“We are not going to rule it out or in,” Nadler tells TIME.  “If our duty is to do it, we will do it.  If it’s not, we won’t.  Impeachment is not a punishment.  It is not a political act to say we think it’s a good idea to get rid of the President.  Impeachment is a defense of the Constitution, a defense of liberty.  It’s a very blunt sword that should only be drawn if absolutely necessary.  But it may be.”
  —  Representative Jerry Nadler
From an article written by: Molly Ball (with reporting by: Alana Abramson, Brian Bennett and Philip Elliott)
The article is titled: “The Path To Impeachment
The article appears in Time Magazine, dtd: 25 March 2019

“I think that in this era, where people are really hungry for someone that they can trust and a team they can trust, that it’s just something they sense in their gut,” Muir says.  “And we go out there and try to earn that trust every single night.  And we’re not perfect.  One of the great gifts of this job is that you can go out the next night and give it your best shot again.  But we never forget that we’re reporting to a divided country.”
The challenge, he says, when “half the country is saying give the guy a break and the other half of the country is still saying how on earth could this happen and how much longer will it last,” is to hear both sides without being identified with either.  “We do this balancing act every night of trying to signal to an audience we hear you, we’re asking questions for you.”

Many of my “liberal” friends turned fascist overnight and actually believed the bullshit the military was pushing.  There is something very interesting about becoming a fascist.  It turns you instantly into a dumbass.  The same educated people who’d traveled the world and called for freedom and liberalism and opposed the fascist agenda of the Islamists had now turned into what they were attacking for the past couple of years.
