Not Listening! Not Listening!

Representative Adam Schiff, (D-CA), Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, is up with a terribly, terribly earnest video, which Nancy Pelosi retweeted, telling us about Russian meddling in our election and bills the House has passed to address the problem.

He calls on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to pass the “bipartisan” bills.

Lovely. Who gives a shit? Watch if you want to, but the Democratic leadership in the House has zero credibility until they announce that they are impeaching Donald Trump. As of now, there is no reason to think that Republicans in the Senate would vote to remove him. But we don’t know what evidence an impeachment investigation in the House would turn up, or what impact that investigation would have on public opinion.

There’s only one way to find out. Republicans have wielded more power than they deserve by tending to the every idiotic whim of their base. The Democrats should learn the lesson and start tending to the smart, considered ideas of their base, including impeaching Donald Trump.

Until they impeach, I’m not listening.
