Shouldn’t they vote to impeach first?

As with the non-passed obamacare, Nancy will “deem” the President impeached.

Normally, you would have this vote, then the hearings in the House would start up. However, once you do this....subpoena powers also exist for the Republicans in these committees. Presently, they don’t have these powers. So the intent....whether right or wrong...is to pretend you are having regular inquiry panels, and try to vote this through to the House floor, without ever giving the Republicans in the House a chance to bring counter-evidence in.

Now, if you sit and think about it....this means that the Senate hearing (if they accept this paperwork)....could go on for months. There....Trump and his staff....plus the Republicans, could go and subpoena dozens of people.

With Roberts stuck as the moderator, there’s virtually nothing going to happen for that period of time with the Supreme Court. And if they really stall this through to January before they hand it to the Senate....well, this gets into April or May before it ends with the acquittal.

“Shouldn’t they vote to impeach first?”

No, the narrative’s been set.

EVERY faithful Hussein Head, and I’ll bet a lot of Republicans, already believe an impeachment inquiry is underway.

There is a procedural reason they have not that most people overlook.

If there was a vote, the committees conducting the House investigations would then be forced to allow Republican Committee members to subpoena exonerating witnesses.Without the vote, Republicans on these committees do not have the power of subpoena, only the Democrats do. It is “just an investigation.” Not an impeachment per se.

No no no.

Sentence first, then the trial.
