  •  Removing the End Run (0+ / 0-)

    One of the inhibitions to impeachment in the House is the mantra "no Senate conviction". (Even though the political damage by impeachment alone is adequate.) The threat of actual conviction, and removal (in favor of a new official) is now great enough that beginning impeachment in the House is less politically toxic, especially to Republicans who'd see Republican senators voting to convict.

    Bipartisan impeachment was the threat that finally forced Nixon out. This message was probably explained to him by Bush Sr, then Republican Party chair. This time Sr can explain it to Jr.
