    You mean that poll that showed 48% DEMOCRAT participation???

    It's a skewed poll, since Democrats (31% of the voters) are overrepresented by more than 50%, and it basically shows that DEMOCRATS want to impeach Trump...

    Because the investigation was done by an outside special investigator. The investigation itself was not open to "both sides" (although Ken Starr leaked like a sieve). This is the investigation part that was done by Archibald Cox in Nixon's impeachment and Starr in Clintons.

    You are right about being legal but wrong about conservatives-I am not one, but they are not goons anymore than all Democrats are snowflakes. Show some respect.

    It is up to the House to decide and how it was done in the past is irrelevant. Given the facts in this case, the way the Democrats are proceeding makes sense. The supposed impeachment proceedings against Clinton and the impeachment proceedings against Nixon involved domestic laws. In this case, the potential offense involves foreign countries so letting committees who deal with foreign policy and Intelligence since it may involve classified information.

    Amateur-level juvenile theatrics... a sophomoric sideshow for their bumper-sticker motto-braying Sheeple.

    If you're not on the Committee you don't get to sit-in on closed-door sessions.

    They... and you... and I... will know more about their findings, very soon now.

    Incorrect. A subset of those elected representatives already have access. More will have access very soon now.

    Incorrect. Impeachment will be a very transparent process. Intelligence gathering, however, is - and always has been - behind closed doors.

    Incorrect. Impeachment will be a very fair and open process, amongst the House at-large.

    Impeachment will be a very transparent process, amongst the House at-large.

    They - and you - will have access to all requisite transcripts, summaries, etc., once the preliminary Inquiry is over.

    Indeed. It is time for Republicans to reclaim their party from an amoral, arrogant, half-senile, dangerous Robber Baron.

    Please cite the Constitutional provision or the Statute or House Rule that stipulates that an Impeachment Inquiry requires votes or open doors.

    The American voters can see through your partisan bullshit.

    The Constitution gives the House the power to decide how to conduct impeachment. IT IS A LEGITIMATE IMPEACHMENT.

    EXACTLY what this impeachment crap is... a POLITICAL vehicle to propagandize NOTHING that is impeachable, especially since we KNOW it hasn't a chance to being enacted in the Senate....Face it. The party of INFANTICIDE has NO VIABLE AGENDA OR POLICIES that would make things better in Anerica and for Americans and keeping this charade up. Is all they have.....

    THE BILL CLINTON VOTE WAS NOT BI-PARTISAN. It was a Republican blow job.
