    I think we're actually due for a mild slowdown regardless. We've had slow and steady economic expansion for a while now. I'd rather the GOP be in office when it happens.

Unless they can prove he colluded with Trump on everything (which he most likely didnt) they wont even discuss it formally.

    Even if the Dems take back the House there is no way the Senate will flip and they wont remove one GOP President (hell half of them dont even want a special prosecutor) let alone 2. There is probably a better chance you win the lottery while being attacked by a shark whilst also being struck by lightning.

    Yeah the media has to love this and hate this. I mean for one thing they have new stories every 3 hours which is amazing but at the same time there is no way they can get to the bottom of all of them so it is a Sophie's Choice. I mean think about it as all of this is going on there is no talk of his failed Muslim Ban, the craptaculat Health Care Bill, the Tax Reform which will bankrupt us, the lovefest for every dictator, the alleged rape, the hate he has induced in people all his lies, his unsecure phone, his graft with Mar a Lago, Kushner's sister selling off citizenship, the Graft of the Trump Brand abroad...

    If the Dems had a shot to win the Senate I would agree with you but the chances are slim unless they pass the Health Care Bill as is. Too many Dem seats and not enough GOP seats up last I saw. No way a gOP Senate removes a GOP Prez from office...

    We're overdue for corrections. The only reason it hasn't started yet is that Wall Street was optimistic Trump would get his tax plan passed so they could have bigger bonuses, and therefore more pocket money for hookers and blow. They can still afford both regardless, so it's the middle class who will once again take it in the arse.

    Our best hope is Trump resigns or gets tossed, and Pence makes the Ford mistake of pardoning him from criminal prosecution.

    On a side note: Bizarro GOP Jerry Seinfeld (aka Mike Huckabee) tried out some new material tonight:

    @GovMikeHuckabee: On way to Chicago for speech. Expecting to have to run from plane dodging bullets like Hillary did in Bosnia when under sniper fire! Yikes!

    Trump resigning would have the positive effect of driving his supporters away from the polls the next time around, even if they could find Trump 2.0, so to speak. They already believe the system is rigged and it was only illegals and dead democrats voting the got Clinton a popular vote majority. If reality manages to drive trump from the White House they'll give up on a system that they believe will be proven corrupt because it drove their guy out. His supporters will still think trump is great, and will still not admit they were dupes and rubes. But they might not bother to vote the next time, which would be great.

    Here's an intriguing scenario: the House brings articles of impeachment against Trump. The Senate puts him on trial, and two GOP Senators flip, making it 50 no 50 yes. Does Pence vote yes, thus making himself POTUS, or does he vote no?

    This is what life is like with the Clintons. It is one scandal after another, and you never know what's coming next. They use the system to enrich themselves. Can we handle four years of this?

    Senate has to be 2-1 to convict

    Doesn't it take a supermajority to convict? So Pence would never be in a position to vote?

    Yes, bronco nick corrected me. It's two thirds. Hey, I was 16 when the whole Clinton trial happened. 😄

    My biggest concern with a Trump impeachment is his biggest mouthbreathers. Not that they would full-on revolt, but that the nuttiest of them would be spurred to terror acts, and would fail to understand why that is no different than the Islamist terrorists they fear and loathe.

    If even 1% of this country would die for Trump, we're in for a serious tragedy.

    From Politico:

    Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), when asked about the news by a POLITICO reporter, looked her in the eye, gave her the middle finger and walked away.
    Like all House members, he is up for re-election in November 2018.
