Trump, at the urging of the Barr Department of Justice, has invoked executive privilege to prevent the House from getting the un-redacted Mueller report.

I say this is the last straw. It is time to impeach. Trump is provoking it intentionally. And the polls show the American people are against it. But it is the responsibility of congress to do it at this point.

Once revelations about Trump emerge and reach the public they will turn on him.

Once more Trump appointees are prosecuted and convicted, the public will come on board.

Trump and his appointees are a threat to safety of the American people.

Trump has become ever more brazen and to some extent I blame Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership for not taking a more aggressive response.

THERE APPEARS TO BE NO LIMIT TO HOW FAR TRUMP WILL GO TO DELAY OR STOP JUSTICE. HE MUST BE IMPEACHED NOW. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO REPLACES HIM OR HOW IT AFFECTS THE 2020 ELECTION.

Professional Political Action Figures exist to be re-elected. Truly Great American Billionaire Geniuses can deliver campaign promises (verbal contracts) to "lock up crooked Hillary" and "drain the swamp" within 1,460 days, or our taxes MUST BE cheerfully refunded, and we resume the same old sh*it, and declare HILLARY CLINTON the winner of 2016, without a stupid "Erectile College"

Pelosi didn't impeach the mass murdering, war criminal bush, so trump has nothing to worry about.


The spineless Republicrats will not impeach trump because they think it will ensure they will win in 2020. They're wrong.

Every sperm of DONALD JUDAS TRUMP is sacred, on that we all agree.

Each and every American girl deserves to be filled with #MAGA seed.

Greed is good, but TRUMP is greater. What is his favorite position, in bed?

Is anyone else having a problem with being sent to log in when trying to up vote a comment? Are we looking forward to President Pense? How about we get in the streets and demand the resignation of the whole lot of them? Our interests haven't been the priority of either ruling party for at least 4 decades. Maybe we should stop being distracted by partisan BS which is all this really is and call the whole system out for its criminality.

"...being sent to log in when trying to up vote a comment"

Are you using AdBlock? I'm asking because I've noticed a few "snags" as of late that go away when I turn off my ad blocker, and I want to see if ad blockers are now an issue with OEN again.

Not a problem with the IPad. I've sometimes had issues on this site using Firefox.

Lois, you wrote, "Our interests haven't been the priority of either ruling party for at least 4 decades."

That is true. When is the last time any significant legislation has been passed for the people?

Another thing, we can all point to many things that are getting worse. But, can anyone point to just one single thing(!) of any real significance that is getting any better? Can anybody see any hope that anything will change to change things to become any better? Maybe someone can, but not me.

I think that says by itself, a lot about the direction we are headed with almost certainly no return. But maybe all is not lost. It has been said, "hope springs eternal." We just have to hope that hope is worth hoping for, to make any difference.

What has happened since Robert Mueller submitted his report is a picture book case of obstruction of justice, in this case with the obvious collusion of the Attorney General. The case could hardly be more obvious, perhaps even sufficiently so for the Democrats in the House to be compelled into action.

The obvious reluctance of Democrats to act on impeachment leaves the impression that in their view the definitive impeachable act has yet to occur. Meanwhile we have had to endure one outrage against the Constitution after another. Why the narrow focus on obstruction of justice?

We have witnessed the wholesale abuse of power at every turn since the beginning of this fake Presidency. Abuse of power is the core issue here. Finally, it may be getting its due attention with the wholesale stone-walling of Congress by the Trump White House.
