Meanwhile, I am once again forced to admit that Pelosi knows what the hell she's doing.

Now that Trump has had his big distraction and it's fallen off of the news...

What's her game do you think? I'm a little out of the loop on what's going on with it

Apparently, she anticipated the "wag the dog" business in Iran (or anticipated something like it), so she delayed until after the incident to release the impeachment articles to the senate.

Given that nothing else has changed, it's the only thing that makes sense.

That makes sense to me

I mean, my first thought ran to blackmail or intimidation rather than outright assassination.

But any of those things, to be done by an agent of the President's lawyer, against a sitting Ambassador, is still extremely fucking stupid.

It seems like there were concerns about her security, though

Oh it’s all going down in flames.

I’m not sure whether to prepare for our fucked up future in the US or to get out before someone notices what’s happening, freaks out, and knocks over a kettle drum of some horrible halogen polyfluoride while trying to run away.

Granted, that might end up being me if I get out. But at least I’ll be able to appreciate my demise, as my flesh catches fire and becomes a corrosive contact explosive.

Of course they did some dumb shit like this. Trump clearly has never heard of plausible deniability

Well, yeah.  The dems seem to be completely incapable of learning that the rules have changed.

Example:  That non-binding resolution about Iran.  How bowel-liquifyingly terrifying that must have been for Trump.

Also, when you subpoena someone and they say "no", the VERY FIRST THING YOU DO is send the sergeant at arms around to put them in shackles.

The White House violated federal law by withholding security aid approved by lawmakers for Ukraine, a nonpartisan congressional watchdog said on Thursday, in a blow for U.S. President Donald Trump as the Senate prepared to hold a trial on whether to remove him from office.

But it surprises no one. That the law has been violated and power has been abused is well established and the only legitimate legal recourse is well known. More documentation is just more kindling for the fire that nobody is serious about lighting. If the Democrats were serious, they'd be including Pence in this impeachment proceeding, and they'd be pulling every dirty trick they could on GOP senators, up to and including blackmail and extortion, because obviously we can't trust the Republican-controlled Senate to act in good faith. But they're not serious, they're just trying to score political points in an election year, as usual.

Everybody already knows the Republicans are corrupt and lawless, even the Republican base. It isn't going to bring them down, though. It's actually an advantage for them. The Democrats' political charades aren't going to motivate voters in November, they're just going to underscore the fact that no one with the power to confront Trumpism has any real inclination to confront it unless they can do so within the bounds of business as usual.
