its called a lawsuit claiming due process violations with a majority conservative supreme court and no legal way to prevent them from seeing it.Without the impeachment inquiry vote passing, this is a brazenly unfair secret trial piece of crap that will lose its legitimacy.
This is just the punch, and it sucks. We need to see what President Trump has as the counterpunch.
Trump isnt going to be impeached because the Democrats arent making a case to convince 50%+1 of americans to demand his removal before an electionIf you join the mob, people you work with are going to die.
And I am 10 billion percent certain Trump isn't going to be impached. Because that's not even a real thing.
Also, it doesn't matter until that melting cunt Nancy Pelosi actually puts the impeachment inquiry on the record with a vote.
There is a LEGAL ARGUMENT that without their having an impeachment vote Obstruction of Justice doesnt applyits called a lawsuit claiming due process violations with a majority conservative supreme court and no legal way to prevent them from seeing it.
they could try to anyway without a vote but doing so just fucks them and future impeachments over. on both sides.
exactly. without a vote, any further attempts will be beat down with that exact argument and unless the democrats want to fracture their kingdom for eons to come, they will relent each time the president tells them to fuck off. the moment they bring it to a court room, it goes before the now majority republican supreme court who likely have some not-so-favorable-for-dem opinions on impeachment.My understanding was that there was no "due process" because impeachment is an extralegal process.
This impeachment shitshow is basically the political version of Hannibal and the Romans at Cannae with Trump playing the former and the Dem leadership playing the latter.At this point, I think it’s too late for them to pull back. So they might decide to just shoot the moon and pray.
Seriously, whether it was a trap or just a good reaction, they got baited into running with their biggest weapon at what they thought was a weak flank, only to have it turn around and snap back at them.
I don’t think there’s any way they can just walk this back now. It’s like with the shutdown a couple years ago - if they blink, they lose their one shot and whatever high ground they believe they’re on. They might think they can walk away, but I’m pretty sure they’re pot committed at this point.
while maybe true, trump could just force everything into a court where it will simply be deemed unconstitution and declaw any future impeachments even if this one manages to get him impeached down the line.There's nothing that says they have to vote to start the inquiry, it's just an optional part of the process. Trump still has to comply with their supeona's or he's obstructing justice
Trump won’t comply unless they vote. If he doesn’t comply, what’re they gonna do? Impeach him? We already settled that the Democrats don’t want to actually impeach Trump or else they’d have drafted articles of impeachment ages ago. Instead they’re just dithering and pretending there’s more information to be had or the next big bombshell is just around the corner, while never actually getting around to doing anything.There's nothing that says they have to vote to start the inquiry, it's just an optional part of the process. Trump still has to comply with their supeona's or he's obstructing justice
Wut?There's nothing that says they have to vote to start the inquiry, it's just an optional part of the process. Trump still has to comply with their supeona's or he's obstructing justice
I beg to differ.
They have no force of law to penalize people if they don't testify. They are just strongly worded letters to go to the witch hunt and have what you say reported back to WaPo and New York Times. Its a shame somebody already agreed to it and had the "bombshells" immediately "leaked" to New York Times in 24 hours. Schiff always has "leaks" happen, doesn't he? Gimme a break.
You’re going to have to link me to that bit of Ashy’s autism. I need a good laugh tbqh
