Even before the 2016 election, some Democrats were pushing for the impeachment of Donald Trump. How absurd to want to erase an election that has not even happened. In spite of his proven leadership, those top Trump haters have reached their goal in the House.

Or did they? After months of hearings that were so urgent that they could be interrupted for repeated vacations, they finally found time to vote to impeach him on vague grounds. However, after the vote, what happened next?

First , they could not send the impeachment file to the Senate unless they got their way. Now, to everyone’s surprise, the urgency is delayed because they must take another extended vacation. So much for urgency.

We will just have to wait until after Jan 7 to see how things proceed. The Democrats know full well that impeachment will not go anywhere in the Senate. However, they will be able to get a lot of free media coverage which will actually work against them.

Our country is thriving beyond anyone’s wildest dreams at this time and mostly because we have a leader who puts the good of all of us ahead of political posturing. If Joe Biden and his son were the patriotic citizens they claim to be, the Democrats would still be searching for an impeachment cause.

It’s time for the wasteful activities of certain congresspersons to end and for all our leaders and the media to allow everyone of us to bask in the good our nation is enjoying. Even though some will never admit it, even the haters are enjoying an unprecedented great economy and individual confidence in our country.

The erasing of an election is a fox news talking point. Mike Pence would be president if trump were removed from office. So that remark is factually ridiculous. Trump has run the country like a mobster, violated the constitution, obstructed justice,Obstructed congress, blocked investigations, and abused his oath of office by interfering in our elections, and hasn't produced a single document to prove he's transparent, or innocent. He wouldn't tesdtify in the muellar investigation, when he said he would. He's reversed his position enough times to make your head spin. He and his counsel were offered an opportunity to argue their case before the house, but refused, (because they have no case) After being the 3rd president to be impeached, and rightfully so, he continues stall, block and not provide the american people with "ANY" evidence that would exonerate himself. Instead , what we have now is a corrupt Mitch McConnell vowing not to have a fair trial, and not comply with the constituion by allowing whitmesses who have direct knowledge, Like Bolton, Pompeo, duffy, eisman, mulvaney, and even pence. These senators take an oath to be impartial and they are not doing that. They want a rigged trial. No evidence and no whitnesses. American people deserve better. We don't need a president that hides his tax returns, degrades the military, by removing funds for their welfare to build his useless wall, mexico was supposed to pay for. He's destroying our environment by deregulation.. dismantling the clean water act, that protects lakes rivers and streams. He has no healthcare plan and everyone's healthcare is at stake in this election. Elect him , and forget about pre-existing condition coverage. You'll be mortgaging your future to pay for medical cost. Mitch Mconnel pledged cutting medicare , medicaid and social security in this next term if trump is re elected. There will also be radical changes to veteran benefits, that no one talks about. The VA disability program will be re examining veterans to try and remove as many as possible from their compensation. So all you vets can expect letters to "Re asses" your claims. Why? the 23 trillion dollar deficit , that bal;loned after taxcuts for the wealthy. They believe cutting entitlements is their way of reducing the deficit. This is why you don't vote for trumps re election. He has no obligation to vets, seniors, people on disability or anyone once he has your vote. It's his final four and he can do nasty things and know one can remove him from office.

"Know one can remove him"? I believe in the English language it should be NO One. Looks like you found a CNN news transcript an posted it.

Msfahrenheit

You mean "and" posted it? You know very well that people make typos and simple mistakes are no big deal. Some people cannot type well and use voice to script their letter. If grammar or spelling is the only critique you have, you must agree with everything else in the letter, right?

It certainly wasn't Fox news. A new study shows that viewers who get their news from Fox News are the most misinformed in the country.

World Public Opinion, a project managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland, conducted a survey of American voters that shows that Fox News viewers are significantly more misinformed than consumers of news from other sources. What’s more, the study shows that greater exposure to Fox News increases misinformation.

So the more you watch, the less you know. Or to be precise, the more you think you know that is actually false.

Got that?

I would be upset if anything was factual in this letter. Just from whom did you get your information from Rush Limbaugh? Democrats never called for Trumps impeachment before the election because they really thought they would win. Obviously you were not paying attention when Republicans were calling to make Obama a one term president on his first day so don't be so hypocritical. As far as Biden's son goes were not nominating him for office so like, who cares? With all of Trumps indiscretion's that you and others seem to ignore your letter has absolutely no credibility.

Robert, your 'hate' thing, as it applies to Dems, is really getting old and worn out. It is really sad that your 'hate' thing is all you have to work with. I pity you, big time.

Save some Pity for yourself.

Why, crizor? I do quite well thinking for myself and behaving in a fair and normal manner.

I watched the video....thank "god" the evangelicals are receiving a wake up call...from the Atlantic magazine.

Evangelicals just received an ultimatum: Abandon President Donald Trump, or betray your brothers and sisters in Christ.

Christianity Today—the magazine founded by the famous preacher Billy Graham, and the longtime forum for mainstream evangelical thought—has published an editorial calling for Trump to be removed from the White House. The editor in chief, Mark Galli, acknowledged that “the typical CT approach is to stay above the fray and allow Christians with different political convictions to make their arguments in the public square.” But the facts are “unambiguous,” Galli wrote. “The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.”
