So now you want to change the subject?  Trump is currently losing to every Democratic front runner.  It’s likely to only get worse as he continues to unravel and make desperate moves like the last couple of days.

We'll have to wait and see.  8)

Exactly. You have to follow the rules of law.
The democrats have not. Let's have a vote for impeachment, not this make believe "inquiry."
Vote, so the republicans can subpoena witnesses.
You are too chicken because the republicans will unravel the truth about the "russian" collusion conspiracy.

It's obvious you have no idea how the impeachment process works as laid out in the US Constitution

It’s only House rules they need to follow, and no vote is necessary.

"unconstitutional impeachment inquiry"

Article I, Section 2, Clause 5: The House of Representatives ... shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.

Just remember, there has been NO VOTE!!



Here is a look at what impeachment is and why it doesn’t necessarily mean removal from office.

How does impeachment work?

Impeachment was established by the framers of the Constitution as a way to accuse a president of a crime and to hold a trial to determine if he is guilty of that crime. The Constitution lays out two specific actions, treason and bribery, that could lead to impeachment and removal of a president from office.

The system also allows for a broader category to accuse a president of crime, although that category is more vague.

A president can also be charged with and found guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” What exactly constitutes high crimes and misdemeanors is not defined in the Constitution, making impeachment on that basis more difficult.

By design, it is not easy to get rid of a president.

Here are the steps in the process for impeaching a president:

First, an impeachment resolution must be introduced by a member of the House of Representatives.
   
The speaker of the House must then direct the U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary (or a special committee) to hold a hearing on the resolution to decide whether to put the measure to a vote by the full chamber and when to hold such a vote.
   
A simple majority of the Judiciary Committee must approve the resolution.
   
If the Judiciary Committee approves the resolution, it moves to a full vote on the House floor.
   
 If a simple majority of the those present and voting in the House approve an article of impeachment, then the president is impeached.
   
 The procedure then moves to the Senate where a “trial” is held to determine if the president committed a crime. There is no set procedure for the trial. How it is conducted would be set by the Senate leadership.
   
 Members of the House serve as “managers” in the Senate trial. Managers serve a similar role as prosecutors do in a criminal trial, they present evidence during the procedure.
   
The president would have counsel to represent him at the Senate process.
   
The chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court presides over the trial.
   
Senators listen to the evidence presented, including closing arguments from each side and retire to deliberate.
   
Senators then reconvene and vote on whether the president is guilty or not guilty of the crimes he is accused of. It takes a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict. If the president is found guilty, he is removed from office and the vice president is sworn-in as president.

All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

That is a vote on an impeachment resolution, also known as articles of impeachment.  This has not yet gotten that far.  Right now, the House is just investigating and collecting evidence.

Ok. Pepsi.

Out of the  3 previous presidential impeachments in
U.S. history what did they all have in common?
Answer:
There was a full vote in the house of representatives.
Has Pelosi asked for that full vote yet?
No.
Why may you ask?
If Pelosi would follow known precedence and procedures,
that would allow the minority republicans to submit
subpoenas and ask relevant questions to defend their
President.
Kind of a one sided cluster fuck headed by one
of the most corrupt political parties and main stream
medias in history.

The House makes its rules and the rules have changed since the Clinton impeachment.
