House Democrats Are Now Saying They Are “Uncomfortable” With Impeachment

In a recent Politico report, a small group of “vulnerable” House Democrats is suggesting the idea of censuring President Trump instead of impeaching him. The group of ten included Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Anthony Brindisi (D-N.Y.), and Ben McAdams (D-Utah.).

Trending Politics added that this revelation came “shortly after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would be filing articles of impeachment against President Trump, accusing him of ‘obstructing Congress’ and ‘abuse of power.’”

According to the lawmakers, the idea of censure is to offer an alternative to impeachment. That way, it could attract some Republican support and help Democrats avoid an extensive impeachment trial in the Senate.

Pelosi, however, publicly ruled out censure. “I think censure is just a way out. If you want to go, you gotta go. If the goods are there, you must impeach. Censure is nice, but it is not commensurate with the violations of the Constitution should we decide that’s the way to go,” she said in June.

Despite this, some of the moderate Democrats have privately talked about the possibility of censure for weeks, “but the conversations ramped up as top Democrats announced they were moving ahead with articles of impeachment this week,” said Politico.

    They are uncomfortable because the American people are not in favor of all this ridiculous bs.

      As they should, knowing full well once the Articles of Impeachment reach the Senate for trial or has the same chance of success as does a snowball in the H…E…Double Hockey Sticks place!

      For everybody who says “Impeach the Ba$tard!” …they forget that what happens in the House is only half of the battle…once Impeached, to be removed from office, he MUST BE convicted of said Articles!.By a TWO THIRDS majority of the entire Senate. That’s SIXTY SEVEN of ONE HUNDRED Senators voting to convict for the process to have…I’m their eyes…a successful conclusion! Conversely, ONLY Thirty Four have to vote NOT to convict for the process to FAIL!!

    And the Senate get the opportunity to call witnesses of their choice this time. The Witnesses that were not allowed by the House because their dirty little secrets might be revealed. Let’s get this party started!

    He is trying to make this Country better and needs to be left alone by the Democrats.
    The Democrats don’t want him to be re-elected.
