Ummm. Yes. That’s the Ticket

I, probably obviously, think TPM Reader JB has this right …

I seriously don’t know why Dems are arguing about impeachment now, impeachment later or impeachment not at all. It’s irrelevant.

This Senate will not convict, and Agent Orange will take that as a victory into November 2020. Insane.

But he must leave office in January 2021. To ensure that, we need hearings. Lots of hearings.

I was in college during the height of Watergate. I remember the coverage, but most of all I remember the House and Senate hearings, broadcast live: unscripted, honest and open, with high stakes. That’s what flipped public opinion then, and it will so it again.

But I don’t see that happening. Instead we’re arguing about what the objective should be. *That’s* silly
