Too many people have too much to lose if this proceeds to a formal trial in the senate
More and more I’m becoming convinced that Trump will not be impeached on the basis that while this is all for show in the house, the lies and shady dealings could have very real consequences for a lot of people if they come out in a formal senate trial.

Schiif can prevent any discussion beyond the scope of the hearings now, but you can bet if any of these witnesses are lying or there is anything to the Biden collusion theories it will come out if he is in fact impeached by the House. And of course, the whistleblower will be known and (potentially) crucified with the rest of them.

Not to mention a trial a would be takingkeeping several Senators off the campaign trail leading up to NH. Of course it may give the Democrats running a noble excuse to drop out of the POTUS race.

I concur. No way House holds a vote. Not sure yet how they slip out the back door but it’s become obvious this has no teeth. 6 months of this in the senate will infuriate the American people.

I used to think similar, specifically that Pelosi would eventually "save the day" by coming forward to a microphone at press conference and declare that she and the Congressional Dems are choosing to forego any further impeachment efforts in order to be the ones to heal the country.

Now I'm not so sure. Reason being, very simply, the verbiage they've chosen to parrot, i.e. absolute 100% indisputable foregone conclusion that Trump is guilty. Not so sure they can walk away from that now, as perhaps they could have had they employed the use of terminology such as "alleged" etc. They would have left themselves an out with that, but instead they went full-bore.

I’m with you but I have no idea how they please their fricking insane base if they back off. The Left will lose it.

I agree with you.
The Dems have way too much to lose by bringing the impeachment trial to the Senate. I’ll say this with the caveat that the Dems actions are rarely logical.

Too late. It will happen. The radical left will force it through as they have taken over the party

I think her out is going to be that while they are positive he is guilty, they do not want to go forward without the public support of one Republican. She’ll reference her earlier comment about the vote having to be bipartisan, and say that since the Republicans are sticking together despite the overwhelming "proof" of his guilt, she doesn’t think that it will help the country heal by going forward.

Well then let Trump bring on all his witnesses, declass everything, roll the FISA investigation along with Barr/Durham and....

The United States expects that every man will do his duty, cross the "T", and give em the full broadside.

The ONLY way the DEMs can salvage any iota of integrity is for Pelosi to call this thing off and censure Schiff, Nadler, et all - remove them from all committees they serve on, and call for their resignation - or vote to kick them out of the chamber.

They will HAVE to take some heads - admit absolute criminal behavior in the "russian collusion" hoax and name names.

In other words, they need to commit political suicide in order to gan any respect.

Will never happen.

No there are no rules they are following now. Even if they get no Rep, they will vote and say the Rep know he is guilty but dont have guts to vote, bla bla. They are not rational, they will say and do anything. How any sane voter can support these loons is beyond me.

They got torn up yesterday; particularly with Morrison and 3/4 of Volker.

The problem is Schiff continues to conflate “2016” with Biden and that is sticking. When he has the mic and is able to go unchallenged, he continues to reference the two as being one in the same - when we all know they are not.

I'm convinced that the orders have already come down from Obama to stop this charade due to the noose tightening on what is being uncovered.

No way this scam proceeds.

The Dems will say we got him. The hearing has shown the country that orange man bad. They will say they have more than enough to impeach him.

BUT

They will say it is less than a year to the election. They will say they have no doubt the people will choose the correct thing. They will use this to denigrate trump.

They will not impeach. They have shown the best they have. It's all nothing.

Trump fricked them when he released the transcript.

Angry Grandma has put Schiff front and center at all of this, for a reason.

If anything incriminating were to come out, detailing something random, like security footage of Schiff, dressed in drag, running around one of the hillside bungalows of Chateau Marmont like a crazy person because the black preteen he had drugged up so he could abuse had OD'ed and died over the course of being raped, then that might be used as a play to save the Dems while just Schiff goes down.

Or something similarly random.

Ha, ha. Very “random”.

It could be something else. Maybe Pelosi wants to continue sitting on that footage. There's always other things that could pop up.

What if Schiff didn't want the bungalow "incident" getting out, so he called his friend the GM of the Standard Hotel (it and Chateau Marmont are owned by the same dude, after all) and he enlisted her help in cleaning up the mess.

No, that can't be right... She's no threat to rat out Schiff. She and a few hotel colleagues died in a helicopter crash, a few weeks later.
