      Sadly I do too, unless the House follows John Dean’s advice and drags out the timeline to force concessions regarding how the trail will be handled. Its the only card they really have to play . . .Report

    For 20 minutes yesterday, there seemed to have been a small window where the House could have dropped impeachment and declared “the Senate has already declared how they’re going to vote, this is a farce, let’s get back to talking about the election”.

    At the same time, there was a Congressman from New Jersey (Jeff Van Drew) who switched parties. As indicators go, this one is rare enough that we’re not sure what it indicates.

    Dropping impeachment struck me (and strikes me) as a pretty good play (even as it’s not exactly what I wanted). It doesn’t give Trump an opportunity to declare victory and explain that he was exonerated by the Senate and it lets us get back to talking about important stuff like cadets playing the circle game and whether we should mandate that census forms use the term “LatinX”.

    As it is… looks like we’re moving forward.

    Full speed ahead.Report

    1. So far the House Democrats in Republican friendly districts are largely stating that they are going to impeach. So dozens of defectors might end up being one or two.

    2. Trump’s six page letter is a good sign that he is well on the way to losing it even more.Report
