    It looks like the Ds have alienated a HUGE HUNK of the electorate at the very least
    It seems likely that at least some of the house leadership will face criminal charges with Sedition and perjury being the most likely.
    And there is a large likelihood that Pelosi will not be able to get the votes to impeach
    The senate may not even pick up the impeachment for lack of due process.
    The Horowitz report could easily lead to a special counsel and indictments.
    Is there an upside to this action?

    "Peloton" is getting more google searches than "impeachment".

    American has already figured out the Dimwingers have nothing and have moved on.

    I'm wondering if Pelosi loves motherfuckers. That's what her comrade Talib called Trump. Pigs.

    Who knows what the numbers will be, but is it out of the question to suggest 5% of those who would have voted for Dems, don't? Maybe 20% MORE Independents vote for Trump, and the GOP get an increase in their voter base to come out due to the rage they feel about the 4 years of the opposition trying to usurp their election choice?

    Complete and total pipe dreams.
    Yet another thread for you folks to roll in like a dog in road kill. Enjoy yourselves, because that is ALL you are going to get from this, is dreams.

    How about a link to prove some of your OP claims?
    1. Yes the D's alienated many voters
    2. Who do you think will be charged with sedition and perjury? None of the dems were even under oath yet?!
    3. Agree the vote to impeach will be close
    4. The senate will hold a trial, with a witness list of: Schiff, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Chalupa, Ciaramella, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, the Ohrs, etc.
    5. Not only the Horowitz report, but Barr's, Huber's, and Durham's. No special counsel, they have grand juries.

    I think everyone is bored already. I know I am.

    Half of America wants Trump not only impeached, but removed from office as well. That's a hell of a position to be campaigning from.

    I know Trump likes a challenge, though. But he is showing a lot of signs of mental wear and tear because of this.

    I'm old enough to remember the "Clinton fatigue" which had set in by 2000. That was probably the chief reason Hillary Clinton didn't get the nomination in 2008.

    It seems to me "Trump fatigue" has set in already. People are catching on to Trump. They knew he was a big, fat liar when they voted for him, but I think they are starting to ask themselves what exactly they are supporting him for if he doesn't actually stand for anything but the furtherance of his ego.

    Everything depends on the economy. It's the only thing Trump has going in his favor.

    If the economy tanks, then Trump has nothing. And he is taking a gigantic risk with the economy by persisting in his stupid tariff war.

    "It's the economy, stupid!"
