I am not a Democrat and I am not a Republican, but it is clear that Trump abused his power and the only sanction for that is impeachment. 

It is completely irrelevant if House Democrats were watching Trump's every step since the election -- it is their Constitutional duty to do so and it is clear that the Republicans are putting their own party above their duty of their office.

What a joke - if Trump abused his power then President Obama was a serial abuser with the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, Benghazi and then
surveillance of his Hillary's political rivals during the 2016 campaign.

Now there is real abuse of power.

Lol! Uniting the country!!!

Trump named all kinds of people who benefited from his policies such as black, woman, handicapped, you name it and Pelosi and Ericopoly can't even recognize how good and unifying that is. They always get back to some irrelevant, fuzzy issue on how to get rid of the man.

They prefer to push for policies (socialism and communism) being acclaimed by a minority of radicals that have failed their people 100% of the time throughout history.

Would be interesting to know why Ericopoly is no longer a Republican? Apparently that he did become Republican a decade or so ago after having realized he didn't like high taxes in California. Was this a lie?

the problem with people who are smart in or more fields is that they suddenly think they are experts in constitutional law and, specifically, Article II powers.  this is rarely the case

The semblance of civility is gone. we are just a few years away from exchanging blows. we will resemble those countries where they throw chairs & other objects.

I recommend everyone to watch Netflix's documentary "Inequality for all". Both parties have precipitated the collapse of middle class and median incomes. R have superior political instincts to assign blame and keep people clueless. This wont end well for all. The Dems are constantly distracted by fringe LGBTQEABCD & other movements.

I don't agree with everything Paul has to say. But his explanation of the process and the shame that has taken place is spot on.

So you are pivoting and attacking me?  Do you need to act like Trump too?

Well Eric, you were stated by others(not exactly your fault) to be a moderate Republican a while back. You just now say you are an independent. However your immediate, knee jerk response to the hand shake snub was to call Nancy a "professional" which, no truly neutral party would do. Underlying that knee jerk position, can only be a bias that is left leaning and with an inclination to defending how they behave. Its like Sanjeev's "Trump is responsible for Iran shooting down the plane" response. You can side with Trump or Iran/Pelosi, or, a truly neutral third party would just see that they are all jackasses.

Pelosi didnít reach out to shake his hand because she likes him.  It was clearly a professional gesture.  The remark I made, taken in context, was in response to Trumpís snubbing her.  Could I have worded it better, yes.  I donít like Pelosi as House Speaker but refusing to shake the House Speakerís hand was a mark against Trump and was a symbol of Trumpís divisiveness.

The fish rots from the head down.  It needs to begin with Trump but he keeps putting himself first.

I understand that trump's snub of Pelosi's handshake followed Pelosi's snub of trump by not standing with tradition and saying it was her high honor and distinct privilege to invite potus into her chamber.  but the ripping the speech is the height of passive-aggressive weakness.
