People like ed (apart from his political opinions) presumably have antiaircraft guns in their backyards…

Castro says Dems will restart Russia probe if they win back the House
The Hill
A member of the House Intelligence Committee says that Democrats plan to quickly reopen the panel's Russia probe should the party take back control of the House in November.

“Probably the one that would get going right away is a thorough investigation into Russia and their interference,” Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) told Hill.TV co-host Krystal Ball on Tuesday when asked what Democrats would prioritize if they regain a majority in the House in the fall.

Republicans on the Intelligence Committee shut down the panel's contentious Russia probe in March, releasing a report finding no collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

Democrats have long argued that the probe was ended prematurely, and have pushed for the panel to interview additional witnesses and review documents to verify witness testimonies.

What did I tell you in that other thread?

The Blue Wave TM (OH YES IT IS) == mandate for impeachment. 8)

Why Democrats Must Impeach the President
The New York Times
On Tuesday, voters across the country demanded accountability in government, insisting their elected representatives not just talk a good game but act in the interests of the American people.

Nationwide, Democrats received 7 percent more votes than Republicans — about three million — in an election that saw a higher percentage of voters than any midterm since 1966. Those voters flipped seven governorships and 367 state legislative seats to Democrats, giving them majorities in seven more state chambers. Most important, voters ended Donald Trump and his Republican enablers’ free rein in Washington by flipping the House.

No need really.

The data point is that it's the New York Times and not merely Maxine screaming again that Trump's momma is unconstitutional.

Is that an Op-Ed or an editorial?

They run a lot of Op-Eds that are the opinions of their respective authors, but not necessarily the official position of the paper itself.

It's an OpEd of course, but the NYT does not publish any old body.

The "official position" isn't the point.

Being in the NYT == respectability in a way that being a member of congress does not.

It is understood that a CNN poll as reported by National Review is not evidences of anything really.

However, for your reading pleasure the following snippet. 8)

https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/c ... peachment/
CNN finds that 42 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, but only 37 percent think there is enough evidence to begin impeachment hearings. I’d love to see a focus group with members of that 5 percent.

Long rant followed by long thread over by DU:

The debate about impeachment is over. It's now a matter of survival.
https://www.democraticunderground.com/100211468343

OP teaser:
Trump must be removed from office because of national security issues as soon as possible. Trump has become a major national security threat. He has become a threat to the world. We are in great danger. The number one duty of congress is to protect the American people. If we do not impeach Trump and instead wait two years to vote him out it may be too late. There is also a chance he could win in two years

...
Further down:
What scares me is the apathy, the ignorance, the lack of urgency from the people.

Nancy Pelosi says impeachment or even indictment of President Trump open questions
With Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives as the 116th Congress convenes Thursday, incoming Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leaving the door open to the possible impeachment and even indictment of President Donald Trump.

"Many Democrats are talking about impeachment. You've said it would be sad and divisive for the country to pursue impeachment. Are you willing to rule it out?" NBC "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie asked in an interview with Pelosi that aired Thursday morning.

"We have to wait and see what happens with the Mueller report," Pelosi said, referring to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. "We shouldn't be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn't avoid impeachment for a political reason. So we'll just have to see how it comes," Pelosi responded.
Oh never mind then....Just to recall though that...
In the past Pelosi has been more conclusive, saying over the summer that impeachment was "off the table" and there's not enough to "focus on that." But Pelosi has also repeatedly said whether to pursue impeachment shouldn't be decided on or ruled out based on "political reasons."
:Popcorn:
Then Skank Of America could start in...

TOP JUDICIARY DEMS INTRODUCE BIPARTISAN SPECIAL COUNSEL INDEPENDENCE AND INTEGRITY ACT

The Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act codifies an existing Department of Justice regulation providing that a special counsel may be removed only for misconduct, dereliction of duty, incapacity, conflict of interest, or other good cause. It also requires written notice to a special counsel outlining the reasons for removal and provides a procedure that allows a special counsel to challenge his or her removal in court.

Reps. Nadler, Jackson Lee and Cohen today released the following joint statement upon introduction of the legislation:

“For the last two years, House Republican leadership sat idly by, and often joined in, as President Trump attempted more than once to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and launched serious attacks on senior Department of Justice officials in an effort to end the Russia investigation. Now that Trump has fired Attorney General Sessions and removed Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein from overseeing the investigation, we are faced with an acting Attorney General whose intentions are questionable.

“As the Special Counsel announces new indictments and guilty pleas from Trump’s closest allies and associates, it’s clear that the threat to the Mueller investigation will only grow stronger. Democrats and Republicans in Congress have mentioned their support for the inquiry to continue unimpeded. Now is the time for Congress to finally act and pass this legislation to protect the integrity of the Special Counsel’s investigation and the rule of law.”
