House Democrats have one final shot to drive up public support for impeachment, with a slate of hearings in the House Judiciary Committee beginning next week. But even Democratic lawmakers acknowledge public sentiment might be impossible to move in the weeks before an anticipated historic House vote on impeaching President Donald Trump. “I think people have made up their minds on this in a lot of ways,” said Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), a member of the House Judiciary Committee. “But I think, frankly, what should drive us is the evidence and the facts and our oath of office.” Many Democrats

I'd love to see the evidence and facts these rabid democrats see. The figments of imagination in Schiffs, Nadlers and the pundits at CNN & MSNBC's minds are not facts or evidence.

Democrats, you are already done. Next year, you can forget about that too. Trump will campaign for House members next year, which means Democrats are finished in the House. Democrats have earned their misery.

This entire article is a regurgitation of democrat talking points. Not a single attempt to analyze the actual testimony that came out. Only conclusions in an article that contains not a single quote from a republican member of Congress. It’s propaganda, plain and simple. How one sided can you get?

Time for Kevin McCarthy to move his pieces again, putting a choice of Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, or Matt Gaetz onto the Judiciary Committee. Then let the fireworks begin!

You mean they finally were able to get one of his hotel maids to flip and admit that Trump told her to remove those "Do Not Remove Under Penalty of Federal Law" tags off his hotel mattresses? Impeach 45, Impeach 45! (Sarcasm key now off.)

President Trump should say: ''If you like what we have done for America in my first term- in spite of all the resistance and opposition- wait until you see what we do in my second term!'' ''If you don't like what the democrats have done in my first term, relax. They will be on a short leash during my second term!''

Unless you have not read the transcript, or only listened to Rep. Bull Schiff's opening statement, and never listened to the replies elicited from their "witnesses" by the Republican questions, I presume you'd think their was something wrong. But, we don't just listen to one side of the story, and don't just accept one side of testimony. Also, Americans like and want fairness. I don't believe they have seen a fair hearing which the Democrats and the media don't seem to realize. Lastly, the previous 2 impeachment inquiries weren't run by the Democrats or the Republicans, but handled by an outside council or special prosecutor who was following rules of evidence, right's of the accused to present witnesses, etc... But, I don't think the Democrats could afford to be fair, because they had an agenda.

"...an explosive set of House Intelligence Committee hearings that unearthed evidence suggesting an abuse of power by Trump." I'm still waiting to hear something other than "I assume," "I presumed," "someone told me," "I heard," and "I believe...." When asked point-blank if they had direct knowledge of any illegal dealings, every witness said "no."

I would love to see impeachment move to the Senate. All of the Dem presidential candidates would have to stay in session for the hearings. None of them would be able to campaign. If McConnell would drag it on til next Feb or March only Butt-i-get and Biden would be left to campaign. THAT would frost their cookies. (What did the late night hosts say about Trump running for Pres? Do it just do it-Now it is their turn, Do it Nancy Do it)

FTA: ''... an explosive set of House Intelligence Committee hearings that unearthed evidence suggesting an abuse of power by Trump.'' I would correct that statement by clarifying that no evidence was unearthed. The only thing that happened was that democrats ALLEGED abuse of power, without providing any evidence. Allegations and hearsay are not evidence. Democrats and pundits like to point out that impeachment is just a political, not a legal, proceeding. Even so, allegations may not be confused with evidence.

So we leave" Shiftty Schiff" and head off to "Numb Nuts Nadler". And they think somehow this is going to help their cause? Really? Seriously? You're joking? When pigs fly. Who are you trying to kid? I don't think so, good luck with that. But I have to admit I don't know who is more laughable. Schiff or Nadler.

A super PAC formed to support Cory Booker’s Democratic presidential campaign is shutting down. The group’s founder, San Francisco lawyer Steve Phillips, indicated in a news release Wednesday that Dream United had struggled to raise money. Booker, a New Jersey senator, has publicly disavowed support from super PACs, which aren't required to disclose their donors publicly. Phillips, a former college classmate of Booker’s, said that it became clear while trying to fundraise for Dream United "that the donor community is strictly adhering to Senator Booker’s publicly articulated wishes that he does not welcome independent support."
