We can always hope.
What would happen if Donald Trump was impeached?

This guy has such an overactive scurrilous past that a Watergate type Albatross could hang over him his whole term — however short (fingers crossed) that may be.

Woman accusing Trump of raping her at 13 cancels her plan to go public [death threats]
The Guardian, Nov 3
With Bloom coming on board Doe appeared – until the press conference fiasco – to have acquired considerable additional legal and media firepower.
The founder and owner of The Bloom Firm, which handles family, civil and criminal cases in California and New York, has in the past sued the Boy Scouts of America and the Los Angeles police department. Bloom hosts a Court TV talkshow and is a legal analyst for NBC News.
. . .
Judge Ronnie Abrams has ordered counsel for Trump and Epstein to appear in his New York district court along with Doe’s legal team for an initial status conference on 16 December. That raises the extraordinary prospect, were Trump to win the election, of counsel for a US president-elect being called into federal court in proceedings relating to allegations of rape of an underage girl.
Thank you, veterans!
Are you running a fever Denis? You think Republican majorities in both house and senate and impeaching trump go together?
I’m crossing my fingers he puts a special prosecutor on Hillary after Obama leaves , if he does actual progressives should send him a thank you card.
If there is enough of a public commotion (think worst case) — remember good old conserv Pence — no party disloyalty there. 🙂
A couple of predictions:
1) new management on several staffs, EPA, GISS (NASA’s Global Warming Group), NOAA, and Energy
2) soon after scientific papers by insiders and outsiders to these groups will be released showing how the past temperature measurement/estimates were processed incorrectly
3) EPA will re-focus on real environmental issues and GW attention will dramatically reduce
4) energy generation will add focus to fossil and nuclear fueled sources
5) shift in focus to fossil fuels and an increase willingness to export them will change US import/export GDP values
This is an example of the kind of changes to expect to see in scientific studies: https://www3.epa.gov/ttnamti1/archive/files/ambient/criteria/reldocs/finalreport.pdf
It’s been in the EPA archives for years, but ignored because it didn’t support the agenda. That agenda is changed.
Impeach Pence first. Please. He’s a christian dominionist. The cure is likely far worse than this particular disease.
