<nitpick>I know this is pissing uphill, but pet peeves never cease to peeve so FWIW this old canard is, well, a canard. Louis XIV's dying words were, reportedly, "I die, but the State remains" - which conveys the exact opposite of the oft seen "quote". Sunny Lou was demonstrably an ego of Trumpian proportions re:many things, but he did seem to have seen himself as a slave to the State/the bigger purpose that was France.</nitpick>

What's interesting to me here is that he actually believes impeachment proceedings might actually happen. Which, considering the consensus here and elsewhere seems to be "never gonna happen because Senate", might mean there's noise and grumbling he's heard behind Republican doors and we haven't ?
