If Trump wins and the Dems turn the Senate, things would get really interesting. Highly unlikely as it seems Trump is dragging down the rest of the ballot.

James Comey (remember him?) is due to testify before Graham's Senate Judiciary Committee on Sept 30.

I'm not so sure its a wise move for Graham to have him in just weeks before the Election. Like, Jimmy Boy has a bit of a history of doing things that affect elections... Just sayin'...

Maybe Redemption is on Jimmy's mind???

Look upon that as Plan C... If Trump wins and Dems take the Senate and retain the House, Impeachment No. 2 by August 2021.

This is a rare occasion (in politics at least) where I am in total agreement with you on both counts.

He persists the same reason most do I guess, power and greed. I give the devil his due, but when he is gone everyone will be better off.

I wonder will this make the republicans think twice about going for a new Trump in the future. I think it really hurts them in Congress. It makes winning blue states nearly impossible and winning light red states much harder.

Susan Collins had nowhere to go. Attacking Trump would have lost her the race as his base would abandon her and not ditching him makes it impossible to pick up light blues and even some light reds.

Impeachment 2: Electric boogaloo.

Seriously though, losing the senate along with a Dem house would mean curtains for Trump. Can't magine what charade might happen if that were to happen

That is the day after the 1st debate - Clearly an attempt to shift the news narrative on the day after the debate.

It might or might not work.

No doubt it will provide Fox with a few "clips" of some GOP Senator launching some diatribe about the "Witchhunt".

But as you say will be interesting if Comey decides that the gloves are off and just goes for it.

Nah the benefits to them putting forward a competent politician who can act trumpian for the base far outweigh the costs, control of the SC and jurisprudence for multiple generations for one thing.

I've heard a few people say that the danger is what happens when the GOP find a 'competent' Trump. Surely a very large component of what makes Trump what he is, IS his incompetence. His stupidity is an essential ingredient in his makeup. It lets him get away with what he gets away with because it is pretty much impossible to engage him on any sort of intellectual level. Once a politician engages on an intellectual level, they are there for the taking.

Short of finding someone smart who is able to act like Trump 100% of the time without breaking character, 'Competent Trump' is an oxymoron.

All they have to do is follow the blueprint of how he carries on publicly, and for his audience and tweak it so that he can actually make deals behind the scenes. Have an actual plan that goes beyond "will I look good here, was I strong?" "Is it ever enough orange make-up?"

A competent politician playing the role of the idiot is well within their ability. Look at Boris.

Politically its going to be very interesting to see in which fashion will Trump come down on him now, he cant be too harsh as that sort blows his "law and order" message out of the water (tho its already sinking due to all the holes in the hull)

This one's easy. They'll do nothing. Some noise and bluster and I'm sure an investigation scheduled for late November/December if anyone bothers to look.

He's already tweeted trying to claim that China is the bigger threat because of mail-in voting blah blah blah

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/...49921173762049

And as you can see , Tweeter have his it with a "Learn how Mail-in voting is safe and secure" warning.

Out with somebody else's chequebook. The only way he solves his problems...

Too little to late, given his disgusting remarks previously?

Or will this win voters over?
