Should the House debate the Articles of Impeachment ?

Some folks believe it is too divisive to debate on the floor. It would just divide the country even further.

But, I think it could be done.

If Speaker Pelosi were to allot two Fridays to debate the issue. That would be December 13th and December 20th. Nearing the Christmas season, it would give them time to reflect with their families, and make the decision that they truly believe to be in the best interests of their nation.

Only those two Fridays would be permitted for debate on the matter.

It might work under those circumstances?

It would give the Senate time to work on the rules that they want for the Senate trial. They will be cursing Nancy Pelosi all the way. But they cannot question her courage and patience.

There will be a full vote in the full House on the Articles of Impeachment. It is a very serious matter. Each Congressman should be giving heart and conscience to the process.

Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell, and Chief Justice Roberts should be meeting to discuss the rules of the Senate, also, in the event of a Senate trial.

Should they debate before they vote?

1. Yes, there should be a floor debate.

I know it will give the Republicans more time to rant about the process, how unfair this is and what ever else they dream up. Every Democrat needs to be prepared to counter their rants with facts. Just a simple example of how the proceeding Repug is wrong, then go on with their statement.

Democrats don't have to yell or call names, just proceed with a quick response and go forward. Don't let any Repug lie go without a fact to give the American public something to think about. Don't sit mute while all your work is degraded and vilified.
