Watching the impeachment saga plays out in the most improbable way I see a certain crystalline clarity to the logic of the impeachment proceedings.
Like cut Waterford Crystal held up to the light there can be a sparkling brilliance to be seen. For the motivations are as old as recorded time itself. Michael Bloomberg (who also happens to be running for president) pledged 10 million dollars for the reelection campaigns of those who vote for impeachment. The deed has now been done, for the money. Never mind what happens next. It is no different than the worlds oldest profession.
Of course they wanted to vote to impeach anyway, I am sure the money just made the vote that much sweeter. Plus the money added a certain amount of justification to something that was not quite really legally justifiable.
Impeachment, held up with a sparkling light, illuminates, darkness.
