Forcing a vote on impeachment would put Democrats in pro-Trump districts and states in an impossible position, forcing them to take a vote that they do not want. In the bargain it would drown out the Democratic presidential contenders, save for that of former VP Biden who paradoxically, given his son's cloudy personal history, does not want the attention.Overall, a vote on impeachment to instruct the committees to conduct an investigation would result in a long dragged out process that would not likely sway the partisans on either side and would turn off the middle voters who don't tend to pay attention. The net result, then paradoxically, would be to tip the election in the long run to Mr. Trump.The advantage to the country then being that this habitual turning to impeachment to avoid policy debates and the hard work of persuading voters would be at last discredited. Impeachment would then go back to being what it should be - a tool to be used rarely and only in extremis. To be sure, it would also leave the nation with the odious Mr. Trump. However, his crimes are not clear - a "whistleblower" report where the witness is only reporting rumors is not exactly standing on solid legal ground. Hence the point about "reasonable doubt." There are, suffice to say, ample grounds for doubting reasonably.In any case, Mr. Trump is what the country gets when the country decides that standards of propriety no longer matter. See also his twin, Mr. Clinton. As Mencken said, "Democracy is the theory that the people should get what they want - and get it good and hard." Just so.
Type-o:This - "... it is why he was disbarred, losing his Arkansas law license and being forced to pay Ms. Leiwinsky a tidy some of money."Should read - "... it is why he was disbarred, losing his Arkansas law license and being forced to pay Ms. LEWINSKY a tidy SUM of money."
True. That is the reason why america has never had a democrat president.Oh wait
@-Asca- Even when they did they were democrats who projected at least some of those qualities.. Not these neutered little man babies who go on national television and pretend to cry because they think it appeals to women voters.
You have mistaken borderline narcissism for projection of strength, confidence and optimism.Do you think that bullying Mexican immigrants and making empty warnings to other countries is strength?That asking Russians to spy on fellow Americans is confidence?That kicking out women who want to ask him something or speak up is confidence?No no no , he is spoiled little brat stuck in a old body.If he is , as you say strong and confident than domocrats are heroes to stand up against the no.1 man in USA which is so strong.
@Nafree You're projecting the same weakness right now. Crying about bullying. Nobody respects it. You sound weak. And racism? LOL Your fucking FRONTRUNNER voted for a war that massacred hundreds of thousands of the brown skinned people you fucking liars keep screaming that you care so much about. You are virtue signaling cowards. Sit down and accept your rightful place on the ground.
See , I'd think it was obvious that I am not a resident of USA , also my dear I actually like being with both feet on the ground, where you see things as they are.You should really educate yourself from books instead of television. I'm European and we were and are against your oil and Dollar wars.
@Nafree all politicians are corrupted in some way.
@Nafree all the things you stated about him are either misrepresented or didn't happen at all, taking liberal media as a source of valid information is one of the best ways to make yourself look stupid in an argument.
@Nafree ILLEGAL immigrants are the only one targeted.
@ Syrian_survivorUsing media as a source of information is stupid to start with.I am not educated by media I'm stating what I'm seeing not what they tell me
@Nafree where do you get that information from then?
@Nafree Don't care what shithole country you're from. You call weak sniveling war crime supporters "heroes".
Just because people don't like him or disagree with him doesn't mean he's a bad president and shouldn't be president but again I don't know much of what's been going on. 🤷
They just can't accept that he won in 2016 and it bugs the hell out of them
@itsthatgurl Yeah I don't really ubderstand why people hate him so much. He's just doing his job
intimidation, asking for for illegal help, cover up, making america into a joke... the list goes on.
this says everything: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XZ4ylHOqtk there can be no doubt of his guilt.
@Sabretooth Except he hasn't done any of those things.
@gotc147 than he he wouldn't be threatened. as it stands, he is. you threaten because you yourself are threatened.
@Sabretooth Oh how cute, you're new to the politics game.Trump isn't going anywhere, because he didn't do what the Democrats are saying he did.Joe Biden on the other hand, there is far stronger evidence that he did.
@gotc147 and you're just a sad, blind trumptard who can't see the truth when it's at eye level
@gotc147 it's honestly just pathetic
@Sabretooth Talking about yourself?
@gotc147 trump's cultist. He could reveal himself as a Muslim-his followers would gladly follow along.
@Sabretooth Yup, talking about yourself, Trump could cure cancer and you'd still be screaming orange man bad.Fool.
@gotc147 and like trump, you have trouble with reading. no, i was talking about his cultist. yeah? well let me me know when he does... or anything that is noteworthy... and not because he's just making a fool of himself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7JvFMpw_ro . plenty of psychiatrists and mental health experts agree he is dangerous-there is even a book with over 30 talking about this.
more than a few reasons. his unrealistically ignorant-as is his administration, only interested in his own interest-hence the situation, lying, stonewalling investigations, committing crimes-like his quid pro quo to urkrain and attempt in china-list goes on.

If Democratic establishment knew what was good for them, they wouldn't be out in full force smearing Tulsi, the candidate with the best chance of beating Trump.
Correct a lot of Republicans support Tulsi
@jasion Which is required to win in the general election. Fingers crossed those republicans vote in the Dem primary. Not hard to register as democrat, vote for Tulsi, then re-register as Republican.
Tusli isn't enough of a whiney feminist victim for Democrats to support her. Tulsi also has muscle, she's a war veteran, she's level headed and she gets along with republicans. So they're going to touch her. Tulsi Gabbar has the personality every man dreams of, the bitches on the left aren't going to let us have that.
One could also argue that the "take care clause" in Article 2, Section 3 compels him to make sure that information pertinent to Biden allegation be divulged.
All I heard you say there is that the president is actually a dictator because you believe that "executive power" is synonymous with "literally anything." The Constitution specifically tells what each branch of government can do. It does not give you some carte blanche ability to say "well executive power means the power to execute anything he wants."That you and Trump say "The Constitution lets me do literally anything" doesn't actually make that true.
@holograph I'm sorry, but I really cannot help you with your lack of comprehension. The President has federal executive power (Article 2, Section 1). The President has a duty to faithfully execute the laws under the Constitution, like investigating the allegations of federal wrongdoing by the Bidens. (Article 2, Section 3). The President has free speech rights, which discussing current events is. Not sure what is so hard to understand here. The only Quid Pro Quo was Joe Biden's recorded admission before the CFR.
@Sabretooth can’t believe Trump is threatening the whistleblower.
them and anyone who's supplying the whistleblower with the evidence against him. if you have to use threats-it's because you're scared-if you are innocent-what's there to be afraid of?
@Sabretooth That’s true!
i knew he was insane when he was running for office. the longer this madman remains-the more these lives are in danger.
@Sabretooth What bothers me are his delusional supporters. Madman would just be madman living in New York if not for the delusional people who voted for him.
agreed. he insulted them live... and they refuse to accept it: he should've been abandoned and locked away on this very day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTACH1eVIaA
turn CNN off.
@poeticjustice10313 Done a long time ago. Cannot avoid hearing people talk. Perhaps I should move to a monastery, but even there, there would be no peace from the media...
Obama was far worse for world peace than Trump, if anything Trump has moved us closer to world peace.
On what grounds? That you don't like him? That's not good enough. There's no legal standing to make impeachment.
Sup Sue, I personally think it's pointless because all politicians are corrupt to some degree.
@Jennifer_32 Are you talking to me?In that case, I can only agree. You need to have a lack of self esteem and decency to even want to be in politics.
Yes, I'm talking to ya Sue. Also you gonna update your avatar and banner yet? Any fictional characters ya like? I normally change my avy and banner to some random cartoon character. Makes my login look nice.
@Jennifer_32 I used to have a banner and avatar but took it down. At that time when I registered, a guy did it for me and put up the portrait of a random lady. I found out later that this girl was, let's say, of low morals, and then I had it taken down and that guy is no longer considered a friend of mine.I am perfectly happy leaving it as it is. When the picture was up, I had dozens of follow requests and now that I don't have any, I get hardly any. I have more than 300 pending follow requests that I just ignore.I don't want to have to fight those requests off just because of an avatar I put up.
Sue good on you. But on the other hand it does show how much power you a woman have over men. Just like that so many men wanted to connect with you. Many of them would have kissed up to you and did whatever you told them to do. Also Sue what is mho and why can't I get it as high as yours?
@Jennifer_32 Well, I am not seeking fame and if people only want to follow you solely because of a picture you have, then I don't see it as a compliment for something I have achieved but just for the looks. As for the MHO, it takes a long time to get a high number. You have to give answers that the asker or GAG thinks is worth rewarding with an MHO.
