Of what value is an impeachment at this time?

Or, invoking the 25th amendment? I can't wrap my head around this, is it just to further embarrass and harass President Trump, is it providing a legal basis to prevent him from running again, or is there something they want to prevent him from doing in the next 10 days? I would think with 10 days to go that the clock is too short to bother with doing anything.

    I think it's more of a "channel marker" for future Presidents. I.E.  "Don't cross this boundary".

    Mainly just a crap show like the county fair sideshows. And to show that the Democrats are going to force socialism down our throats by whatever means possible. Gonna be a wild ride the next few months.

    Yup, nothing to be accomplished except to show that all of us is badder than you.  And that crap about taking the launch codes away from him it total BS.    Its not like POTUS can pick up a phone and ten seconds later the world is annihilated.

    I'm convinced both elections were stolen. This Bullsheisse is more of the same scam.

    You've probably all heard the quote or seen the meme of Trump saying "They're not after me; they're after you.  I'm just in the way"

    In discrediting Trump as much as possible, they're trying to smear the same stain onto his policies, his party, and all those that follow them so the whole lot can be painted and perceived as burn-at-the-stake-worthy witches.  This is long-game strategy for a far left game plan.

    Interesting times.

    The public demand for show business has created this. 

    Until there's a public demand for dignity, the show must go on......

    If he is impeached and convicted, he cant run again. Thats why they want to do it.

    This.

    and they want to do it as a warning to anyone who wants to try what Trump did.  They will not allow anyone outside their club to come in, and will never stop trying to destroy them if they do

    So one could then infer that they are not only afraid that he might run again, but that if he did so, they are very afraid that he might win the next time.

    Yep. Once the election steal is fixed in the states, he would win. The PA senate just tossed the LT Gov out of the chamber so there is hope that some spines were found.

    Makes me wonder what they have planned for the next 4 years if they are afraid of that

    I am breaking one of my self promises and am watching CNN.  The debate over impeachment going on is a joke. Some of our elected officials sound like raving lunatics.  How Maxine Waters keeps being re-elected is beyond belief.  Listening to most of these people speak, we are in for a rough four years.

    I keep wondering why they even bother talking before they do what everyone knows they're going to do....their little 3 to 5 minute speeches aren't going to change anyone's mind...spare us the dog and pony show and do it...

    Neither is the vote. There is no time to do anything legitimately 

    Remember how one side screamed when Trump wanted to call out the NG? Well now they are demanding they be deployed 

    Like Trump or not, the smooth transition just cant happen. People are going to clean out their office and leave the incoming folks to figure it out.

    It's really going to be a long 4 years

    No background music, again.

    Two thumbs down from me.  Maybe Biden's impeachment will be better.

    Speaking of impeachment, I just heard that the house has voted to impeach.

    No big surprise there.

    And I have a feeling that Mitch is going to let Biden have some time in office before setting the wheels in motion for a Senate conviction. Which prevents Trump from holding any office again. Which may have been the plan all along on both sides of the aisle.

    Mitch is on record as saying he wouldn't reconvene the senate until 1/19, which is the day before the inauguration.  I'm not sure the senate has the votes to convict, but you never know with such a corrupt bunch as we have now.

    These idiots in Congress AND the Corporations that are now announcing they will break with the Trump organization do not understand that they are creating a Legend, a Hero, a Martyr and a GOD!!! all rolled into one.  He is probably laughing his ass off right now, I know I am!!!  No ONE understands the value of these actions better than Trump.  NO ONE understands the mentality of his "market" better than TRUMP!  I predicted he was going to win the Presidency when he came down the stairs will Melania because he would run his campaign like a business.  I now predict that if there was ever a chance of anyone taking over control of this country by any means outside of a general election, you are looking at him...

    His name recognition is now beyond Global, and there are 70,000,000,000 folks right here in the USA and MILLIONS more worldwide that will jump off ANY company at his command.  He wields the power of billions of dollars (potentially trillions) of consumer spending!  Remember AOC was named salesperson of the month at Goya when she said she was not buying anymore Adobo (Latin seasoning)?  Remember what Obama did for gun sales?

    This is going to be EPIC!!!  Hold on to your britches Betsy, it's going to be a wild ride...

    Beyond this point, if they don't impeach him he could run again. That would split the Republican party and permit the Democrats to win again without opposition. The Republicans should go along with it.

    Mitch McConnell will not call and emergency session of the Senate.  That will leave it up to Chuck Schumer to take it on and juggle the time with approving Bidens picks.
    Good move or bad?
    Me thinks he wants the Democrats to be responsible for everything the next two years, maybe they can flip the house or Senate if they do dumb stuff

    Donald Trump should just make everybody's head explode and run as a Democrat next time.
