    Thus the House's need to hold investigations and hearings. Good.

    I was asking a question, not making a statement it was misuse. So, I have no need to state my case.

    I hope he turns the tables and has the DOJ audit everyone in congress to find corruption through bribes or illegal donations.

    If you believe that people with $175K annual salaries are leaving congress in 6 years as multi-millionaires legitimately, you're a complete imbecile.

    I don't think SCOTUS would overrule an impeachment, since it is a political, rather than legal, process. However, the presiding Chief Justice might rule on evidentiary motions during the trial in the Senate.

    Personally, I would like to see the Demwits impeach Trump and then the Senate give them two minutes to present their case before voting not guilty on all charges.

    If the Dems hold an impeachment vote in the House and it passes, I would say it is very likely they would lose the House and possibly more seats in the Senate next year, depending on how the trial goes in the Senate. Sure, the Dems in the deep blue states don't have to worry much, but those in red or purple districts/states are very likely to lose their seats in Congress, if they vote for impeachment. Most Americans do not want this nonsense to continue, they want action done on the pressing issues facing the country today. There is no way on God's green earth the Senate will vote for Trump's removal from office, so this is all political theater that in the end won't get rid of Trump.

    Now, would the impeachment vote help or hurt Trump in the presidential election? Absent another recession or depression in 2020, and considering the current batch of Dem candidates, I'm not seeing it as hurting him. A lot of independents are going to be pissed at the Dems just like they were in 2010, and we'll get 4 more years of Trump.
