Opinion|Democrats are speeding the defeat of the impeachment

1. Speed

Why the rush? The Democratic Party, is now the House Judiciary Committee hearings, it seems the intent of forcing an impeachment vote before Christmas. However, moving too quickly risks, ignoring new evidence that may arise, there is no pressure on the key to prove, and/or flip the record, let the story’s momentum dead in the holidays and into the King’s hands.

In its hundred-page report, the House Intelligence Committee, makes a strong case to move quickly, noting that given”threats of further the President’s attempt to seek foreign intervention in our next election, we can’t wait to make recommendations until our efforts to obtain additional testimony and documents wind their way through the courts.”

However, despite the overwhelming evidence report, the current dash looks more like panic than confidence. Some Democrats worry the hearings so far have failed to move public opinion seems to be eager to put it behind them.

In their haste, the House Democrats did not seek to enforce the court order against the managers have to acquiesce Trump’s efforts to impede the probe. The column to abandon the summons, including the acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney; his assistant Robert Blair; the National Security Council lawyer John Eisenberg;Michael Ellis, Eisenberg Deputy; State Council’s lawyers T. Ulrich Brechbuhl;Brian McCormack, former chief of staff to Energy Secretary Rick Perry; and officials from the Office of management and budget. They also did not try to enforce the subpoena for important documents to other officials or even try to obtain the testimony of Perry, State Secretary, Mike Pompeo, or the Minister of defence the horses moth.

They have not summoned a former national security adviser John Bolton, he has been very clear that he knows Many On the whole Ukraine deal. Here, the Democrats may actually keep more powerful card than they think. The decision by a Federal judge rejected the government’s request, the former White House legal counsel Don McGahn has”absolute immunity”suggests that the House might win those summons to fight in court. So why not let the case play out a bit longer?

But, perhaps most importantly, the rush to the vote ignores the fact that speed is Donald Trump Friends.

Trump count in the dizzying,dazzling the circulation of the news, anger and disinformation operations by destruction of the story before they are completely absorbed, or into the environment.

Blink and you will miss them in the cage, the”scum”of the G-7 and Dora”send her back,”he fraudulent basis. Remember the ACE is planned to invite the Taliban to Camp David on the eve of 9/11? Week, because he gave the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan the green light to the invasion of Syria?

The story would once have dominated the public consciousness for several weeks, now can disappear in less than a single news cycle. Friday of each week, and even those of us who follow the news for a living have a difficult time remembering that the story has consumed our attention on Monday.

The same speed by suitable for impeachment. When there is no Ambassador Bill Taylor to testify? Two months ago? You can remember the key information from his testimony? Who did Rudy Giuliani calls when he is trying to have Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch fired? What exactly is his relationship with indicted businessman Lev Panas? They tried to get Ukraine former Prosecutor fired, and why?

Trump rely on this pace, we know that he can be the focus from one issue to another of a solar Eclipse most embarrassing story there is another embarrassed by the tweet. Trump, a dozen scandals more vulnerable to one or two and the flood of new provocations within angry, but dispersed and exhaust.

At this pace, the quick vote and the Senate acquitted in January may be forgotten possible. This is the world we live in.

All values in the slow down, and let the key evidence scattered in to the public. Let the public catch up. Our story marinate a period of time. Tell them over and over again. Pause and focus on the key elements. Repetition, amplification and the environment is your friend.

It is also possible, that new and conclusive facts will emerge during this period through the report. They do not help much, if they arrive after the Senate vote.

This brings us to the second threat:

2. Squirrel

Must not be distracted by trivia, circus and squirrel!

ACE is the master of heart and the media almost always need bait. However, Democrats need to keep the focus on the main event: the abuse of power and obstruction.

The other is juggling. There will be many: performances, tweet, vote, conspiracy theory. Even the stories about the former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

GOP members on the Judiciary Committee have indicated they will try to beclown the process, but the pressure to chase the squirrels also come from Trump’s criticism. There is a real danger here, because there are many legitimate potential main event between interspersed with performances of: the remuneration of the terms, Trump’s taxes, his treatment of women, his chronic lies and racism. Inevitably there will be pressure: why not pursue them?

All of the squirrels. And the squirrel will almost always leave.

3. Bird droppings

Impeachment, of course, is a solemn constitutional process, which process should Center on facts, evidence and facts. On the contrary, we are getting a Blizzard of bat dung.

“A lot of Republicans,” The Washington Post The report”advancing the debunked claims about Ukraine as they defend the President of the king from a possible impeachment, to accept Russian fuel conspiracy theories that seek to cast blame on the Kiev equivalent of Moscow interference in the 2016 U.S. elections”.

In other words, the GOP and its media allies are taking what a former White House official Fiona Hill described as”a fictitious person described has been implemented and disseminated by the Russian security services.”

This willingness to accept the bat shit crazy conspiracy theory that will test the sanity of the Democratic Party and voters alike. Unfortunately, the chief provider of the looniest theory is not Louisiana Senator John F. Kennedy(who was, before he was against before he was for it)or even the Representatives Devin Nunez—this is the United States the President himself continue to peddle the bizarre story on the Ukraine, a technology company called him and the hack of the DNC.

“This is not just a conspiracy theory,”Trump’s former national security adviser Tom Bossert, complained that”this is completely debunked.”

“It sticks in his mind when he heard over and over again, and for the sake of clarity I just want to reiterate that it has no validity,”Bossert said.

It is important to recognize this point Trumpian exercise in fabulism and gaslighting is not to convince the public of the ACE is innocent, but confused and fuzzy, and want to let the public tune out and turn away.

Hannah Arendt, philosopher and political theory Home, explain the process and results:

“The result of a consistent and total substitution of lies for factual truth is not the lie will now accept the truth, and the truth will slander as a lie,”she wrote,”but in this sense, we take our bearings in the real world—and the category of truth and falsehood is among the mental means to this end is to destroy.”

If this is not a true and real danger of the Republic, what is it?
