This seems like a plan.
“If you won’t let us impeach Trump, we won’t impeach him. See how you like that?”
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, the second-ranking lawmaker in the House, said Wednesday that Democrats must discuss a last-ditch gambit to delay sending articles of impeachment to the Senate and prevent the Republican controlled chamber from summarily discarding the case against President Donald Trump.
“Some think it’s a good idea. And we need to talk about it,” Hoyer said just as the House began debating articles of impeachment that charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Hoyer said Democratic colleagues have approached him in recent days, citing an op-ed by constitutional lawyer Laurence Tribe in which he calls on Democrats to delay sending impeachment articles to the Senate until McConnell agrees to run a fairer process.
So the plan is to not impeach Trump to protest their failure to impeach Trump?
The Dems have gone the full Br’er Rabbit now.
If they get any more turned around, they’ll demand that Trump stay on for a third term so they get a real whack at impeaching him.
