I’ve been meaning to start doing these open discussion threads on my SubStack and now is as good a time as any.
In the future, they’ll be for subscribers only but now they’re open to all.
Here’s where we are…
VP Pence won’t consider the 25th amendment.
Biden, according to CNN, has no interest in impeachment and conviction (doesn’t directly involve him anyway). Not surprising, he wants to move on from the Trump presidency.
Pelosi and Schumer say they’re waiting to hear back from Pence.
Only way forward now seems to be for Pelosi to call back the House to pass articles of impeachment.
What will Mitch McConnell do if/when that lands on his desk?
One way to look at it, if Trump is impeached and convicted, he can’t run for office again if the Senate chooses to bar him from federal office. Will ambitious Republican Senators who want to run in 2024 support conviction and banning him from holding federal office again so that he won’t get in their way in 2024?
What should happen in your mind?
PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF EACH OTHER!
