A Viewer Writes......What every American should know

I received this from my neighbor.  It is very interesting.... explains why Nancy Pelosi is backing off from trying to impeach President Trump. I hope it is factual and that Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, James Comey, Loretta Lynch and other Democrat liars will go to jail
[EXTRAORDINARILY INFORMATIVE – What every American should know]

ONE MAN'S OPINION – The writer has a degree in Political Science, and is a card-carrying Libertarian.

I’ve been studying politics and political history for the past 30 years. My specialty is U.S. Presidents. That said, I hope that the House of Representatives impeaches Trump.

Let me tell you what will happen next.

1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial.

2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number of Democrats, to not convict the President. Legally, it will all be over at that point.

3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President's attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THAT THEY WANT.. That is different than the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazille, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing coverup activities.

A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of Democrats will start being charged and going to prison. All this, because, remember, the President's team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath - and they will turn on each other. That’s already starting.

4. Lastly, one more thing will happen – the Senate will not convict the President. Nothing will happen to Trump. Most Americans are clueless about political processes, the law, and the Constitution. Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office. They don't understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed -- and **everything** will be allowed, including: DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover up and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information. They’ll incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros.

After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy and dishonesty. Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other important issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged somehow.

Couple of interesting procedural and process nuggets in the article, if accurate.

Some Crazycrats have already filed for impeachment but Pelosi is sitting on their attempts.

The real nub for her is that POTUS hasn't done anything before election that was wrong, and impeachment is a tool for actions in office. Since his term began he's also kept it between the lines. They're upset because of his philosophy and efforts to 'drain the swamp'. The gap between their fiction and his fact is a chasm they can't cross successfully. And it's a disservice 24/7 to the country as a whole to be bandying the prospect around.

Bill Clinton, Yale Law grad and former AG of Arkansas was impeached for perjuring himself under oath in a legal deposition about his sexual overtures to Paula Jones. He was also disbarred and paid her IIRC $850,000. That's what an impeachable action looks like. Even so, he was not convicted by the Senate.

Well that's all very well and interesting but what happens to policy and progress just to explore and expose what we already know. I'd rather things move forward. I am tired of the butt hurt parties battling hot air back and forth. There is a nation to keep in motion.

10:12 is right, the only reason they arent doing anything now is because it will fail due to the contol of the Senate. The democrats aren't even going to put too much effort in the Presidential election itself because the Grand Prize is control of the Senate. There are 34 seats up and 22 of them are held by Republicans. Dems only have to flip 4 for control. 2 are already in question (Gardner in Colorado and Collins in Maine), so the dems only really have to find 2 other seats out of 18 to target.

Hell. Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have skeletons in their closets. That includes both Pelosi and Mitch McConnell. The articles has some truth. I want the impeachment of Trump to proceed. I want the Senate to call all Democrat witnesses mentioned above so that every lie that has ever been told concerning the 2016 campaign will come out of the swamp unto dry land. It won't because two many lies have been told. But, what I do know about hit dogs, they do holler. Members of Congress know each other dirt. It doesn't matter if you are a Democrat or a Republican. Hit dogs do and will holler. Pelosi have enough dirt on both McConnell and Trump. These two men have dirt on Pelosi. That's how government has always worked. And, one do not need a political science degree to understand just how corrupted the White House and Congress are. Just hit on one Democrat or Republican in either House and all of them will holler. This is bigger than Hillary Clinton, B. Obama, D. Trump, McConnell, Pelosi and their cronies. This would be the biggest egregious issue to America national security and to the history of the United States presidency dating all the way back to George Washington. All the lies that have been told. It's just not cost effective and people just don't want to know the truth. The only way Congress can function is both House is either all Democrats or all Republicans. A president can barely function without the approval from Congress. Presidential executive powers can be overridden.
