So convincing Trump to declare himself the greatest president every before huffing off is their best bet atm.
    They probably shouldn't fear it right now TBH.. I mean if they get rid of him now there will be a shitstorm for a bit, but the next election is how far away? All but the most diehard people will have forgotten about it by then (ie, not enough to really do much next election).

    The mid-term house elections are next year, so there is no way the anger would die down by then.

    And while everyones' eyes are glued to the TRump shit show the GOP in the background are busy repealing regulations, defunding programs, and doing their paymasters' bidding while no one is noticing.

    The midterms are in November 2018 during which all members of Congress and a third of the Senate is up for re-election. So about 15 months from now until the election with campaigns starting considerably before that.

    Bill Clinton's impeachment took ~5 months from the Judiciary Committee voting for an impeachment investigation to the final vote in the Senate. That was after ~9 months of grand jury investigation.

    What do you think the impeachment charges would be?

    This destroys your "They were selling info to Pakistan" theory though does it? If they were spies, even with the best deal in the world they'd be spending decades in prison and who would turn themselves in for that?

    I never said they sold info to Pakistan, just that they got money for some reason.

    Considering they got 4 times as high a salary as would have been normal, even for those family members that didn't do any work, it seems they provided some kind of shady service.

    The salary thing isnt a mystery, it's just a mistatement. That was their income but they werent paid a full time salary by anyone, they were paid montly retainers by 30 senators that in aggregate added up to 4x a full time IT staffer salary. That's just the benefit of being external-contractor rather than on the payroll in a salaried position - the more senators who sign them up the higher their "salary" (which is not in fact a salary)

    Were they being overpaid? Perhaps. But also perhaps not. If each of those senators went through an external agency they'd have been paying at least that much.

    Also don't forget the Tea Party. I honestly think that was the harbinger of things to come with the base getting really really ducking angry at being fed ideology by GOP politicians who never walked the walk.

    I am not, and never have been, a man of the right. My position was on the left and is now in the centre of politics.
    I know that I'm just winding you up (because you get stuff on gender wrong in just the same way as even some of our left wing grandparents did on sexuality)

Without loyalty, endurance, or staying power, such a character is the hallmark of financial democratic politics.
    As a joke, this is in fucking poor taste. If you're being serious though, I can only wish you debilitating brain cancer.

    No joke friend. Today i was made aware that i was a right winger and thus im just embracing my true nature, as told to me by my better.
    Does wishing someone debilitating brain cancer not undermine you being an arbiter of what is in poor taste a tad?
    I think wishing brain cancer on the supporters of an ideology as hateful as your joke, while pointless and in poor taste, is still far more benign that the subject of such sentiments and their ideas.

    That comment reminds me of the recent event (German article) were a NPD (Germany's "official" (neo-)nazi party) town mayor candidate was asked*), if Arabian numbers should be banned and he answered "Hell, yes! Just wait 'til I'm elected."

    *) the question was asked by a member of the party DIE PARTEI, which is a satire party that's officially registered and on the ballots.
