    I mean, there's a lot of things that could happen. It could take a life of it's own and doom the chances of ousting Trump. Politically, it seems like a crapshoot.

    I tend to agree that it has to be done, though. But man, it's gonna be a wild ride.

    I think that it would have been better to wait until after the full transcript has been released and we hear from the whistleblower.

    Pelosi is tired of trying to rein in the radicals of her party. They've been trying to impeach since day one. She knows what a mess it would be.

    So she's letting this go forward, so that her Democrat opponents can make as big a case as they can over this, so that when Trump releases the transcript the radical Democrats all look even more foolish than before.

    Plus, by trying to impeach Trump over Biden's political dealings, there is either some inoculation of Biden against these charges or there is a way to get him out of the way for Warren.

    That full transcript wasn't coming out until Pelosi made the symbolic maneuver. It still hasn't technically been released yet, or the restrictions they could release it.

    This could backfire spectacularly. Make sure it's done right. If they try and fail to impeach him that will only mobilize votes in his favour. If you pull the trigger make sure you have a kill shot.

    Trump's approval ratings were up to 48% this week. Will the impeachment help reelect Trump? It's very difficult to understand how so many people continue to support this horrible, incompetent man, but I've already seen Trump 2020 signs and a man wearing a Trump t-shirt in the last few days. What is wrong with these people!

    Trump talked with Ukraine, there was a whistleblowing event, the Trump Admin interfered (obstructed) with the claim being released through the proper channels. Trump denied everything, then parts, then admitted to most of it and we are stuck with the final piece over how the funding to Ukraine was delayed the week his call to Ukraine is made and only pushed through when the Senate got involved.

    So that is either long-term false flag bullshit, or Trump did something really wrong and they are desperate to create this Biden shield to protect him. After all, if they knew Biden was dirty, they wouldn't need Ukraine to act, and they could use the info down the road. The Trump Admin is in panic spin mode and the only two things saving them are the GOP and Americans that have lost their fucking minds.

    Pelosi is extremely shrewd and meticulous. She has to know more at this point, specifically info on the funding to Ukraine or quotes.

    Yes, failing on this kills our country and applications to move to Canada will skyrocket.

    Love how after two fucking years of Mueller gathering evidence against Trump, during which time he was repeatedly accused of rape, presided over the barbaric imprisonment of migrants that continues to this day, and flagrantly violated the emoluments clause multiple times, picking on Biden's corrupt failson was the straw that broke the camel's back.

    As a Canadian I have only one response: Build that wall. Built that wall on the Southern border to keep the Americans out, and make Donald Trump pay for it.
