The mountain of evidence supporting articles of impeachment over the Great Ukraine Shakedown has grown high. Granted, much of it is circumstantial and based on second-hand testimony, the result of Trump stonewalling congress and blocking access to any White House staffers with direct knowledge of his involvement in the affair.  But the fact that Democrats leading the investigation haven’t yet been allowed to turn over every rock in the widening scandal is largely irrelevant. Republicans are determined to fight impeachment at any cost, and no amount of evidence will be enough to convict and remove Trump from office.
