Perhaps the Speaker of the House will eventually be convicted of non-impeachment for failing to lead her timid herd of castrated cats into at least beginning impeachment hearings, if not actually bringing Bills of Impeachment against Brett Kavanaugh and William Barr for lying to Congress and also against Donald J. Trump for several High Crimes and Misdemeanors, including Obstruction of Justice, violations of the Emoluments Clause and Treason. SFAIK, “impeachment” itself isn’t a crime, and no-one – not even Donald J. Trump – can be brought to trial on a charge of “impeachment”, nor can the Senate convict anyone of “impeachment”, which is the process whereby the House of Representatives is supposed to bring a person to trial in the Senate for the commission of “high crimes and misdemeanors” against the United States.
While I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Reich’s thesis, I do think he should have written " . . . because Senate Republicans [who fear reprisals by Trump’s base] won’t convict him of his several impeachable offenses."
