Well now, if this doesn’t take the cake...


"The vote, which is expected to occur on Wednesday, will lay out the ground rules for conducting hearings now that the committee has publicly announced it is considering recommending articles of impeachment against Trump," CNN reported. "It is expected to follow the precedent set in 1974 over the committee's procedures during then-President Richard Nixon's impeachment proceedings."

Daily wire

Is this a last ditch effort to steal an election? What can they possibly be impeaching the president for?
Or is this just to prevent further Epstein news from making the headlines?

In addition to probing potential obstruction of justice by Trump, the Judiciary Committee is weighing allegations that Trump directed hush money payments to women accusing him of extramarital affairs in the weeks before the 2016 election, as well as evidence that Trump has sought to steer U.S. and foreign government spending to his luxury resorts, raising questions about whether he has violated the Constitution's Emoluments Clause. Until now, Trump-related investigations had been a patchwork effort by six congressional committees. The Ways and Means Committee, for example, is pursuing Trump's tax returns in court. The Financial Services Committee and Intelligence Committee are seeking Trump's financial records from Deutsche Bank and Capital One. The Foreign Affairs Committee has sought details about Trump's interactions with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who the intelligence community has assessed sought to boost Trump's 2016 electoral prospects. And the Oversight Committee had initially taken the lead on allegations about hush money payments, calling Trump's former personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen to testify in February before he went to prison on charges connected to the scheme.

House Oversight is investigating whether US military expenditures have been propping up Trump Turnberry. A peculiar refueling stop in Glasgow by a US Air Force crew, who stayed overnight at the resort—there & back—tipped them off.

My guess is they're just doing it to win brownie points from their base. Otherwise, there wouldn't be much point in trying to impeach him this late in his term. Especially if they were to actually succeed. Then they would be left running against Mike Pence. Who doesn't look as much like a villain to most people as Trump does and is actually not an obnoxious, annoying blowhard like Trump. Which is much harder to demonize to a liberal mind.

Pence is more like a really soft Reagan (though he doesn't really have a fraction of the charisma). The Democrats certainly do not (should not) want to have to try and win an election against someone like Pence. They are much better off running against Trump, assuming they pick a better candidate than Joe Biden. Which I assume they will.

""Democrats rumored to start impeachment proceedings this coming week""

They better be careful.

Pence will get 350 EC votes hands down no contest.

The real "polls" are on news blackouts 😎

If they had any legal grounds, it would have been done already. When will the citizens see through this hate # show that calls themselves a political party?

My impression is that one party is trying to run the country and the other one is hell bent on destroying it on their way to get a grip of power.

Seeing unhinged people like AOC being supported by the democratic party makes me shake my head. Why is this person even getting airtime?

And who might that be and how can you have any faith that they will?
With all the shenanigans from the Dems in 2016, you can expect more of the same.
The only one that seems to have a semi original platform is Andrew Yang and maybe Gabbard, the socialists have no chance and the rest only have “Orange Man Bad!”
These impeachment proceedings are an already doomed before it starts, last ditch effort by the Dems to save face with their cult base that has been in nonstop hysterics for going on 3 years.

The last gasping breath of a fading era. Soon they'll all be arrested for crimes against humanity.

Not to mention withholding aid to Ukraine unless they come up with some dirt about Joe BIden that trump can use in his campaign.
He sent Rudy Giuliani there about six to eight weeks ago to begin the process.
WTF is this supposed to be about?

Altering weather maps, using a failing airport that he needs to stay open to serve his golf course in Scotland by having military planes pay full price for fuel at a commercial airport instead of a military base to boost their revenue.
Making the crew stay at his resort and charging full price for the rooms.
Putting money in his pocket at every turn.

You know, you are right even though you are left, President Trump IS a narcissistic blowhard, serial liar, incestuous, evil person who fires his staff at the drop of his fake hair. One can't believe a thing he says and half of what he writes. He must be on the point of having total Alzheimers and probably has STD's from all the women and possibly men he has raped. I have to agree with you that he is incapable of running the left leaning nation such as it is. He should be impeached just by the way he treats our American main stream media. Russia sure did stick it to US this time. I will never vote conservative nor Republican ever again just because of Trump !!!




end/sarc...

See, I can write better than you, Silly, so where do I pick up my check?

Since the leftists have come out for;

Open borders
Raising taxes
Eliminating the fossil fuel industry


This should be the final nail in their coffin.


They keep saying "Hold my beer" when it comes to idiotic moves.

Horowitz report coming out same time.
Coincidence?

Dems desperately want anything to distract from that.

Has anybody else noticed of late an uptick in the petty, stupid, accusatory fake news reports about the President? It was seeming to me that I had and I was wondering why.

I'd bet it's connected to this.

In other news, Walmart ammunition sales have been up lately in states that have militias. A friend stopped in a Walmart to get a fishing license and the lady in the sports department said he was the odd one today, not buying ammo...


Let me know how that impeachment thing works out.

Your dimwittery precedes you.
In case you haven’t heard, Trump was already loaded before he was elected.
In contrast to that, the King and Queen of your cult, the Clinton’s and the Prince and Princess, the Obama’s have lined their pockets on the backs of the downtrodden and gullible fools such as yourself for decades.
At this point, anything Trump receives in compensation for anything, is nothing to him in the overall picture.
Stop with the never ending nonsense.

I often make the mistake that people in Washington are somehow smarter than the rest of us and must have some ulterior motive or plan, but continued moves like these just illustrate how dumb they actually are!

It’s called desperation. These people live in a world of their own making that is barely connected to reality. They don’t even realize the damage they’re doing to themselves and their party.

You know how sometime you sit down to do a little of nature’s business and then look over to see if have a roll after the deed is done?

DC tends to look down to see if they were on the bowl before they check for the roll. And it happens far too often.
