Nixon resigned only after the leaders of his own party in Congress assured him that the votes were there in the Senate for his removal from office. You might call it a "plea deal", since Nixon was pardoned by Ford almost immediately, before criminal charges could be filed. 1/8
As for Trump, it is virtually certain that the votes do not currently exist in the Senate for his removal today. There are also likely not enough votes in the House to begin an impeachment inquiry or it would probably be done already. 2/8
Perhaps the reason Speaker Pelosi hasn't called a vote yet isn't because she doesn't want to, but because she doesn't want to throw good Reps under the bus. That means the House has work to do, far beyond whatever is or is not in the Mueller report.  3/8
At least 20 Republican Senators must be persuaded that the national interest, or at least their own political survival, depends on removing Trump from office.

For those reasons, I think "Impeach Now" is a non-starter, but that doesn't mean "Impeach Later" is off the table. 4/8
Any good prosecutor builds a solid case that can win BEFORE preparing indictments. That's what the Democrats are doing now and the 80-plus who support impeachment see it.

I'm pro-impeachment. I wish it was already happening & that it would put an end to this administration. 5/8
But, it won't. There's nothing to suggest it will slow anything down and there will still be functioning/disfunctioning parts of the Trump administration moving no matter what happens until we vote them out. This is reality. 6/8
What we need to do right now is what we did from the beginning of the Resistance, through the seats we flipped in 2017, and through everything we accomplished in 2018 and that is stick together. 7/8
I know not everyone feels this way. I am not trying to cause division, myself. I am trying to bring people together.

There is a real human being behind this account and I already know many people disagree. If you're about to verbally abuse me, please don't. 8/8 #SundayThoughts
