    Well, it has been for months. They're just worried about the political implications of running an impeachment hearing, so are big scaredy cats over it.
    Time for them to get some balls and ovaries.
    Keep messing with 45

    I'm not sure if that is the problem. It's pretty hard to impeach someone when the other party and the A/G are doing everything they can think of to keep the investigation from moving forward. After watching that hearing the other day, and how the Republicans acted, I'm no longer sure that impeachment is the best way to go. If all that happens is endless hours of Republican obstruction, how in the world will the Democrats get anything done. I just don't know anymore.

    I've never seen anything remotely like what's going on in the country now. I was in my 20s during the Nixon investigation. The difference between then and now is that Republicans actually listened to factual information and started turning on Nixon. Nixon had, dare I say, the decency to resign. That's not what's happening now. Sure, Trump has committed numerous impeachable offenses in my opinion. It's obvious, but if the Republicans refuse to testify etc., maybe it's best to vote him out of office. I'm not against impeachment. I'm all for it, but I can understand why some Democrats are against it. There is no easy solution to what we are dealing with as a country. I never thought our far from perfect country would ever become a fascist state, but......

    I don't even trust the integrity of our elections. Do you?

    You can't impeach, if you can't investigate and the Trump Admin is one of the most obstructive Admins in US history. And with the GOP giving Trump a blank check, there is nothing to stop them.

    Anyone who is not alarmed and appalled at the blatant flaunting of laws is compliant. Call your congressman (woman) and rattle the rafters. I intent to.

    Maybe the whistleblower was pro-Iranian?

    Moot now, since we know it's about Ukraine.

    Not even a "second amendment solution"?
    That's what Cheato recommended when you have a criminal president.

    The fascinating (and disturbing) part is that now Trump (and his attack dog Rudy) are pushing the narrative that what Biden did was not just shady, but criminal. In his unhinged CNN interview a couple days ago, Rudy went all in on this narrative.

    Of course there's a few things to consider. First, we know that the GOP will seize on just about anything to derail the perceived Democratic front-runner and grip it tighter than a dog with a new chew toy. Second, the GOP and Trump administration have known about the Biden thing for years. Finally, there hasn't been a moment (yet) where Biden was not the Democratic front-runner in this race.

    So by all accounts they should have been pushing the "Biden is the real criminal here" narrative from day one of the campaign. Yet they only hauled out this narrative the nanosecond that the whistle blower report on Trump's call surfaced and made it look very much like he was trying to extort Ukraine.

    Coincidence? Not on your life. Projection? I'm gonna go with that. Are they scared? I'd bet on it.

    The problem here is if they damage Biden with this crap, they will elevate Warren. If it works, Trump will face a lot of angry Biden voters come election day going for Warren out of a sense of outrage and revenge. Trump's best friend in politics today seems to be Do-nothing Pelosi.

    That nickname sounds positively Trumpian.

    Scared or are they taking over for good?

    All this despicable behavior and the conservatives are splashing around in the wallow laughing at how the liberals are reacting.
