I posted earlier about the Democrats censuring the President instead of impeaching him. I feel that this is the best scenario over impeachment (Besides just shutting down the impeachment hearings which we all know the Dems will not do). Let’s face it, the impeachment process is not going well for the Dems. To save face, the Dems could censure Trump as a bad orange man. They could say they are saving the country from going through this terrible impeachment process that would tear the country apart or they could censure the bad orange man. So they choose censure instead. They are trying to look as much like heroes as they can even tho the rest of us realize they are nothing but clowns and they not only act like clowns but they are looking quite stupid for even starting this process.
An opinion piece that looks at censure because impeachment is looking grave.
Bradley Blakeman: Dems' impeachment option — THIS is their only exit strategy
If I understand it, censuring the President has no consequences. If he were a member of Congress, and if the censure resolution passes in either chamber, he would be removed from all committees and other seats of responsibility.
Also, if the House votes to censure Trump, the Senate can vote to expunge the resolution -- basically an admission that the censuring was not supported by the President's actions.
"Censure is a formal, and public, group condemnation of an individual, often a group member, whose actions run counter to the group's acceptable standards for individual behavior."
The "group" (the Democrats & the House majority) have two sets of standards. If Trump violated their standards, what about all the House members recently who made anti-Semitic comments/Tweets? What about AOC blocking social media accounts she doesn't like after (1) the courts said no gov't official can block people, and (2) she apologized and said she was wrong in the lawsuit she just settled the DAY BEFORE she was to give testimony? She still has people blocked.
The Dems have standards for themselves and standards for their enemies. Letting them get away with judging anyone, even Trump, is hypocrisy to the extreme.
Censuring Trump would be an admission they can't find any crimes with which to impeach him. It tells voters they started the impeachment process without evidence of criminal conduct while hoping the inquiry gives them the evidence they have been telling us they already have.
I don't know why anyone would trust any of these Democrat traitors. They wave the Constitution around saying impeachment is their duty. Funny how all the other parts of the Constitution, like passing an annual budget, slip their minds.
