    Obviously, the votes for conviction aren't there.

    Just like the GOP House who impeached Clinton knew that there was ZERO chance of Senate Conviction.

    I guess it all boils down to this:

    If the Dems feel that a "Show Trial" (with Zero Chance in the Senate) like the Repubs did to Clinton will help their chances in 2020, then yes.

    If not, then no.

    It is strictly a political calculation.

    The Congress can decide whatever they want, Vox, as grounds to impeach.

    You are not the person who determines the validity of the grounds.

    You think productivity matters to people who think hugs and puppies are all we need?

    Considering those "people" don't think any such thing, your point is merit-less, crank.

    Thanks for advising me......I thought they'd have to check with me.

    :mrgreen:

    The point is, if their "grounds" are ridiculous they will pay dearly for their folly.

    Since (as I said) they have nothing......they will do nothing.

    Except talk a lot.......that's what they do best. Talk.

    Their favorite kinda teen rebellion. Waste all the grown-ups' money on more hugs and puppies. Mortgage, bills, and groceries be damned.

    Your point is without merit. The Dems will do what is best for the People and the party.

    Apologies. I did assume a lot in suggesting they think. Forgive me?

    My approach would (initially) involve several committee hearings and subpoenas.

    The Democrats will do the same thing in 2024 and try to impeach Trump.

    "No grounds"...? That didn't stop them from deliberately starting and funding a fake series of 'revelations' leading to this idiotic 'Russia-hacked-the-election-for-Trump' nonsense. I wouldn't put ANYTHING past them....

    At this point, it's all going to be a quid pro quo between Democrats in the House, and Trump. If Trump doesn't oppose the Democrats' new attempts to impose their 'Socialism-lite' agenda, they won't impeach him. If he does, they'll impeach him.

    But, he's such a rebel that my guess is he really doesn't care if they DO impeach him. Anybody who's been paying attention for the past two years knows that all this "Russia" nonsense is just a bunch of contrived bullshit. Being impeached by this gaggle of radical, America-hating Democrat morons may actually make something of a 'hero' out of him to most of us!

    Yet nobody has ever been able to display this faking. Because you just made it all up. It's hat you do. Do you do it out of Stalinist devotion, or do you get paid?

    The detachment from reality there is amusing. Yep, you're a Trump fan. How many convictions now? And things are just getting started, being that the corrupt congress has been actively obstructing justice. Hopefully, we'll see Nunes in jail for that.

    You people of relative morality -- anything goes for your own side -- will always hate those of us with an absolute sense of right and wrong. The shining light of our moral absolutism affects you much like sunlight burning a vampire, so you lash out at the source of the pain.

    Of course they will. They have wanted to ruin him since the day he won the election and they won't let anything stop them now that they can do it.

    Silly stalinist-like devotion to Trump is obvious in this thread.

    The Dems will not impeach him. Unless . . . he fires or seriously limits Mueller. Then the Dems can subpoena the Mueller files, and if Trump claims executive privilege, watch what happens next.

    You are right. Democrats in the House can impeach him for any reason they want including bad hair. All they need is a majority vote to impeach and in January they will have those votes.

    My opinion it would be political suicide to attempt an impeachment without any teeth. The Dems have finally got a bit of clout in DC now and how they use it will determine their collective futures. If they attempt this show (as that is all it would be) Trump is going to employ his new Conservative Attorney General (hence why he has Whitaker in there now) to take off the gloves and hunt down every slimy deal, discussion, and money trail the Dems have left out there for the last 10 years. It would be a blood fest and the only winner would be Trump.

    On the other hand, If the Dems get smart and use their new found power to reach across the isle, make a few deals, score some wins, they will have an opportunity to gander some support come 2020. If the country sees 2 more years of resist and nothing to show for it while Trump continues to march on with his Senate and EO powers, it will all but guarantee his reelection.

    Thats how I see it.

    All evidence to the contrary, what have they done in the last 2 years other than the resist movement. Was that best for the people? Can you provide us with a list of Dem accomplishments since the inauguration?
