    Some Democrat friendly legal scholars and other "experts" will weigh in on what's impeachable, and there will be some procedural stuff. But, the whole proceeding will just be largely a rehash of what's already gone on. I expect Nadler to decide on an outcome (vote for actual impeachment or not) by late next week or so as it seems the Democrats really want to move it to a conclusion before Christmas. I'd say a vote or decision will be out between about the 13th and 18th at the very latest.

      The stunningly consequential accusation spelled out in the Democrats' impeachment report represents the most sweeping effort yet to capture the span of President Donald Trump's alleged offense and to boil it into a crisp indictment.


      In effect, the 300-page House Intelligence Committee summary of witness testimony, timelines and phone records accused Trump of perpetrating one of the most serious political crimes in the history of the United States.

      The report is a roadmap toward formal articles of impeachment -- an argument to a nation split in two on Trump's political fate that there is no alternative but to remove him from office 11 months before the next general election over his pressure on Ukraine for political favors.

      The stark charge that the House Judiciary Committee will take up in its first impeachment hearing Wednesday fits the gravity of Congress' most somber duty -- deciding whether to end a presidency.
      It is that the 45th President presents an immediate, clear and future threat to American national security, the Constitution and the resilience of the republic's democratic self-governance itself.
      "We should care about this, we must care about this, and if we don't care about this, we can darn well be sure the President will be back at it doing this all over again," House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, said Tuesday.
      For all the all-consuming clamor of two-month-old impeachment intrigue and the vicious political crossfire, Wednesday's hearing represents a dark moment in America's story.
      An attempt to oust a sitting President has only got this far three previous times, and impeachment typically opens political sores that infect the nation's political life for decades.
      Yet as momentous as the current situation is, it's hardly a surprise. From its first hours, Trump's presidency has torn at the conventions of his office, rejected constraints that his predecessors accepted and barged into the boundaries of the law. Impeachment has often seemed like a logical consequence.
      We are not now that strength which in old days
      Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
      Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
      To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

          Vice President Mike Pence is among the top officials culpable in President Donald Trump’s efforts to bend U.S. foreign policy for personal gain, according to a report released Tuesday from House Democrats investigating the potential impeachment of Trump.

          Pence and other senior officials “were either knowledgeable of or active participants in an effort to extract from a foreign nation the personal political benefits sought by the president,” according to the 300-page report prepared by three House committees and based on weeks of public and private testimony from officials.

          The report also faults Pence for not producing “a single document” requested by the panels and for blocking release of part of a transcript of his Sept. 18 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky
