    To Impeach all they have to do is vote on the Articles. How they get there is entirely up to the Democrats. There is no reason to vote, it will not give their subpoena any more authority to compel documents and testimony than it already has.

    Mueller was not working for the House nor did he report to the House. The Republican controlled the House and the Democrats have had no investigatory power as the minority. They have been in control for less than a year.

    Sure, but there is no reason NOT to vote either. If they believe what they're saying, of course, it would seem that this vote would benefit them. If they don't have that faith in their own position, neither do I and, after 2+ years of Russian collusion, neither should anyone else, IMO.

    "They don't want to vote" "they don't have to vote" isn't enough, not after watching the same thing play out with the Russian Collusion "Investigation". They did this with Mueller and they're doing the same thing again, IMO. "If we find something, fine, if we don't, fine, either way we get to mud-sling"

    That's nothing but a stunt and the onus is on them to prove otherwise. Believe them if you'd like, their track record leads me to not believe a word of it.

    The demand they hold a vote before they can interview anyone is the stunt.

    The DOJ investigated the Russian's sweeping interference and collusion by Trumps campaign, not the GOP led house. The Dems have had control of the House less than a year. The Administration is stonewalling the House's investigation relating to the Mueller Report too.

    And every one of them tear apart the dem story.... :auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg::auiqs.jpg:

    ALL NINE witnesses, when questioned after democrats selectively leak information, tell the public that is not what they said and have to correct the lies spewn by Schiff...

    And these fools think the American populace is too stupid to notice this....

    Wrong.... TO even begin impeachment anything the house must authorize it as a body... The Constitution is perfectly clear on this matter.."The House of Representatives SHALL.... have the sole power of impeachment." There is nothing ambiguous about it..

    Really? Can you point to the line in our Constitution that says the entire body must vote on the an Impeachment Inquiry before any Article of Impeachment gets drawn up, debated and voted on? It's not there. Just like the requirement that the Senate must hold hearings on SC nominees by the President, it's not there. Mitch was under no constitutional obligation to do so, and neither is Nancy. Get over it.

    So we're going stunt for stunt. I'd agree that the stonewalling is a maneuver meant to smoke dems out of their position and they could easily put it to bed by holding that vote.

    And yet, they don't. until they do and make it official this is looks to me like nothing but more of the same nonsense they've been perpetrating since Trump took office.
