    I don't want to disillusion you, but Nancy Pelosi's track record of supporting the Bush wars, the Patriot Act ( illegal surveillance , torture), Big Pharma, Wall Street bailouts and tax cuts for the rich say otherwise.

    Sure, the D's can do what they please in the House, if they have a majority.

    But its unrealistic for them to expect any cooperation from the R's in anything if they do things in such a hyper partisan way. And considering the fact that it takes a bipartisan supermajority to remove someone from office, it make the who impeachment exercise a ultra partisan waste of time if you shut out the opposition party.

    In both the Nixon and Clinton impeachment inquiry resolutions, the minority party on the investigating committee was granted the power to subpoena — something the minority party does not normally have. Subpoenas were still subject to a vote of the committee, giving the majority party a way to block them.

    If similar language were included in a House impeachment inquiry resolution against President Trump — which is what Republicans are pushing for — it would theoretically enable GOP members to, say, subpoena testimony or information from former Vice President Joe Biden, or his son Hunter, or try to take the inquiry into an entirely different direction.
    Why Republicans may want a House vote on impeachment inquiry and Pelosi doesn't
    -----------------------------------------

    What Democrats testified during the House Impeachment case against Clinton??

    And so?

    If the Bidens are corrupt, why shouldn't they be investigated to the max? Biden is trying to become President.

    As far as the son is concerned, his association with Whitey Bulger's beloved nephew, and involvement with the Cocaine and Prostitution rackets are well known. I can't think of a reason why he shouldn't be looked at. Particularly when there is evidence that Vice President Biden may have known about Hunter's drug use and whore mongering, and said nothing about it- that's the very definition of "Justice Obstruction"

    Apparently your heads been up Maxine's ass so long your brain has turned to mush.

    Trump has refused to allow witnesses to testify in a secret kangaroo court where Democrats can call witnesses and change rules on the fly while Republicans can call zero witnesses and cannot cross examine Democrat witnesses.

    You're not as stupid as you're acting, are you?
