    A small group of vulnerable House Democrats is floating the longshot idea of censuring President Donald Trump instead of impeaching him, according to multiple lawmakers familiar with the conversations.

    Those Democrats, all representing districts that Trump won in 2016, huddled on Monday afternoon in an 11th-hour bid to weigh additional — though unlikely — options to punish the president for his role in the Ukraine scandal as the House speeds toward an impeachment vote next week.

    The Dems have the goods on each other. That's how they keep each other in line.

    Pelosi & Biden both had sons who took a lot of money home from the Ukraine.

    You want to support your party so your party supports you.

    When asked about the Senate vote if the impeachment proceeds, Pelosi said,
    In other words, she's counting on the negative publicity against Trump that exposing some of his acts while POTUS could generate. However, the whole process will blow up in the Dems' faces when it's all over, just as the failed impeachment of Clinton blew up in the GOP's faces in 1996-7. The Dems could lose a significant number of House seats next year, as the GOP will trumpet the huge Dem expenditure of taxpayer $$s on hearings, inquiries, & the impeachment itself, all for nothing.

    Would't it be the cat's meow if enough Ds bolted the party & voted "NO" on impeachment & killed the "movement"?:eek::Laugh (Perfect ending for the "Three Stooges")
    Not anticipating, just dreaming!!:Smile:Thumbsup

    At any rate, I AM hoping that after the Nov election the D party will be nothing but a shadow of it's current existence!!!:Devilish

    Too much to hope for. That would involve democrats actually showing some sense.

    There are several who only want to censure him
    Of course, the reason would be that they are in a red district - and will be up, of course for election next year.

    I don't see that Trump did anything illegal. It was Pelosi and Biden who sent their deadhead kids to loot the Ukraine while the Clintons took 145 million from the Russians. Correct me if I am wrong.
