Of course there is lots of talk about impeachment these days….both pro and con….matters not….if the evidence is there for impeachment then bring it forward….do your duty and then move it on to the trial in the US Senate….
Will the people involved look at the evidence or will they just hang on party lines and ignore any evidence presented. My opinion they will not do anything to buck their base….whether the president is guilty or not….the money and re-election is far more important that the nation or the process.
The Office of the Speaker has issued a fact sheet for impeachment….it is 4 pages…I think most everyone can spare a few moments of concentration to learn the facts…(I could be wrong)……
“President Trump has betrayed his oath of office, betrayed our national security and betrayed the integrity of our elections for his own personal political gain,” the document argues.
It goes on to list what Pelosi’s office calls proof of a “pressure campaign” and “cover up” by Trump related to Ukraine. The sheet includes quotes from Trump and the anonymous whistleblower who filed a complaint regarding Trump’s July 25 phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which he pressed for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden

I do not care about your personal likes or dislikes…..read the sheet and tell me which of the points is wrong and why….I am sure that more “evidence” will come to light but this is what we have so far…..
I am sure that Lindsey will become the darling of the GOP after his “resolution”……
A leading Senate ally of President Trump introduced a resolution Thursday condemning the Democratic-run House for pursuing an “illegitimate impeachment inquiry” and demanding that Republicans be given more chances to question witnesses. The nonbinding resolution announced by GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina gives Senate Republicans a chance to show support for Trump at a moment when the president is urging his GOP allies to fight harder for him as the House impeachment probe gathers momentum, the AP reports. Graham said the House process so far has been “a star-chamber-type inquiry” and accused Democrats of using it to damage Trump. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is a leading co-sponsor of the measure.
“If you can drive down a president’s poll numbers by having proceedings where you selectively leak information, where the president who’s the subject of all this is pretty much shut out, God help future presidents,” Graham told reporters. Rather than robustly attacking the substance of the evidence investigators are accumulating, Republicans have focused on asserting that House impeachment proceedings have been secretive and unfair. With lawmakers from both parties present, House investigators have been questioning diplomats and administration officials behind closed doors for several weeks. Democrats are expected to soon hold public hearings. Should the House vote to impeach Trump, both sides would be able to question witnesses during the trial the GOP-run Senate would then commence. Graham’s resolution calls on House Democrats to move forward with a vote so House Republicans and Trump himself can participate in the process, CNN reports.
The Dems will soon vote on the process…..
Democrats plan to hold a House vote on impeachment after all. The resolution won’t authorize the impeachment inquiry that’s already begun, the Wall Street Journal reports, but this will be the first formal vote affirming it. It will establish a formal process and next steps, Democrats said. The measure will allow for the disclosure of deposition transcripts; Republicans have complained that the process has lacked transparency. It also will spell out President Trump’s due-process rights in the inquiry. “We are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump Administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote to Democrats
I have noticed that Graham and all the GOP sycophants are pissing and moaning about the process….not one has gone to a camera a defended any of the accusations…..there is an old saying….”if you cannot defend the act then attack the process”…..and the GOP is doing just fine on that level.
It is time to start to wrap this up……the American people needs to concentrate on the 2020 vote and any diversion will keep them from making a proper choice.
