    I wonder just how many Dems will vote to impeach. Its a lose, lose and they all know it.

    They are politicians and they take care of number one. Themselves. They know this a lose, lose and you can bet they don't want their names associated with it.

    Should be interesting. LOL

    The corruption rampant throughout the ameican economic/political/"legal" system is intuitively obvious to even the most casual of observers and the so called president is a laughing stock on the world stage.

    The Constitution does not define or limit that to a crime but deliberately leaves the matter open to interpretation as basically, "misbehaving" in a way damaging to the office and the nation so much as to lose the confidence of the country. But that does not mean just anything, and the bar is very high that impeachment is seen as a last resort to reign in a president who is terribly out of control to the point of no choice. The problem is that most reasonable people agree that nothing Trump has done reaches that bar, and at worst, if he sought to make Biden look bad by capitalizing on his crimes in Ukraine, that still doesn't lessen or change what Biden did and Biden needs to answer for that at least as much as Trump! Especially if he could end up the next president.

    The charge of Bribery is preposterous: at best, it is but one of 10,000 examples of what presidents do all the time between nations bartering deals, and the charge of Obstruction is almost equally as bad considering how little impact anything Trump did affected Ukraine or the aid, the fact that aid is being delayed and withheld all over the world, and that if it was a ploy to harm a guy that is not even nominated as a candidate yet, THE POLLS SURE DON'T SHOW THE EFFECT. Biden is still the front-runner.

    This was both bad timing and a bad show for the Democrats, for not only will it almost certainly not remove him from office, but it has widened the divisions between people and further clouded an already over-hyped political process to where Impeachment has been reduced from being an extraordinary solution for egregious acts to now a choice we will consider any time one party simply doesn't like the policies or style of any given president, especially one which is soon going to have to rerun for office again anyway.

    And that has simply made the Democrats look cheap and dirty with faux outrage and indignation over a president they have fiercely opposed from the start.

    I disagree, but the Left can proceed because they look childish to everyone.

    read Federalist papers #65
    what's a HIGH misdemeanor?

    a high, crime and misdemeanor, is a breach of the public's trust, an abuse of power.... it does not require a codified statute.... in fact we had no legal statutes until 60 plus years after the constitution was written.... what did we do for impeachment before then?

    Not all crimes with legal statutes that are broken, are impeachable offenses...

    As example, A govt official in high power would not be impeached for not getting their dog, dog tags that were required by law.... or for not paying the IRS all the taxes due, or for releasing floating balloons in to the sky, if that was illegal....

    Correct, it’s a kangaroo court sham.

    Loss of public trust??? Is that why Democrats are terrified to wait 11 months for the election?

    You mean besides the illegal solicitation of foreign assistance in our election, the illegal withholding of military aid, and obstruction of a congressional inquiry? Besides those things?

    Do you folks have collective amnesia? Cuz you can't seem to keep these simple facts in your heads.
