In 2014 the republicans controlled both house and senate. Why didn’t they move to impeach or investigate Obama?

That is the whole point of checks and balances.

Too many Americans respect the election results and the will of the people.

A few of the "out of control" Democrats DO NOT respect the voters. People like Schiff, Nadler, AOC, Swalwell, etc - believe they
are SO much smarter than the average American.  They do not respect living in a democracy - where you wait until the next election
if you do not approve of the current policies.

How obvious with coup attempt #5 or #6 in the works....

Will of the people? Oh, you mean the popular vote which Trump lost.

Well, we live in a democratic republic so the popular vote is not the deciding factor. 

And none of this has to do with Congress’s ability to investigate, subpoena, and potentially impeach.

The funny thing, is that even people like LC know that these scumbags are purposely just wasting time and taxpayer money because there is 0% chance the Senate doesnt kill coup attempt #6...so you really have to ask yourself why they are elected if THIS is all they are seemingly there to do. There was a video earlier of a reporter going to the Omar Hadid Shalam/Bernie Sanders rally, and asking supporters if they can name anything democrats have accomplished of late. Couldn't get one answer.... and somehow they were OK with this.

Cubs, I would suggest that you might want to brush up on your concept of a democracy.

One difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that the guy in charge in a democracy? - he can be held accountable for his actions. He is not given unlimited dictatorial powers for his term as you seem to think is appropriate.

You and the present president both seem to believe that a president has complete and unaccountable power to do as he feels without question.

The audacity of those pesky Democrats. Imagine! They think they have a right to hold an inquiry to see if  the President might have done something wrong. How dare they! It’s a hoax, it’s a hoax!

As the president boasted: “I could go out on Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and not lose any voters.” Are you one of those voters? If not, then you should acknowledge that the house has every right to hold a hearing to see if impeachment might be warranted. Perhaps you should look at what has come up so far in the process, before you voice your preconceived judgment.

It is obvious to all by now that Trump held up Senate approved Ukrainian funding for his own purposes and on condition that the Ukraine help him dig up dirt on the Bidens... and "Oh, by the way, report back on the quiet to my personal attorney".  You don't see anything wrong with that?

That is black and white. It is completely irrelevant what Obama or the Bidens or anyone else did or did not do. It is purely what Trump did and that would seem to be illegal. Even the Republicans now admit this and their defense is: well it might have been illegal, but it wasn’tall  that illegal. It s kind like saying “Well she is just a little bit pregnant”.

"...asking supporters if they can name anything democrats have accomplished..."

The Democrats are not in power. The question should be: What has trump accomplished? Other than to piss off all the US allies to the benefit of Russia, China, Iran, etc. Even today France has come out and told Europe that they can no longer depend on the US.

First, what the Senate does or doesn't kill does not mean abuses of power should go un-investigated, or whistleblowers should be silenced, or responsibilities granted to the House should be revoked or not respected.

Now, until a year ago, Democrats had zero control over: the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, or the Presidency. So essentially the entire foundation of the Federal government. What were you expecting them to do, tap dance?

But if we back up a teeeeensy bit further than that, some guy actually did a decent job at moving towards universal healthcare. I think he was a Democrat but nobody ever mentions him anymore so I can't recall.  ;D

It's those Latent Fascist Tendencies (LFTs) that you'll see a subset of Trump supporters exhibiting. Drinking a little too much Russian vodka and not enough American beer, if you catch my drift.

Personally I think it stems from a weird blend of narcissism and impotent rage, but the verdict is still out among psychiatrists :P  ;D ;D

Sorry, but when, from day 1, the team of clowns have done nothing but try to overturn the election results and remove Trump from office, at this point, I really dont care if he does shoot someone on 5th avenue, they have no credibility and dont deserve to get what they want. They've spent his entire 3 years doing nothing but trying to orchestrate a coup, perpetuate ludicrously false narratives in coordination with their pals in the media, and even to this day, still do things in secret while selectively leaking what suites them. If anyone really has a problem with Trump, get your ass to the polls in 12 months...
