    Quite frankly what I expect Congress to do is sit around with their fingers up their collective ass and run out the clock.
    I was merely responding to a question posed in the comment.
    What Danby proposes is not some special form of impechment called "procedural impeachment" it is regular old garden variety impeachment but with the charges being limited to the refusal to comply with a subpeona. I think that has as good a chance of being accepted by our so called opposition party in Congress as any without really giving anything up and therefore I support it, but as for expecting it or relying upon it, I don't.
