I hope this farce of an accusation and 'trial' will end soon so that the president and Congress can get back to focusing on what they were elected to do, serve the people. The economy, job creation, poverty, etc need thier attention.

Reasons for impeaching him: he has grossly violated his oath of office, violated the mandates of the Constitution, and is an all-around terrible human being.

Can't think of any reasons not to impeach him.

He did not.

Thanks for your opinion. That's not a reason to impeach him.

Can't think of any reasons to impeach him. Calling Ukraine's President Zelensky to ask him to look into corruption, with Zelensky himself saying there was no pressure, is no reason to impeach. Plus the U.S. is far better off than it was 3 years ago.

By the way, whatever happened to the charges of bribery? They are not included in the articles of Impeachment Lite. And when is the Senate going to receive them? Democrats are clowns.

Anyway, this is all moot. He's not going to be removed from office, he's going to continue to work for the American people and he's going to be re-elected in a landslide in Nov.

I loathe Trump, and I don't know how you people can continue to hold him in such high regard in the face of all the evidence. But on this I have to agree with you. The reasons stated for going ahead with the impeachment action are, imo, exaggerated, and it's a tactical mistake.

I hope I'm wrong, though.

The radical Dems have shot themselves, repeatedly, in the foot since day 1 of the inauguration. So funny watching them cannibalize each other during their joke debates. This queen loon Warren takes the prize.

Buffoonery and incompetence; nothing like those traits to help get you elected!

nobody likes a loser.

Trump for 2020!

At the heart of the impeachment case is testimony by current and former officials alleging an extraordinary effort that went outside official channels to pressure Ukraine to announce a corruption investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden,

Not paying too much detailed attention to this clown show, but is this claim not false right off the bat? I have read the transcript. He is NOT asking to investige Biden, he is asking to restart the investigation of the corrupt Berisma company. If Biden is involved with Berisma, that would be Bidens problem, not Trumps. Why is nobody pointing this out?

Trump gets to own his impeachment

It won’t mean anything and this will blow over so quickly. This might be the best thing that could happen to Trump, boosting his popularity, galvanizing the Republican bass, economy is looking fantastic.

Thank you, Nancy and Schiff.
