After almost ten hours of testimony in Congress today, Democrats burn the midnight oil as they ready two, possibly three Articles of Impeachment, to be presented Tuesday morning. It is a legacy defining moment for both Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump. Politico:

“Our staff has been working on this for quite a period of time,” Cicilline said. “We’re going to work throughout the night.”

Judiciary Committee aides huddled late into the evening and were prepared to hunker down for an all-nighter as they discussed the plan to unveil articles the next morning. A steady stream of lawmakers exiting the meeting indicated no final decisions had been made about which articles of impeachment would ultimately be included in the morning announcement.

The closed-door strategizing followed a day-long hearing at which House impeachment investigators presented their case against Trump, alleging that the president violated his oath of office and should be impeached for trying to pressure Ukraine to help his reelection campaign. […]

The president’s counsel refused to participate, leaving Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee to serve as Trump’s defense and attempt to undermine Democrats’ impeachment arguments. […]

Those allegations will form the basis of at least two charges against Trump — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

But some Democrats were still pushing for an obstruction of justice charge on Monday, which would likely encompass both the Ukraine scandal and Trump’s multiple alleged attempts to thwart Mueller’s probe.

Tomorrow will be a day for the history books, as Donald Trump is the third president in U.S. history to be impeached. Maybe this time it will work and the malefactor will be removed from office. You know what they say — third’s time a charm.

I know the senate won’t do the patriotic thing and remove him from office, but I do LOVE that he realizes what a stain it is on his legacy and that he can’t be pardoned. Correct me if I’m wrong there.

Today was so vicious of the Republican rants, booming, screaming, rhetoric calling out the Democrats up and down every which way, talking over the Chairman, being rude in their break-in rants, making outrageous claims that the House should be making presentations for bills and changes to help, instead of wasting time on this impeachment … what a fart faced statement because Moscow Mitch has been sitting on his hands as well as keeping a couple hundred proposals under that same stinking ass … One other thing has happened, besides being pissed because the a holes keep chasing after the whistleblower’s… Read more »

I skipped most of today, I’ll admit. At this point, it’s down to what happens after the articles of impeachment are voted upon. All of Trump’s possible reactions have been gamed out and none of them will be surprising. How the GOP proceeds is the true question mark.

I have to mute the Republicans because…sigh…I just can’t. But it’s kinda funny watching the hand waving and red faces on mute.

The senate seems to hold itself to a more solemn standard. It will be interesting to see how this plays. I’m sure Linsey won’t be able to prevent his vapors.
