    I'm also pretty sure double jeopardy applies to impeachment proceedings so Democrats are by and large better off waiting for Mueller to nail Trump to the wall before taking their shots.

    If that's the case it 10000% makes sense to not push the matter this exact moment, when there could actually be a super strong case literally any day now. Either from Muller putting the big proof down or from full on camera dementia break down.

    None of the republicans like him either and when the time comes they'll be glad to be rid of him too with any half reasonable excuse. But with dozens of super crazy huge things going on by the end of the month... no, it's just not time yet.

    Don’t blame the election on fake news. Blame it on the media.


    "In just six days, The New York Times ran as many cover stories about Hillary Clinton’s emails as they did about all policy issues combined in the 69 days leading up to the election."

    Al Franken will resign which means a seat that would have been safe until 2020 is now a pretty good chance for a Republican pickup in 2018. Hillary only won the state by 1.5%.

    The GOP will, of course, continue to use this as an example of how awful Democrats are while dealing with none of their own, far worse sexual predators.

    The media will, of course, go along with them in this.

    Eh, I don't see Franken's seat as being particularly risky. Sure Hillary only won Minnesota by a narrow margin but it still went Democrat when most of the region flipped in 2016. Given how monumentally unpopular Trump and the Republicans are, I'd guess that the Democratic nominee wins pretty handily in 2018.

    There are several (likely) closer Senate races the Democrats need to defend against. At the very least, if they fail to capture the Senate in 2018 it won't be just because of Minnesota.

    Republicans can vote for Roy Moore with a clear conscience now that a Democrat has accepted consequences for something.

    Headlines Dems want: "Democrats accept the consequences of sexual misconduct, while Republicans welcome child molester Moore"

    Headlines Dems get: "Dems in disarray now attacking each other, GOP rallies behind Moore"

    Another thing to keep in mind is that this establishes a clear precedent that Democratoc Senators will be expected to follow. So it's only a matter of time until we see this with one from a state with a Republican governor.

    Some are reporting that Minnesota's Governor is leaning towards appointing the Lt. Governor to fill Franken's seat while Dayton says that he's not made up his mind yet. She apparently has no interest in serving in Congress so that would make it an open seat.

    Why was this even done now when, as I understand, even if Dems were united the impeachment would fail?

    Would another impeachment effort look pathetic later on due to this failure? Or would it actually land damage to Trump if it happened a second time and failed again?

    Dems again going for fair play and non-partisanship by appointing someone who won't run in 2018.

    Kaine calls on Senate to publicly release sexual harassment claims

    I don't know if this'll go anywhere, but I hope it does. I'm still hoping this train of sexual harassment claims doesn't end anytime soon, and especially with the Senate.

    Also, it's Tim Kaine again! He seems like the type to have never harassed someone,or done anything fun. That's probably why he's asking for this.

    That's weird I've lived in New York for the last 27 years and can't ever remember having to be driven to a bus stop under threat of potential violence.

    I mean maybe something like Brentwood as of recent, but that's one of the most extreme examples in the last 50 or so years of Suffolk County of gang violence risks.

    Earlier this year at a campaign event an audience member asked this senate candidate, 'When was the last time America was great?' The Senate candidate's response?

    "I think it was great at the time when families were united—even though we had slavery—they cared for one another…Our families were strong, our country had a direction."

    -Roy Moore

    No surprise there. Luckily, this comment is resurfacing in a big way. Will it affect the race? Well, he is running in Alabama so that's a toss up.

    As it would be coming from a moron who thinks marijuana and undocumented immigrants are more of a threat to the fabric of society than loose gun laws and trigger happy Americans.

    Nah, it's mostly just irrelevant. Probably just trying to score some cheap points for later.

    Wikileaks offered the Trump campaign access to the Podesta emails a month before releasing them.
