    Trump is a using the courts just like he’s abusing his office. He has no intention of winning. He just is trying to run the clock out. This is like his defamation lawsuits. He’s not trying to win with a legal argument.

    The House is fighting a lawsuit with McGahn over the same issue. It’s taken 6 months for one decision. This is going to take years to litigate.

    Where did we get the idea that the House has to ask permission from the courts and the administration to exercise their constitutionally granted powers?

    The world knows Why don't trumpers?
    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign pounced Wednesday evening after a viral video featuring frustrated world leaders mocking President Donald Trump circulated online. The Democratic candidate released a new attack ad saying the country needed a leader the “world respects.”


    The minute-long clip begins with a supercut of diplomats and world leaders laughing at Trump, including footage from a speech at the United Nations in 2018 and this week’s video from the NATO conference in London.

    “The world sees Trump for what he is: insincere, ill-informed, corrupt,” Biden says in a voiceover in the ad. “Dangerously incompetent and incapable, in my view, of world leadership.”

    You lost the HOUSE, and you're not getting it back. How many state governorships have you lost? Over 300 political offices have flipped from red to blue since Donald Trump was elected. Young people getting out of school with a millstone of debt around their necks, and no access to health care, won't vote Republican.

    That's what is happening, the House is exercising their partisan impeachment powers, and the senate will shove it down their throats. Then what? Trump gets re-elected.
    Why does it take 6-months to get a court decision?

    The House is being criticized for having an impeachment without obtaining as much information as would be possible should Trump have decided to cooperate with their investigation. It’s ridiculous to think the House has the power to impeach but not to investigate the Executive but that’s the argument being put forth by the Trump administration. It has been failing and will fail. But Trump’s legal team also knows they can delay the courts with motion after motion. That’s why it takes so long to get a court decision and that’s why Trump is doing it. Not to win but to run out the clock.

    He's a poser, it's obvious. Everything he said is identical to everything we hear from the radical left, who have yet to prove anything against the President. If you were honest you would acknowledge that.

    A win is a win is a win. Grasping at straws is grasping at straws. The Trump 4-corners run out the clock strategy is perfectly legal. I'd even say more legal than the crappy game the democrats pulled with the Steele Dossier, the Mueller Investigation, and all the other attempted coups since Trump was elected. So impeach or not, play the hand you're dealt.
    Chaffetz in his books always whines that the House has no enforcement power, so that is true for BOTH parties.

    Because there are more cases than just Trump's obstruction of Congress.
