While the procedures are slightly D.C. insider-sounding, this vote, forced by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, represents the first time the lower Chamber of Congress has officially gone on record with regard to the impeachment of Trump, and it forces vulnerable Democrats who were waffling on whether to publicly back removal of the president from office by force on the record in support of the radical leftist wing of the party.

Interesting if this hurts the vulnerable D’s and helps the R’s in general.
The politics are fascinating.
All other issues have been pushed to the side to impeach.
Do they really think that the R controlled Senate will remove a sitting President?
It’s never happened before.
And, what will be the results to Ds of a failed removal?
Could it be the end of the D’s as a party?
As a little L libertarian, I hope that the Libertarian Party can move up to second place as I think the D’d will dissolve into: a radical left socialist party (20%), a green party (10%), and a fragment of its former self a alternative to the R’s (20%). Hopefully the L’s will inherit 25% of the leftover and the rest just abandon politics entirely.
One can only hope.
