WASHINGTON (AP) — A House chairman on Monday subpoenaed former White House Counsel Don McGahn as Democratic leaders moved to deepen their investigation of President Donald Trump while bottling up talk among their rank-and-file of impeaching him.

Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler was one of six powerful committee leaders making their case on a conference call with other House Democrats late in the day that they are effectively investigating Trump-related matters ranging from potential obstruction to his personal and business taxes.

They should look to be retaining attorneys for themselves. They are going to need them very soon.

I hope the media keeps driving their party towards impeachment. Trump re-election will be much easier when America can see the Democrats are doing zero positive work FOR Americans and instead are self serving hacks - people don’t vote for self serving hacks.

So, Pelosi disregards her party leadership (Omar, Cortez, Tlaib) and does not want impeachment. We’ll see how that goes....

Their candidates will all have to answer the question, one way or another. They will have to do some really great pretzel logic to keep their crazy base from bolting....................

Barr is doing some probes of his own that will be very problematic for high profile Democrats who formed the core of the cabal against Trump. Some very damaging revelations are on the way. I’m looking forward to some perp walks.

Because it was about impeachment only as long as they could frame him.

He’s too smart for that. His record is clean, shocking to them.
They lost.

It’s still about de legitimizing Trump”s presidency

It’s about Trump’s faults. Any they can find or make up as they search for any illegal activity they can find or devise.

Hillary failed to get the White House and she failed to frame him

She’s diminishing. But she’s still got flying monkeys.

I think the crazy base will stick with them as they are so full of hatred and have nowhere to go. It's the Independents and swing voters who they will fail to attract. The Democrat Party has been forced to move so far Left they cannot recover because their "moderates" are afraid to speak up and challenge the new radicals who have become the "thought" leaders and who garner the attention of the liberal media.

Well of course - they want the endless headlines but they SURE don’t want to be on record voting for impeachment.

We win either way, if they impeach or they don’t impeach. What’s dangerous is if they don’t do either one.

President Trump should now start declassifying and releasing documents once a week—keep the Democrats knocked off balance and reeling. The FISA applications, Congressional sexual harassment payoffs, anything that can shine a spotlight on their criminality.

For your perp walk this maybe the longest in U S history. If they spied on Trump why not Romney?

At some point a sane elected Democrat or two (if they exist) is gonna realize their party has pinned itself into a corner with their big lie and it won’t end well for them.

They spied on him, too. In my opinion.

Romney is just too much of a fag to fight back.

They know they can't win on impeachment, it will die in the Senate.

If they do that, they have shot their wad, and it is all over. After all, if they run through the impeachment cycle once, it will fail, and fail quickly.

Then what? They have all this time on their hands until the next election, and nothing to do.

If they simply continually run probes, that is preferable to them...they can run them all at the same time, sequentially, and bring the media full force into them. They may be stupid idiots, but even stupid idiots stumble on the right path to true corruption occasionally.

I think this is what they will do (and ARE doing) to complement their "probes" :

See my post above. I believe it is more damaging to Trump and our interests if they don’t impeach Trump.

They cannot win in the Senate. Everyone knows this, including the dumbasses trying to make it happen. All that would do is make them shoot their wad too early.

For them, they may try probe after probe after probe, then initiate impeachment proceedings leading up to the election in 2020.
