Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

As Nixon's approval ratings fell, support for impeachment was rising more gradually, reaching solid majority support by early August 1974. That was right in the midst of the crucial two-week period when the Supreme Court ordered Nixon to turn over the White House tapes, the House Judiciary Committee voted to approve three articles of impeachment and Nixon released the transcript of what became known as the "smoking gun" tape, which showed that he had helped orchestrate the cover-up.

Yes, but it's too early to actually vote on impeachment - that should be done after months of investigations, while the House has powers of subpoenas and can investigate all kinds of Trump crime family crimes, from financial self-dealings to electoral to political and executive abuses of power and coverups.

He needs to be actually impeached about a year from now. If he is impeached too early, he'll be quickly acquitted by the Senate Kangaroo Court and claim "exoneration" and at that point there will be no "checks" and no "balances" on his malfeasance. After quick impeachment and quick acquittal he is home-free and unconstrained because there will be no second chances for investigations..

I think he is actually already trying to and will keep trying to bait Democrats to impeach him as soon as possible, by not complying with demands for documents and witnesses, and be more and more outrageous, to force their hand. They should not let him off the hook that easy.

I've noticed that his spawn have been noticably abscent in the last few weeks... makes me wonder.

Fat Nixon wants Pelosi to vote for one reason only...to go on Fox and Friends and whine about how she voted without a full inquiry.

He knows the investigation is his enemy. The longer it goes, the more his corruption comes to light, the more the demand for his impeachment will grow.

He is playing a dangerous game obstructing Congress, but it is the last card he has left.
