Spin away, lefties. People understand what you want to do and why you want to do it.
That’s basically it. Sour grapes. There’s NO other reason. None!

Impeachment? Lol absolutely ridiculous!

just so you've got it correct going forward:

Impeachment = officially charge = House vote

Senate = trial = find guilty

You've probably read headlines and lead paragraphs enough to come to your conclusion. But you haven't learned what "impeachment" is...

Quote:
The House can impeach a president — which is like an indictment — by a simple majority vote. After a trial in the Senate, two-thirds of the upper chamber would have to vote to convict to remove the president
so yes, the Dems, with their majority, can IMPEACH Trump any time that you can all convince Pelosi that it's the politically-right thing to do. Clearly, any DECENT Representative that really felt for the good of the democracy this rose to actually impeachable/remove from office offense would have already done this.

Yet they haven't. How can that be?

If Pelosi and Schumer thought they had Trump dead to rights, and frankly they have a compliant media, then they'd have impeached him with the 51%+ of the House and then force the Senate to find him "not guilty", and you'd run on that.

It really is that simple. If you don't understand that yet, let us know.

Personally, I do not want to impeach Trump. Investigate, yes. The one good thing he is doing is cracking down on illegals. Other than that, he's a lying con man.
oh my lol - I have indeed read the most comical explanation ever.

A "protest" vote went for Gary Johnson. He had plenty of positions to please either Dems or Pubs who couldn't stand their candidate. And you're claiming that you couldn't stand Hillary.

A slim majority of Americans (52%) want one of the following: to begin impeachment proceedings (22%), to continue investigations into potential political wrongdoing of Trump (25%) or to publicly reprimand him — that is, censure (5%).

Thirty-nine percent say no further action should be taken and that the current investigations should end. That is largely reflective of Trump's base, as Trump maintains a 41% approval rating in the poll. (Trump's approval rating in Marist's polling has never been lower than 35%, which it hit right after the racist violence in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017; or higher than 43%, which it reached in February 2019 as the unemployment rate dipped below 4%.)

https://www.npr.org/2019/06/08/73069...on-way-forward

Whatever happens to Trump I think it should wait until he’s out of office.
NPR? Might as well cite CNN or MSNBC. They also claimed that Trump made a fool of himself in the UK on DDay. They are delusional.

I'm sure they polled mostly Dem's so of course, it's climbing. Don't forget the polls said HRC would win by 85 points on Nov 8th, on the 9th not so much.


Check this out:

THAT'S MICHIGAN - He wins Michigan he wins, period.

Trump's approval rating is also climbing. Next week he should be close to his all-time highs. He is also ahead of Obama at this same point. Over 90% of Republicans approve of him, which is a record. That must scare the snot out of the progressives.

I didn't vote for him last time (Libertarian) but I will this time. There isn't a single Dem I could vote for other than Gabbard, but she is too smart, ethical, smart, logical, and smart to ever be their candidate.

Let them impeach away. In the meantime the House Dem's have done absolutely nothing, though they just voted to give themselves a raise. How's that for irony, rewarding themselves for doing nothing?

Watch the FOX NEWS video above that I posted. Trumps ALWAYS making a fool of himself just because your walking out of the room, when he does it makes it no less true.

No. If Trump had actually obeyed the rule of law, not obstructed, released his taxes, as all other recent candidates have done, not tried to undo the balance of power between the branches of government to become dictatorial, talk of impeachment would not be happening. Many of us would not have liked him being there, because....lots of policy reasons. But there would be no call for impeachment if there were no grounds. He has done so much damage to the rule of law, ignored so many laws and precedents, he has tried to take apart the constitution. I would say that he only likes the 2nd amendment. Other than that, he would like to throw it all out and become king.

If you think that's the reason, you definitely haven't been keeping up.

TDS.

the only thing he hasn't done that Obama did is release his tax returns. Which is NOT a law.

If the House wanted to pass a rule that all Presidential candidates had to release them, I do believe that they can.
