    I was hoping that the United States would get a breathing space from the polarisation of the Trump era and maybe a chance to recover. Obviously if this goes through, that is not going to happen whatsoever.

    So, a boarder that Trump himself failed to seal off when covid hit, an immigration policy that hasn't deviated too far from Trump's in many ways, and a withdrawal from Afghanistan that Trump started, and now it's an impeachable offense?
    Can Reps possibly make their hyperpartisanship any more obvious?

    It's been really sad watching Americans rip each other apart, often very needlessly and without any evidence to justify this kind of behaviour. What America is doing is basically screwing up the rest of the century for everyone else in the world because the consequences of this dysfunction are both global and long-term. It's not enjoyable to have to watch this knowing that.

    Biden and Harris are worthless.

    Well you have easy targets then - don't impeach them - competently propose better solutions, constructively criticise their decisions

    Pathetic, coming from Republicans who spent the last 4 years licking Trump's boots, no matter what he did.
    Gimme a break.

    That has not happened since the Clinton era. I think that there were quite a few racist Republicans that came to power during the Obama administration. Sadly it seems that Hillary was underestimating the party when she said that there was only a "basket full of deplorables". I think many of them were hiding their prejudice until Trump came along. Now all of the craziness is out there 24/7.

    No doubt, Biden is not perfect. He's mishandled the withdrawal of Afghanistan leaving hundreds of Americans stranded behind in Afghanistan. He authorized a drone strike in Kabul reportedly killing a humanitarian aid worker and 7 children. He has left the border open to C.O.V.I.D. infected migrants. Biden has so far failed to gather support for an agreement on an infrastructure spending bill to be passed through Congress. Despite these failures, I would not consider Biden as having committed an impeachable offense.

    It's utterly hilarious, but in a VERY pathetic way, that they want to impeach Biden [for what?], and yet their own man was impeached twice with some Pubs joining the Dems.

    IOW, it's "Kabuki Theatre".

    Well at least till the Midterms come and go.

    Time will tell for sure. I think the rest of Bidens term will be endless investigations.

    Oddly familiar I think.

    I'm sure after the midterm we will be hearing about it quite a bit.

    This country’s government is a broken kakistocracy.

    You might not like it, but it's not broken.
    Government is chugging along.
    Impeachment is just more popular than in prior years.
    In fact, we just ended a 2 decade long useless war.
    So I think government is looking up...for the moment.
    Function waxes & wanes.
    I recommend paying less attention to the drama of
    politics, & more to actual policy. It can still be vexing
    at times, but the tantrums of politicians are insignificant.

    Of course Biden and his faithful sidekick Harris are doing a wonderful job at the border.

    Letting just about anybody in that is.

    Wonderful strategy.

    Nice.

    Not sure if it is possible at this point but the two parties need to look for common ground and not burial ground!
