    Matt Gaetz may be the biggest loser in politics. Either him or Gym Jordan

    What do you think Trump meant when he said he wanted to ensure Ukraine was committed to stopping corruption before he agreed to anything?
    What do you think Obama meant when he said they would have more flexibility after the election?

    Why wonít the house actually vote on the impeachment inquiry? Is it because then republicans would have subpoena power and be able to subpoena anyone they want?

    That's definitely part of it, but more importantly they can continue keeping out Republicans from all and every interview that they conduct while releasing portioned and partisan evidence through the media.

    No worries. It will backfire as it has for the last 3 years. They have zero precedent or legal legs to stand on.

    There is no need for a formal vote since the House rules allow for single party subpoena power. The vote would achieve nothing since federal judges have been rather deferential to the Houseís power to run standard investigations.

    What changes if the House takes an unnecessary vote?

    It achieves nothing but shows how much of a partisan witch-hunt this inquiry is.

    Itís all politics. Using impeachment to try and undo an election

    Weird that the founders gave us impeachment if they thought it was about reversing an election. Thatís a stupid argument against impeachment.

    He was referring to his upcoming Yoga retreat at Camp David. Obviously.

    Nope. Itís. Cause itíll pass and jeopardize Dem representatives who won in Trump districts in 2018.

    This is why Pelosi has been against impeachment.

    To be fair it's a joke at this point. The GOP and Democrats are both a circus with a clown president.

    Yeah thatís part of it and another part is that they wouldnít be able to subpoena people unless the vote happens (Republicans)

    But again itís all politics and next election

    The mainstream (read, the neoliberals: Clintons/Obama/Pelosi/Schumer/Biden) Democrats are the big losers here.

    While this has been far, far from a witch hunt, once again they have been manipulated into allowing ďdump TrumpĒ to override any positive messaging, messaging they desperately need in order to attract vital support (and maybe even do the country some good).

    I think they should kick it to the supreme court and we'll see what Justice Garland has to say about it. Oh that's right, it's not the behavior you have a problem with, it's the party. Do you believe in anything?
