Jerrold Nadler: oh btw, we’ve started the impeachment process

“We are investigating all the evidence, gathering the evidence,” Nadler added. “And we will [at the] conclusion of this — hopefully by the end of the year — vote to vote articles of impeachment to the House floor. Or we won’t. That’s a decision that we’ll have to make. But that’s exactly the process we’re in right now.”

That’s why the apparent actions can look the same under impeachment or not. No banner, no every week live telecast. Just the slow march that may or may not result in the House voting on it later.

He could do a better job of explaining it simply to folks. 'We're piling up evidence for a House impeachment vote.' would sound nice.

Gotta get to 218 or better, otherwise impeachment doesn't come up for a vote. With witnesses and documents, they need to build a narrative that can get those votes from Democrats in "moderate" districts (like several that voted for Trump in 2016 but for a Democrat for the district House seat in 2018).

Why anyone thinks impeachment will get him out of office is beyond me. That said, there may be worse crimes than obstruction and abuse of power. If the financial information leads to what some in congress have alluded to, that is what Trump needs to worry about and why he was attacking Maxine Waters.

If the House votes to impeach it won't be to get rid of him, given that they know they can't.

I suspect the idea is to slow the process enough so that the actual impact of anything impeachment-related doesn't have time to be spun and de-fanged before the general election season is underway. The Dems want to be able to keep this stuff in the press as far into the fall as possible, and ending that quickly with a failed impeachment is not going to do it. They're going to be like the GOP was with Benghazi - drag and drag and drag and drag and drag and drag and drag..........

I don't know or care whether Impeachment itself is the end result. But there is MORE than enough facts in the Mueller report to charge a working Congress to do its oversight job. Investigate.

Orange Man cannot hide from himself - there's no way he isn't lining his pockets while President. We may not be able to bring him down due to politics, but we CAN keep his hands out of our cookie jar when he leaves office.

Hes saying what he was allowed to say. That's enough.
