Re: The big legal issue I wonder about:
My recollection (and I may be very wrong) is that LamarkNewAge is a butt hurt Bernie baby, angry about the Democratic party in that Bernie was not the candidate, and is thus not now the President.

The Bernie babies think that Bernie is some sort of a miracle worker. Just by his presence as President, all good things will happen

My impression (again, I may be very wrong) is that LamarkNewAge is acting out the "the enemy (Trump, Republicans) of my enemy (Democrats) is my friend" mentality.

No, the Democrats are not (just) politically motivated to impeach Trump. They are motivated to impeach Trump because Trump deserved impeachment.

The ones who are purely politically motivated are the Republicans, who won't impeach Trump because he is part of the Republican party, and sadly seems to control the mentality of the Republican party. They are afraid to resist the stupidity.

Liz Cheney just reached the point of "if Trump isn't going to be loyal to her, why should she remain loyal to him?".

2 years ago (and this past election?), the Republicans who showed the most spine were the ones who did not seek reelection/retired. I call them the "I'd rather quit than fight" branch of the Republican party. Oh yeah, there's that one representitive (good ol' what's his name) who went from Republican to Independent. Heck of a fight there.

Or something like that.
