What goes around comes around

What is that old saying? Turnabout is fair play? I also like that saying about karma, and what you sow that also shall you reap. Before this is over, Republicans will wish Hillary was elected so they could have done to her what they are about to go through.
They are locked into an untenable situation, one that is antithetic to the principles they have tried to sell like so much snake oil. They used to be against deficits, trade wars and Russia. And for Republicans to stand by Trump just shows they never stood for anything at all.
I'm a big fan of democratic norms, following precedent and our Constitution this Republican crowd and their dear leader have come to dismantle. They are using the tools of democracy to dismantle democracy itself.
They have played us and our system flawlessly if not heavy handedly. They consolidate their dark money to install those to pass the laws allowing money to count more than we the people. They sold their soul.
Should they impeach? What was the precedent set by Republicans under Clinton? The Republicans gained the Senate and the White House in the election after the impeachment. Will the Democrats learn from that election?
The Senate under McConnell wouldn't even take up the impeachment, so since there is no law saying how quick an impeachment has to be wrapped up, call the impeachment vote for the exact number of days McConnell held that Supreme Court seat open to steal the seat, to be voted on in 391 days. And every day, using the Benghazi precedent, investigate the Mueller report, one page per day.
Show the American people just what this modern Republican party represents.
What is that other old saying? My how the worm turns.
