'McConnell is negotiating with Schumer to set Senate trial rules; you are withholding the Impeachment Resolution until an impartial proceeding is assured. No agreement with McConnell’s name on it can be trusted; he will game the system as he did in the Garland episode.

Withholding it is the only way to finesse McConnell, to prevent a sham trial. No one expects Trump to be convicted, because McConnell has the votes for a finding of innocence. But the case for conviction will gather strength as Trump’s stonewalling of evidence crumbles in one court decision after another. You need to let this happen, Madam Speaker.

So take a cue from the Majority Leader: sit on the Impeachment Resolution until you get an open-and-shut case to convict the president and remove him from office. This will take some time; you might have to remain sitting for say, 293 days, but there is no legal barrier.'

This quick link refers to the article by Richard Behan, which originally appeared in the American Tribune.


Richard is a retired dean and professor of forestry (Ph.D, UC Berkeley, 1971). His specialty was natural resource and public lands policy.


He is the author of Plundered Promise: Capitalism, Politics, and the Fate of the Federal Lands, (Island Press, 2001), which criticized the dominance of corporate enterprise in fashioning public policyacross the spectrum of issues, not just public lands and resources.


That concern is still central in his thinking, and since the book he has written 50-some essays for internet publication, mostly during the Bush years, and a 117 page electronic book, The Fraudulent War: the Facts About the Bush Administration's "War on Terror."


He sat out most of the Obama years in disappointment, but was electrified by the Sanders candidacy and have taken to the keyboard once more.
