To set the plate this second week of impeachment proceedings against our pathetic POTUS, I highly recommend reading George Clancy's novel - A Clear and Present Danger.
The movie adaptation came out in 1994.
Fiction, however, has trumped Clancy's wild imagination as Trump's administration has been caught red-handed protecting Trump, after he sought political dirt on former vice president, Joe Biden.
This is real world; The president of the United States was caught bullying our ally Ukraine to dig up dirt on Trump's main political opponent for the 2020 election.
But Trump didn't conspire alone.
We're starting to find out the identities of some of his key conspirators. Trump's attack dog Rudy Giuliani leads the pack.
Attorney General, William Barr, Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and vice president, Mike Pence, are intertwined in the conspiracy to intimidate Ukraine's leader.
It's just the tip of the iceberg. Watch what happens this week. The majority of Americans say an impeachment inquiry into Trump is necessary, according to CBS poll yesterday.
Those numbers are mounting after just one week of Trump and minions being exposed by a whistleblower, and the country being informed of what was happening.
Critics say things are happening too fast. I'd say they're not happening fast enough. This is a matter of our nation's security.
"Urgent and credible," we must not forget the whistleblower's warning. Why should we wait for more crimes to unfold before our eyes in real time?
There's a new Trump train rattling down the tracks to impeachment, and I'm betting more Americans get aboard before the articles of impeachment are formally voted on in The House.
Not even the great thriller writer, Tom Clancy, could have come up with a bigger shocker than this near fall of American democracy.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
