They are based on lies. Why wouldn't you?
Should be a no brainer. Should be accomplished by unanimous vote among the non-commies in 30 seconds.
Trump should come out against this IMO.
A speech where he says that these should stay on public record to forever reflect what happens when the congress is taken over by corrupt actors and allowed to operate as a banana republic should then be followed up by a per inditement rebuke of the grounds for the impeachment and closed by reminding the public that this shit stain the DNC left on our nation is only succeeded by the DNC's Klu Klux Klan shit stain.
No. Republicans should do what they can to right the wrong carried out by corrupt democrats. History will still record the Democrat’s corruption.
You want to remove from the record the impeachment trial that proved he didn't incite an insurrection... so that you can blame him for jan 6 and remove him from the 2024 ballot.
Nahh. They're already on record, and so are the absolutely partisan and wholly debunked reasons under which he was impeached.
Time to right those wrongs.
The demokkkrats want to remove from the record that Trump was CLEARED of inciting an insurrection in the second impeachment trial.
No trace of a trial, no not guilty verdict for jan 6.
There are already new stories saying that him talking about election fraud led to jan 6 and that's enough to remove him from the 2024 ticket. They are trying a similar thing with Kari Lake right now.
Cuz Rino cucks?! lol
What a cocksucker, Trump did him a favor by appointing his wife DOT secretary.
And then he got Shanghai'd
as is tradition
She at least didn't fuck everything up like the incumbent.
Wait til you get a load of the incompetent faggot they've got now..
MaYOR PeTE BOOT-EdGe-eDge!
Good thing only the House has that power.
There was no conviction dumbass
It would require new legislation, the article says that.
Honestly, it's not a hill to die on, but he wasn't convicted, so both impeachments don't hold any weight, it doesn't stop him from running or being sworn it. I'd rather they focus on much more important matters, like ending the flood of money to the Ukraine, or reigning in Obama's people in the Oval Office. They have a LOT of work to do, just to keep our collective heads above water, and this just strikes me of tit for tat nonsense, not real work. Maybe after getting something done, they can do this.
You know, like FREE THE JAN 6 PRISONERS.
Actually you might be right. Is there anything anywhere where a impeachment could be pulled back and totally blank out what was sent to the senate. The senate would have to do the same too.
Senate vote failed, nothing to reverse there. House should be able to unilaterally expunge the record in their own chamber.
McTurtle is in the Senate, and both times, the Senate acquitted Trump of all charges, he'd be liable for impeachment himself to even try something like that. Learn how the impeachment process works. What you said is meaningless and empty rhetoric.
As a tip - you should use a screen name that isn't 4chan specific, if you want people to take you seriously.
What the f.ck is there to 'weigh'??? Should be a slam effing dunk.
Better late than never. They are both illegitimate and based on total lies.
Is something like this required to go through the senate?
Senate convicts House Impeaches. Civics 101
Senate tries. They've never convicted, although Johnson survived by one vote.
I had a shitty civics teacher, plus I wasn’t the best student. I know how impeachment works but I wasn’t sure how reverse impeachment worked but am assuming it would be the same.
Reverse impeachment isn’t a thing. It would be entirely unprecedented, not that its legal validity means anything considering the impeachment itself has no legal meaning once he’s been acquitted by the Senate.
Honestly no idea, but my hot take: it didn't survive the Senate to begin with, so it'd be stupid if it has to now. It is our govt, though...
No. And it also doesn’t matter in any way.
Doesn’t matter that they expunge?
No. Everyone knows it's bullshit.
No. Senate didnt impeach either time or trump would have been removed from office.
This is house issue.
Also makes 0 difference either way as he is eligible to run 2024 and ya. They should be going into covid/ukraine with magnifying glasses.
Whats the point? Impeachment doesn't mean anything.
This has one purpose: it looks good to the maga crowd, but has no chance of changing anything/passing so it's an easy virtue signal to point at next election cycle.
It'll pass the House. And it doesn't matter except that it forces the media and the libs to admit the House has officially expunged two fake impeachments.
No it doesn't. The media will never mention it, and therefore the libs will never even hear about it.
Who cares what the MSM reports. The record will show that the 2 sham impeachments were politically motivated and were based on lies.
Exactly. The media will never touch it, in fact they’ll only continue to refer to Trump as twice impeached, because if you say a lie enough times eventually it becomes truth.
Just think one step beyond
It's a worthwhile venture.
I'd love to see it. But there are enough RINOs in the House to not make this happen -- even though they should.
Lol she's such a piece of shit
This article is from two weeks ago, but whatev.
Thanks. I missed the archive from two weeks ago too, but whatev.
Thanks, fren. That was my attitude, too: I didn't see it 2 weeks ago—that's why I come here.
You're welcome, fren! In case it disappears it's here https://archive.is/Edzpa
Liberal heads will explode. Do it!
Don't think, do it. They do this all day long, you would think it would be natural by now.
There's nothing to weigh. They were 100% grade-A bullshit. Just do it. Shit or get off the pot.
RINOs trying to buy you with meaningless platitudes
Probably so they can impeach him again.
Needs to be politically-calculated (for maximum effect vs communists), and scheduled far-enough ahead of the Republican primary decisions to avoid entanglement with that. No question it should be done, to expose and amplify the blatant left/communist lies (Schiff, peloser, etc) and law-breaking (Russia-gate).
Look guys, that aint gonna happen. I can guarantee it. Not because it isn’t the just thing to do, but because we are led by fools and grifters.
Do it and then impeach Biden. Plenty of crimes there already out in the open
I’m afraid that’s the end game. Trump’s impeachment was politically motivated. We can’t impeach Xiden, we’re better than them.
They need to enter in all of the evidence that shows it was a setup and then expunge them. Grab FBI agents and have them testify again with the evidence. Start with SETH RICH info and go from that point for the Russia hoax that it was not hacked but leaked via a USB drive by Seth.
Useless exercise in futility. NOTHING done by this House has ANY effect for good. It's ALL pretend.
Why not just fucking do it ?
Just do it already.
Maybe unpopular opinion but who cares about those? I kinda see it as a badge of honor, and I'd much rather they worry about impeaching the president actually deserving of it.
What’s to weigh? Do it.
This is no brainer.
Weighs? WEIGHS?!!! WTF with the “weighs?”!!! Arrrgghhh… Enough of the fucking clown world… this sucks!!!
They should do it, but I doubt they will. There are more than 5 candy asses in the House Republican Caucus.
Who the fuck cares. Why are they not impeaching the potato in chief? Instead they are talking about this. It's all smoke and mirrors to ignore the obvious crimes of the Biden family.
Well that's the least the worthless Republicans could do for Trump.
Would need 0 RINOs to accomplish this. We have far more than 0 RINOs.
stop weighing. just do it already
They should. Both were total bullshit.
