House committee adopts new procedures for impeachment investigation of President Trump
The Judiciary Committee vote Thursday allows the committee counsel to question witnesses in public hearings and makes several other changes to panel rules. The procedural tools are similar to those used in the impeachment proceedings against Presidents Richard M. Nixon and Bill Clinton.
they have gone from only 4 progs wanting impeachment to being split
obviously they believe impeachment is the thing to do. the only thing holding it back are political considerations
because the swamp
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) slammed Congress as "complicit" in the latest scandal surrounding President Trump's conversations with the Ukrainian president by "failing to act" after special counsel Robert Mueller's report.
"After the Mueller report, Congress had a duty to begin impeachment. By failing to act, Congress is complicit in Trump's latest attempt to solicit foreign interference to aid him in US elections," Warren tweeted. "Do your constitutional duty and impeach the president."……..More
Of course they are
if they believe he has committed impeachable offenses then they have to impeach regardless of whether they think they can succeed or not.
the whole thing with Pelosi is pure swamp
do the right thing regrardless
Dear Mr. lawyer even though you keep repeating the accusation of dozens of laws broke, or lost confidence in the POTUS over some action or another doesn't equal to truth. If there was something concrete they would be all over it and probably a good portion of Reps. would join them.
Dear Mr. T.bones since there is no Impeachment motion in the system, and the house leader has strongly stated that there is no offence strong enough to bring forth for impeachment. I would take that as evidence that articles of impeachment won't be brought forward on the I hate Trump argument.
Dear Mr. Techbones what instruction was I suppose to take from you, I laid perfectly valid and cited reasons for no Impeachment, could you kindly do the same with your instructions?
WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., added further fuel to the impeachment fire in a Saturday evening tweet where she said the even bigger scandal than the controversy over Biden, Ukraine, and the Trump-Congress whistleblower fight was House Democrats' refusal to impeach Trump.
"At this point, the bigger national scandal isn't the president's lawbreaking behavior - it is the Democratic Party's refusal to impeach him for it," she wrote.
Although House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still opposes impeachment, it appears that the controversy is starting to shift the calculus for some Democrats.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, said in a Sunday morning television interview, "we very well may have crossed the Rubicon here.”
"If the president is essentially withholding military aid at the same time he is trying to browbeat a foreign leader into doing something illicit...then [impeachment] might be the only remedy that is co-equal to the evil that this conduct represents," he said on CNN's "State of the Union."
On Fox News on Sunday morning, congressional Republicans called for investigations of their own and denounced the drive for impeachment as a goal of "socialists."
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures" that he wanted the Department of Justice to "appoint an investigator to look at all things Ukraine" and what he said the Ukrainian government had done to help Democrats in the 2016 election.
And later in the show, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who is the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, accused Ocasio-Cortez of promoting a "socialist" agenda of "one-party control" of government.
"The more I think that they’re out there promoting this kind of craziness and silliness, the more that the American people are put off, and the more likely President Trump is re-elected,” Nunes added.
I agree those are the ten leading reasons to impeach him
I would impeach him for the comey thing alone
he could be impeached just for with holding the phone conversation from congress
indeed.....but congress has become afraid of hi;m.........and are now yes men.
The fact they are afraid of his crazy ,impulsive and venally savage Twitter rants.........is a big indicator that something is very very wrong. They seem too intimidated to perform their job......let alone assert themselves t him.
Schiff: Impeachment may be the only remedy if Trump pressured Ukraine on Biden
Donald admits to talking with the Ukraine leader...........rather arrogantly. He sidesteps the fact he probably "pressured " him. The witness should be properly interrogated.
everything like this is a word game with him........
Impeachment might be too good for him. What a sleazy con .
