“Very Few Hearings, If Any”: Dems Hoping To Rush Through Impeachment Before Thanksgiving

Excerpt:

The official word is that there’s no timetable but the political reality is that Democrats need this done ASAP.

Which is bad news for Trump since it leaves him less time to plead his case and produce exculpatory evidence before Dems take the plunge.

But it’s good news for Senate Republicans. The less time Democrats give themselves to build a case against Trump, the less persuasive that case will be by the time it gets to the Senate, the easier it’ll be for Republicans there to say, “I’m troubled but it’s just not enough to convict.”

Plus, Cocaine Mitch doubtless wants this over as soon as Pelosi does. Nothing good can come from Susan Collins and Cory Gardner having to linger in impeachment limbo while voters in their home states scream at them to vote yes/no.

Very few hearings, if any,” said a senior Democratic aide, who said the coming investigative work will largely take place in closed-door interviews. The aide spoke on the condition of anonymity to speak frankly…

Under an informal timeline discussed by multiple Democrats on Wednesday, the Intelligence Committee would spend the coming weeks investigating the Ukrainian allegations. Meanwhile, the other five committees investigating Trump-related matters would work to close out their own investigative portfolios. After that, the findings would be passed to the Judiciary Committee, with Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) taking the lead in drafting potential articles of impeachment.

Following the two-week recess, the House is scheduled to be in session for the last three weeks of October, then after another one-week recess, another two weeks in session before Thanksgiving. Some Democratic lawmakers and aides said Thursday, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe private deliberations, that they believed impeachment articles could be ready for a House vote around Thanksgiving.

Centrist Dems want to go slow in order to show right-leaning voters back home that they’re taking this seriously and not rushing to conclusions about Trump. But that timeline doesn’t work for the party. Pelosi’s worried about this bleeding into next year and disrupting the primaries while Democratic candidates are busy trying to make their case to voters on policy. And with every day that passes, the argument grows stronger that we’re close enough to Election Day to let voters resolve this matter at the polls.

Republicans in the House should insist on roll call votes for everything. Rat the bastards out.

Why would Trump have to plead his case? Everyone knows he did nothing wrong.

Why would republicans say “we’re troubled”? What is there to be troubled about, beyond the hypocrisy and hyperbole of the democrats?

They were screaming impeach before he was sworn into office. That wasn't the fringe either that was mainstream Demoncrats stating he's done "something" illegal. If local law enforcement acted like these idiots we would all be out of a job. Hell I had a pursuit on sunday, lasted 3 and a half minutes and he ended up wrecking out on one of our sheriff vehicles. The paperwork took 9 hours to complete, I had to also sit with him in the hospital for 4 hours. Guess what? I didn't treat him like the demoncrats treat our POTUS.

Because most republicans in office right now are spineless gutless wonders.

They all have sat on their hands and have not done a damned thing to help Trump or beat down the lawless democraps.

The dumbascraps want to "rush through" this because they damned well know that they have NOTHING once again.

They're just throwing more of their shidt lies up into the air hoping that it will stick to Trump this time.

Yes, let's have a Soviet-style show trial based on hearsay from a political operative in order to nullify the results of the 2016 election on Thanksgiving Day. Why, it will be as popular as Nancy Pelosi's "gift to the American people" that Congress rammed through on Christmas Eve.
