Why no Obstruction of Justice as an Impeachment Charge

LOL!  The entire thing is a joke. I heard tonight they were having a powwow in the chambers with each representative telling their life story as if that mattered one wit regarding this whole charade.  

There was Eric Swalwell looking into the camera emoting "I remember when I was 5 and my Daddy was a police man in town"... 

Are you kidding? These guys are such clowns!  

Enjoy your basking in the moment while it lasts, because like sands through the hour glass, so are the days of your life..

It will be gone soon.

Its like Impeachment the Play, coming to a theater near you!  

Get your program at the box office. smile

What they do remember is that Clinton was impeached. And that's what Trump will be remembered for...
Hi Rod:

This is an interesting point.  I would guess that most folks who are old enough to remember that Clinton got impeached "remember" that he got impeached for having sex with an intern in the Oval Office.  As you know, that is not the case, but history and memory are funny things.

We can all speculate a to how Trump's inevitable impeachment will be remembered.  Hopefully we can discuss it here in 20 years or so, after Rich has melted his 647th keyboard with fevered typing!  My prediction is that liberals will "remember" that Trump was impeached for colluding with a "Russian" president to hack the 2016 and 2020 elections.  Conservatives will "remember" that Trump was impeached by a rogue House for the "high crime" of being disagreeable to the majority party. Which incorrect narrative will prevail?  It is too early to tell.

I seriously hope that Trump's impeachment and inevitable acquittal in the Senate does not kick off a new era of the House using impeachment as an offensive weapon every time a president from the other party is in office.   I doubt this will happen, because my bet is that the D's come to regret this particular impeachment in November of 2020.  But, as they say, we won't really know until then.

I agree that the likely outcome is the Dim's end up regretting the attempt......I predict not a single witness will be called in the senate assuming it does end up passing in the house which I am not yet 100% convinced it will. Looks like we may find that out by the end of today.

I think the senate if it comes to it will vote solely on the "evidence" presented by the house without calling any witnesses and let the chips fall outside of the "impeachment" process regarding Biden etc.....
