Groundhog Day: a second Trump impeachment could happen

As unlikely as it could happen, the eventual resolution of the Don McGahn testimony issue could bring another impeachment inquiry. The investigations continue regardless of this first impeachment, because there’s just so much Trump lawlessness, one Senate trial won’t be enough. And even if we get to a second Trump term alive, there could be more impeachments

House Counsel Douglas Letter said in a filing in federal court that a second impeachment could be necessary if the House uncovers new evidence that Trump attempted to obstruct investigations of his conduct. Letter made the argument as part of an inquiry by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals into whether Democrats still need testimony from former White House counsel Don McGahn after the votes last week to charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Letter’s new filing emphasizes the fact that nothing precludes the House from impeaching Trump again if it unearths new evidence, though no member of Democratic leadership has suggested such a course, particularly with a looming Senate trial and the presidential primary season imminent.

Letter also notes that McGahn’s testimony could become crucial evidence in the upcoming Senate trial.

and we have yet to hear from Rudy.

I asked him how he ever trusted Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two Russian associates with a business called Fraud Guarantee who were arrested by the FBI in October. “They look like Miami people. I know a lot of Miami people that look like that that are perfectly legitimate and act like them,” Giuliani said. “Neither one of them have ever been convicted of a crime. Neither one. And generally that’s my cutoff point, because if you do it based on allegations and claims and — you’re not gonna work with anybody,” he said, laughing. “Particularly in business.”

As we sped uptown, he spoke in monologue about the scandal he co-created, weaving one made-up talking point into another and another. He said former ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, whom he calls Santa Maria Yovanovitch, is “controlled” by George Soros. “He put all four ambassadors there. And he’s employing the FBI agents.” I told him he sounded crazy, but he insisted he wasn’t.

“Don’t tell me I’m anti-Semitic if I oppose him,” he said. “Soros is hardly a Jew. I’m more of a Jew than Soros is. I probably know more about — he doesn’t go to church, he doesn’t go to religion — synagogue. He doesn’t belong to a synagogue, he doesn’t support Israel, he’s an enemy of Israel. He’s elected eight anarchist DA’s in the United States. He’s a horrible human being.”

In the grand tradition of Soros conspiracy theorists, Giuliani believes the media is doing the billionaire’s bidding by printing lies about him, yet he often bungles his own attempts to discredit the media’s reporting. While attempting to argue that, despite what has been written, “I have no business interests in Ukraine,” he told me about his business interests in Ukraine.

McGahn’s testimony would be very interesting to say the least. Even the keebler cookie elf Jeff Sessions would add a few tidbits to the mix. Bring on as many articles as necessary the more the merrier.

I’d estimate one/month until November will do just fine.

I’ve always felt it’s going to take another impeachment, because of the Senate control .
We may have to wait until the next election
to see if Americans have the balls to vote the Democrats into control the Senate, to get him out !
Unless Nancy Pelosi’ strategy , works to dislodge
more evidence, so the Senate must remove Trump by default , because of overwhelming evidence. That means witnesses!

Nothing matters anymore, Russia has already decided 2020.
