Democrats Begin Impeachment of Trump

Recommended Posts

Trump impeached by the House for abuse of power

The vote sets the stage for a trial in the Senate, due to begin in early January.
 

For the third time in the nation's history, the House of Representatives voted to impeach a sitting president, following a day-long debate on whether Trump violated his oath in pressuring Ukraine to damage a political opponent.

 

The vote, which was still ongoing, to impeach Trump for abuse of power was almost entirely on party lines

and was to be followed quickly by a second vote on whether Trump obstructed Congress.

Adam Schiff

Donald J. Trump swore an oath to faithfully execute his office and protect and defend the Constitution.

Has he honored this sacred obligation? The evidence is uncontested:

Trump sacrificed our national security to cheat in the next election.

And for that, he must be impeached.

Adam Schift should run for President. 

slogan...

"Lets clean the sheet out of the White House with Schift!"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declined to say when she will transmit the articles of impeachment to the Senate,
 
telling reporters she is waiting to see what process is established in the Senate for a trial.
 
:unsure:

A good thing, she can hold it up as long as she wants to get concessions for a real trial with witnesses and Twump under oath in the Senate.

Saw one commentator and a House Dem who said they could hold it until after the Nov 2020 election if they so chose.

I am beginning to think this is a good move and a page out of Mitch McConnell's own playbook (Merrick Garland).  Hold it over Trump's and the Senate GOPers heads until they become more reasonable.  Trump will still win the final vote, but at least Dems will get in a few shots hopefully.

MSNBC went through a listing of Dem women House members who are in their first terms and voted to impeach.  Lot of very contested races there.  Some are the first Dems in decades from their districts.

South Carolina's Dem Congressman from Charleston area voted to impeach.  He holds a seat that has been firmly GOP since the 80's.  It will be interesting to see if he can hold onto it in 2020.  Speculation is that his vote won't matter by Nov 2020 as much as what he has or has not done for the district.

This sort of brings up that Pelosi and Dem leadership need to focus on helping "weak" Dems to build up what they have done for their districts.

Using poker terminology,  Pelosi just checked-raised Moscow Mitch and he had to use a time-extension card to meeting with Lindsey and other leading GOP Senators to decide what to do.

My guess is that Mitch will refuse to establish the Senate trial 'rules'  (the most important one being if witnesses are called),  and the stalemate will continue until the election. 

I.e. there will be no 'final vote' as it relates to a conviction,  and that is a good-thing for Dems since Mitch and company already said that would be in Trump's favor, regardless of the evidence.

All Trump has to say is, "Losers,  I am your Champion.  I give you a voice"  and you keep  heaping more power and riches upon him.  He's got the braindead in America coming and going.
