Wow. Those are some tiny hands! The sentiment seems about right, though.

Ditto to what Centrist said ........... trump may "bring the whole thing down". HIs threat of civil war and having the police on his side speaks volumes as to what this man will stoop to.  He has already formed a tear in the fabric of our society and will continue to rip away at it.

 

He must be stopped, but it seems an entire Republican Party will not stand up to him and many within that Party side with him. Those within the Republican Party that subscribe to the 'Deep State' conspiracy theory are a sign that some will never see or admit the truth about trump.

Indeed!  He's already suggested there will be a Civil War if he's impeached and falsely claimed the police will be on "his side".

 

Great cartoon there, Gordy!

The Problem With Impeachment

The Problem with Impeachment


Yes, Trump pressured Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to give him dirt on Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, and there probably is some.


Yes, it appears the U.S. president withheld roughly $400 million in military aid to Ukraine in order to exert leverage over that government.


Yes, he attempted to block the release of the whistleblower report that detailed his conduct.

 

Yes, this is a violation of the law, one that many Democrats in Congress see as an impeachable offense.


But this kind of dirty quid pro quo is the staple of politics and international relations.

 

  • Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence official, was hired to dig up dirt on Trump and Russia by Fusion GPS, a research and intelligence firm under contract to investigate Trump by Perkins Coie, a law firm working for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

 

  • Four decades ago, Ronald Reagan’s campaign manager, William Casey, asked the Iranians not to free the American hostages held in Tehran until after the November presidential election to hurt incumbent Jimmy Carter, according to Gary Sick, Carter’s chief aide on Iran. The American hostages were released the day Reagan was inaugurated, in January 1981.


Hillary Clinton, as far as we know, was never on the phone to Steele.


Reagan, as far as we know, was never on the phone to the Iranian president.


Trump’s fatal mistake was that he was overt in his request and he made it himself.


This kind of underhanded pressure to damage political opponents requires skillful hints, secret meetings, carefully calibrated pressure and total deniability. Trump is too clueless to play the game. Because of this he looks set to join the exclusive club of presidents who were impeached—Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton.

 

Trump, however, will not go quietly into this good night. He will attempt to bring the whole rotten edifice down with him. And he may succeed.
