    Impeachment Hearings are On

    This afternoon, slurring her words and looking like she was three sheets in the wind, Nancy Pelosi gave the go ahead for impeachment hearings. They have no evidence and not a leg to stand on, but I guess we are going to have to go through this thing after all.

    At least they're doing it now and we'll have it done before the 2020 campaign gets cranked up.

    On a personal note, I hope it loses the Democrats the House by a huge margin, costs them all their open seats in the Senate, Nancy is sent packing, and President Trump wins all 50 states. That's almost certainly too much to ask for. But it would be sweet sweet justice.

    did they actually hold a vote to begin an investigation? I'm pretty sure that has to happen FIRST

    No, but AOC and her gang are demanding that the process go forward. If she has a vote and it is voted down--hopefully--she appeases the Squad and company, but gives her at risk members cover when they are able to say they voted no.

    Anything can happen, so we just don't know at this point. It is absolutely nuts though. I just hope they push it so far, most Americans are as disgusted as I am and the GOP regains the house for President Trump's last four years. I would love to see what he could accomplish with a Congress who would work with him. He didn't have that the first two years because there were so many neocons and RINOS who constantly threw monkey wrenches into the works plus the deep state in the FBI and State Dept. determined to eject him. And this last year with the Dems in the House majority, we've seen nothing but attack after attack after attack in their effort to destroy him. Next year probably won't be any better.

    well, I could be wrong, but it's my understanding that they actually have to have a vote to even start the inquiry

    and even if the GOP retakes the House, it would only be for 2 years till the next congressional election

    Supposed to release the transcript of this phone call shortly. If the President of the Ukraine agrees. Dems would have been wise to wait on the release before jumping the gun...

    The Ukranian leader has already agreed to release of the transcript along with his comment that he doesn't know why this conversation is any big deal. Evenso, I think it sets a terrible precedent forcing a President to reveal what should be a private and privileged conversation with a foreign leader. With all these supposed 'leaks' that in my opinion are treasonous, I imagine it is making it difficult for President Trump to have any candid discussions by telephone with other leaders at all. And that could put national security and well being at serious risk.

    At any rate, the whistleblower now apparently says he had no first hand knowledge of the conversation, was reporting hearsay, and he has strong political ties to another candidate.

    With the release of the transcript...there goes the hopes of AOC and the gang for any real chance of impeachment.

    Isn't it amusing how the old guard of the party if willing to bow to the demands of these children disguised as Congress critter? Goes to show their candidates have nothing to offer other than another helping of hatred for the radicals to feed upon.

    I wish but from what I'm seeing on Twitter the Democrats are doubling down and demanding impeaching because the President mentioned the previous investigation of Biden in that conversation and suggested Zelensky should look into that.

    However I am also seeing evidence from credible sources that Congressional Democrats wrote the previous Ukranian president in May 2018 demanding that they investigate President Trump. That couldn't have possibly been motivated by the 2018 elections could it? Could it?
