Question Why did the vote to impeach Trump fail 364-58?

Surely the partisan balance in Congress isn't tilted THAT heavily in favor of Republicans?

Dems kept pushing the impeach narrative in the media and to their constituents to get them riled up and supporting their campaign causes.

But then when someone actually invoked a mechanism to vote on the movement, it failed 364-58

Why did that happen?

Why did the vast majority of Democrats refuse to follow through on what they told all their voters they believe in?


Now we have Trump for at least 3 more years

Because everybody realized that inpeaching Trump would only result in an even bigger imbecile taking office. In a way, I feel that taking Pence as VP was an ingenious and calculated move.

they didnt chicken out, it was never going to pan out. you cant just vote to impeach someone when there is not sufficient evidence of wrong doing, that just shows a lack of integrity to do so.

Fair enough.

I guess 58 Democratic congresspersons were willing to sacrifice their personal and political integrity just to throw another public Trump tantrum.


Disturbing. Very disturbing. But not surprising.

The congressman (who is black) that invoked the measure had proposed to impeach him literally, officially, for being a bigot

I kid you not.


Bigotry-hunts are the Dem version of McCarthyism. Or worse, the literal witch burnings in Salem in the 1690s.

Thats where this party is right now.

Disturbing. Very disturbing. But not surprising.

if this was reversed, where there were sufficient evidence, i bet the number of republicans to vote no for impeachment would be around the same number of 58.
