prevent further investigation which would expose a lot of nasty shit, and a lot of people.

Those involved in this coup need to be exposed and dealt with very, very harshly.

I'm wondering if the foot dragging on impeaching Trump

is caused by fear of the "civil war" we've been promised by some trumpists
if he's impeached?
I hope the House isn't intimidated by the right wing militia monkeys.
I know I'm not.

Now that Mueller won't be working for Barr anymore,

can the House subpoena him to get him to testify?

Asking for a friend...

Until Trump literally threatens Putin's well being if he doesn't stay out

of our elections, I will never believe that Trump cares about it, as he claims.

How long will the members of the RW propaganda apparatus be allowed to hide behind

the "freedom of the press"?
They are not the press. They are a PR agency, at best, and filthy traitors, at worst.
I think they're dangerous enemies of the United States, and believe they should be treated as such.

Serious question? Is there a mechanism/procedure in the US Constitution for

"nullifying" a Presidency that was obtained illegally?

An observation about the Trump/GOP panic.

The GOP seems to be going to great lengths to protect Trump. This would actually seem normal on the surface. A party is going to stand up for it's own guy if he's in the WH. But, there is nothing "normal" going on...

Except for signing laws the GOP wants passed, the GOP has no use for Trump. He's obviously a problem, but he can be shoved out of the way whenever that becomes necessary.

I would say that many, many GOP members in the Senate, House, and even statehouses, could be implicated in the various investigations into the Trump crime spree. I suspect that an elected GOP member or members could have become a Russian asset. There is already info out there that the NRA was turned into a Russian asset. Clearly, right wingers other than Trump were/are involved. Michael Flynn was but one. This could blow a huge hole in the GOP, leaving a void for Progressives to fill. Even if a particular Senator is eventually found to have committed no crimes, their name will have already been dragged through the mud of the Trump sty enough to cause voters to turn away.

Just my $.02
