With Democrats set to reclaim control of the House in January and President Trump already infuriating them with the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speculation is rampant over whether they will use that power to pursue impeachment against the president -- or even Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who wants to be speaker, has pushed back on pressure from the base to pursue impeachment, saying earlier this week "that's not what our caucus is about" even as Democratic lawmakers make clear they will pursue other investigations of the administration.

But that pressure from the left to wield the House majority to go after Trump has not gone away.

Billionaire Tom Steyer, who has floated the possibility of a 2020 presidential run and pumped millions into supporting Democratic congressional candidates, told CNN on Wednesday that House Democrats must confront what he called a “lawless” president.

He renewed his call for impeachment proceedings. Steyer months ago launched the “NeedtoImpeach.com” website and is one of the most prominent liberal advocates for ousting Trump....

Senator Grassley’s report came out stating the lies. Since the Senate is Republican, Trump could now present another appointment without as many bumps in the road. The Dems. want to waste money and time, to destroy someone for political purposes? They want to satisfy their left-wing base.

Well, given the options of A) Governing, or B) Drama for the stupid, Option B is low hanging fruit with better pay.

What will they impeach them for?
For not confessing to something that didn't happen?

We do or should do that regardless.

They can make all the noise they want but they won’t be able to do anything.

“ALL bark, no bite.”, they will be like a barking dog on a leash and/or behind a fence.

Investigate and impeach Kavanaugh?

I heard that the Judiciary committee issued a final report on Kavanaugh the other day, but it was off the radar in the news.

But that report documented all of the allegations, documented that there was no corroboration or any evidence of the incidents alleged to have happened.

So if they really want to launch some impeachment of Kavanaugh, where exactly are they going to produce any evidence from which to start said impeachment?

And isn’t it a fact, that you can’t impeach a federal official for events which happened before they were in office, that impeachment is supposed to be for charges of criminal behavior in his/her official duties in that office?

Which would mean that investigating teenagers rolling around on a bed 36 years ago would not be impeachable, even if liberals fervently believe it was the worst crime against humanity ever committed, and fervently believe it happened just as Christine Ford told us?

The left-wing Democrat Media must continue to use the talking points, until they receive new talking points. They are like mindless robots, saying things over and over... the trained parrots they are.

The Democrats have lived their entire lives protected and supported by the Media.

They make decisions as if the Media still had control over the information flow in the United States.

That is a false assumption.

President Trump has shown that you can beat the Media cartel.

Nope stand back and laugh at them. Far more devastating and with the senate in our hands anything the house does is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing

I hope so. It might be the end of their party. However, what new party will emerge from their ashes?
