I am posting this here for those who may not read the Impeachment, Conviction and 25th Amendment thread.  This thread has become the "All things Trump" thread.

The below column by Jennifer Rubin was printed May 15, but I believe it is still accurate to the impeachment question.  Basically, she is saying what I have been advocating.  The Dems need to build a much stronger case and follow due process (for lack of a better term) before rushing to impeachment.  She outlines what that entails.

The flip side of this argument is that impeachment hearings are just that ... hearings.  They don't necessarily lead to an impeachment vote but one thing they do do is give Congress a legitimate legal case for their subpoenas.

Everybody, including me, thought that when the 40 Million Dollar Mueller Report was released with No Collusion and No Obstruction (of a crime caused by others), that was the end. But no, the Democrats want to keep it going in an effort to help them in 2020. Bad for the Country!

Leonard Leo’s behind-the-scenes campaign to remake the nation’s courts
Few people outside government have more influence over judicial appointments than Leonard Leo, an unofficial adviser to President Trump who has helped conservative nonprofits raise $250 million from mostly undisclosed donors to promote conservative judges and causes.

George Conway Retweeted Steve Holland

Quick, fact check: Thanks to assets forfeited by Paul Manafort worth approximately $42-$46 million, the Mueller investigation actually turned a *profit*.

In contrast, according to @svdate, Trump’s golf outings have cost taxpayers over $102 million.

President Trump just warned that if the House Democrats impeach him for all the substantial wrong he’s done, then some hypothetical House Republicans might impeach a future Democratic president over something meaningless.

Like, I don’t know, lying about oral sex or something.

DURBIN: “High drama in the cabinet room. We were all invited, dem leaders, for the follow-up meeting on infrastructure, everyone showed up, sat in their chairs, the President walked in the room and announced he was not going to go forward with the meeting, he was cancelling it.”

DURBIN continues about the WH mtg on infrastructure: “(Trump) objected to the continued investigation of obstruction of justice, he said he cooperated and gave his side of the story, as we’ve heard before.” “I don’t know where this leaves us as a nation,” Durbin said.

Durbin says the entire meeting lasted “no more than 5 minutes.”

After he left Pelosi said a few words of the importance of the meeting and doing infrastructure, he says.

Trump on his meeting with Pelosi and Schumer: "I walked into the room and I told Senator Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, I want to do infrastructure...I'd be really good at it...but you know what? You can't do it under these circumstances, So get these phony investigations over with..."

Now don’t get me wrong—whatever the cost, we’re better off with Trump out there cheating on the links than we are having him at his desk watching TV and pretending to be president.
