The impeachment inquiry Trump has feared is here

Westlake Legal Group pgQn-Y7jg4CmTx-7tu2WN8-JECwddibSb2rzBcNYO5A The impeachment inquiry Trump has feared is here r/politics

Let me take a crack at each one of those.

“About time” or “They should have started this ages ago”

They did. They’ve had power since January. Mueller completed his Report in April. Mueller testified in July. In August, we’ve begun the impeachment process. This is breakneck speed for Congress.

“Pelosi won’t do anything”

It’s starting to seem like this was a well calculated plan by Pelosi, after all. Over a majority of her caucus has called for impeachment proceedings. She has publicly resisted, and the narrative why is because of politics. If she pulls the trigger, and gives her full support to impeachment now, as opposed to a few months ago, she now has the narrative that the evidence is so overwhelming against him, she has to impeach even if it isn’t the best thing politically to do.

(I’m not sure I agree it’s not the best thing politically to do. This is not 1998, and we aren’t impeaching over a blowjob. Also, we’ve impeached twice in this nation’s history. Both times the other party won the next election.)

“Doesn’t matter because the senate/mitch won’t convict”

Irrelevant. He’s impeached in the House. He will become the third American President to be impeached. That hurts.

Would an “acquittal” in the Senate help Trump in the election? Why would it? Should we really give the swing voters of America such little credit, that they wouldn’t realize any trial would just be a show rigged by McConnell and a jury of GOP Senators? We’ll put on our evidence in the House. The American people will see it.

Additionally, the prevailing legal theory is, an acquittal in the Senate, would in no way affect a prosecutors’ ability to prosecute him after he leaves the Oval Office.

Nadler Says It Out Loud: ‘This Is Formal Impeachment Proceedings’

Westlake Legal Group PcW9QuPSK2feLf2wMrVWN9uxsPI7zcB1HtLMgjZkKJA Nadler Says It Out Loud: ‘This Is Formal Impeachment Proceedings’ r/politics

the issue is that you could sell clinton’s impeachment to the american public

because we are a bunch of dumbs who get ‘he cheated on his wife’ much, much easier than a long list of civil violations more in the vein of interfacing with moneymen and legislature. one is a moral outrage, the other is some strange confusing thing that scares us

i’m not saying i hope he won’t be impeached or that he won’t be impeached, i dearly hope he does, and – well, i guess we’ll see. i wouldn’t bet on it but if there’s a possibility there’s some decent folks in the senate who will take a gamble on human decency there must be an attempt, at the least. for trump’s presidency to go down in history unchallenged would be a black mark on our heritage about as big as iran-contra.

just to emphasize the distinction between the two

Retired Marine 4-Star Warns White Nationalist Terrorism Is a Threat Equal to ISIS

I’m guessing you mean it’s worse because it isn’t some kind of vague, abstract, grainy-video threat from the other side of the world, but from a legal standpoint, countering domestic terrorism is actually legally more difficult.

The US federal government has a lot more legal leeway in combating foreign terrorism versus domestic terrorism, all while having to be very careful not to target any group for ideology due to the issue of free speech. For example, they can’t target white supremacists simply because they hate non-whites; their viewpoint is still protected speech. If you’re going after domestic terrorists, you really have to make sure your case looks like there was a credible and even specific threat and that the defense doesn’t have much of an argument they were just being broadly targeted due to ideology.

Koch Foods plant raided by ICE owed its workers $3.75 million from a 2018 class action lawsuit over discriminatory/abusive working conditions

Westlake Legal Group MiVO5MA9466BTigKx3jE87_VBbnwHlGOGYASkzR0mzg Koch Foods plant raided by ICE owed its workers $3.75 million from a 2018 class action lawsuit over discriminatory/abusive working conditions r/politics

At one time I lived in Arizona. I got very tired of hearing people complaining about Mexicans being freeloaders while most of the Mexicans I saw were working very hard in the lowest paying jobs. I asked the complainers if they really wanted to solved the problem because I had a sure way to do so. They wanted to know.

I told them it is really simple – PUT ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE HIRING the UNDOCUMENTED PEOPLE IN JAIL. PUT THE GUY WHO USES THEM TO CLEAN HIS HOTEL, THE COMPANY MANAGERS THAT USE THEM TO DO THE DISHES IN THEIR RESTURANTS, THE FARMER THAT USES THEM TO WORK IN THEIR FIELD, THE NEIGBOR WHO USES A MEXICAN TO CLEAN HER HOUSE AND YOUR RELETIVE THAT USES A MEXICAN TO DO HIS YARD WORK – PUT ALL the employers of these undocumented people IN JAIL. Then those Mexicans will not come to your state to work because there will be no jobs. If you do not want them here put their “job creators” in jail. They are breaking the law and creating the problem. EVERY TIME -dead silience, a glazed look, and changed the subject

PUT THE FRIGGIN EMPLOYERS IN JAIL -PROBLEM SOLVED – they will help their employees become legal because no one else is going to work for their wages.

Nadler: ‘This is formal impeachment proceedings’

Westlake Legal Group tay_ziJ7Dp5Y2lfFBUg--SwagzVVHibT3sZU869JT5M Nadler: ‘This is formal impeachment proceedings’ r/politics

This sub was about to explode for 2 months because Pelosi didn’t make some grand announcement with fireworks and confetti, putting the “I”-word in writing in the sky.

I tried explaining that an inquiry is happening, that it was being cited in judicial requests, etc, only to be downvoted to oblivion. I saw people threatening not to vote because of it. Every thread was littered with anti-Dem leadership comments. It was insane. And not all of them were bad faith accounts – many were genuine.

Hopefully this has largely come to an end now. It was a huge divisive issue among Dems that I’m sure foreign influences were trying to capitalize on.

California mayor orders flags to be kept at half-staff until Congress acts on gun legislation

Westlake Legal Group At6uUVd-q7WAyCyygSWsqxlW4dOolwaexga9FYwr_2Q California mayor orders flags to be kept at half-staff until Congress acts on gun legislation r/politics

but if Sandy Hook didn’t produce any serious gun reform

I am guna push back on this sentiment, not because you are wrong, but because giving up before trying wont ever lead to success.

Trust me, I totally get that feeling. You are probably right too. But if you are right 9 times out of 10, there is 10% chance you are wrong. I am willing to forge ahead with only a 10% chance of success.

If we keep fighting for all of the things we want, all of the improvements we need, the fixes to the problems we have always had, if we just keep trying, we will eventually get something passed. The only way we fail, is if we learn to stop trying.
