    Obstruction is a crime, abuse of power is a crime. Both are impeachable. Ask Nixon.

    Both are made up crimes. Charge Trump with a real crime and get back to us.

    Then why hasn't every President been impeached? Every President has done this, in the course of doing his job.

    Because republicans are party hacks that just vote donw party line. All the evidence showed Trump should have been impeached. But republicans are spineless cowards pandering to the biggest scumbags the US has to offer

    No president until Trump has undergone an impeachment trial and has flatly refused to turn over documents, allow witnesses to be called and clearly state publicly that he will not cooperate. There has only been 3 presidents in our more recent history formally impeached by Congress, Trump is the first one to be impeached before he finished his first term.

    No, every president has not done this in the course of doing his job.

    Many Trumpkins are saddled with a bad case of Cognitive dissonance.

    Ahead of impeachment trial, Trump suggests not having it

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says the Senate should simply dismiss the impeachment case against him, an extraordinary suggestion as the House prepares to transmit the charges to the chamber for the historic trial.

    The Republican president is giving mixed messages ahead of the House’s landmark vote that will launch the Senate proceedings in a matter of days, only the third presidential impeachment trial in American history. Trump faces charges that he abused power by pushing Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden and then obstructed Congress.

    First Trump was suggesting his own ideas for trial witnesses, then he said almost the opposite Sunday by tweeting that the trial shouldn’t
    happen at all.

    “Many believe that by the Senate giving credence to a trial” over charges he calls a hoax, Trump tweeted, “rather than an outright dismissal, it gives the partisan Democrat Witch Hunt credibility that it otherwise does not have. I agree!”

    COMMENT:-

    Having the Senate receive the bill of impeachment and the, ten minutes later, vote to dismiss the charges on a straight party line vote would do wonders for the Republican Party in November - wouldn't it?
    No worse than passing the articles on less than a straight party line as democrats did.
    since you do not think there is an issue with passing or not passing things on straight party lines you should
    have no issue with them dismissing it.

    i doubt however that it will be on a straight party line. there are a few honest democratic senators just like
    there area few honest democratic house members that saw through this dog and pony show that schiff and pelosi put on.
    they were at least honest to admit it.

    actually it wasn't partisan on both sides. there was more bi-partisan against the articles than there was for it.
    the only partisan vote and not even a full partisan vote was on pelosi.

    there were a few honest democrats that voted against them.
