Impeachment 2.0 Is Passed In House

It’s déjà vu all over again. President Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives for the SECOND time.

The vote was a foregone conclusion with Democrats in control of the House, but this time some Republicans joined in.

The House voted 232-197 to impeach the president. Ten Republicans joined with Democrats.”

Trump has just one week left in office, but the supporters of the impeachment push say Trump is too dangerous to stay in office a minute longer. The impeachment resolution condemns Trump for spreading lies that he won the election in a landslide and whipping up a crowd of supporters in Washington D.C. before the riot that killed five people, including a Capitol Police officer.”


The 10 Republicans are listed here:


Now, people of good faith and good conscience can argue whether or not impeachment is the appropriate remedy. Jonathan Turley says no, National Review’s editors say yes. I am sure everyone has an opinion on what should or should not have been done. But the vote is now part of history, Nancy Pelosi has picked her impeachment managers, and now we wait.

And when I say we wait, I mean WAIT. Because Senate Majority Leader (for one more week) Mitch McConnell has said no, he’s not calling the Senate back into session now to hold the world’s fastest impeachment trial.


This means that an impeachment trial would begin when Donald Trump is no longer President of the United States. Again, if he is too dangerous to be president for a whole week more, why did it take Pelosi and Company a full week to vote on impeachment? (They wanted Vice President Pence to do the dirty work for them, of course.) And now that he is on double secret impeachment, he is… still president for the next week.

While you may think that President Trump needed some kind of public rebuke (a censure vote, as suggested by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, would have been best), is this kind of political theater really what the country needs?

Probably not, but it’s what we got.

    Trump: “People are saying that they’ve never seen anything like it before, a president impeached two times. It’s like nothing ever before, I know it’s true and you know it’s true. And they say that more people from my own party voted for impeachment than any other impeachment in american history. It’s incredible and they say it could never be done!

    And here I was thinking that the policy of “We’re going to keep holding trials until we get the correct verdict” was the province of Third World shit holes.

    The Australian Cartoonist Jonathon Leak – he who drew the famous cartoon of that epitome of manners and courtesy Serena W having a tantrum – drew this cartoon recently about another ‘lady’ of ‘character’ and ‘grace’:
