good question - some in the House probably want to go back to their constituents showing they held him accountable - there are a number of them are rearing to go......this past vote had to do with his racism, not his obstruction/campaign finance, etc.

After Mueller, Mueller, the House will re-assess.

In any case, if Trump loses 2020, he's then private citizen Trump and SDNY prosecutors will want to have a word with him.

You left out some KEY information.

They voted not to impeach him for being a racist.

B-b-but I thought Amash hated Trump and wanted him impeached?? The same ones who said he was a Pelosi democrat even though he voted with Trump 92% of the time this year is the same demented thought process.

Wow really? He didn't want Trump impeached over his garbage because lo and behold REASONS MATTER. And anyone who has followed Amash and cares about the truth knows this about him.
Cooler heads don't want articles of impeachment unless there is a chance of it succeeding.

Stay tuned. Just because they voted that way once doesn't mean it will happen that way next time.

It'll be interesting to see what the folks have planned with subpoenas of the Trump clan when their break is all done. Maybe they can do like McCarthy said he did w/ Clinton and the Benghazi grilling. DEM House could do the same w/ Trump's circle ----keep it in the news and on the voter's minds.

Blast from the past....https://www.realclearpolitics.com/vi...l_numbers.html

Two can play that game.

True. He might win again in 2020 but once that fun is over, he will have "some splainin to do Lucy." Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

It's about the specific reason and not really about if it will succeed or not imo. Reasons matter.

They know Biden is too dumb to beat Trump in 2020, impeachment is the only way.

Clinton lied under oath and bombed Iraq for 4 days to cover up his shenanigans.
