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.
Bill Clinton committed crimes. Perhaps his impeachment was politically ill advised but if the Republican senators had looked at the evidence (which many refused to do) and voted their conscience and not their politics Clinton would have been impeached.
The impeachment attempt of Trump is nothing more than an illegal coup attempt and the Democrat representatives behind it should be shot.
it's not pointless. If they can keep the "investigation" and all the fake allegations and empty accusations going for another year, with the help of the MSM and international cooperation from globalist politicians of course of course, both of which are pretty much guaranteed, they're counting on getting the few million votes they need to win the 2020 elections and gain both the presidency and a majority in both the House and Senate, at which point they can fundamentally change the demographics so they'll never lose another election, ever again, at any level above local council elections.
It's useful to read this stuff after reviewing the excellent Gaul Saul Morson essay linked above. The point of the Democratic leadership's position is not whether they are defensible or indefensible, it's whether they offer a practical springboard for useful theater. I doubt they care one way or another about the truth of the charges.
