Pelosi’s Patient Purpose

There is not going to be a quick and meaningless trial in the Senate. Donald J. Trump has been impeached for abuse of power and obstructing Congress. So, these are charges that can only be levied against a POTUS.
Judges can be impeached for malfeasance, but only those who “enjoy” a lifetime appointment. Others can, of course, be removed via election or, in some states, a finding of incompetence by a Governor. That is a significant difference.
