    Unfortunately the statute in the Constitution leaves a lot open to who is in control in the House. It's a political move, not a legal move.
    I was wondering why the secret interview took place and the questioning was so controlled. Then I saw Joe Biden talking about the evidence given by the secret interview witnesses. How does he have the text of the "secret" interviews? Leaking? Isn't that a crime.

    No Trump threatened to withhold aid until Ukraine announced an investigation into Biden and Clinton, his political adversaries. This had nothing to do with 2016.

    Except that Tweety extorted Ukraine to force them to be part of his election effort by withholding congressionally appropriated military aid, and multiple sources confirm it.

    Did you wonder why all the secret interviews took place during the Benghazi investigation too? It is also a moot point since the transcripts of the interviews are being released.

    Those were Lindsay Graham's words when it was politicly convenient for him.

    Why would ask what he's been convicted of when you know in advance there's been no trial in regards to this?

    You don't seem to understand how this all works.
    How it all works is the partisan Senate overrides the partisan House.

    The founders made an impeachment process just for this purpose and it is being followed.
