Urgent? Based on a conversation that has to be misconstrued to make any possible wrongdoing?
Misrepresentation of what happened.
So he didn’t use the power of his office to get an ally to look into a political rival?
The House voted to investigate Benghazi. Why are House dems not voting on their secret and seditious impeachment inquiry? Is it because they have neither the evidence or the guts to do so?
When the crime amounts to seeking foreign aid in affect the outcome of an election, doesn’t it seem like “Just let the election decide.” amounts to just letting him do the crime and see how successful he is with it?
Yeah you can't really investigate things into existence. In order to impeach first and foremost you need a crime.
No he asked a fellow world leader to look into the potential of illegal activity on the part of Americans working in Ukraine after hearing about suspicious activity.
Pure coincidence that Biden is running for president! Meanwhile it was his personal lawyer and his goons who were actually breaking laws. Odd that trump didn’t ask for an investigation into them!
I disagree. Guess we’ll let congress decide.
The house has the rights to set the rules for impeachment.
Funny how he didn’t give a rats ass about this prior to believing Biden would likely be his political rival in the next presidential campaign. It’s almost as if that motivated him in some way. But to what end? Mysterious...
Exactly... my point as always people need to stop running around assuming guilt.
Trump has always had a real problem with criminals! Not their crimes, just that they’ll snitch on him lol
Again, we cannot assume guilt.
Anyone who wants to assume the role of judge over a president, should run for the Senate or shut up.
Lock him up!
They're not setting house rules, they're abusing them.
Ok, so you hate America and the rule of law, got it.
No, just hypocrites
I don’t have to assume guilt. He’s admitted to and done things, on national television, I believe are crimes. Guided by my eyes and moral compass, he is guilty, and congress will decide if that is the case.
Im not rich enough for all that.
I don’t have to assume he’s guilty. My eyes and moral compass have already made that clear.
The framers gave them the power to set the rules. Whether you believe their rules are abusive or not is irrelevant. They have the right to set them.
No we can assume what we want. Maybe we’ll be wrong. It’s fine, I’ve been wrong before. Rare, but it happens.
Sorry their guilt was proven. They are skating for the same reason Trump will skate they all know if one goes down they all go down.
We have a case of mutually assured destruction.
Wow you sure abandoned your love of due process lol
House rules do not override the Constitution. A summary of the factors involved:
1) The "Inquiry" is Constitutionally Invalid, and Violates Basic Due Process Rights, and the Separation of Powers.
2) The Invalid "Impeachment Inquiry" Plainly Seeks To Reverse the Election of 2016 and to Influence the Election of 2020.
3) There is no Legitimate Basis for the "Impeachment Inquiry"; Instead, the Committees' Actions Raise Serious Questions.
