Waste of time and energy.  These clowns should be focusing on getting money to the needy, supporting the states in their pandemic efforts and looking at ways of otherwise helping the economy.  Instead they are engaged in silly political gestures.

Orange is not a clear and present danger.  He is almost gone. 

Us politics is broken and its politicians are more useless and corrupt and self serving than they have ever been.

Pence says he will not move to expel Trump

Pence probably will run for president in 2024 and doesn't want to risk losing Trump's base.

"There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution."

Nutshell. Trump needs to be held accountable for all the damage he's caused the country to have, for making it even more divided, for all the virus deaths and the damages done to the economy, among others.

More than 20 republicans tomorrow will vote for impeachment. Trump is a danger to the present and future. Needs to be accountable for his actions. Spreading of false conspiracies leading to the storming of the congress, with more to come on the 20th, when Trump had promised a peaceful handover of power.

He’s already ousted. Pence was never going to become a great hero suddenly. Double impeachment, even if just symbolic, that’s a stain for the ages.

What follows after that is not going to be good news for trump, he won’t slither away without facing the music.

Turns out those gas masks in the House were to guard from Republicans:

If Mitch says that He will vote to impeach, Trump will be done. The GOP Dam will break and Trump will be forced out of office.

Momentum is building. Trump is toast.

Not surprising that Pence doesn’t have the moxie to move against Trump. Pence isn’t even strong enough to have a meal alone with a female.

Trump will not be impeached by the Senate before the 20th, when he's out of office.

With McConnell favoring impeachment, this one could have some legs! Banning Trump from running again would be such a breath of fresh air.

Just because they impeach Trump doesn't mean they can't do other stuff. I expect when Biden and Kamela are sworn in and the Georgia senators take their seats, that the Dems will push for higher payments to the needy.

Orange is not a clear and present danger. He is almost gone. 

The chance to completely get rid of Trump should not be thrown away.

Mike Pence needs to grow a set his man left him high and dry...Trump doesn't care about anyone but himself he is mentally unstable and needs to be removed from office...

Pence is the true face of the religious right, no morals, no courage.

trump and his klan will go into the rubbish bin soon and forgotten in a year, They’ll be busy fighting the courts to have any relevance.

But pence will be remembered for a long long time as a pretentious coward who put his own interest above that of the country!!!!

Impeachment a “vote of conscience.”

Good, now GOP without conscience will be heralded all over the world.

A year from now, the established elites that use the left as useful idiots will have: opened the borders and flooded America with "dreamers"; tanked the economy through excessive spending and poor trade deals; defunded the police, leading to a startling rise in crime; started numerous foreign interventions and conflicts; morphed schools into re-education camps; censored all news sources so they can manipulate the narrative; jacked taxes to obscene levels; and kowtowed to China whenever possible. Their businesses will continue to grow and their coffers swell in off-shore tax havens.

Look beyond the kabuki and invest accordingly.

Pence is too chicken to invoke the 25th because he wants to maintain his cred with the fascists and dittoheads. And he's too cowardly to resume POTUS responsibilities even if just one week.

Nonetheless he may get it, like it or not. Trump is just not acceptable, not for a single day longer.
