I don't see the exercise of a Constitutional power as an action against the Electorate. We disagree.
The House is respecting the will of the voters Redneck. The people who voted in 2018 spoke loud and clear.
You know I find the Democratic leadership to be stupid, and I thought the Ukraine deal was stupid but in my opinion at least, the Mueller Report was very clear about two things: the Trump campaign worked with the Russians (though there was no "collusion") and the Russians DID interfere in our electoral process... but more importantly, the President of the United States has acted on multiple occasions to obstruct justice. I didnt' give a damn about Clinton's peccadillos, but what I did support was impeachment for obstructing justice ... and I do the same for Trump.
There are deplorables on all sides.
The Republican Senate will have to acquit a President that has obstructed justice openly
I doubt the demographics that gave the House to the Democrats are doing anything but heading in their direction.

She has held one elected office: Congresswoman for the state of New York, and I remember no attempt to oust her.
Donald Trump was elected President of the United states in 2016 by the people. That is fact.
The purpose of impeachment is to remove the President of the United States. That is fact.
Then why did they leave the Senate in the hands of the Republican party?
But even Bill Clinton had the charges against him public and a House vote to commence investigation into impeachment. We all knew what crime he was being impeached for: perjury and associated obstruction of justice to an admitted incident. What crime is Trump being accused of? Obstruction of Justice to what exactly? What justice has he improperly obstructed? Where's his House-wide vote?
Clinton was a US Senator.
No, Trump was elected by the electoral college. Clinton was elected by the people.
Because there are more Red states than Blue states.
There's no crime to be accused of because the articles of impeachment haven't been written because the investigations are on-going.

The Reeeeee is thick in this thread.
You guys can rant and rave all you want, but everyone knows this impeach inquiry is nothing but political theater.
You know it, and we know it.
It's not going anywhere, there's no there there.

On September 24, Nancy Pelosi opened the Inquiry to six committees. The six committees charged with the task are the committees on Financial Services, the Judiciary, Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, Oversight and Reform, and Ways and Means. Let’s see the damage so far.
Financial Services: Chaired by Maxine Waters, has engaged in seditious commentary and urged violence and was in violation of House Ethics until it was overturned three years later. Expect to see more on Waters soon.
The Judiciary: Chaired by Jerry Nadler. There is personal animosity between Nadler and Trump going back to the 80’s. Ethically he should recuse himself but he accepts dirty campaign funds and backed the Iran deal so why be ethical now?
Intelligence: Chaired by Adam Schiff. Well there is that tabled motion to censure, but the disconcerting one is the amount of classified information he leaks or confirms.
Foreign Affairs: Chaired by Eliot Engel, slammed Omar’s prejudiced commentary but doesn’t want her removed from his committee and actually somewhat defends her. His Foreign Policy is that of a Warhawk. Vice Chair is Jauquin Castro (who’s twin brother is 2020 presidential candidate Julián Castro) might have an ethical dilemma of a conflict of interest since the main article of impeachment is trying to interfere with the 2020 election and all. But we know how ethics are in DC...
Oversight and Reform: Chaired by Elijah Cummings, was under federal investigation and had an untimely death. Vice Chair was Katie Hill who just resigned from the House rather than face ethics violations.
Ways and Means: Chaired by Richard Neal, should be brought up on ethics violations because he worked to strike down a free IRS tax filing system while taking donations from Intuit and H&R Block both of whom make and sell tax filing software. But interesting enough, he may turn out to be Trump’s only friend as he is the least progressive agent of chaos chairing the six committees. And this is the man that can demand Trump’s tax returns and he refuses to do so until he builds a good case on having them.
