now that the house has done their thing I hope the senate can manage to follow through because this is not a situation where a miss is okay. really.

@djsundog its just gonna depend on what McConnell wants to do. if he wants to get the votes, they'll have them and if he doesn't, they won't 🤷

@Taweret @djsundog He's not calling a session, nothing is happening.

re: uspol 

@ieure @Taweret nothing's happening quickly, but that doesn't preclude things happening annoying slowly

@djsundog @Taweret Nothing is happening: pbs.org/newshour/politics/mcco

Which means Trump will remain in power until Biden is inaugurated & likely issue a slew of corrupt pardons before then & god knows what else.

And it's probably not constitutional to convict a non-sitting president.

re: uspol 

@ieure @Taweret I dunno about that, since they've held impeachments against non-sitting cabinet members, but I guess time will tell. I'm not giving up hope on him reaping some significant consequences just yet.

re: uspol 

@djsundog @Taweret Yeah, there are going to be consequences. Unfortunately, Dems slow-walking it & Lich McConnell being Lich McConnell mean We The People will also be suffering the consequences of him retaining power in this interregnum.

The Democratic senate will, but the Republican senate probably isn't amazingly keen to impeach their pet Frankenstein's Mobster who probably, and completely unrelatedly, happens to know not just all their crimes but also all their families' home addresses.
