    Then what happens?

    Imagine this scenario...

    The Democrats voted to impeach.

    The Senate throws it out.

    Trump uses the huge victim card he's been handed by the Democrats and wins again in 2020.

    Congress and the Senate remain Democrat and Republican majorities respectively.

    What happens then?

    Impeach Trump a second time?

    Something more drastic?

    If the House stays Dem, yes, they'll keep trying to impeach. Which his why Trump will be re-elected and the House will flip.

    Re: Then what happens?

    Nancy Pelosi is crapping her pants right about now.

    A vote to impeach and moved forward to the Senate will result in a flip.

    Republicans will control both the House and Senate.

    It’s going to cost her the majority next year, and she knows it.

    She has no way out of this they have set their own trap.

    Impeachment failing in the House and never going forward also a killer.

    Censure would only cause supporters of impeachment more angst that would also be a death blow.

    The only real question left is how many seats will they lose?

    Going to be a riot starting wednesday of next week no matter the result.

    on the ready!

    I have given up hope of an American having the courage to do something more drastic.

    The cowards are too busy shooting up shopping malls and schools.

    Yes I will, it will look much the same as it did prior to Trump. You wishing it to be so, won’t actually make it happen.

    At this time, impeachments are almost as useless as interdictions were in the medieval era. I mean the first impeachment, Clinton and maybe Trump, stir fear in the hearts of those being impeached, but after that it becomes so what which means it loses its power long term.

    Much like it did the day and years after Trump took office. When we were assured he'd start WWIII and tank the market.

    To the extent that one party (Republicans) says it won't even listen to the evidence, this prior to hearings even started.

    And I don't think it's useless if it causes Trump debilitating anguish. It will forever be in the history books, and Trump will be remembered as only the third President to ever be impeached. He will forever bear the 'Scarlet I ' in history. You just know that's making him crazy. He's been on a twitter rampage for the past week. :)

    This vote probably wednesday or certainly by the end of the week is being anxiously awaited by both sides.
    The vote could be delayed if the votes aren't there to impeach and if that happens all hell will break loose.
    Believe me that fear you mention does not exist on the Republican side and for the most part unfortunately for the democrats on their side as well (excluding of course the representatives in jeopardy).

    Let's see what happens.

    Why should Repubs listen when Dems won't listen to the evidence, namely Zelensky's and Yernak's words, no investigation started and the money released?

    Nothing else needs to be done. We'll have an election in 2020. If Donald Trump wins it means we'd rather have quasi-dictators instead of a republic.
