    There is a scenario where impeachment could pass the Senate

    Quorum is 51 members. Impeachment requires 2/3 of those present. If things get so crazy that even the Republican Party decides impeachment is a good idea, all they have to do to save face is only four of them show up or everybody shows up and abstains.

    2. Works for me. Think anyone's run this by them? Someone should, even as an email.

    4. I like that you are thinking, send this to Schumer.

    But republicans, most of them, have no intention of doing jack shit that will interfere with their power because like Barr many think they are doing Jesus's work.


    And we are heathens who murder babies...that is what these very very low IQ folks think.

    6. I brought this up weeks ago

    and nobody noticed. It all boils down to who shows up. But I also wonder why any of the R Senators who signed Lindsey;s resolution opposing the impeachment and stating they've already made up their minds about it. That's declaring that they should be disqualified as jurors, period. That could play out with only a couple being qualified to vote on this at all which would mean all the Ds and a couple Rs being qualified which would clearly remove the POS.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    That's like the scenarios DUpipo saw in December, 2016 by which Hillary could still become President. Just like Pelosi might be able to remain Speaker even if the Rs regain the majority in the House by refusing to seat any newly elected Rs.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Who controls Senate hearings, DUmb sh*t? The Republicans. Democrats can't take a dump without majority approval.

    I see 2 possibilities for the Senate impeachment trial:

    1. Mitch does not act on it, or finds some other way to make the trial not happen

    or

    2. The trial does occur and Trump decides to make it into an Impeachment Bonanza, interrupt my soap for weeks, and nothing happens when it's all over except my soap gets canceled.


    DUers and my mom can fantasize about Trump in handcuffs the same way conservatives do about Hillary, but neither are going to prison.
