Let the investigations play out. We need all the evidence documented and marshaled.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Nancy has grown soft in her old age. As long as she remains speaker, nothing will happen.

Her real agenda is that because she will run for President, she is afraid that to impeach Trump and failing to get him out of office may ruin her political career. Also, she is afraid of alienating a certain set of voters if she impeached Trump.

Clearly self-serving.

no Mueller or Russians or obstruction anymore? What happened?

-4 ( +5 / -9 )

What investigations? emoluments case thrown out of court. trump organization case quietly ended. Crazy department store lady disappeared. Mueller delaying to even testify about his own report. Steele dossier debunked. Epstein is Bill’s guy. What’s left?

It's called patience. It's also called reality, which is to say that just because you don't hear/read about it, doesn't mean it no longer exists. (My dog is convinced that that is untrue.)

Letting the investigations run their courses allows us to amass the evidence while giving Donny's mouth and Twitter more time to produce further evidence.

See how that works? It only works because Donny cannot control himself or be bothered to make himself minimally competent.

… one of them, Rep Katie Hill, D-Calif., said Wednesday of impeachment. She said "if and when" the House votes on impeaching Trump, it should happen when "we can make sure our constituents understand and can get behind" the move.

This seems to contradict the democrats position that Americans hate this President. Just the other day, in the press conference of the fab 4, Ilhan said every single American was behind them. Also, the media constantly paint a picture of America fed up with Trump. If all of this is true, wouldn't constituents already be behind impeachment? The congress has a duty to impeach Trump if their is a right to do so; not doing it because you're afraid of losing votes is clear derelict of duty and example of pandering.

I hope Mueller drops a bombshell so we can get this impeachment show on the road. If not, then let it go already. The fab 4 need to stop fighting for illegal immigrants harder than they are fighting for the oppressed pocs in their impoverished districts. It would be nice if they just got to work.

No, because impeachment is harmful to our society. Many people, me included, prefer Donny not be impeached and just kicked out the door in 2020 because it's less harmful to our society.

That said, if the evidence is there, Donny should be impeached and convicted.

@mrnoidal Ilhan said every single American was behind them. 

Do you have a source for this? Or is this something picked up from Breitbart, RT or one of the other numerous far-right outlets.

 the media constantly paint a picture of America fed up with Trump

Fox and the other Murdoch outlets, Sinclair Media, etc. etc. paint a different picture. Though Trump and his far-right followers want to restrict the free, for-profit media, outlets are still 'free', assuming they don't break laws, to print what they want. Why are Trump supporters so anti-free enterprise?

4 ( +7 / -3 )

@blacklble no Mueller or Russians or obstruction anymore?

Mueller meets with Congress on the 24th. It's interesting that so many of Trump's most ardent supporters are opposed to the findings of US intelligence agencies that have reported Russia's 'meddling' in US politics, and so supportive of Russia. But that makes sense when these Trump supporters want a 'strong' executive controlling the country. They push for a Russia-like far-right, ultra-nationalist regime. And they want an executive who's from their same demographic.

yeah. Just watch the press conference.

@mrnoidall yeah. Just watch the press conference.

In other words, just another flame. It's not surprising that the most dishonest president in modern (all?) history has attracted so many like-minded followers.

Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot pursuing impeachment on trivial grounds like this. Voters will turn in them thus ensuring Trump's re-election in 2020.

Democrats ought to focus in offering the public sound economic and border security policies that will improve the lives of the average citizen.

Just the other day, in the press conference of the fab 4, Ilhan said every single American was behind them.

False. At no point in the conference, did Ilhan Omar say 'Every single American was behind them.' The closest would be Ayanna Pressley saying that they've heard from support from 'every single corner of the country.'

In fact, what 'hateful words' did Ilhan say in the press conference? Well, there were these pretty damning ones:

"EVERY SINGLE STATEMENT THAT WE MAKE IS FROM A PLACE OF EXTREME LOVE FOR EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY. IT IS PART OF THE MANDATE OF WHY WE RAN FOR OFFICE AND WHY WE GOT ELECTED."

Trump was and is never gonna be impeached. But keeptrying Dems by all means - youre haemoraging votes!

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

There is a growing desire for impeachment proceedings to begin against President Trump, but Americans are still split overall on what to do after the release of the Mueller report, an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll finds.

A slim majority of Americans (52%) want one of the following: to begin impeachment proceedings (22%), to continue investigations into potential political wrongdoing of Trump (25%) or to publicly reprimand him — that is, censure (5%).

Thirty-nine percent say no further action should be taken and that the current investigations should end. That is largely reflective of Trump's base, as Trump maintains a 41% approval rating in the poll

What.. like it was with the Mueller report? Lol

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

332-95 against impeachment in the Dem majority house. Give it up.

What.. like it was with the Mueller report? Lol

Yes, with the glaring exception that the dem investigations won't be stifled by a political appointee named Barr. Lol.

332-95 against impeachment in the Dem majority house. Give it up.

We'll give it up as soon as Donny starts acting like an adult.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

That means 95 people are in places where a glass of water would get elected if it identified as Democrat. The rest know they will be voted out of office if they agree with this nonsense.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

So now you are impeaching him because he “isn’t an adult”? Wow how far you have fallen from the “but treason!” days

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

I knew that was going to happen, Democrats are full of hot helium.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

Impeachment again? Dems do you know how dumb you look?

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

It’s clear what Trump’s plan is - split the Democrat vote...at whatever cost.

I hope journalists will keep their eyes on the ball though as the timing of this issue is also designed to distract from certain prosecutions that are currently taking place (for members of the Trump campaign), as well as the Epstein case in which Trump might be heavily connected.

It seems the dems are once, twice, threee tiiimes the looosers.

Sadly, they haven’t for the last 12 years

Does Deplorable Donnie deserved to be impeached - absolutely. But with Mitch "I made a pact with the Devil" McConnell in the Senate, there's little chance of that happening.

Focus on all the fifth that is Trump-world. Donnie started the whole "go back home" theater this week just to keep all the bombshells on his relationship with his buddy Epstein off the news. Today a tape surfaces of the two ogling the Buffalo Bills cheerleaders - two pervs of a feather...

Then we learn Trump and Epstein have a two man, 28 female (teenager?) dinner together...I wonder what the dessert was...

Expect the Dimwit to utter more clearly racist and deplorable comments to keep them, not his creepy bromance with Epstein, in the news...

Just call him Dodging Donnie...or Epstein's bro...

The problem Republican have is they’ve backed themselves into a corner where they think any criticism of Trump means tacit support of Democrats.

That’s not the case. It’s possible to reject the racism, hate, and lies of Trump while remaining a Republican.

Some issues are bipartisan, and it seems that almost all Republicans have sold their morals.

Just look at Lindsay Graham’s comments pre and post election to see how far these people are willing to go to keep power.

The republican representatives are now afraid to go against Trump out of fear they will be Trump Twitter targets just like the four congress women. Democracy is the loser.

Ogling is a crime now? Wow, most men should be locked up then. There’s also a police record of Trump kicking out Epstein from his Mara Lago estate for touching women inappropriately.

@thelongtermer - If you can’t see how his comments are racist, it’s you that has the problem not everyone else.

Telling people from minority groups to ‘go back’ to your countries - when 3 of the 4 were in fact born in the US, the other a naturalised citizen - is the epitome of racism.

Add it together with his history of targeting people almost exclusively from minority groups for criticism and you see a pattern of racist behaviour.

Just own it. Don’t say it isn’t what it is - it’s as clear as it can be. Just own it and say you agree.

Green's measure was the third resolution to impeach Trump he has brought to the House floor since 2017. 

And they all failed! The first two failed because the House was controlled by Republicans. So, wha' happen? Thought the Dems were certain they could impeach Trump since they now control the House. The 137 Democrats who voted against impeachment are traitors! Pelosi must be wringing her hands in frustration.

Nancy has grown soft in her old age. As long as she remains speaker, nothing will happen. Her real agenda is that because she will run for President...., 

And when she runs for President, will the Democrats replace her with AOC as the new House Speaker in 2020? Sure would love to see that happen. Imagine what AOC and her Gang of Four will do.

How many times has Bill been on the Lolita Express 27 times....that’s a lot.

Then there’s also Bill, Menendez, Wiener....

Nobody can be impeached for stupid, hateful, racist words, and nobody can be sent back to their parent's or grandparent's home country for having a different opinion from the president.

It looks as if the first person that the socialists, and Democrats, need to remove from office would be Nancy "Queen of the Political Swamp" Pelosi. It's Pelosi who is preventing Saikat Chakrabarti's puppet, Ocasio-Cortez, from completely dominating the Democrat/socialist Party.

Yes, because it's more important to get rid of people who speak out against racism, than it is to get rid of the people who speak racism.

Seems legit. Solid 'pub logic.

Perhaps you haven't heard? Nancy "Queen of the Political Swamp" Pelosi is the one who is preventing the socialist, and Democrats, from impeaching Trump.
