Oh noes!! So maybe next week for impeachment hearings? What's the plan and who's calling the shots?


An impeachment resolution was brought forward in the U.S. House today: And quickly killed. 137 Democrats voted along with Republicans to kill the resolution. 95 Dems voted to consider the issue of impeachment. Doesn't look like we're ever going to #ITMFA in Pelosi's House. The articles were brought forth by Representative Al Green of Texas, who said Trump brought the presidency “in contempt, ridicule, disgrace, and disrepute."

He wants them to do it because it's a win no matter what they do. The likely outcome of any vote is a failure however if it's successful in the House it will never make it past Senate. Those Democrats on shaky ground will get hammered with it during the reelection cycle.

Not sure why they bring it up, when the party leadership already said they do not support the idea at this time. Seems like a waste of time.

Actually it's their reaction and continued pursuit of removing Trump that's disgraceful.

Bill Clinton lied under oath and bombed Iraq for four days to cover up the issue that came to light.

Simply not liking a person and being upset at Tweets are not impeachable offenses. They need to stop wasting time and money on this unless they have something real, recent, and relevant.

They have no grounds for impeachment, and some of them know it. Some of them actually have read the Constitution, perhaps.

It's a waste of time because there are no grounds for impeachment. There is no crime. "High crimes and misdemeanors" has meaning. You cannot impeach a President simply because you don't like him, or his policies.

They have no choice. It's the rules. Pelosi has been trying to prevent reps from putting a motion on the floor but she can't do that except by persuasion. Anyway, they vote on disposition of the motion - to table it, send it to committee etc not on actual impeachment. They voted the same thing when the GOP controlled the House.

An actual crime for impeachment is important.

Being a boor causing "contempt, ridicule, disgrace, and disrepute" is not a crime.

The argument was "unfit to govern" which seems to fit the bill in Trumps case, but impeachment is doomed to fail if the party leadership says they do not support the idea. In other words it is irrelevant what their argument was.

Quote:
The purposes underlying the impeachment process also indicate that non-criminal activity may constitute sufficient grounds for impeachment. The purpose of impeachment is not to inflict personal punishment for criminal activity. Instead, impeachment is a “remedial” tool; it serves to effectively “maintain constitutional government” by removing individuals unfit for office.
