House Judiciary Committee Forging Ahead on Impeachment Despite Most Americans Opposing It

Well well well it is that time again.
Poor ole congressman green was right after all.....



The House Judiciary Committee plans to vote on a resolution as early as Wednesday to formalize procedures for its so-called impeachment inquiry in hopes of moving it along faster this fall, according to reports.

Faster you say?
Cause in these types of cases speed is of the utmost importance,right?


This is despite the full House never taking a vote on impeachment and only a third of the House backing impeachment or an impeachment inquiry, as well as a recent poll showing that impeachment is opposed by most Americans.

what what what
no vote from the house you say? wait I thought that was a rule?



Sen. Doug Collins (R-GA), the ranking Republican on the committee, said in a tweet Monday that Judiciary Democrats “are trying to pull a fast one on Americans.”They know they don’t have the votes for the whole House to impeach, so they’re trying to adopt committee rules to govern an ‘impeachment investigation’ the House hasn’t even authorized,” he added.

don't have the votes......back to that congressman green......
wait what, the house has to authorize.....



Historically, an impeachment inquiry begins after a full vote in the House. The issue is then referred to the House Judiciary Committee, which would draft articles of impeachment for another vote by the House.

those pesky rules again.......
why do dems never want to follow rules it seems?



Without a majority support in the House, Nadler is effectively skipping the first step to begin an impeachment inquiry.

This genius can't even get the full support of his party.
Why would he be allowed to do this?



“What they’re doing is they’re going to try to change our rules and it’s really sad because what they’re trying to make it look more impeachment-like. They want to make it look like they’re doing something that they promised their base, because they’ve been out promising they would get this president,” Collins said on Fox News on Monday. “They want people to believe something that’s not true. They want to continue to put a false narrative out there,” he added. “And really my concern is when does it cross the line of being a House Judiciary Committee, and when do they become just being part of the DNC campaign operations next year?”

more broken rules it seems
at this point it seems that is all they are reliable for



Currently, more than 130 Democrats and one independent support impeachment or an impeachment inquiry. Democrats need 218 in the House to reach a majority and formally impeach the president.

what a bunch of bozos



The latest polling on impeachment, by Monmouth University Polling Institute, showed that 59 percent of Americans oppose impeachment.

breaking the rules to get what you want won't change those numbers
it will only make them worse

it appears to me they have set their own house on fire to get rid of their rodent problem, when will they realize they will have no house to return to when the rodents are gone?

Speaking of rules. The Republicans controlled the all three branches of government 3 times in my lifetime. And each time they did not outlaw abortion. All they had to do is change the rules at the beginning of the session. The Republican could have passed an Constitutional Amendment banning abortion but they never do. I thought in 2002 it was it but no.

I'm beginning to think Republicans prefer to keep their best wedge issue for getting out the vote right where it is.

They plan on another dog and pony circus where they are going to call all kinds of people to the stand. I hope every one of the people they call on, tell them to "Get Bent!".

There is no group of people MORE LAWLESS than those in DC who write the laws. Well, they really don't write them, they get them handed to them by PAC's.

A constitutional amendment requires a two thirds majority from both branches and three fourths of the states to ratify.

They're dragging rock bottom with no rise in sight. The democrats haven't been this desperate to stop something since we pushed Civil Rights and ended their Jim Crow Law.

Logic and facts hold no sway here.
You will not deter them from their glorious purpose!

I agree,

Their own party isn't supporting Nadler.

They're just playing more failed politics. They learned nothing in 2016, and rather than do their jobs in congress when this nation needs so much to be done... They'll waste time and money going after failed objectives to pander to a minority.

both need to learn that lesson

will this be part of the official dnc platform?
If now how will it not tear the party apart?
Or do they just no longer care?

2020 dem mottoes-

"Vote for me, I'm not Trump"
"I helped to try and impeach"
"I don't like racists, or nazis"

While as compelling as all of those are, I don't really hear much policy discussion other than free stuff.

Ironically, they have an opportunity to really rediscover their root, or redefine themselves in a way to be competitive with Trump... But they're not making an effort to do either.

Amazing how poorly our educational system has become at teaching basic civics isn't it?

It is no accident, by the way.

Liberals prefer an uneducated population, that are not aware of their govermental check and balances, or the importance of the constitution, as it relates to the protection of an individual's rights.

Unfortunately for the last 25 years our education system has been focused on feelings not facts.

They aren't making policy arguements because they realize they can't win those when they have to be specific.

The #1 concern of a majority of Americans is the economy. Failing a complete collapse, there is nothing to argue.

They, as a party (not all individuals), have refused to address immigration reform, which is also among top concerns of the electorate. Another fight they can't win.

They are simply trying to buy votes, with promises of free stuff, that any rational person realizes is not free. When asked how such programs are to be funded, they resort to vague solutions that are not realistic.

My point is that they can't run on issues, because they are on the wrong side of mist of them, and if they try, they will exposed as bigger clowns than they already appear to be.

Or maybe that's proof that republicans aren't going to make a full scale ban on abortion despite the Democrats continually trying to tell the American people that's what they want to do. Also in those three times, they haven't gotten rid of Social Security. Maybe it's time to re-evaluate your world view?

I guess they feel like maybe now is the time they have ultimate leverage to slide these kinds of things in rather than avoiding wedge issues... Doubling down on 2016 when they called anyone who didn't play ball with them bigots.

I'm sure it will work this time, lol.
