Trump Has Been Impeached By The US House Of Representatives. Now what...?
It’s been a long week. The House voted to approve a $1.4 trillion spending deal. Then it voted to impeach President Trump. Then it passed a new North American trade agreement. Then we had a Democratic debate. And now it seems all that’s left before Christmas is the shouting.

My thoughts on this news
As I stated in my last post, that this would play out similar to how the Clinton impeachment proceeded and so far it has. Let is all congratulate Trump on being the 3rd President in US history to be impeached.
Now the next step is for the House to send the impeachment bill to the Senate so a trial can begin. This is where the uncertainty starts. Since Mitch McConnell and the Republicans control the Senate it is not even clear if they want to have any kind of trial. From their actions so far it seems like they want to get this over with as quick as possible, simply say Trump did nothing wrong and is innocent.
Because of the Republican's corrupt behavior of not even wanting to conduct a proper trial, Nancy Pelosi has delayed sending the impeachment bill to the Senate until an agreement is made on what the process for the trial will be. Some say this is a good tactic some say it is not, some are even saying she is purposely delaying the process to sabotage Elizaeth Warren's and Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign, since they will have to leave the campaign close to election time to participate in the Senate impeachment trial.
I have no clue if what Nancy is doing is a good strategy nor what she is thinking. I think at her age she is just trying to be remembered as a good politician in the history books. It will be interesting to see what the Senate does, one thing is for sure, the American people will finally see how corrupt the Republican party is and all they care about is money and power.
Even though I am not sure how this impeachment trial will end, I know one thing, 2020 is going to be a crazy year. There is so much shit going on politically, possible wars, climate change, we are living in crazy time for sure. Happy New Year! :)
