I think the writing is on the wall now.

Courtesy of The Hill:

A large majority of Democrats support impeaching President Trump following the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, though the prospect remains unpopular overall.

A new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll released Wednesday shows that 70 percent of Democratic respondents supported impeaching Trump in the wake the Mueller report’s findings, compared to only 40 percent of independents and 5 percent of Republicans. About 39 percent of respondents overall support impeaching Trump.

The poll comes as House Democrats and 2020 presidential candidates grapple with the prospect of attempting to remove the president, which could excite the Democratic base but alienate independents and Trump voters the party hopes to flip next year.

I don’t think we should waste our time trying to woo Trump voters. 

Anybody who responds positively to xenophobia and racism is lost to us. 

We need to focus on turning out our base and expanding it to include those who may not have wanted to support Hillary but are typically down with most of the policies put forward by the Dems. 

I think impeachment proceedings will help, rather than hurt that.

    This criminal needs to be punished and set an example for those to come, if he gets away with it, someone in the future (like his corrupt son) will have no qualms about doing worse.

    After all the damage he has done to our country, I can’t even imagine what havoc he will do if re-elected.

    Heck those moron republicans want to impeach Hillary and she isn’t even in office, but dictator donnie can go free..I don’t think so.

    Also read that traitor trump and his side kick lying rudi have already told Barr to investigate not only Hillary, but Biden.

    66Six legal experts said that regardless of who owns those units, the fact that Trump was collecting fees for managing the building while foreign governments were paying to live there represents a potential breach of the emoluments clause.

    The 1982 Foreign Missions Act requires foreign governments to get State Department clearance for any purchase, lease, sale, or other use of a property in the United States. Through the Freedom of Information Act, Reuters obtained diplomatic notes sent to the agency under this requirement from early 2015 until late 2017.

    “caught off guard by Democrats this week, may have accidentally given the green light for Robert Mueller to hand over Donald Trump’s tax returns to Congress.

    During a quick final round of questions during his testimony on Wednesday, Sen. Amy Klobuchar got Barr on the record saying she is free to request the president’s financial documents and any other underlying evidence connected to the special counsel investigation. Democrats are starting to bypass William Barr

    Sen. Klobuchar’s letter to Bob Mueller on Thursday isn’t the only example of Democrats working directly with Robert Mueller. House Democrats, too, are bypassing the corrupt attorney general.”

    Kamala Harris Fires Back At Donald Trump For Calling Her ‘Nasty’

    “His primary interest has been to obstruct justice,” the 2020 presidential candidate said. “My primary interest is to pursue justice.”

    “Nasty” is a word that leaps easily to Trump’s tongue. He shocked many during a 2016 campaign debate when he muttered while rival Hillary Clinton was speaking: “Such a nasty woman.”

    The LGBTQ community is obviously not monolithic. It has the same fault lines of race, gender, class and economics that persist in the rest of American culture.

    Why does everyone pussyfoot around trump? I just dont understand that! He is just a rich brat run amok. Nothing more or less. Did you know that they did that to Hitler too? Then it was too late to turn it off. Ah but yes, there were those who were even more sick than Hitler who took advantage of that crazy train and filled their own hate filled agenda with that lil man who was catipulted into leader of the third reich. Same shit different era. And the democrats always play nice. They give their opponent the benefit of the doubt. The republicans, out of pure desperation to meet their agenda, play as evil as possible.

    The Lucifer Effect ~ “Trump Effect.”
    “tell me why you and so many other mental health professionals are staking out the position that Donald Trump is particularly dangerous?”
    “WE can be sure of is his present hedonism—or living in the moment with no interest in either the past or future.”<{I was just thinking about that{
    "Present he*don*ists seek the novel, the different, the unusual, and thus are easily bored by the familiar and traditional. This combination of cognitive and emotional dimensions often sets them on a path of addictions—the ultimate immersion in the pleasures of the moment." "Trump’s incessant Twitter use is illuminating. Trump’s previous manifestation of sexual addiction pales in comparison to his recent Twitter use." "now more than 9 daily in 2019—as high as 60 tweets in an hour the other day!
    Totally incoherent as if he were publicly revealing he’s mentally anomalous. Many of these tweets reflect his egocentric megalomania and extreme grandiosity—a stable genius, and even more so aggrandizing the person overachieving anything he wants to but no other American politician in all history has ever been able to do"

    "Trump is tweeting more perhaps in response to his anxiety over the special counsel’s report as well as the turmoil created by all his illegal activities coming to the surface.
    Trump makes important national and international decisions without ever thinking about the future consequences. He becomes addicted to any activity that’s novel and moderately accessible, notably Trump Twitter mania. It is another of his mindless addictions. Everything he has done publicly since becoming president of the United States is part of his addiction."

    "as president of the United States, this lack of self-control is extremely dangerous for the citizens he has pledged to protect."

    "Therapists are dealing with the effects on a daily basis and are dubbing it “Trump Anxiety Disorder.”
