Well they keep getting bigger shovels to dig themselves deeper. Now they are talking that IF they take control of the senate they will impeach Kavenaugh. Good! Keep talking. America will make sure you don’t. Especially since Nancy (out to lunch) Pellosi is beating that drum
Senate tries the impeachement, the House initiates it by filing articles, voting, and approving it. It still takes A Lot to get that done.
The dems need to learn our system of gov't...
they clearly dont understand what it actually takes to impeach someone. Just because you have power and the numbers doesn't mean you can just impeach someone because you disagree with their politics.
they are looking to fight a very serious battle with zero war training
As I've said before, the dems are pissing off the wrong crowd.
And no, it's not old white conservative guys either...
They're not only crazy, they don't know the law and they would ignore the law even if they did know it.
They also don't know the Constitution, because while a simple majority in the House can impeach, it takes a 2/3 majority in the Senate to convict.
Thank you, Nva. They will never get 2/3 to vote guilty in the Senate. Did not with Clinton and will not now with anyone they try to impeach. Amazing how stupid they are.
it would take 67 Senators to pass the impeachment .... aint gonna happen ....
I Believe they know all of this already. But they also know that the low information voters that are their base do not. They say these things to get their votes knowing full well it will never come to fruition.
That threat is right up thwre with the R party defunding Obama care or planned parenthood if they have an R president. All talk, then it happens and they shut up
And the clock keeps ticking on RB Ginsburg
That’s wrong. Impeachment can only be done in the House.
If the House votes to impeach the Senate then tries the case. Then they vote. At that point it takes a 2/3 majority to convict
I’m baffled by how people want to try and impeach someone for an unconvicted so called act committed as a teenager? Keep pissing off the voters.
I believe a judge can only be impeached for "high crimes and misdemeanors" committed while in office.
It’s all about fundraising for the Dems. The impeachment and abortion are all they got to raise money off of.
Sundowner, this will not stop them them for trying and rallying the base. They will blame the Republicans for blocking the sham... Liberalism is a mental disorder and the base is easily manipulated.
I read that here on the CF a few days ago as well.
But a search of the Constitution shows nothing on that. It only references "High Crimes and Misdemeanors." Nothing else.
the 2/3rd is the 67 Senators, I may have worded it wrong ... yes, the House can impeach, they start it off, then it goes to the Senate where it would take 67 Senators after the "Trial" to vote Yea .. there is no way they could get 67 Senators to go along ...
The House votes to impeach. The Senate votes to censure, (i.e. reprimand), which generally leads to the removal of the individual, depending on what they decide the appropriate action should be. That's my understanding of the 'impeachment' issue, but I seriously doubt Maxine Waters knows these details, despite her screaming "impeach, impeach, impeach" a hundred times a day..... ;^)
"Senate tries the impeachment, the House initiates it by filing articles, voting, and approving it. It still takes A Lot to get that done."
Namely you better have something better than "We don't like him".
I wonder if these people ever wake up and are embarrassed by just how stupid they really are?!?
^^^doubtful. They fully believe they know what they're talking about.
Correct ^^ and in reality they dont know squat .... here is why the dems are all talk, no substance
Let them keep pushing that...
