45. Who is "doing nothing?"

So if Democrats aren't impeaching him, they are "doing nothing?" False dillema. You seem to be fond of those.

I would much rather have future generations read the list of impeachable offenses on record in history books.


Nixon wasn't impeached, but we know what his impeachable offenses were. Look it up if you don't believe me. We don't need impeachment to damn him to history any more than we need statues of Confederate leaders in town squares to damn the Confederacy to the trash heap of history.

and have his name listed as a president who was impeached than some silly one liner saying Democrats did nothing to stop him because they didn't want to.


Yet another False dillema - unless Dems impeach him, there will be nothing in the history books about him but a "some silly one liner saying Democrats did nothing to stop him because they didn't want to." I would rather have future generations talk about the health care they have, and the education they could afford because Democrats weren't wasting their time trying to please people with a mentality of never ever being satisfied with what they did with an incredibly stupid display of political bad judgement that didn't do anything but make Trump look like a winner.

You keep accusing Democratic leaders of "not wanting to remove him." What evidence do you have that they could be doing something (other than a pointless, futile exercise in political theatre by impeaching him when we know it won't remove him) and they just refuse to. That makes no sense, if one actually keeps informed about what Congress is doing... or just even looks at the homepage of DU..

What actual evidence convinces you that Democratic leaders are not doing everything legally possible to mitigate the damage Trump is doing? None has been offered. That seems more like someone wanting a scapegoat for their own anxiety.

It looks like no actual names of Democratic leadership who "allowing this" are forthcoming, and no one has given examples any concrete things that they aren't doing that they can (other than "Nancy had better impeach him now, or I'm going to remain very very upset," and you've been shown plenty of what they are doing to resist.
