"House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler said House Democrats will “likely” subpoena President Trump's former national security adviser John Bolton and continue with more investigations after today's historic impeachment vote.
“I think it’s likely yes,” he told CNN of issuing a Bolton subpoena.
Asked what they will look at, Nadler said, “We are talking about everything,” referring to continuing all the probes that have been launched since last year."
As predicted, the democrats are not accepting the acquital or legal process that has just taken place. They are continuing on the same path of the last 3 years.
The most ironic, hypocritical part of it all is that they charged Trump with abuse of power. Holy Cow! In American history (that I know about) there has never been a group of politicians from 1 party that abused their power more than this group.
And they are doing it for the American people and to protect the Constitution............while Pelosi prays for Trump and Schiff tells us that if Trump were a democrat, he would be impeaching him.
They decided to impeach him right after he was elected and will continue for another 4 years if he gets elected again. Another huge irony is that people of the fence with Trump have actually become supporters because of the corrupt, partisan and unfair manner in which the democrats are using to try to crush him.
metmike: Doesn't matter that the senate voted to acquit and it should be over now or that the American people voted in 2016 and will again in 2020.............these self appointed, omnipotent beings have decided they know what's best and will impose their will on us..........ends justifies whatever unethical means they use.
Just like the Mueller investigation results were never accepted or anything else that doesn't show Donald Trump is not a criminal.
In the US, we are supposed to determine the president at the ballot box. If your person lost and you don't like it, run a better candidate than you did last time. Spending 4 years trying to destroy the person from the other party that won is destroying our country!
Please..........can we just abide by our democracy and Constitution and stop pretending that your destroying our democracy and Constitution is somehow being done to uphold it.
It's a very sad example of the destructiveness of hate..........easily the most destructive emotion. You want revenge. You want to hurt the one you hate. You want bad things to happen to them..............even to the point of hoping America falters under Trumps leadership(and blocking efforts by him to accomplish his agenda) because it will hurt him................and Americans.
Hate does that. It blinds us to realities that would ordinarily control our actions using ethical standards.
The 2019/20 impeachment hearings and trial are over.
The 2016/17/18/19 Mueller investigation is long over.
The 2017 impeachment vote is long, long over.
Please, can you stop this insanity and go back to focusing on what we elected you into office to do?
If you read or heard some of the things Trump stated in his victory speech, it had to make you cringe.
After being indicted on impeachment and having the opportunity to put things behind him and not be too offensive in his speech, his not impeached victory speech might be...probably is his worst speech ever.
Everything that defines his weak point........character flaws and meanness came out with a vengeance. It certainly makes it understandable why so many people hate him. He is the most easy to hate guy on the planet. With signs of him turning the corner and possibly getting enough support now to be elected in November..........speeches like this can only hurt him/be set backs when people on the fence listen to him and his confrontational, hateful and divisive words.
If not for his massively superior agenda and good job he does running the country based on policies that are best for the United States,. I would be a never Trumper because of speeches like he gave yesterday.
This guy below from CNN is usually very unfair with his articles on President Trump(finds dozens of silly reasons to nullify Trumps positives and magnifies his negatives with twisted interpretations) and hates his guts but I agree with most of his points this time.
BTW, I don't think deplorable speeches like Trump gave are impeachable items.
They are disgraceful of course but they make up part of who candidate Trump is and its up to the people of the United States to decide in November if giving deplorable speeches repulses/repels them more than his positive agenda attracts them.............to vote or not to vote for him.
The democrats job is to work to do things for the American people(which is what Trump does). Their job is not to take away the right of citizens to vote for a man with massive character flaws, with an abuse of their congressional power and attempts to influence elections(strange that they accuse Trump of what they are actually doing for real).
The exception would be if he committed an impeachable crime.......but he didn't even come close to what Obama did with Iran and Benghazi(which did not deserve impeachment).
Note the circumstances with Obama and Iran below............which did not result in the republicans impeaching him for it:
So do your jobs democrats and let us people decide who we want as president in November.
