    The attempts failed because the HoR VOTED not to proceed (even if it was by withholding a "yea" vote)...

    So the attempt at impeachment was made when it was brought to the floor..

    Newflash stupid Democrats cannot exclude Republicans from the investigation. Dem's can't go off in secret and conduct a witch hunt.

    /——-/ Dems do go off in private and block Republicans access. They always have whenever they are in power. (Like with Obozocare) But when Republicans are in charge democRATs demand to be part of the committees and the GOP caves every time.

    That doesn't really answer my question. I understand any Rep can propose a resolution, but the House can sideline the resolution so it never reaches a vote. That is what has happened, hence, no vote for impeachment has been held.

    Democrats are blowing it big time. Pelosi represents a small district of a puny 280k people she doesn't speak for the country.

    The way this is being done, my congressman is not allowed to represent ME in those secret hearings.

    She speaks for the House of Representatives. Perhaps that is why her title is "Speaker of the House". The entire House votes on who will be Speaker. Nancy Pelosi won the election for Speaker.

    There is absolutely nothing illegal about it. The House decides on how to proceed. on a impeachment. There are Republicans on these committees the last time I checked. There is no reason for anyone else to be there. Fact finding is best done away from the cameras. Conservative is a joke. These are not conservatives but Trump goons.

    Suburban voters disagree with you. That is why Fox's polls show majority support impeachment and removal.
