Katherine Clark voted to impeach Trump! He has done nothing impeachable and this country is in better shape than it's been in a long time. Her vote was based solely on the fact that she hates him. Vote her out!
Lest we forget the congressmen looking to impeach him had a sexual assault case against him. Guess women's rights aren't that important to her.
Impeach? People are out of their minds. They have been crying Impeach the day he was elected. Sure, let's just overturn an election.
In this case they are trying to overturn the election. They do not like him so they want him out.
You apparently weren't paying attention in civics class. Impeachment is not at all the same thing as overturning an election.
"Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body formally levels charges against a high official of government. Impeachment does not necessarily mean removal from office; it is only a formal statement of charges, akin to an indictment in criminal law, and is thus only the first step towards removal. Once an individual is impeached, he or she must then face the possibility of conviction via legislative vote, which then entails the removal of the individual from office.
Because impeachment and conviction of officials involve an overturning of the normal constitutional procedures by which individuals achieve high office (election, ratification, or appointment) and because it generally requires a supermajority, they are usually reserved for those deemed to have committed serious abuses of their office. In the United States, for example, impeachment at the federal level is limited to those who may have committed "high crimes and misdemeanors
Section 4. The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.".[
Has Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors? I have no idea, and neither do you - yet. That's what we're all trying to ascertain, isn't it? If it turns out that he has, what will your position be then?
And while we are at this game, we now have this forced resigning of Al Franken and Conyers. this is the way the libs are telling Alabama that they cannot vote in Moore. They are forcing Alabama to vote in the Democrat while Minnesota and Michigan will still put in another Democrat. They are just trying to change the Senate seat in Alabama to a Democrat. And we all know this Dem will NEVER vote YEA for any Trump legislation. What a ploy.
Rather than answer the question, you go off on this tangent. Okay - when was the last time you tried to force someone from Alabama to do something? The Franken and Conyers resignations won't change a thing there. It certainly didn't matter when almost 63% of them voted for Trump in the last election. Apparently they think "grabbing them by the pu$$y" is perfectly acceptable, so if you think the Franken and Conyers resignations will change anything, you need to come back to where there's breathable air.
I'm forced to agree with the prior poster. Moore is likely to win in Alabama. What will be interesting is if he does win - what will the Senate do in that case? Will they expel him? I'd also point out that a couple of Repubs have, or soon will, also resign because of the same sort of allegations.
The thing that really troubles me, though, is how we're supposed to figure out which allegations are true and which are not. We're getting to the point where a mere allegation seems to be enough to lead to sanctions. Reminds me a little of restraining orders, where you can be immediately sanctioned - kicked out of your house, arrested, etc. - without due process based solely on the word of your "accuser". That's clearly unconstitutional. And no I'm not suggesting domestic violence issues aren't serious, but clearly there are some who level false charges in order to get the upper hand in divorce proceedings, for example. I'm also not suggesting the accusations we're currently seeing shouldn't be investigated, but due process should apply here also.
