That’s the way to do it. First, release a succinct, crystal clear one-pager. Allow some time for the GOP to flail around and spend all possible excuses, then follow up with a 600+ page whammy to discredit said excuses. Repeat.


Well, there goes the Republicans’ “no crime was committed” talking point.


According to the Mueller report, Trump already obstructed justice 10 times. Trump was also labeld as “individual-1,” an unindicted co-consprirator of Cohen, when Cohen was indicted. Just add the latest extortion of Ukraine, to investigate a political opponent, with $391 million of tax payer money, to the list of crimes that Trump committed.


>The committee contends that Trump’s actions were part of a pattern than began with his “welcoming” of Russian interference in the 2016 election, and continues to this day. In fact, the panel’s Democrats cite his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s trip to Ukraine just last week as evidence that Trump intends to continue the alleged scheme. Trump’s lack of remorse over the Ukraine allegations, Democrats claim, is evidence that he poses a “continuing threat if left in office.”


And yet Judiciary Committee Republicans assail Democrats’ evidence as “paltry” and an “affront to the constitutional process of impeachment.” A critical analysis suggests that the evidence is substantial. The Republicans are not thinking critically. They are ignoring the evidence to further their power. That is frightening. What kind of country will we be if one party lawlessly takes control?
