Congress is not just "The Democrats"

Stop the madness and stop letting “them” get away with the Democrats/Pelosi bumper-sticker bullshit.

It is incumbent upon BOTH SIDES to hold those accountable in the impeachment process.

1. We won the House, we don't need their permission to launch an inquiry

The sad fact is our leadership has been so muddled on the question of impeachment that our own house is divided on the issue. If Democrats were unified they could proceed.

3. Permission is not the issue. Responsibility for impeachment is.

The responsibility is with BOTH SIDES. Stop letting Republicans off the hook with “the Democrats “ bullshit.

2. Oh please...in this instance it just comes down to Democratic leadership not acting.

Nancy could have started impeachment hearings as soon as the Mueller report came out. She didn't. She hasn't. And given history, I'm not sure she will.

13. Who expects them to act responsibly? Wrong actions by one group does not excuse inaction...

...by another. Do what's right or make it clear you won't.

16. So if Republicans are not expected to act responsibly and get zero flack

why the double standard for Democrats?

17. At this moment, Republicans couldn't start impeachment hearings if they wanted to...

...which they don’t, and I wouldn’t expect them to because of the last decade of Republican idiocy, intransigence, and outright assholeishness.

Democrats are in charge of the House. They CAN get it started. They aren’t for asinine “political” reasons. It’s not a double standard. Our side has an advantage here. Use it.

5. I think the same thing every time such statements are made. Congress is congress.

It just goes to show how powerful Fox Noise is at framing partisanship.

BOTH SIDES to hold those accountable in the impeachment process.

7. Nonsense.

Congressional Democrats don't get off the hook simply because the House Republican minority won't act. Get real.

8. We can begin process without the other side

It's not that we are letting them off the hook, but we see that the Republicans will put party over country. The onus is on the Democrats not the follow suit. We have to show the electorate that we are the party that puts country first.

9. Absolutely. We need to demand the Senate do its job too.

We must not let them abdicate their constitutional
duty to cover for the scumbag.

I'm talking to you Mitch McConnell.

He needs to be the target of our demands.

18. I agree with you.

A couple of days ago, KC DC was questioning one of her guests about how they were going to get tough with those Democrats that were not in line on some subject or other?

I recall thinking: What about the Republicans?!

They have become trained by the Republican police, sometimes it seems?
