Trump impeachment no slam dunk for moderate Democrats

WaExaminer: Impeaching President Trump will be an easy “yes” vote for many liberal Democrats. But vulnerable moderates face the difficult choice: oppose voters in their districts or their own caucus.

“I’m leaning no,” Rep. Collin Peterson, a Minnesota Democrat, told the Washington Examiner. “I want to look at everything.”

Several Democrats from swing districts interviewed by the Washington Examiner said they had not decided whether to support the two articles of impeachment announced Tuesday by Democratic leaders. The articles charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The House could vote on the articles next week.

Peterson predicted only “four or five” Democrats will likely vote against the articles, which would represent a very small defection out of 233 House Democrats and would leave plenty of room to pass the articles with a robust margin leaders can showcase.

Peterson, however, is among 31 swing-district Democrats who must answer to constituents who voted for President Trump and who largely oppose the House Democratic impeachment effort. read more

  1. You have to hand it to schiff and nasty pelosi…they have done great things, especially for the REPUBLICAN PARTY! Kind of like what obama did for gun sales! 🙂

  2. Pelosi and Schiff have both put everything on the line with this.

    I wonder if they’re feeling a bit nervous right now?

  3. I’m looking to place a bet that impeachment does not get out of the House. What are the odds in Vegas? Have you noticed that Lindsey is now talking about calling witnesses if it gets to the Senate? I believe that to be a calculated move to scare moderate libs. The reality is that Lindsey’s worst nightmare is for a parade of witnesses to testify, eventually his illegal activities will be an issue. If he can scare libs out of sending this to trial he might live to skim tax dollars again.

  5. A long trial in the Senate will pull those senators running for the presidency out of action for the first few primaries. I don’t predict that will happen but it sure would be fun to watch.

  6. As a rebuttal to Jack Ass impeachment…
    All the President has to do its have the Horowitz Report read to the Dummies.

  7. As long as America is….America, the truth will prevail…..even when Bullshit denounces the facts, even when liberals counter the truth.

    While the lying liberals obliterate actual evidence, those in doubt need only ask ‘common sense’ questions.

    Their hate for America is well beyond question, it is obvious, sickening, despicable, intolerable and offensive beyond belief.

  8. The July vote to table impeachment was something like 312-95. What changed? Why did more than a hundred Dems change their minds and decide to vote in favor of impeachment – why were they against it in July? Regardless they are doomed.

  9. DemocRATz are putting their fate in the hands of the American people. Whether they accept it or not is another question. It’s a pretty good bet that they won’t because when was the last time they thought about anything other than themselves? It’s gonna get real ugly next year when they try to just assume power thru outright belligerence! Keep yer powder dry!
