Today is the day for all you political nerds out there. Were I to completely detach from all emotion of the current proceedings and climate, today would still be an interesting day. Foremost at the front of it, is the fact that even now, today, nobody actually knows what’s going to happen.
McConnels rules are out and they’re, well, not unexpected, but we still don’t know if this is going to be dismissed, if we’re going to get witnesses (important or unimportant ones alike), what Roberts is going to do, or even if the freaking evidence will be allowed. It’s actually pretty nuts to be blundering straight into this without the vaguest sense of what will happen. Will we get another dramatic thumbs down moment? Will Trump have every Democrat arrested? Will we see if McConnels head can retract fully into its shell? Will C-SPAN even get to watch?
The one thing we do know is that unless something truly huge explodes over the next week or two, Trump will remain President. I don’t know what truly huge could be at this point, as we have him on tape actively asking foreign governments to investigate his rivals, but there it is.
So buckle up boys and girls. It’s gonna be a ride!
