Former Vice President Joe Biden is no longer gung ho about impeaching President Donald Trump, going against many in his party who are desperate to railroad Trump no matter what the political consequences may be for doing so.
“We have to preserve our Constitution, our democracy,” Biden said during an appearance at a fundraiser on Monday night. “I don’t take impeachment lightly. I’ve been there for two. I don’t think it’s anything a country should have to go through if it can be avoided.”
“Is there enough reason to be indicted, figuratively speaking?” Biden asked at the event before an enraged donor responded with “Hell yeah!”
Desperate House Democrats are starting impeachment proceedings over a largely promulgated scandal regarding a supposedly improper phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Biden had previously supported the notion of impeachment, but is cooling on his initial sentiments.
“Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation, and committed impeachable acts,” Biden said while campaigning in New Hampshire. “To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached.”
Biden, a lifetime creature of the Washington D.C. swamp, may be starting to understand how impeachment could backfire against the Democrats. He saw how a Republican-dominated House impeached former President Bill Clinton only to see him win re-election in overwhelming numbers.
Congressional Democrats released a formal resolution on Tuesday as they proceed with reckless abandon in the next phase of their witch hunt against President Trump.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that the resolution was produced “to eliminate any doubt as to whether the Trump Administration may withhold documents, prevent witness testimony, disregard duly authorized subpoenas, or continue obstructing the House of Representatives.”
The White House is undaunted by Democrats’ efforts.
“The resolution put forward by Speaker Pelosi confirms that House Democrats’ impeachment has been an illegitimate sham from the start as it lacked any proper authorization by a House vote,” the White House said in a statement. “It continues this scam by allowing Chairman Schiff, who repeatedly lies to the American people, to hold a new round of hearings, still without any due process for the President.”
The statement continued: “The White House is barred from participating at all, until after Chairman Schiff conducts two rounds of one-sided hearings to generate a biased report for the Judiciary Committee. Even then, the White House’s rights remain undefined, unclear, and uncertain – because those rules still haven’t been written. This resolution does nothing to change the fundamental fact that House Democrats refuse to provide basic due process rights to the Administration.”
Biden will have a hard time reigning in the excesses of his radicalized party, as he sinks in the polls despite remaining the front-runner by a narrowing margin.
Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation
They say they’ll vote ‘No.’
Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.
Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.
News: @SenatorCollins told me earlier this month in Maine that she would not seat a Supreme Court justice in October.
“I think that’s too close, I really do,” she said.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.
It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.
This U.S. Senate should vote on President Trump's next nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
