  1. I wrote to Senator Risch about impeaching and voting out Mr.Trump.
    I received back a letter that has the following quote ” The Constitution describes the crimes for which a president may be impeached as “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Mere political policy disagreements do not reach those standards.”
    I believe that Risch ( lover of political power) will see the Ukraine as mere political policy. What a shame that he will not see it for what it is. Bribery and treasonous.
    I thought you might like to know what the Republican establishment is saying.

    1. You have hit on the reason that three Idaho Democrats are running against Senator Risch.
