I have been struggling with deep discouragement over the unlikely prospect of a successful impeachment and removal of the president. What’s to do?
Trump and his loyal House and Senate leaders have built an immovable blind base of support, promoted a blatant misinformation campaign, and fomented anger and civil unrest on behalf of a supposedly poor victim president. Against all precedent and outside of any moral and constitutional bounds, Senator McConnell and the White House are coordinating a Senate impeachment trial that is predicted to be a quick acquittal or maybe even something less.
The hilarity of the morning Trump news hour has become deadly serious for me. I can barely tune in to watch as the nation crumples under the threat of McConnell’s Senate control.
Discouragement is real, and our republic is surely in danger. It seems at times like there’s nothing we can do. Or can we?
We are, after all, THE PEOPLE.

There come moments that are serious enough that we have to stop, take a deep breath, and be willing to say, that’s wrong.” Also below, watch Maddow lay out Mueller’s “road map” to impeachment. – R.S.]
