Has Trump's 'Day of Reckoning' Finally Arrived?

Ukrainian President (left), Volodymyr Zelensky, was concerned when the promised aid - $250,000 million - didn't come despite Congress giving it the green light.

                                       Good Day World!

The earth shifted slightly 48-hours ago, and it had nothing to do with Global Warming.

Impeachment is in the air this fall as Congress confronts the biggest scandal in American history... 

A president that has been abusing laws - often right out in front of everyone - and who also has no trouble going to a foreign country to collect dirt on his political opponents.

The nation is facing a Constitutional crisis with a president's overwhelming abuse of power that everyone can see... but the Republican Party.

When the whistleblower story broke the response was crickets from Republicans in the House, and Senate. Still is. Lawmakers have been seen running through Capitol Hill to avoid reporters questions about the whistleblower's report.

Trump's most loyal minions at Fox, and his crazy aging attack-dog, Rudy Giuliani, quickly jumped to Trump's defense with the usual response; divert-lie-divert-deny-discredit-lie...

This scandal playbook is not going to work this time, because there's a gathering juggernaut of corruption charges. They're led off with Trump's latest attempt to hurt his political opponent by making a deal with a foreign leader.

Trump reportedly asked the new president of the Ukraine to open corruption charges against Joe Biden, and his son Hunter, while dangling foreign aid from the U.S. to the Ukraine like a carrot.

As soon as the Democrats can verify the accusations against Trump by viewing the mystery whistleblower's charges, the gloves should come off and Nancy Pelosi needs to formally call for an impeachment hearing. If she doesn't, this scandal will end up like the rest - buried in the courts for years.

If what Trump has done here, once again trying to collude with a foreign government (like last time with the Russians in 2016) to get dirt on his political enemies isn't enough to tip the scales and spur Congress to act... then nothing ever will!

The American people are watching history unfold as the president of the United States acts of corruption become clearer by the day at home, and abroad.

This is the moment that should be seized by the Democrats if they are serious about stopping the corrosion and damage to our nation and democracy.

Come Monday, I expect impeachment to be on the table as more information comes in - and, it will.

On Sunday morning, the House Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said impeachment "may be the only remedy" to Trump's refusal to make public the whistleblower's complaint.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
