totally



The symbolic vote had been expected to fail in the Republican-controlled House. It put some lawmakers in competitive districts in a tough spot by forcing them on the record about impeachment.
Lawmakers did not actually vote on the actual articles of impeachment, but on a procedural measure that would have led to a vote on them.


your source


were you super stoked when you started this thread?


We all seen them time and time again vote unanimously along Party lines on things like health care. So when it came time to back up all their Trump is a bad guy rhetoric all they could accomplish was a measly 58 votes. That is the power of Trump, they fear his influence on their own re elections and are afraid to commit and back up their rhetoric.

Trump is the man, admit it.

Or Trump is part of their gang acting like he's against them.

But yeah, they're afraid to vote against him but more than willing to damage their re-election chances by talking crap about him 24/7.

They wanted Hillary not Trump, did you miss that part between all their tears?

It is mainly their Party leaders with the rhetoric, which is supposed to represent their positions. They talk a big talk but cannot produce the votes.

Maybe they need better leaders that actually represent what the vast majority of Democrats represent not just the elite. If they went back to representing middle class America and uplifting the poor instead of turning everyone poor then forgetting them, their Party might return to being American. Now it is just a cesspool of globalist interests.

All the money is in the hard left areas like Hollywood. That's why Hillary spent so much time there during the campaign, in a state she was pretty much guaranteed to win, as opposed to actually campaigning in swing states. It's why Pelosi keeps getting elected minority leader, despite absolutely abysmal leadership. They have to keep moving the platform further left to keep the money flowing from the big donors, but in doing so they're alienating blue-collar Democrats. I know a number of blue-collar Dems that voted for Trump in Pennsylvania. They helped flip a county that went easily for Obama the last 2 elections from blue to red. This happened all over numerous states, but they're pretending it was Russia.

Keep it up dummies.

Well that as a good way of seeing who reads before commenting. Not only was this a symbolic vote that was expected to fail as TST pointed out, it also had nothing to do with what most of everyone seemed to assume it did (i.e. the investigations):


In his memo to lawmakers, Green didn’t allege “obstruction of justice” or reference the ongoing investigation into the 2016 presidential campaign’s connection with Russia.

Instead, Green highlighted Trump’s supposed association with “White Nationalism, Neo-Nazism and Hate,” as well as “Inciting Hatred and Hostility,” as offenses worthy of impeachment.

“Friends, whether we like it or not, we now have a bigot in the White House who incites hatred and hostility,” Green wrote in a letter.

and if people read the constitution and knew the law they would know impeachment is not a legal question but a political one. High crimes and misdemeanors is not based on legal definitions and is whatever Congress decides it is. Symbolic vote or not its still a legal attempt to impeach the lawfully elected President because they dont like him.

Nothing more - nothing less.

The RATIONAL House members don't want to be on record as attempting to Impeach the most successful U.S. President in this country's history.

Yup, it's all about reelection. After the midterms they hope to be back with lipstick all puckered up for their Commander in Chief.

lawmakers immediately voted to effectively kill his resolution, with 364 voting to table it and 58 Democrats voting to move ahead.

Well that didn't go well did it, lol.

I thought all the Dems were on the same page in hating Trump, they could only get 58 votes......something is off with this reality of votes and what is portrayed by the Dem Party in the MSM.


Look up impeachment; can't be done without official criminal charges being pressed. 58 dems are idiots.

Most successful? By what criteria?

Don't get me wrong, while I may not particularly like the man, he's not done a horrible job. But "most successful" seems a bit premature...

Trump enjoys following the worst President in US history so high accolades are easy to disseminate.

I'm speaking future-tense. Taking Trump's current record of achievements, and projecting that track-record forward will EASILY make him the Most Successful President of the modern era. And that's just in his first term. If he chooses to do two terms, oh man!
