Not trying to sound dickish (really I'm not), but I actually already understand how the impeachment process works, and what the political realities are.

My point is more about releasing the evidence.  If the smoking gun exists, or if a case can be made, then I'm curious as to why they (whoever THEY are) aren't pushing forward with it.  Trying to first instead slowly build a case in the court of public opinion is risky -- the more time the Trump administration has to become entrenched, the more opportunities they have to build support within government and among the people.  It's a gamble to hold off and hope that he hangs himself in the meantime with his own hubris, and he can still do a lot of damage in the intervening time.

I can only assume at this point that any evidence that his enemies have gathered is not incontrovertible.
If I ever meet God in person, I'm going to ask Him why he created so many stupid people, and then punch Him in the nose before he answers.

either the information isn't reliable, which is entirely possible especially considering that very little of Trump can be pinned down as 100% true.

or the information is not in the hands of a political party, but instead some other govt/private group, and they don't yet know how they want to replace him and make it look entirely legal.

and perhaps the scariest is that the goal is not to impeach but control, which at this point someone has to have realized is a fool's errand.



ALL OF THAT BEING SAID, who cares really what's the worst that could happen xX)

Interesting speech (it's long): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLaoJrg80JQ

Truthdig columnist and Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges addresses fascism and the rise of the Trump war machine in the keynote speech at the "After Trump and Pussy Hats" event in Vancouver, British Columbia, on March 3, 2017.
