Don Surber has a fascinating blog, uncharacteristically lengthy:
... the fix is in again. This time Republicans will vote against him and give Democrats the 67 votes they need to find the president guilty.
Official Washington wants to erase his presidency from history, and strip away his citizenship by blocking him from ever seeking office again. They want his head on a pike as a warning to others.
The plan is to hold the impeachment show trial concurrent with confirming Cabinet members and rubber-stamping his agenda.
Byron York asked, "But why should Republicans help Democrats with a kooky plan that would require voting to remove a president who is already gone?"
Answer: Because they hate Donald Trump and every one of the 75 million people who voted for him.
While I might try arguing against this scenario, I've now learned to be cautious about disagreeing with Surber. And it's true: Hatred is a deranging emotion that often blinds those in its grip to their true interests and to dangers ahead. That notion seems so far not to have crossed the mind of our Rulers, except to the extent that they think they can protect themselves by flooding DC with troops.
We shall see.
