    House has voted for both articles of impeachment.

    Congrats, Fucko, you're officially on the level of Andrew Johnson and Richard Nixon.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Tulsi Gabbard voted "Present" if you want an update as to how that tertiary character's plot is going.

    Richard Nixon was never impeached. However Bill Clinton was impeached.

    Are you suggesting that they just sit there an let the Democrats say whatever they want? It's important for both sides of the issue be stated and let people make up their own minds as to who's right.

    Not totally unfair on the Speaker's part I think. Show me your cards before I show you mine is a good strategy.

    Letting both sides say what they want would make a world of sense.........if the Republicans and Trump weren't lying their asses off which in turn leads their braindead base to think that Trump is being unfairly targeted which he's not.

    This idiocy has consequences Trump even being in the white house is a testament to that.

    Nope, he can still run.

    Unless of course he's convicted and forcibly removed from office, but we all know that'll never happen.

    I hope their is a game plan to not have this immediately struck down once it hits the republican controlled supreme court.

    Yeah, unfortunately impeached doesn't mean kicked out. It's why Clinton didn't leave office, and why Al Gore didn't take over before the 2000 election.

    Seems pretty silly to have a what amounts to a jury of his friends deciding his fate. That type of set-up surely wouldn't stand in a regular courtroom, but i guess presidents are above the laws that governs the average man.

    That's honestly the only good thing coming out of this. Unfortunately I think it'll backfire on the dems by making trumpy's base coalesce around him. And since the name of the 2020 game is gonna be voter turnout I don't like where this is going.

    Ironically, while watching impeachment, I got a call notifying me that I'd been hired as a political consultant for a NY State Senate seat. Merry Impeachment, I guess.

    Whose willing to bet that people will only be emboldened to reelect Trump, and don't actually care if his actually committed lots of crimes?

    That McConnel and Lindsay Gram both said up front they weren't going to be impartial and it was going to be a mock trial gives the dems all the power to not just toss it off to the Senate.

    Like, we knew that you guys were corrupt, it was obvious, you didn't have to say it out loud in public on the record.

    So its in the Dems' best interest to just hold it. Let more investigation come out, use increased subpeona power (and start arresting people who refuse to cooperate) and let Trump yell like a child on a daily basis for as long as possible. If it takes a few months no harm. And if it happens closer to elections? Even better.

    ANd even the repubs might be willing to do something resembling a fair trial if they can see sticking to their path is going to kill them. We know 30-35 would vote against him if it was a secret ballot.

    The supreme court doesn't have any say about impeachment. Senate does.

    65% of REPUBLICANS want an actual trial with witnesses and stuff. Trumpets are idiots, but not all republicans are. They can see a criminal criming when its paraded in front of them enough.

    Remember, the polls that say Trump has a sky high approval rating are basically rigged. They ask the starter questions in such a way that they only get the people they want answering the polls. Even Fox's polls are turning against him, and thats a straight up propoganda network.

    His base has been energized since 2016. Republican turnout was unusually high during the midterms. But they still lost by a record-breaking number.

    Alot of these problems seem like they could be alleviated by making these type of votes a secret ballot. I mean since you guys report who voted for who, anyone who goes against the party line can expect repercussions, meaning that even if they wanted to they are not free to act. The way it stands now it seems like his quip about shooting a guy and getting away with it was quite true, since he can't be prosecuted and the only "court" he can stand in is essentially rigged from the start. I mean i get that i'm a broken record and all, but the system seems broken in so many ways

    I wonder if the impeachment gets Trump so wiled up he has some sort of heart attack, and that's how this all finally ends. Honestly, not against it.

    OK, I'll bite: Why exactly does the U.S. need another four years of Trump?
