It's not going to be easy. You all know why. The best way to beat him is by hammering the fact that he's bad for America and getting new voters motivated. If we sit back and try to go toe to toe with him armed with policy and facts he'll slaughter whoever the dems nominate.

If you don't impeach, you are saying that everything he's done is not impeachable. That sets a really bad precedent IMO. I think they have to do it because it's the right thing to do. I respect the other opinion but I really hope they go forward with it, success or no.

They are guaranteed to fail. He would become a martyr for Republicans. Have him lose the election in a bigly way and get thrown out the old fashioned way. America will have said “Take a hike Trump!” When he’s gone I won’t care about the official reason, just that he’s gone.

There are Republicans with a soul who also know what time it is.

Sort of unrelated but, I didn’t want to make a new thread. We are worried about Russia meddling in our elections. Right now thousands are protesting in Moscow over economic conditions and lack of election choices etc. Putin has his own problems at home.

Now Putin is threatening Google for reporting on the “illegal” protests.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s state communications watchdog has asked Google (GOOGL.O) to stop advertising “illegal mass events” on its YouTube video platform, it said on Sunday.

Just keep in mind, Russia and China/HK are just slightly further down the track than the US with Trump in the White House. His re-election will bring those same scenes stateside.

There's an interesting story going on in Italy where their conservative party has been exposed as having colluded and been interfered with by Russia and Putin. A recording came out where they were discussing how to funnel longer from Russia to the conservative party. Many similarities to the US GOP situation.

I was missing the last digit.

Up to 60,000 people reportedly gathered in the rain to demand fair elections.

Many Muscovites are unhappy that opposition candidates have been banned from running in municipal elections in September, but anger has increased after apparent incidences of police brutality in previous weeks.

Opposition politician, Lyubov Sobol, an ally of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, was detained by police ahead of the protest.
Around 600 people were arrested after an unauthorised protest last weekend, amid reports of police violence. More than 1,000 were detained the week before.

PARIS - France and Germany on Sunday condemned a Russian police crackdown on a banned opposition rally that saw hundreds detained, with Paris criticizing an "excessive use of force" after a second weekend of protests over the exclusion of opposition candidates from local Moscow polls next month.

Berlin said the police action on Saturday "violated" Russia's international obligations and undermines the right to fair elections in the country.

A French foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement that Paris "insists on freedom of expression in all its forms, including that of demonstrating peacefully and taking part in free and transparent elections."

Berlin condemned "the repeated interference in the guaranteed right to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression" which "violates Russia's international obligations and strongly questions the right to free and fair elections".
