If you think that 'more socialism' will deal with the problems of the last 86 years of glorious SOCIALISM, good luck!
What are you talking about exactly? FDR confiscating everyone's gold? I'll give you that. That was pretty crazy. What else?

Why do think Giuliani will never let Trump testify under oath. Trumps not that intelligent, A liar have to remember the lies he tells. He's told so many its ridiculous. A good lawyer will have him all twisted up and sweating like Nixon in 5 minutes.

The Danger In Not Impeaching Trump
It may be risky politically, but Congress has a responsibility to act.

The Democrats would also run enormous risks if they didn’t hold to account a president who has clearly abused power and the Constitution, who has not honored the oath of office and who has had a wave of campaign and White House aides plead guilty to or be convicted of crimes.

Well, prior to Mueller getting his teeth ripped out, Giuliani feared a perjury trap, period, end of story, full stop.

I still say that we should wait it out. Vote him out in 2020. We moderates need to get together with the Millenniels who also tend to despise this monster.
Most of the hate and violence is coming from the left Progressives. The Corruption in the last 2 years has been from the people who started this fake Collusion conspiracy to overturn the election.

Illegals? The Democrats have done everything possible to Block Trump in this issue. They have put forth no laws from the house that offers any solution and they've blocked any walls that is the base to build am immigration policy upon.

I really want the dems to start impeachment proceedings. It will assure they lose the 2020 presidential elections and probably the House.

The more the left appeals to their far left elements, the more they alienate the centrists, who are the ones who actually vote. How many people do you see at the polling places with purple hair, multiple piercings, and of dubious gender?

How do you KNOW he did nothing wrong? I'm not talking about just believing he didn't, but actually KNOWING he did not. So far, about 400+ experts in this field have reviewed actual evidence, and are of the opinion that he would be brought up on charges, if he were not a sitting President.

As a good American, I would think you would want absolute proof that the man running this country is honorable and ethical. You do, don't you ?

That’s all laughable white noise, but good luck!
A president asking his counsel to fire a special prosecutor and then asking him to lie about it is not white noise nor are many of the other things that are documented in the report. I would love to hear the other redacted testimony by McGahn but I doubt that we will. A president providing direction to FBI and DOJ directors is unusual.


I don't think the republicans will go along with this but that shouldn't stop the house from proceeding if they feel this meets the standard.

Please try as hard as you can to find a POSITIVE story from the NY Times about Trump.

As they say, "consider the SOURCE!"

No, I don't.


Trump isn't a saint. And guess what --- Obama wasn't either, and neither were any of the other people who ever ran things. I want someone in there who can get the job done. Period. And Trump is getting it done to the best of his abilities, despite a media that has been against him from day one.
