I'm enjoying my coffee this morning and a wake-and-bake buzz.
In the background, the airwaves are buzzing with the talk of impeaching Trump after the release of the redacted Mueller report.
Social media activism...for impeachment
Trending on Twitter: Republicans For Impeachment

So what happens next?
If (and that's a big IF) the House goes with impeachment proceedings, their efforts will amount to nothing - if at least 20 Republicans in the Senate don't agree Trump should be impeached.
What's More Likely To Happen...
The Democrats will follow the path Mueller laid out for obstruction of justice. They'll hold off on impeachment while the House committees investigate Trump and minions to add to their impressive array of crimes.
If their further research shows more evidence of deep corruption (including abusing his presidential powers) they'll likely take a run at impeachment later this year.
One caveat: The polling numbers will have to show a sharp upswing of voters wanting Trump to be impeached, or that will take the steam out of the effort.
In the end however, there's a need for 20 patriotic GOP senators who'll put their country before the authoritarian ape currently residing in the Oval office.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
