Did we expect the Republicans to remove Trump from office? Yes it was a slam dunk case. Yes he deserves removal. But was that ever going to happen? No. So what was the best case scenario for Dems?

Is this the best case? Like Trump said, he could shoot someone on fifth Avenue and get away with it. I believe that to be the case with this Republican Party. They would not remove him if killed someone. So what were us Democrats really hoping for? 

Doing the right thing. Setting the record straight. Trying even in the face of impossible odds.

That quote was made in 2016 in reference to how loyal his voter base is-

"You know what else they say about my people? The polls, they say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that? Where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible," Trump said.

Best case scenario for Dems was at least showing the American public a witness with direct knowledge that could corroborate and confirm the charges brought, even knowing it wouldn’t change the outcome, but would deeply affect those few swing voters. But I think the bigger damage will be done by the Republicans on the other side. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize they’re all in bed with Trump.

I’m more worried about the precedent this has now set forth. I think the Supreme Court needs to settle and implement some outlines when it comes to executive privilege and this fallacy of having absolute immunity.

Dont waste your time doing IB and find some other job where you are valued after 5-7 years of experience. I have close to 9 years of experience in IB and I decided to migrate to Canada after that. Now i am facing a common phenomenon in my job applications. Either they say i am over qualified or they say how will I bring Canadian clients. I tried to change course of my career by applying for financial analyst / FP&A role but of no success. IB doesnt teach beyond PPT / Excel. Feel depressed.

What people don't realize is Trumpism is far from over. Almost 50% of the country voted for him. Even after he is kicked out of office, he is going to sit on the sidelines, attack over the next 4 years, get his kids in office, contest elections. This is just the beginning..we all know there is no going back.
