    Did the House of Representatives fail to do their duty?

    If the U.S. House of Representative’s committee believed that any witness’s testimony or affidavit would help to better determine the truth, don’t they have a duty to seek it?

    If the White House refuses to cooperate, shouldn’t the House try to legally compel their cooperation?

    If the House issues a legal summons that’s not complied with, shouldn’t the House petition the court to compel compliance?

    If the U.S. House failed to do their duty, and the U.S. Senate chooses not to call witnesses, why should they believe that they can compel the Senate to call witnesses that the House failed to call? Can the House compel the Senate to do their duty?

    Did the House fail to do its duty? Respectfully, Supposn

    Ask McGahn, court subpoenas can be held up for years.

    And no the Democratic House did not fail, but the republicans failed, first in the house and now in the Senate.

    Soon impeachment will become null and void, and the GOP has only itself to blame.

    They wanted a dictator and king, no need for congress anymore.

    The entire Congress has faithfully done its 'duty' to its real constituents, unfortunately for the people of our nation. We do have a representative government, and it is clear whom it represents.

    Damn that Constitution.

    If only Democrat Speakers were dictators....

    It's not supposed to be easy to undo an election.... It's supposed to be hard.

    If the Democrats had any evidence, or at least one 1st hand witness, it wouldn't be nearly this difficult.

    Yes it is, esp when one cheats in an election twice. They have plenty of evidence.

    There's a reason you can't link us to that evidence.

    It doesn't exist.

    You can't prove me wrong by linking to evidence, so the smart and honest thing to do is admit it.

    The democrat have already made it 'null and void'.

    You can thank Nadler and Schiff for that.

    No, the republicans made it null and void, meet the King, King Tramp.

    If they do not vote to remove the Potus, then we do not have separation of powers, and the congress can just go home.

    They have failed for three years straight, including the republican house. How is it that the budget is trillions and trillions and yet we can't have few billions to fix the border?

    No more never Trumpers...
