    Trump Is Impeached.

    Trump has just been officially impeached in the house on two articles. Pelosi has just announced the votes affirming impeachment on these two articles and has adjourned the House until 9:00 PM.

    Will there be some specific policies and actions that the Republicans will force Trump to implement to keep their votes against removal from office?

    Now they has the best leverage.

    More troops deployed, more treaties, less tariffs and so on...

    I do not know. The Senate, in a bipartisan vote has just sanctioned Russia again for it's recent activities. Opposed by Trump. Maybe Trumpism is not totally triumphed yet. Stay tuned.

    It's early days. I'm sure given time there will be an excuse to blame it on the joos.

    What are you talking about?
    Last thing I heard from Senate was sanctioning Gazprom and everything around it.
    Are you saying that it was abuse of power by Senate which would give Russia excuse to get involved into US politics?

    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    McConnell has said that the Senate trial is already decided. He's coordinating with the White House, he'll have the full support of his fellow GOP Senators, and if he had the power he simply wouldn't bring the issue to a vote in the Senate.

    Nothing on the GOP side will change legislatively. Mitch will - as he's done thus far - kill every bill he doesn't feel like bringing up, will continue to expedite judicial appointments, and treat the impeachment like it's a nuisance to his power.

    He's already said to Trump "Mr. President, now that your impeachment is over, what would you like to do next?"

    Fascinating - Tulsi Gabbard voted "present" on both articles according to CNN. Nice to a presidential candidate take such a brave stance.

    That and $3 will get you coffee at Starbucks.

    Given that the Senate will not vote to convict, this is just so much political theater (of the absurd).
