Impeachment isn't an option, it's an obligation



Congress has the evidence of crimes. It is their duty to impeach. This isn't even debatable. To ignore these crimes, to play politics with the decision, would make a mockery of the constitution and of the American system of government.

1. I think it's about timing. We should end ups at impeachment, but we should go into impeachment with

all the evidence we can muster. Mueller didn't investigate every lead, nor did he investigate every crime.

3. Impeachment proceedings gives the House tremendous investigative powers

 

to obtain all the evidence needed to produce the articles for why Trump is being impeached to turn over to the senate. It begins the evidence hunt for hearings to proceed. In order to complete this task impeachment proceedings gather all the evidence needed for a trial which takes place in the senate. Which is why impeachment proceedings should begin immediately.

8. Also, Nixon's impeachment took over 2 years from start to finish

Trump's impeachment would continue (if necessary) past the 2020 election

2. More Hearings; More Testimony. Because Doing nothing can also backfire.

5. Why is the media not going after repub reactions etc to Mueller report. GOP gets a pass?

 

Failure to impeach will hurt us badly at the polls...even if Trump loses reelection we will be seen as cowardly dems who (once again) refuse to hold repub presidents accountable for their criminal behavior. Then this "both sides" are complicit meme will take root or the what's the difference so why vote...especially if we run a moderate old time repub light dem.

6. We Must Start Impeachment Hearings Now! No More Holding Our Finger to the Political Wind!

If house Democrats don't start impeachment proceedings now,
1) Democrats will be seen as wimps by the voters;
2) Voter apathy will increase when voters see one party of criminals (Republicans) and the other party (Democrats) as being too weak to bring them to justice.
3) It will embolden Trump tremendously;
4) It will embolden the Russians even more.

7. Failure to Impeach is the same thing as legitimizing the destruction

of the United States.

Every day this man - who thinks he is god - wipes his ass with the Constitution. He makes a mockery of our legal system. He ignores the checks and balances on the Executive Branch. He lies every time he speaks. The evil he enables daily is has no limits.

It is no longer a question of should we. It is now an issue that goes to the very heart of America.

Failure to impeach will destroy this country.
