Therein lies the rub. The Dems have spent the last 3 decades helping the GOP actively dismantle FDR’s legacy. Sanders’ 2016 platform was lifted right out of FDR’s Second Bill of Rights, yet party leaders were tripping all over themselves to defeat him. Most of those same party leaders are still holding the reins of power.
Pelosi/Schumer lived through the Clinton impeachment, and it’s coloring their perspective: they’re afraid they’ll lose, too. (They ignore that while Clinton remains a flawed politician and human being, he seems angelic compared to Trump.) Every day our communities sustain a potentially mortal wound to the rule of law and our democratic republic, a new refusal to cooperate with investigators, a new refusal to comply with the law, a new reason why He Trump is above the law, a new reason to lie. As Trump and associates thumb their noses at the law, a clear pattern of refusal to cooperate has been established. The window of opportunity is closing for the Dems, and they seem unable to fathom that doing more of the same is worse than losing the impeachment trial. This administration, like the last few, should be held accountable. We can’t go back and impeach Bush and Obama, but we can decide to restore and even strengthen the check on this and future presidents.
It seems pretty straight forward. It is Congress’ job to provide oversight. Itis a huge part of why this particular Congress got elected. EITHER IMPEACH, OR THROW THEIR SORRY ASSES IN JAIL FOR CONTEMPT, OR LOSE THE 2020 ELECTION.
