We all know the Republican-controlled senate is not going to vote him out of office and he may even win the next election, but this will forever be marked in American history books.

Possible future jeopardy question:

He's the only U.S. president to be re-elected following his impeachment ….

Interesting! I haven't been keeping up with that sort of thing; the radio is on the fritz again. But I didn't know Trump had already almost gotten impeached.

The article seemed a bit triumphal, eh? I thought (for what it's worth) that all presidents found their way to history. Trump would definitely have found a way to history in the same way that Andrew Johnson did, folllowing after Lincoln. Obama was historic for being the first nonwhite president (I have a hard time seeing how they get "black" out of "coffee-and-cream" complexions. Then again, Trump is orange and everyone thinks he's white.) And Trump comes after Obama so he would get remembered.

So the thing was a bit silly to say it was the definitive way Trump would be cementing a place in history. But it was commonsense enough to report that the Democrats certainly did pass articles of impeachment.

Guess we'll see what comes of this.

He is the only President to be impeached twice.

The Grand Jury is still in session.

No indictment (impeachment) yet.

The House is the Grand Jury. The Senate will be the Judge.

In the past 3 years I wonder what else they've done besides trying to nail trump. It seems like that's been their full time job.

No, no, it's not! I want to keep going on about how what's going on in the House is a kangaroo trial and thus they're a bunch of traitors! (/sarc)

Here ya go:

Quote:
House Democrats have passed nearly 400 bills. Trump and Republicans are ignoring them.


https://www.vox.com/2019/11/29/20977735 ... rats-trump

Quote:
For months, President Donald Trump has fired off tweet missives accusing House Democrats of “getting nothing done in Congress,” and being consumed with impeachment.

Trump may want to look to the Republican-controlled Senate instead. Democrats in the House have been passing bills at a rapid clip; as of November 15, the House has passed nearly 400 bills, not including resolutions. But the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee estimates 80 percent of those bill have hit a snag in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is prioritizing confirming judges over passing bills.

Congress has passed just 70 bills into law this year. Granted, it still has one more year in its term, but the number pales in comparison to recent past sessions of Congress, which typically see 300-500 bills passed in two years (and that is even a diminished number from the 700-800 bills passed in the 1970s and 1980s).

Ten of those 70 bills this year have been renaming federal post offices or Veterans Affairs facilities, and many others are related to appropriations or extending programs like the National Flood Insurance Program or the 9/11 victim compensation fund.

Even if Trump survives impeachment, I think the general public has been made aware of how dirty he and his henchmen are, and how blindly partisan his defenders are. Reelection may be out of reach.

Americans of mixed race, with one parent of African descent, have always been labeled black. It's much more a matter of cultural perception than actual physical characteristics.

Democratic Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey is planning to switch parties to become a Republican over outrage over Democrat impeachment efforts.
