Go back and read the history books and see where the support for Nixon's impeachment stood among the parties and public. It definitely wasn't a slam dunk. This day and age is way different though. People are willing to let a lot more slide and look the other way, especially for a man like Trump.

There were a lot of folks crossing the isle that were supporting Nixon before he resigned though initially this was not the case because the evidence was too damning. At least according to the history channel though they are biased.

I was referring mainly to Pelosi, although it did refer to the dems and radicals.

She's holding it up because she doesn't want the Senators and Chief Justice Roberts to remain in DC over the holidays.

Apparently the Senate is required to drop everything and start the "trial" as soon as the documents are delivered by the House.

Now whether she's signalling her intentions after the holidays is another thing all together.

So what you're saying is that after almost 3 years of the most tyrannical President ever to occupy 1600, she is worried about Christmas break for the Republican majority Senate?

Or perhaps she realize the entire impeachment was a Potemkin village, all show but no substance.

trophy for Political Metaphor of the Month goes to Sean Davis for his description last night of Cable News attempts to justify Pelosi Galore's Impeachment delay:

He has no positive influence on the market. If anything, he's had a detrimental impact. I work in mergers and acquisitions on the due diligence side. On a daily basis, I'm privy to internal company documents and shareholder meeting records that discuss how US companies are having to respond the tariffs and how those costs are being directly transferred to you and me.

1. Not officially impeached until paperwork hits the Senate.
2. Who is your candidate?
3. I wish I knew as much as you think you know.
