The votes are counted and the outcome was anything but a surprise…if anything it was a bit pathetic.

What about tomorrow?

This is a bit of ‘What If” sort of thing……

My friend John of Lines by Liming….. (visit him sometime)….recently John made a comment here on IST about the possibility of an impeachment process if another person is elected……

And the possibility is there…..let’s say it is Biden that gets elected….according to Sen. Joni Ernst the retaliation will begin immediately……it will be as predicted…..a tit for tat……

“I think this door of impeachable whatever has been opened,” said Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst—and it wasn’t just a statement, but a warning. In Sunday comments to Bloomberg News, the Republican suggested that should Joe Biden end up winning the presidency, a GOP effort to impeach him in connection with the Ukraine could begin on his first day in the White House. Specifically, “for being assigned [by then-President Obama] to take on Ukrainian corruption yet turning a blind eye to Burisma because his son was on the board making over a million dollars a year,” she said.

In comments to the Des Moines Register, Biden said that Ernst’s comments—that one and ones she made earlier in the week about Biden and Trump’s impeachment—back his case that the crux of Trump’s interaction with the Ukraine was centered on the possibility of a Trump vs. Biden race. Ernst “just reinforces everything that was the reason why the president was being impeached: They very much don’t want to face me obviously,” said Biden. “I’ve never seen a sitting president and his allies this frightened about who may be the nominee.”

All this tit for tat started in earnest in the 1990s with a House controlled by the GOP and Newt….and it has been brewing ever since……

But maybe Joni should keep in mind that Impeachment begins in the House…..she is just another GOPer trying to sound like they know stuff when they can scratch their butt without asking Google for directions.

Why do the jog of governing when this type of game is so much easier and more profitable for the players?

  1. Frankly, I don’t think so. Obama was tolerated, wasn’t he?
    The Dems knew he wasn’t guilty, yet they wasted 5 months and how much money? They went out of their way to avoid doing anything of value for their own constituents.

    1. See I believe the evidence guilty….so do not think it was a waste but rather a test of the Constitution and the Constitution lost big time….chuq

      1. Once again we agree to disagree. The rules were followed and the vote came in not-guilty, what more could you want?

      2. I recall Adam (wonder-boy of CA) threatening the Senate with – “If you decide to call witnesses, then we will call hundreds and you won’t get anything done the rest of the year.” How mature and legalese was that?

      3. Do not get me wrong I am no supporter of the Senate in any party….I only was referring to the process… not care who was the focus…the process was flawed. chuq

      4. Yes….to deny access witnesses made it more and more flawed…..this has set up the Imperial Prewsidency and we can point to the Founders for the result of all this silliness. chuq
