Yup, no way the Senate will convict. Which brings it back to Isaacs’ point – he is saying that it is politically smart for the Democrats to push the process in the House, with ample opportunity for months of hearings to air Trump ugliness before finally voting to impeach, even though the Senate will not convict. Also to publicly clarify that the Republicans will cover for Trump no matter what. Attempting to “convict” Trump, and the Republican party, on the reality TV show of impeachment hearings.
i guess, except that the neoliberal Democratic Party is part of the miasma of US political corruption that led to Trump, and there is not much “democracy” to “save” in the USA.
Obviously they “should” impeach, and should run hearings to expose Trump’s criminal gangsterism, and should exercise their plain duty under the US Constitution, and should use this to forward a strong campaign in 2020. But unless a bunch more honest Democrats win in 2020 (there are only a few in office now), and an honest Democratic presidential nominee wins the White House in 2020 (there are a couple among the dozens running), then we’ll get either Trump again, or a shiny new neoliberal Democrat, or the corrupt dinosaur Biden, and will continue on our rapid slide toward political social and ecological collapse.
Isaacs is “correct” but also is still not seeing how thoroughly awful the Democrats are and have been, or how compromised the “democracy” he wants to “save” already is.
