I think that the knowledge that, no matter what, the craven Repubicans wouldn't vote to impeach is dampening the spirit of many.
Wrong.

Removal from office is up to the Senate via what happens to be referred to as an impeachment trial.

Impeachment itself is a House action.

Once at least one article of impeachment has reached the House floor (after a vote in committee) and has passed via a vote on the House (not committee) floor, then the President has been impeached.

Both Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson were acquitted in their Senate trials and thus not removed from office, but both of them were impeached.

Impeachment investigation hearings take a while.

Time is used up in subpoena fights over documents and testimony, votes to hold people in contempt of Congress, the time it takes for appeals to wind through the courts, ...

With only 588 more days in office/510 days until the 2020 election, and given that he is pure as the driven snow, you'd think Trump would encourage his people to comply so he could get this behind him.

Oh, but no.

Whatever happens to Trump I think it should wait until hes out of office.


In the space between your ears. Meanwhile................. back to reality.............

I don't think it is growing. I think there was an initial surge after Mueller's statement but I think folks are skeptical.

There are no guarantees impeachment hearings will produce the results many Americans (mainly Democrats) want and the Democrats really risk losing the election if they can't produce anything concrete.

There is sufficient issues to campaign on without having to go that route.

If the Dems can't win the election fighting against Trump's trade policies or diplomacy (or lack thereof), lack of health care fixes, etc... then they can't win.

It is what it is.

The endless Dim wet dream of throwing out the 2016 nightmare and putting the tiara on a supported ramrod straight Hildebeast. She is then thrown like a piece of wood into the back of the Mercedes van while "hail to the chief" plays on the way to the WH where first husband Bill awaits surrounded by the interns. Thus restoring equilibrium to the leftist universe.

The Dems have been hijacked by ideologues, me! me! me! before the country. I've never seen so many people become giddy when Trump could fail, yet be wrong EVERY SINGLE TIME! It's petty and childish.

Most of the people in this country are pragmatic and they still put the country first.


The last thing we need are ideologues taking over because they never fail to screw things up entirely. FUBAR is SOP for progressive socialists.
I respect the Office of the President and Commander in Chief. The current person in the Oval office, has not done a single thing to warrant my respect.

The man is in office because of interference from a foreign entity and IMO is an illegal president. For that reason he should be dragged out of the oval office, before anymore damage is done.

But she is not.
So there must have been obstruction of justice. There just has to be.

You have to forgive them, they're just children.



Why do you think they want to lower the voting age to 16?
