There is too much at stake for the public to be clinging to impeachment unicorns. It's clear that impeachment will do nothing to Donald Trump. Sure, it should still happen because it's the right legal process, but it won't save this country.
This might seem like just another Trump scandal, another horrible person he’s put into power, but it’s so much more than that.
Kamala Harris broke barriers at every stage of her career. Now she’s going for the one between women and the White House. Everything about Kamala Harris is so much more than merely not being Trump.
Though I will concede she is as much the opposite of Trump as one would want to be.
It would be a lie to tell you that I don't think this president deserves to be impeached, or that I don't agree that the rule of law is imperiled if he is not impeached by the House and convicted by the Senate. Intellectually, impeachment is the only answer to the immoral, unlawful attacks on democracy that are Donald Trump's presidency.
Stand up for women like you stand up for any other cause: We are real, we are right here, and we are in a crisis heretofore unseen.
The bullies of America know that Donald Trump has their backs. The bully can even be a race horse, for whom Trump will tweet a defense. Politically correct “MAGA” talk show hosts, people who are known to bully and harass on social media, can count on Trump to cry “censorship” when they are acted against. Naturally, Trump’s passion for free speech only applies to the free speech protections for his own tribe.
I know about the walking wounded, because that was my mother. She was a brilliant scientist who was nominated for the Nobel Prize. It was one of those times when yeah, it’s a big deal just to be nominated. That’s because my mother was an immigrant, a Holocaust survivor and a woman.
It took a Canadian to point out how our mainstream media is failing us.
Washington correspondent for the Toronto Star Daniel Dale observed how our media fails to even mention Trump's lies.
This was going to be a column on what looks to me like softening Republican support for Donald Trump. Instead it’s going to be about an aspect of one of the reasons Trump should be impeached. I will write that other column, but not today.
This won't stop until Donald Trump is finally held accountable for his own behavior for once in his life. It won't stop until he is dragged from the White House like the inhumane, unworthy, and illegitimate president he is.
In short, the danger in Trump’s language is that, for the surprisingly impressionable national audience, he degrades our democratic processes and safeguards against tyranny by recasting the fundamentals of democracy as instead the coarse and brutish misdeeds of a dictatorial power grab.
It's happening again.
The media is paving the way for Donald Trump to win 2020 with lazy, or perhaps purposeful, false equivalencies aimed at the top Democratic possible for 2020.
People need to stay resolute about reality, demand that news networks stop playing Trump’s lies without correcting them first
The president of New York's Metropolitan Republican Club advises a far-right group in Germany that endorses shooting migrants, forgetting the Holocaust, and is "Nazi-friendly."
Democratic primary voters would be smart to put Sherrod Brown – a man uniquely qualified to expose the fraud of Trumpism – on their personal shortlist in 2020.
Pelosi is not just doing her job to finally put a constitutional check on this presidency -- this crime and ethics violation ridden presidency, but she is quietly giving the women of this country the feeling that they matter and she won’t let this subjugating tyrant get off on hurting people anymore.
Those who claim this was a fight between parties are ignoring that one party was doing the will of the people, while the other was not. The Speaker got it done because it was the right thing to do and it should be remembered that she is not the person who held the government and 2 million people hostage over a failed campaign promise.
The following is an editorial by PoliticusUSA‘s co-publisher Sarah Jones.
The day before a judge admonished Trump‘s former National Security Adviser for selling out his country, suggesting that Flynn committed treason, former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone admitted to spreading lies on Alex Jones’ conspiracy oriented InfoWars.

The problem with this thinking is that it would mean Pence had to avoid not just controversy, but also criminal behavior. But it seems it hasn’t worked out that way.
