I love the hypocrisy...

"Trump isn't doing what every presidential candidate has voluntarily done before, so he's breaking traditional norms...He is the devil trapped in Hitler's body!!!!!"...

and THEN...

"Pelosi isn't beginning the process with a House vote, which every other impeachment inquiry has voluntarily done before, breaking traditional norms...She is fair and wonderful and forthright and gorgeous and she should go back to being 30 years old so she could have my babies!!!!!"...

In Clinton's case loyalist Democrats named Pelosi and Nadler hammered on about the sanctity of the election. This was after the special prosecutor's report documented 10 different felonies Clinton had committed. Quite different from the Mueller report.

Of course the Clinton impeachment inquiry opened with a floor vote in the House authorizing the probe and allowing the Democrats to call witnesses and issue subpoenas. But that is too much trouble for Resistance Democrats who simply reject any possibility other than Orange man bad.

lately a court ruled trump must release his taxes. he appealed and the next judge agreed. now the Justice dept -which is supposed to be for us not the POTUS- has stepped in an asked the judges that trump's taxes be blocked from release.
weird damned times were are living in.

Nope...because it wasn't about the Republicans whining about Clinton beating Dole in the 1996 election. Everyone agreed the election was fair and square and the impeachment process had zero to do with the election process.

Unlike now, where Democrats have NEVER considered the 2016 election legitimate...

Also, may I point out that there is ANOTHER election coming up in the present scenario, unlike Clinton and Nixon, who were already on their second terms...

Now are Democrats trying to impeach Trump so he DOESN'T win the next election?...

Just ask Democrat Al Green...He publicly admitted it...

Democrat accidentally admits why they're really seeking to impeach President Trump ó and it's on video

Allies of President Donald Trump are highlighting a statement from a Democratic member of Congress that they say reveals the true motivation behind the calls to have the president impeached.

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) was defending his support for impeachment despite the practical political implications of such a controversial act by Congress, when he revealed the reasoning behind his advocacy.

"I'm concerned that if we don't impeach this president, he will get re-elected," said Green on MSNBC. "If we don't impeach him, he will say he's been vindicated.

"He will say the Democrats had an overwhelming majority in the House and didn't take up impeachment," he continued. "He will say we have a constitutional duty to do it if it was there and we didn't. He will say he's been vindicated."
Well, there you go...

I remember when Nixon got impeached.
Oh wait, Nixon didn't get impeached.

So far, there are no impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
There is a lot of talk about impeachment, there are a lot of fools screaming for impeachment (even since before he was inaugurated), and there are a lot of accusations about impeachment. But so far, Nancy Pelosi (speaker of the house and decider of such action) has not called for an actual impeachment. Oh, she has called for an "investigation" into articles of impeachment, but just like the Russian collusion, she knows there is no proof of impeachable activity. Pelosi is semi-bowing to her masters known as the liberal media but not fully capitulating to them because she knows there is nothing there.

Yeah, what the fu** do his taxes have to do with being president?
He gets audited every year, if he was criminal tax evasion, we'd know it already.

Basically the Democrats are admitting that it's unlikely that they can defeat President Trump in 2020. I can't think of any other reason to pursue impeachment at this point.

The Senate will not remove Trump. But by pushing impeachment the
Democrats are destroying their already slim chance of defeating President Trump in 2020.

It makes no sense to me. I'm beginning to think smart Democrat is an oxymoron.
