Finally. The full House Majority will vote this week to officially do WHAT THEY’RE ALREADY DOING.
A resolution will be introduced on the floor tomorrow and then Thursday the House will pass it.
About time, gelatin Democrats. Get your balls out in front of you. You should have done this weeks ago.
The Speaker will say this is a vote to “affirm” or “confirm” the impeachment inquiry, but that’s just semantics.
Voters respect strength and conviction. There are plenty of people who voted for Trump in swing districts who then flipped and help the Democrats win an astonishing 40 seats in the midterms — in a map that is rigged against them (I think there was a book written largely about this…).
Voters respect politicians who will stand up for what they believe in and explain their position and their votes in Congress — even though they may not agree with them.
An object lesson in this can be learned just from reading the oped in the Washington Post written by the seven former military and intelligence professionals who are serving their first House terms. They did not want to impeach, but when a line was crossed that they could no longer abide, they announced their decision in a national publication — and explained it.
Get tough, Democrats. But do it with your brains and your words.
Yelling “lock him up” in a stadium doesn’t do a thing — except display that you’re no better than were some very angry, ugly people in 2016.
What matters is the letter of the law and actions to uphold it.
What matters is the wording in the Constitution and actions to defend it.
A majority of Americans support the impeachment inquiry. Keep listening to them.
Let the open hearings begin.
