Bruce McKinnon, drawing in the Halifax Chronicle Herald, gets the impeachment process exactly right:
- “The House will vote to impeach the president;
- There will be both joy and outrage on the streets ~ and likely violence, even armed violence, too, when the joyful and the outraged meet, as they surely will;
- The United States Senate will not convict President Trump … no matter what the evidence might be; and
- The Democrats will pick a candidate who cannot beat President Trump in 2020 and he will be re-elected.“
Nothing in the articles of impeachment nor in the state of Democratic politics gives me any reason to change my mind. I stick with my prediction that we are in for an interesting few years in the Excited States of America.
