President Trump’s impeachment is a matter of party politics
The Democratic-led US House voting on Dec. 18 to impeach President Donald Trump finds him guilty of “abuse of power.” For the Republicans, he has done nothing wrong and they command enough Senate votes to acquit him.
Although impeachment by the House is an unpleasant blow for President Trump, he can console himself with the 6pc rise of his approval rating since the Democrats launched their impeachment inquiry against him for alleged abuse of power in his dealings with Ukraine and obstruction of the Congress probe by withholding witnesses. The vote later Wednesday night, Dec. 18, was to be preceded by six hours of debate, three hours each for Democrats and Republicans.
The Democrats have the majority they need in the House to impeach President Trump. A Senate trial would begin in January. But with the Republicans in control, he can expect to be acquitted by a two-thirds vote. Only two US presidents have ever been impeached – Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton – and neither was removed by the Senate.
Ahead of the vote, the president sent a six-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the moving spirit behind the impeachment initiative, calling the House inquiry a partisan “crusade,” an “unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power” and a “spiteful” “election-nullification scheme.”
At the same time, Trump’s prospects for re-election in 2020 are looking up. According to the latest Gallup poll released on Wednesday, his job approval rating stands at 45pc, boosted by 6pc since the impeachment proceedings were launched by the rival Democrats in autumn. Gallup also found that 89pc of Republicans approve of Trumps performance on the job and only 8pc of Democrats disagree.
While fuming over the impeachment move, Trump goes into the
2020 campaign bucked by strong economic news: 250,000 jobs were added in November
and 57pc of Americans said they were better off financially since he took
office. He has also reached a “Phase 1” trade deal with China and expects a
$200bn boost in exports from the deal over two years.

After the way Obama treated Israel, I get that you like Trump. But honest to God, Trump is a risk to the world and only in it for the money.
In it for money???
He doesn’t need money.
Agreed. He doesn’t even collect a paycheck. 100% of his pay (after taxes, which he pays) since he took office has been donated to various government agencies.
OH BOY. WHAT INCREDIBLE STUPIDITY MUST BE CLOUDING YOUR MIND TO BELIEVE IN THAT!! eVERYTHING DON THE CON DOES IS ABOUT HIM AND HIS MONEY.
What “money”, are you drunk? Come to your senses!
The real issue is not the “impeachment” and is not the reelection, it is this old 22nd amendment.
The 22nd amendment states that no person who has been elected to two presidential terms may be elected to a third. And so there will be serious debate about a 28th amendment to repeal the 22nd.
But hopefully, until that time, and because of the failed “impeachment”, the structure of the US House of Representatives will change to be over 2/3 Republican. 🙂
The problem of this WH CORRUPT IDIOT is that he IS GREEDY & ALWAYS wants MORE money !
Your personal opinion.
Pick the best new name out of the proposed on this list:
1. Democratic Impeachial Party
2. Democratic Impeachiant Party
3. Democratic Impeachiary Party
4. Democratic Impeachful Party
5. Democratic Impeachious Party
6. Democratic Impeachive Party
Sure he does. After going bankrupt 6 times, the banks won’t lend him money so his businesses are financed by the Russian mafia and the Saudis. Now they own his AZZ.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize the president does not need the money, only an attacking libotard would come up with such a ridicules statement. He donates his presidential salary, he paid for his own campaign, so he’s not owned by any corporate bottom feeders.
But it takes a total M O R O N to support him. SC UM BAGS support SC UM BAGS. He’s milking the US government for his own benefit in every possible way imaginable.
He didn’t pay for his own campaign
According to the Congressional campaign office – Trump spent $66 million of his own money on the campaign, the rest totaling $375 million was raised by donors and matched by taxpayers under the federal campaign finance system. So in all, he paid 18% of the total money raised.
If he doesn’t need the money, why didn’t he do what every other president has done: divest from his businesses? Instead, not only does he hold on to his businesses, he acts to increase his businesses income. President Donald Trump’s golf hobby has now cost Americans an estimated $115 million in travel and security expenses ― the equivalent of 287 years of the presidential salary he frequently boasts about not taking.
its not him a risk to the world ,. its a world is at risk by its stupidity . Stupidity and illiterate morons rule the world .
It’s NEOLIBERALISM that is ruling the world to its destruction.
that is your opinion. certainly not hundreds of million of Americans
he is no risk he must teach the nato members to stand like men and woman and defy dictators IRAN IS THE HEAD OF THE SNAKE TRUMP is the only president in the last 40 yrs that can and will do the job . he will be re elected
Debka obviously behaves like regular propaganda outlet serving trump .
Spoken like a true leftist. I disagree 100%
Trump needs money. That’s why Israel and Saudi Arabia could buy him off. You got your capital in Jerusalem. What, did you think there was no Quid Pro Quo? We didn’t.
He already has a lot of money. Maybe it’s for the power. If I had the money he had, I wouldn’t bother wasting my life’s precious time left on politics and ingrates but would spend more on family, friends and leisure.
President Trump has been steadfast in his Practical Policies that Challenge, Adapt & Approve making all Global Nations now considering their own Interests, Security, & Economies. As the Sole Super Power on the Planet it is more an adjustment to Globalism having to Adjust and Innovations are moving so Fast at Geometric Rates, they have no choice but to react in ways of keeping Harmony in the Community of Nations.
Pete, get your head out of the sandbox.. you hate him because he doesn’t fit your agenda.
It is obvious israel is still under the shock of what Obama and democrats done to their country as pete mentioned.
SORRY TU BUST THE PARTY JEWS BUT TRUMP COMMITTED MANY CRIMES. FINALLY GOT CAUGHT ONE BIGHT ENOUGH TO GO THROUGH IMPEACHMENT PROCEDURES. SENATE WILL SAVE HIM. THERE MIGHT BE MORE BIG ENOUGH CRIMES FOR DEMOCRATS TO PURSUE ANOTHER IMPEACHMENT IN TRUMP’S SECOND TERM. SIMPLE AS THAT. IF THERE WAS NO CRIME THERE WOULD NOT BE NO IMPEACHMENT. IT IS VERY SIMPLE.
@anonymous. No logic in what you write because you do not take account of the real facts. You haven’t thought of a third alternative because you haven’t bothered to study the entire picture, probably because you are only following the mainstream media and do not realise that the entire anti-Trump campaign since January 2016 has been an attempted coup by the deep state and the corrupt Demonrats. You can get the real story from many other channels but you can also read DJT’s own letter to Pelosi here and get exactly the same story. Time to widen your worldview and see the larger historic picture.
No buddy. It is not that complicated. Dems can’t win the elections and Trump is an easy target because his many scandals and borderline criminal actions. Why would the Democrats not pursue impeachment if it is clearly available to them while at the same time they have no other more effective way to challenge Trump? That is the best they can do at the moment.
Democrats are in trouble. None of their candidates is electable given the gibberish they spew. Democrats know it. Hence the drive to “impeach” Trump. When this charade is over and the smoke clears out, the reckless midgets who call themselves “democrats” will discover that they ended up losing more than they thought possible.
“IF THERE WAS NO CRIME THERE WOULD NOT BE NO IMPEACHMENT” is a very foolish statement as it it does not hold water. The impeachers come up with a new “crime” for Trump as they go. Their exertions are pathetic, disgusting and harmful to the country. I am wondering if the ring leaders of this hoax can be prosecuted for the REAL crime that they have unleashed on the people of their country.
So, “Anonymous Idiot”, accusation automatically equates to guilt??? I accuse you of being a racist anti-Semite. Off with your head!
Go back to your ignorant hole.
We are talking about Trump. His actions and behavior has been clearly outlined. He is guilty of many crimes. He is also a smart and wealthy man with a wicked mind and now the POTUS; so it makes it kind of easy to get away with his crimes. Facts here make you the ignorant one.
Good God, you are either criminally naive or suffering from one of the worst cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome on the planet. Either way, as a psychologist I implore you to seek professional help.
Go Trump Go Bibi !!!
DON THE CON WILL SLITHER THRU THIS AS HE DOES EVERYTHING ELSE…GO FIGURE…
The Don is a very talented Con. I think I figured it out!
that is full of dung
As long he is slithering in my behind, who cares about the rest of it?
Donald J. tRump IS a CORRUPT IDIOT who MUST be removed !
1-His “deal” with Ukraine was ONLY for HIS political gain, was he interested in investigating the Bidens BEFORE Biden declared his candidacy for President ?,…NO ! He became “INTERESTED” ONLY when Biden started gaining traction & polls showed him as the leading candidate & that he’ll probably beat him.
2-Obstruction of Congress IS a serious matter & if NOT dealt with today THAT opens the door for EVERY President / high official / legislator in the future to OBSTRUCT a LEGIT requirement from Congress.
3-NO one is above the LAW, tRump is NOT a KIng & time for him to pay up for what he did !
As soon as I started seeing headlines in Israel asking if Trump could be trusted, I started to wonder if we are headed toward some kind of radical shift in the Middle East (such as the end of Israel), that would be accompanied by a radical shift in US foreign policy (such as the closure of all our military bases) and a radical change in the US domestic political scene (such as the end of the Democratic Party and the full exposure of the Zionist occupation forces that planned and executed both 9/11 and the many pedophilia entrapment operations across the USA, of which Jeffrey Epstein is merely the best known.
Its a good article if you ignore some of the statements. The Kissinger view on Israel is considering and i always wonder what the Globalists are upto that has them positioning this all now.
Anti-Neoliberalism is the new worldwide trend.
Corporate, pornographic sh*thole America ends…Israel doesn’t.
TOMMY DONT FORGET ABOUT THE ZIONIST CONSPIRACY TO MAKE ALL WHORRES LIKE YOUR MOTHER SERVICE EVERY JEW FOR FREE 24*7!
I presume that was intended for the fake, pedophile troll Tommy…so I won’t take it personal.
IT WAS MEANT FOR YOU!
Tee-hee! Fox News just polled that over 50% wants him impeached. The Republicans have done nothing but retold lies and untruths to protect their king. And to avoid the public hearing the truth, they plan to refuse the public due-process! But rock on! Satan is coming to town!
DON THE CON IMPEACHED!
IT IS OFFICIAL!!! DON IS GONe!!!
Tommy, usuck big time
You bet I suck…but only those under 15 years of age.
@FakeGST… Maybe & Maybe Not? Congress may have to Impeach President Trump again in 2020 & if Re-Elected again in 2021!
So why is Kissinger saying that we are going to disappear in the next few years? Is he not meant to be on our side?
Link Citation Please So We Can Comment?
He is referring to Kissinger’s prediction in 2012 that Israel will disappear by 2022. That and Kissinger’s view that America will no longer be able to act unilaterally by 2026 has caused people to revisit the 2012 prediction and link the two events.
Kissinger is CFR and Bilderberg so when he makes predictions its because that is whats been decided and what they intend to happen. If it works out exactly as they want is another thing but it means that big changes are inevitable.
I don’t get it. Are you being sarcastic?
All Comments Above & Below are Examples of Free Speech, Rule of Law with No Fear of Reprisals, Prison, or Arrests. The Difference in Israel, America, & United Kingdom Compared to China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, & Vietnam. Goes for Bibi, The Donald & Bojo! No Fear For Opinions!
@GST001 – that’s just putting lipstick on pigs – some of those countries you mention just make sure that their favorite dictators are in place in the other countries you mention so that they can gain access to their resources. It is called “puppets”, “proxies” – they all have them. So don’t label
some as saints and others as devils – even God said ” I have created the evil inclination”.
@Dvaid… You are neither wrong nor correct but Israel, UK, & USA do put Shared Limits on Power their Leaders that must Deal with Other Leaders to Succeed and are Subject to Voters for Renewed Positions of Leaderships. This is not True in China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, & Vietnam!
The Future of Mideast! https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/surveillance-facial-recognition-privacy-communism/2019/12/18/id/946532/
The Political Opponents of President Trump have decided to Hold The President Accountable just like the Israel AG doing the same with Bibi, while Bojo Badly Beat his Political Opponents and that makes Nations Great when the People can Elect Whom they want & Challenge Leaders! Power To People Not Shiia Supreme Leaders, China Lifetime Jinping, Nor Putin on the Ritz! Partners for Progress & Putting People First!
Trump would love to become a dictator with multiple terms but he is unable to do so. He is limited to eight years of sh*t show demented power trip … thank goodness! Bibi using a different political setup has been running his sh*t show for years. heck he is even running it after loosing the elections! So, buddy boy. Son;t be so gullible.
the internal US fighting weakening the the F.ckung moron president and he will have no time or power for middle east , iran, syria ,iraq.,,,,,
Well it is a matter of abuse of power and obstruction of justice actually. Clinton got half of that but Trump had to go and do the abuse of power bit as well. That’s now gone down in history unfortunately.
@David… One Thing More! Both Clinton & Trump were Challenged by the Political Parties whereby Protesters Abound in the Streets, Media, & Places of Powers with No Fears. Protesters in China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, Vietnam can End Up in Prison, Camps & Dead from Lipsticks on Pigs? Quite Different is it Not?
The entire situation is and fabrication, the Deep State fabrication of the Russian election hacking and Trump involvement failed. So now we have them trying another approach saying that the Trump defending himself from this same Deep State conspiratory of which the Democratic Party was a part are grounds for impeachment. We even have the ex-NSA technical Chief saying that this “evidence “was all manufactured.
Right poor Don the con picked on again Life is so unfair. Wake up you fool. PS there Is no “Deep State”. Just Patriotic Americans who know a money grabbing traitor Putin puppet.
Yes its funny how these “Patriots” are all Jewish and have been caught manipulating and manufacturing evidence. Rosenstein – FBI director, Schumer – House Intelligence Committee Leader, Pelosi – Speaker of the House, one could go on and on… Then their is the Jewish controlled media that has been pushing this fake narrative from the beginning. So tell me how it us Patriot to undermine democracy with fake “evidence” and known to the false charges.
SAMANTHA IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BOTHER YOU THAT WE ARE JEWISH WHEN WE STUFF OUR GREEN DOLLARS UP YOUR SMELLY SNATCH AFTER WE ARE DONE WITH YOU.
@ Son is a con. Demonrat globalist Shill. Learn some history
Trump is evil mafia like don who directed many scams and illegal capers leading many advisors and staff to jail. He was impeached for same. Don’t be a lemming and praise the thief. The ONLY reason he Pretends to like Israel is to collect those Jewish donations from stupid old Yids who he has conned. Wake up. His is really a white Supremists like his father ( who trump stole lots of money from to fund his bankruptcies with) Fred who was a KKK leader.
Even Presidents, Senators, Congress, Billionaires, Attorney Generals, Military & Cons have Limits of Power!
Donald Trump, is the best President the Jewish people ever had. Nobody, has done more for Israel, than this man.
That is a very true statement, no American president has ever done as much. But as Samantha ? just pointed out this impeachment and fake Russian collusion nonsense has been orchestrated by the Democrats from the beginning. Yet these same people are Jewish so whats reallly going on here as this to me makes little sense?
EVERYTHING YOU THINK AND SAY DOESNT MAKE SENSE. TIME TO FIND NEW JEW-HATING JOURNALS TO READ, MORON.
It doesn’t to us normal Jews either !!
Help democrats to pick their best new name out of the proposed on this list:
1. Democratic Impeachial Party
2. Democratic Impeachiant Party
3. Democratic Impeachiary Party
4. Democratic Impeachful Party
5. Democratic Impeachious Party
6. Democratic Impeachive Party
This impeachment means nothing. It was all partisan politics as shown by Pelosi trying to withhold it from the Senate. It was all a sham, no crimes were charged, because there were none. Trump has committed no crimes and is an excellent President and that scares the Democrats as they will lose big now in 2020 due to their hate…..
Surely the Democrats must know that this is going to harm their 2020 election chances and that they have zero change of impeachment in the Senate. Worse this damage could continue to hamper the party for many years, once trust is lost its a very difficult thing to regain.
So why are the Democrats choosing to push such a lose / lose position? Its a very strange situation to be seen playing out.
As long as Trump is supporting or even paying lip service to to the righteous Zionist agenda, he will be deserving of my vote.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
and all Adelson’s horses
and all Saban’s men and Hillary couldn’t put Kahanist Israel together again
we want Netanyahu to have Trump land on top of him, so in another words Netanyahu is the first one who walks the plank
Totally agree, it’s very important that Netanyahu goes first and it seemed to go first, and Trump kind of lands on top of him and squishes him so Netanyahu can’t squirm away from there fully codependent trainwreck
The desperate Netanyahu didn’t get his war on Iran and now they are in a complete train wreck, and the American eel cons are getting unavoidably completely engulfed by it and overtaken by events, including their cover-up and disinformation campaign waged bye making invisible as possible the collapse of Israeli apartheid, Netanyahu, and American /Israeli Kahanism including themselves
As most Americans read the news of President Trump’s impeachment; they had to laugh and drink there last sip of coffee and went to work. The reality of the entire thing is who cares anymore what the Democrats do they have become irrelevant in so many way that as a political party they just committed suicide on TV. The entire thing was like some kind of Hollywood production written by Bob Riener AKA meathead!
Abbas Ali spends most of his time camped out in Tahrir Square – Epicenter of Iraq’s Anti-Government Protests
mike pompeo … LOL
Its about time that criminal charges are laid against Pelosi, Nader, Schiff, Rosenstein and the rest of these criminals for Treason.
The penalty is death and as commander in chief he should publicly put a gun to each of their heads and pull the trigger. Its time we dealt with this once and for all. First the leaders and then we work our way down to everyone who was involved.
No a bullet is to good for them. If they are convicted they should be burnt alive and publicly.
Those involved who come forward will be given jail time, those who do not come forward and are identified and convicted get the same. Harsh i know but traitors deserve no mercy. Equally if it 10 or ten thousand that need to be eliminated the number is not of importance what is that we drain the Swamp.
DON THE CON IS THE SWAMP. YOU ARE HIS PET ALLIGATOR!
ANGRY LOSER. I BET YOU WISH YOU COULD PUT YOUR LIPS RIGHT AGAINST DON THE CON’S DOODIE-STREAKED BEHIND.
DON THE CON! DON THE CON!! DON THE CON!!!
USA! USA!! USA!!!
MIGA! MIGA!! MIGA!!!
MAKE ISRAEL GREAT AGAIN!!
TRUMP = MIGA!!!!
The latest: The US Senate may not even receive these articles of impeachment in the near term, because of the inherent bias of the Republicans to impede the testimony of witnesses and prevent essential documentation disclosure. That has nothing to do with a “left wing bias.” So, all of you Trumpies in Israel and elsewhere-including Debka (why not admit it, Debka?)..you might have to hold your breath for a long time before your boy gets exonerated. Fat chance, huh? Sounds like I’m referring to Trump. How about that?
American Christians Rose Up Against Trump!!
Leading Christian magazine called for Trump to be removed from office! Reasoning; Trump’s immoral behavior!
“To the many evangelicals who continue to support Mr. Trump in spite of his blackened moral record, we might say this: Remember who you are and whom you serve,” Galli wrote. “Consider how your justification of Mr. Trump influences your witness to your Lord and Savior. Consider what an unbelieving world will say if you continue to brush off Mr. Trump’s immoral words and behavior in the cause of political expediency.”
Shame on you Jews to support Trump. Obviously and without surprise morality is something ‘negotiable for Jews. In case of Trump he brings in a lof of other benefits … his morality can be overlooked. Shame!
In closing; this is a big deal! If Christians take this appeal to heart next years election could be a shocker!
The result of this impeachment means that every party losing a Presidential election and having a majority in the House, can impeach the President.
At least with Republican/Conservative/Tory party one knows what they are all about even if one agrees or disagrees with them. With Democrat/Liberal/Labor party one doesn’t know anymore what they are all about since they are hypocritically wishy-washy even if one agrees or disagrees with them. However, both sides are under the influence of NEOLIBERALISM which has dominated things for over 40 years.
