Response to Cuthbert Allgood (Reply #35)

37. Which will simply allow the repubs to change the subject from the findings to the failure to follow

the Constitutional process. And its almost a given that the media will focus more on that than on the findings adopted by a straight party vote in the House after a proceeding in which the President and others will refuse to participate.

I understand why Tribe is pushing this idea, but I really don't see it as a particularly good approach. The House could conduct an impeachment inquiry and adopt articles of impeachment and time the whole thing so that it doesn't get to the Senate before the election.

Indeed, even if the House adopts impeachment, it would still take a further action by the House to adopt a resolution naming managers and directing them to present the articles to the Senate before the Senate could say or do anything.
