they’ll eventually side with a quick dismissal

less work less chance they’ll have to say something stupid and spin mental gymnastics to argue against something that isn’t defendable and embarrass themselves

give each semi vulnerable R more chance to bullshit and fabricate why they quickly dismissed it rather than having a bunch of sound bites and bad arguments

And guess what? Rao dissented as usual
Rao, who also served in the Trump administration and also dissented from the three-judge panel's opinion, charged that when the court allowed the subpoena to go forward it "shifted the balance of power between Congress and the President and allowed a congressional committee to circumvent the careful process of impeachment."
She said that even though the House has subsequently authorized an impeachment inquiry, the committee in issuing the subpoena was not relying on impeachment power.
Did this person even went to law school? The committee always starts the impeachment through vote via judiciary. And secondly, she's saying yes they formally voted on impeachment but this subpoena was prior to that. What kind of pretzel bullshit is this. Ok Rao, here's a new subpoena under formal impeachment vote. what now?

These people are making a mockery of everything they touch.

I'm not saying it won't happen, but this is complicated by Roberts overseeing the trial. I suspect he doesn't want to be remembered as the Justice that oversaw a clown show

Just imagine how much more of a smarmy piece of shit Gym Jordan is going to look when he goes into caveman mode against Marie Yovanovitch.

Times, NBC, etc are reporting on the miller stuff, but there’s no way it’s going to break through now.

Isn't January the most crucial month? It's when you reintroduce yourself to the public when interest is all time high. The January and February debates got the highest ratings in 2016.
I do think people are being a little dramatic about the impacts, though. They aren’t going to schedule the debates against the impeachment trial, for example, so Warren and Sanders won’t miss them.

The Senate Rs are leaning towards a longer trial b/c it hurts candidates and allows Trump the chance to to give a long defense (lol)

By that same token Sara Gideon, Mark Kelly, Cal Cunningham etc just campaign in these vulnerable states with impunity while the senators they're chasing get embroiled in something that harms their reelection.
