    I am concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger. If the House proceeds solely on the Ukrainian allegations, this impeachment would stand out among modern impeachments as the shortest proceeding, with the thinnest evidentiary record, and the narrowest grounds ever used to impeach a president. That does not bode well for future presidents who are working in a country often sharply and, at times, bitterly divided.

    I'm glad Pelosi kept it clean - Trump obviously committed many more impeachable crimes but there is no need to muddy the waters here and further confuse the millions of voters too stupid or inattentive to get it

    still think it's amusing Trump actually admitted his abuse of power by releasing that July 25th call summary...………."I'd like you to do us a favor THOUGH..."

    shot a torpedo into his own bow like any fuckin moron would

    there can be more than one Impeachment of trump

    say the senate sucks his balls instead of doing their constitutional duty to protect the nation and constitution.


    we will Impeach him on some of his other crimes


    then the senate will have to suck trumps balls again



    and again



    and again


    and again


    he committed LOTS of Impeachable crimes

    first clinton, now trump, the two major political idiot groups have made it common practice to impeach presidents they don't like...............let the war begin.
    The war on crime, war on drugs, war on terror, and now the war on opiods.............there's a reason they call it a war. So you idiots will easily accept the collateral damage of innocents
