An impeachment process against Richard Nixon began in the United States House of Representatives on October 30, 1973, following the "Saturday Night Massacre" episode of the Watergate scandal. The House Judiciary Committee set up an impeachment inquiry staff and began investigations into possible impeachable offenses by Richard Nixon, the 37th President of the United States. The process was formally initiated on February 6, 1974, when the House of Representatives passed a resolution, H.Res. 803, giving the Judiciary Committee authority to investigate whether sufficient grounds existed to impeach Nixon Impeachment process against Richard Nixon - Wikipedia

the anniversary of the infamous Saturday Night Massacre is coming up here real soon . But , don't be fooled by Kevin McCarthy, Fox News , or Trump. There is no set "procedural precedence" for commencing the impeachment process. The impeachment inquiry into Trump is being conducted according to the current House of Representatives rules - as of January 09, 2019.

This is such a stupid “tactic”. I don’t know what it is they think they are going to accomplish with this.

There are 226 representatives on record who support the inquiry. If Pelosi were to hold a vote when they returned from recess, it would pass easily. And then what would they cry about?

This is getting very Nixony. Do whatever you can to keep the information from congress/special council and obstruct justice

Trump thinks he can manipulate the situation by getting the Dems to just vote to make him and the GOP stop whining. The Dems know from his prior history that if you appease him all he does is moves the goal posts.

PS When is he going to release his Tax returns?

Birth Certificate=Obama releases it=not good enough wants the long form
Native ancestry=Trump promises to donate 1 Million dollars to the charity of Warren's choosing if she takes a DNA test and it shows she has Native ancestry. She does it and it does show native ancestry= 6 to 10 generations ago and Trump says he never made the offer.

Have any of you asked yourselves why the democrats are refusing to even take a vote on it?

It's a simple procedural motion that makes it official.

Are they afraid of going on record or something?

So what if Pelosi doesn't want to force Dems in red districts to vote on it? There is no rule or law that says there has to be a vote.

Really don't see your point here. Rules are not the issue in this fake impeachment.

Trump is calling there bluff and saying indict or go home. Shit or get off the pot. He knows they have nothing.
