    should make it easier for Republicans in the legislature to vote for impeachment.

    The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

    •  impeachment is voted on by the assembly. (0+ / 0-)

      since the dems own a 60-40 advantage there, they dont need any republican votes to impeach him, its the senate, which has 40 seats, where they need R votes. there are 24 demsin the senate but since one of them is the majority leader he doesn't get a vote- why that is is a question?_ so they need 4 out of 16 republicans to vote to convict to remove christie from office. once all the info and testimony is out, they should be able to get at least half of the republican votes..
