We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
They really think the optics on a Trump Impeachment are going to be good FOR THEM?
The Russia Collusion narrative collapsed. All their reasons for 'obstruction' look like the demented ravings of a disappointed teen. Yes, Queen Hillary didn't win. THIS will not provide her the coronation they think she deserves.
They don't just think, they know, that a lot of people want some reason, any reason, to not vote for Trump in 2020, or better yet to prevent Trump from running in 2020.
Because if Trump doesn't run in 2020 the elections are a guaranteed win for them, and when that happens there may as well never be elections again (and indeed there probably won't be) as they can and will change the electoral landscape in such ways as to make it utterly impossible for anyone else to ever have a large enough presence in congress again to stop them turning the country into a socialist utopia the way Chavez and Maduro did with Venezuela (notice how little time they needed to do that, then realise that pre-Chavez Venezuela was less socialist than the USA is today...).
They don't care. Too much winning going on. All their minority voters can get jobs. All the Middle class are working. Dammit. You gotta have a crisis to take advantage of don'tcha know. All they need to do is find some dirt, preferably something where Trump harmed or seemed to harm a minority or women, and they will exploit that to cut into his base. In the mean time change the electoral college rules state by state and sign up all the felons, illegals and find new ways to not count the military and you can beat Trump in 2020.
I think they should impeach him for Stuff. 30% of the population would agree.

Anything to keep the base ginned up. It will be interesting to see what they can uncover. Scary, disheartening, and infuriating that those that lectured us about accepting the results of an election, won't except the results, but interesting. I doubt it will be his taxes. Oh Nancy will move the outrage on for a bit more, caterwauling about Trump's taxes. With breaking news that AOC has some serious money laundering problems; Trump being a public figure for decades; all those willing IRS, liberal democrat employees, there is no way that the Nancy and Chuck, have not seen Trump's taxes. It's no accident that AOC is in such hot water, on multiple fronts. I suspect there is minimal damage in his returns. How can there not be issues? If the IRS wants, it can find something on anyone. Isn't that part of the reason for the complexity in the code?
