Madam Speaker: how many crimes must The Chosen One commit before he is held accountable?  We now add  attempted extortion of a foreign nation (Ukraine) to a lengthy list of unpunished offenses.  Purpose?  To get political dirt on a domestic rival.  Pile that on routine abuses of power, a conspiracy to collude with Russia in fixing the 2016 election, witness tampering, money laundering, tax evasion, continuous violations of the Constitution’s emoluments clause, stealing from a charitable fund, sexual assault, campaign funding violations, paying off sexual partners for their silence…and no doubt many high crimes and misdemeanors not yet revealed.

If you quibble that he hasn’t been convicted of some of these charges, I remind you that he obstructs justice almost daily to prevent their investigations and near-certain convictions.  Further clouding the picture, he has told 12,019 public lies, as of August 12, 2019 (according to The Washington Post).

Even the ever-cautious and wary Congressman Adam Schiff says we have now crossed the Rubicon.  Yes, Nancy, that’s your cue to cry havoc and let slip the dogs of impeachment on this surviving Orange Crested Thecodont from the Triassic.  Don’t play the political card that being so bold would jeopardize competitive House seats in the upcoming presidential election, which you correctly believe the Dems will win.  Sometimes you must rise above politics…say, when the Constitution is at stake.  Do the right thing, even if it is risky.

If the Constitution is worth saving, it’s worth obeying.

Surf’s up, Nancy.  Let’s hang ten*.
