1. Almost all of them are in districts Trump won, in some cases

 

by double digits. That's why they're on that list. Tulsi Gabbard was on the list which was the main one with no justification since her district is very blue.

8. I doubt Trump won district 1 in NM. Torres Small is a real embarrassment for our state.

2. Tulsi Gabbard flipped - says she favors impeachment as of today

The others will come around, I'm not worried.

4. Yep that's clever idea

This one I'm using isn't actually printed, I stole it from twitter. I suspect that the McDonald's corporate legal dept. would have a problem if this were ever printed and distributed.

5. True, but...

Peterson, considered one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress, represents a sprawling, agriculture-heavy district in western Minnesota that Trump won by 30 percentage points. Peterson himself won reelection by a 52% to 48% margin in 2018, and faces a stiff challenge from former GOP Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach in 2020.


This may not be the greatest Democrat in DC, but he is representing his district and could easily be thrown out next year. Should we insist he commit suicide by endorsing impeachment when his vote may not be needed? The other 10 are pretty much in the same situation. Dem congress critters in red districts are an endangered species and should be protected, not hunted.

Except Tulsi. She changed to pro impeachment for a similar reason-- she is being primaried in a blue district.

11. If done with precision and speed

No Democrat nor patriotic American should oppose impeachment hearings. If political expediency is allowed to dictate ethical and moral conduct or allegiance to the Constitution then they do not belong in any elected office. Stop being driven by Republican created memes. This will not be good for Trump. It will be good for the USA, for all people regardless of political affiliation.

7. I no longer care

The votes are already there. Don't need them.

9. If it's okay with Nancy, and I imagine it is, then fine.

She has 2020 constantly on her mind. We must hold the house.

Just imagine where we'd be today without the blue wave of the midterms...

10. Updated: Gabbard, Allred (D-Texas) and Conor Lamb (D-PA)

This article has been updated to reflect that Gabbard, Reps. Colin Allred (D-Texas) and Conor Lamb (D-Pa.) now support an impeachment inquiry.
