The Dems will make a lot of noise. Many things discovered will not be revealed. Selective enforcement. You have to pick your battles. The Repubs expected not to run again won't run again. There will be a few surprise dropouts and retirements. Some sacrificial lambs will be offered up. Glass houses. Skeletons in closets. Backroom deals. CHITS. Neither party is going to get too aggressive. Biden has a long history, over three decades, in politics. He knows how the game is played. Once the uproar (the reaction so far has been more of a whimper) dies down it will be business as usual for the Dems and Repubs. If the two sides can actually work together--which would require some Repubs actually having a conscience, and the courage to follow it--we *might* see some legislation to regulate presidential behavior. If if if we're extremely lucky the impeachment procedure would be amended to include former presidents, and conviction would require a simple majority. Will the politicians, from both parties, have the courage to make such radical changes? My thought is no, not anything truly meaningful. I doubt that I will be proven wrong. But it would be a pleasant surprise.
