Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) called for the impeachment of President Trump on the House floor today. Realistically, how much of a chance do Democrats have of achieving their goal of impeaching the president?

What did he do? What did he do to want them to impeach him?

If it's something he said, that's the worst justification for an impeachment. It's like saying I'm going to kill the neighbor's dog if it pees on our yard again. It doesn't literally mean I'm going to do that, people take things too seriously

The democrats would not be the ones impeaching Mr. Trump. They are the minority in both chambers. It will be the republicans that bring impeachment to a vote.

Mr Green was a poor choice for messenger. He kissed his committee appointments, good office location, etc goodby. Hope he was told of silent repercussions in Washington before hand.

Republicans are the party of stupid. He'll be there. They're so drunk with power, they'll do whatever they can to stay there. Democrats would do the same but they're wimpy. We're so fucked. God this country is so stupid.

Even if the Democrats and their feverish fervor to impeach Trump kickstarts the impeachment proceedings, the GOP controlled Congress will be loathe to impeach the man who brought them in on his coat tails. Plus, the "progressive" wing of the left would have a collective heart attack as Pence neared the presidency. Suddenly they'd unite with the Trump supporters.

No evidence, just a pissed off Comey expressing a stupid "he said, I said" opinion. Then the literally insane media thinking they're smelling blood and hoping to unset the guy who beat their pet candidate talking in fake serious tones about "impeachment" and "Watergate". These people are both crazy and evil.

Zero. He would have to have committed a crime to be impeached, and he has not done so. He has made blunders and misstatements, to be sure, but he has not committed any crimes.

Tom, if they DO impeach him, wouldn't Pence be in charge? Would you be in favor of that? He's a lot closer to Cruz than DJT is, after all! Lol

At this point, I wish they'd just do it & get it over with. If that's the hill they choose to die on, get on with it all-the-freakin-ready & stop *threatening* it! There is NO credible basis for the action but if they are just *determined* to finish what they started this last election season, go for it. I'm sure as hell am not going to stand in their way. The threat started BEFORE HE WAS EVEN SWORN INTO OFFICE! (Let's make Congress even *more* conservative!)

Just DO IT or shut up about it & get to work doing what you are *supposed* to be doing! *This* isn't that.

I'm not sure their point is to impeach him, Star. After all, do liberals REALLY want Pence in charge?! He's SO much more conservative than Trump! Lol

I think they're just doing everything they can to try to cripple DJT's presidency so that they can make it look like he's not kept his promises. They're trying to distract him, but I don't think it's working! Lol

Which is WHY I wish they'd stop threatening & just do it already! It would come to nothing regardless but at least there would be satisfaction in saying, "you did that already. Shut up." 🙄

THEY know they have nothing or they WOULD have already started proceedings. If they had any proof of any kind that would stand up to any sincere scrutiny there would be little stopping them.

But anyone paying any attention can see that isn't even the goal.

He will be assassinated before he is impeached.

I said less than 50%. Even if everything that's being investigated is proven true, the Republican controlled house and Senate wouldn't precede with impeachment. Even if Trump had shot Comey in the middle of the street instead of firing him, his minions and republicans in the house and Senate will make excuses and blame someone else.

The media cannot impeach POTUS. Only Congress can. Further, Congress cannot legally impeach without grounds. They have none. Lots of unsourced unsubstantiated accusations, assertions, propaganda & gossip. No empirical fact.

Right. But the media can sway public opinion to approve or disapprove of something. If the public is crying out for it, Congress could act. If the public doesn't have the stomach for it, because the media portrays it as a witch-hunt or a waste of taxpayer money, as in the case of Bill Clinton, then they will turn against Congress.

That would still require a majority in Congress willing to ride that train regardless the outcome & the numbers just aren't there... public pressure or not. There is a *minority* screaming like banshees. It looks & sounds & feels like a majority, but there is insufficient evidence that is fact.

I kinda wish they'd pull the trigger on it though. He hasn't been in office six months yet & I'm sick to death of the threat. Poo or get off the pot! If you are SO SURE you got the goods on him, throw down. 🙄 Not MY political career or party on the line. Go for it already.

That's my stance, also, jstahl! I don't think they want impeachment because they def don't want Pence. I think this is just tactics to try to distract DJT and hinder the work he's trying to do, so they can say he didn't keep his promises.

No chance in hell. Unlike the Dems the republicans that are in control of congress actually have some principles. They'd only let that happen if there was an actual reason to. And there won't be.

Heck even if they get control of the house to begin the process no way in hell the senate convicts.

I'd like a strong conservative. Though generally the VP position is used to fill the "gaps" of the primary candidate. Reach out to constituents they wouldn't otherwise appeal too.

Ideally I want Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, maybe representative Mia Love? She made a strong impression on me during her speech at a the march for life.

Honestly I'd vote for that ticket no matter who his #2 was.
