    We have never been as reliant on rules or law as some would like us to be. We are as much reliant on the common sense of the public servant and the public good as we are on rules and laws and Trump doesn't have any of that.

Now you say the process does not matter, just the results, right?

    Well, you cannot have it both ways. You have to decide whether the process or the results are what counts. If it is the former, then you are wrong about this recent action of Trump and if it is the latter, then you have to get off of complaining about how the Democrats handled the impeachment!

    Choose one!
    There is nothing wrong with Trump giving the US military permission to take out an enemy combatant in the war on terror. And a kangaroo court impeachment process which does not allow the defendant any right to defend himself and where some witnesses for the prosecution are not allowed to be cross examined is not right.

That is just plain hooey given that intelligence is involved, meaning that sending the articles of impeachment to a Congress that has already clearly stated that they will find Trump innocent no matter what happens would be just plain stupid. You don't fight a problem with stupidity even if the problem is immediate.

    Solution to the problem is the ultimate goal but doing something that is already guaranteed to work against the goal would not solve the problem and solution is what is needed, not haste to solve it.

    I am surprised in you. This has to be the most uninformed post you have ever posted..............or you are simply trying to be a pest that bugs for the simple sake of bugging.

    Shame on you!
    Well, if he was such an immediate threat then Nancy should have walked the articles over herself the second after the impeachment passed.

    Then it isn't law and Trump broke the existing (and written) law. It is clear as a bell.

    Evidently you don't see the hypocrisy there. I am not surprised, coming from you.

    Have a great day, you will need it (as a good memory) in preparation of the pain that is to come

    Nancy is smart (especially compared to McConnell and Trump) and doing something stupid is not in her repertoire.

    She now has a vote for impeachment and no exoneration from a kangaroo court panel. How much better can it get?

    It would be hard to make a strong rebuttal to an Emergency Powers claim in the case of the Soliemani assassination. Frankly that is not my concern though I understand how it could be for some folks. Just for context, an Emergency Powers claim for DonDon's Wall is hilariously absurd.

    That the administration has settled on this Imminent Threat claim that they can't make a case for is Keystone Kops stuff. Is there anybody left in Trump's National Security apparatus that knows how to think?
