Description

House Democratic leaders have introduced two articles of impeachment against President Trump: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. But they did not include obstruction of justice. In today’s episode, we delve into the unseen fight among Democrats over whether two articles of impeachment was enough. Guest: Nicholas Fandos, who covers Congress for The New York Times.

I don't think that it gets through the senate because it needs at least 20 republican votes out of 53 republican majority , unless mike pence gets ambitious for the presidency and turns the republicans against trump , for that end I don't think that the democrats should demonstrate pence as guilty during the impeachment process at all and lay all the blame on trump. However don't forget trump is a billionaire and can do tricky things with his money.

It is absolutely incredible that Democrats are going to attempt to impeach a sitting president, that 63 million Americans voted for, on charges that they themselves had trouble identifying... This gets ZERO republican votes. some Dems may even defect
