I was not talking about a poll on his approval ratings. ( which I believe are inflated when it comes to his own party) but anyway.... The poll was on whether to impeach and remove him from office and an overwhelming majority are saying to impeach and remove him.
These are recent changes and shifts in sentiment based on this Ukraine thing.

I dont need luck. None of this is up to me.
Lets see how it goes because right now where I said he would be impeached and you said he would not I am ahead.
I guess I could research abuse of power within the presidency to see what precedent for ethics has been defined.
Maybe I will go and do that.
Nancy is in favor of a narrow focus while others want a broader scope of charges for the senate to consider.

Your last sentence wondered about support among the Republican Senators, I offered a metric.

Impeachment is one thing; removal is quite another.

prey tell how does the house show action?


On impeachment? However they choose to. The only Constitutional requirement is a simple majority before sending the President over to the Senate for trial.

lol
i would take precedent over your "However they choose to" every day of the week.

That doesn't matter. What matters is that there were Articles of Impeachment to vote on, and to reject. The House doesn't have any Articles of Impeachment, at the moment, to vote on.

Its an investigation. They do not have to tell the perp anything lol.
When the time comes he will get to see what they have. Then he even gets to defend himself. He is very good at that of course so there is that... But hopefully he wont lie to them. And then they turn it over to the senate.
There is no rule saying they have to vote on investigating. If you want to talk about precedent then it was set in 1866 and the two that followed just had frivolous unnecessary votes to action.
But the rule is "Their house, their rules". The constitution does not require a vote to launch an investigation to see if impeachment is necessary. What was it that Mulvany said?

Since they don't have any Articles of Impeachment, like Mr Green, who's resolution you used as an example, what exactly do you think the House should be voting on right now?

I agree and I do not think for a minute that he will be removed, not easily, not by this senate, unless Nancy lays out a very compelling case for abuse of power.
I think it may come down to public sentiment and the senators will have to act based on that or risk losing in '20.
That there will be a trial is no longer in doubt. The outcome... is anybody's guess.

Because the Republicans, when they had the House, changed House rules to allow committee subpeona power, without having to get a House vote.


“House Republicans changed the rules in 2015 to allow many of their committee chairmen to issue subpoenas without consulting the minority party, overriding Democrats objections that likened the tactic to something out of the McCarthy era.”
”Now the weapon that the GOP wielded dozens of times against Barack Obama’s agencies could allow Democrats to bombard President Trump’s most controversial appointees with demands for information. And many Democrats are itching to use it.”

so house rules are greater than the constitution?
i believe it says "the house"
not a committee
not the speaker of the house

"The House" voted on and agreed to the rules that give committees authority to investigate and issue subpoenas, without having to ask the main body for permission.

It's constitutional. If it weren't the Republicans wouldn't have installed those rules.

Once the committees have completed their investigations, they will release reports and Articles of Impeachment based on evidence presented in those reports, that the main body of The House will vote on.

If The Houses passes any of the Articles of Impeachment, they and whatever evidence the committees have presented, will go to the Senate for trial. At that point the President can present his defense. The Senators serve as jurors, and will hear and decided on the impeachment charges.

I do not disagree.
I do disagree that impeaching the president is included in such.
Especially when the event being investigated falls solely within the authority of the executive branch.
Like the diplomacy and foreign policy, or not ,it is at the discrimination of the president. The house has no business questioning such. It is a separation of powers issue imo.
Especially as flimsy as a 2nd hand complaint from an unelected government bureaucrat.
