    They should have done this already - but good for them....nothing wrong with protecting our democratic republic that is their job.

    I guess all my posts calling Pelosi a coward finally hit their mark. You're welcome. :p

    If this does happen, I don't see how you confine the hearings to the Ukraine business and not throw in all the other stuff from emoluments to obstruction. But, I don't want to make the mistake of over-estimating Congress.

    I do not see a downside to having a separate impeachment inquiry per impeachable offense. It might even more sense to bring them sequentially.

    Hmmm, that doesn't sound like a sincere impeachment inquiry to me. I can understand and appreciate the desire for speed. But keeping it narrow makes it sound like it's just bluff to try to get the Admin to comply with the law. Is she really willing to hold a vote on impeachment if they continue to defy Congress? And, won't she just drop the brinksmanship if the Admin does comply?

    I wonder if the US would push to convict when he's out

    So you’ve convicted him before the release of the transcript or the whistleblowers testimony? Nothing new here.

    I don’t think this will turn out well for anyone.

    Interesting.

    Oh, I would have convicted him of tons of things, Obstruction of justice, breaking the emoluments clause, consistently breaking the law every single day he has been in office.

    So, yep, happy to see how this plays out - and happy they are finally holding him accountable.....

    The question is will you be willing to stand up and do the patriotic thing IF he is found guilty to have used his office to get a foreign power to help him politically - a clear and present danger to our republic?

    Will you be willing to put America first?
