The Problem is Bigger than Trump and Bigger than Impeachment

We have 3 branches of government for checks and balances. The problem is bigger than Trump, and, thus, bigger than impeachment. The Congressional act of impeachment is a necessary first action, but it will be the Judiciary that deals the final blows by forcing transparency.

We do not know what the Senate will do. We do not know if court decisions will come through before they must decide their verdict. But, court decisions will come. The truth will come out through FOIA dumps, SCOTUS decisions will be made. Indictments and trials will happen.

Most importantly, it will happen before the 2020 election. Whatever calculus Senate Republicans are employing, they know these variables are out there. I’ve little doubt there are Congressional members that know with dreaded certainty they won’t escape unscathed.

The light has been turned on and the roaches are scrambling. They’re in the White Hour, they’re in the House and the Senate. They’re surrounding this POTUS, defending him, gaslighting, deflecting and filled with fear. As they should be. This is a tale of a party that went too far.

The corruption is insidious and it will take time to fully expose it. It will take time to remove it. And it will take time to remedy the damage and heal this country. But, we will do it.
