True the House could seek impeachment, however it will go nowhere in the Mitch House. Sorry, sad state of affairs. Shame it has to be 67 votes to convict
Conviction in the Senate is not the primary goal of impeachment now. And I think that the originally reasonable arguments by Pelosi et al. against impeachment have gone by the wayside with this most recent idiocy from the WH. It's time for the Congress, to borrow a phrase from the mango mussolini, to lock and load.
For one, PH, I disagree with something you say about you-know-who. If the House were to vote to impeach him I fear it would be seen as purely partisan, especially as there is zero chance of him actually being forced out, and so just supercharge his base and Republicans. That is the last thing needed a little more than a year out from an election. Let him continue to misbehave and the middle ground that will decide the next election will tire ever more of him and vote him out.
The focus now needs to be on outcomes not process.
