Varney: Why won’t house Dems schedule a vote on impeachment?

October 11, 2019


WE’RE UP 34 POINTS HOLDING UP TO A VERY MODEST GAIN. ALL RIGHT, EVERYONE, NOW THIS, THE IMPEACHMENT EFFORT HAS BEEN LAUNCHED AND LAUNCHED IN VERY STRONG TERMS. SPEAKER PELOSI SAYS THE PRESIDENT HAS BETRAYED HIS OATH OF OFFICE, BETRAYED NATIONAL SECURITY AND BETRAYED THE INTEGRITY OF ELECTIONS. HE HAS, SHE SAYS, SERIOUSLY VIOLATED THE CONSTITUTION. IF THE SPEAKER THINKS PRESIDENT TRUMP IS SO BAD WHY NO VOTE AMONG HOUSE DEMOCRATS? WHEN WILL THE SPEAKER SCHEDULE A VOTE? ANSWER? DO NOT HOLD YOUR BREATH. THE LAST THING MANY DEMOCRATS WANT IS TO GO ON RECORD. OF COURSE IN THE FAR LEFT PRECINCTS OF NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA THEY’RE VERY EAGER TO BANG THE IMPEACHMENT DRUM IN PUBLIC BUT THE MODERATES, NOT SO MUCH. FOR THEM ACCOUNTABILITY MAY MEAN LIABILITY. VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT NOW, AND THEY COULD LOSE IN 2020. THE SPEAKER ALSO HAS THE SENATE IN MIND. THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRES A 2/3 MAJORITY TO CONVICT AND REMOVE THE SENATE FROM OFFICE. WITH 53 REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE, IMPEACHMENT IS EXTREMELY UNLIKELY. KNOWING THAT, DEMOCRATS DON’T WANT TO GO ON RECORD SUPPORTING SOMETHING THEY KNOW WILL LOSE. THAT IS ANOTHER REASON WHY THERE IS NOT LIKELY TO BE A HOUSE VOTE ANYTIME SOON. NOW LOOK BACK AT THE IMPEACHMENT CHALLENGES TO PRESIDENTS NIXON AND CLINTON. IN BOTH CASES IT WAS A BIPARTISAN EFFORT. SOME REPUBLICANS VOTED AGAINST REPUBLICAN RICHARD NIXON. SOME DEMOCRATS VOTED AGAINST DEMOCRAT BILL CLINTON. IT IS NOT LIKE THAT NOW. THE IMPEACHMENT OF DONALD TRUMP IS ALMOST ENTIRELY PARTISAN AND THAT DOES NOT LOOK GOOD. IF YOU REALLY THINK HE BETRAYED AMERICA YOU SURELY HAVE TO HAVE BOTH SIDES OF THE AMERICAN AISLE ON BOARD TO GET HIM OUT. WELL AMERICA HAS SEEN THE TRANSCRIPT OF THE UKRAINE CALL. WE’VE SEEN THE WHISTLEBLOWER ALLEGATIONS AND THE TESTIMONY OF JOE MAGUIRE. THE EVIDENCE IS OUT THERE. SO LET’S SEE A VOTE IN THE HOUSE. BUT AGAIN, DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH. ONE LAST POINT IF I MAY, IF THE SPEAKER WON’T SCHEDULE AN IMPEACHMENT VOTE, SURELY THE SPEAKER COULD DO US ALL A GREAT FAVOR AND LET THE HOUSE VOTE ON USMCA OR PRESCRIPTION DRUG PRICES OR INFRASTRUCTURE. ISN’T THAT WHAT CONGRESS IS SUPPOSED TO BE DOING?

  1. Why won't the gutless republicans stop this b.s. or at least start calling them out on the House floor as liars and thiefs. Protest the dems, start disruptions, cut them off.

  2. Now any idiot can be a whistleblower and the courts will be kept busy with rumors. Now we must continue to support Pres Trump and continue to trust him only. Pres Trump has proven himself to be a gentleman of complete integrity and we must remember his stellar performance before the American people. Pres Trump has a stellar reputation for America's treatment of China the way China deserves it. Pres Trump is truly a miracle worker who is determined to get to the bottom to clean the swamp and to get rid of all the corrupt DEMS who are so distorted with rage. DEMS are raged at their futility and their disgraceful 2016 election loss. I believe God will not allow DEMS to ever take over the US presidential seat.

    God is moving nations through politics. God holds the nations responsible for the leaders they pick. God uncovers sins of world leaders to fulfill Bible prophecies.

    God's sovereign control of history cannot be undone by man's clever attempts to determine his own fate. The nations have been established by God for His purposes (Acts 17:26), and He is sovereign over all their affairs.

  3. When Liberals (Communists) point fingers at Trump, they are actually pointing fingers at themselves! This is the MO! Blame the opposition for your own crimes!

  4. Just a trial balloon. Impeachment will be successful only if his approval rating falls into the low 20's.
    That will never happen. That is why Pelosi will never call for a vote which is required to begin impeachment proceeding.
    Besides, the validity of the complaint is falling apart upon close scrutiny.
    I smell a conspiracy, again.

  5. Because they don't have the votes…….they'll dream up any and all false accusations, lie and connive, eat the wounded..(which you'll see when the Dems pitch Biden under the bus) and they just don't have it in their DNA to be up front, honest and forthwith, with anything, atleast anything that does not slither.

  6. Because it's a political weapon they are using. They know it's not going to go anywhere. They are trying to point the finger and deflect on Trump for their failures to the American people. They can't actually govern so they create scandal after scandal.

  7. Who cares, vote all dems out, dont want to be on public record impeaching? We know you're for it, even if you dont vote on it. Haven't met a Democrat politician that did not hate trump and secretly his supporters.

  8. Maybe because they are being responsible and getting all the facts together before bringing it to a vote. That’s how adults work!

  9. Al Bren stated he wants Trump impeached to stop his re-election. How is that not election tampering? Democrats want to tell is who can run a and who we can vote for….little by little they are destroying our rights. First they want our 2A, then the 1A and now our right to vote and trust me that’s is the female vote and the black vote

  10. Because it wont stand. If we are talking about traitors we got Brennan, Schiff, Pelosi, Schummer, AOC, Ilhan Omar who married her brother, Rashida Tlaib who is selling tee shirts that say impeach the MF, Ayanna Pressley The place is infested with democrat roaches.

  11. All this just prove one thing: The President alone have done more for this Country than all the House Representatives and Senators together. Fire them all. .

  12. At the end of the day we all know about the shadow of a doubt what is going on it is about a coup in America and allowing the UN and the global is to take power the democratic party is ruled by those people outside of America and not all the American people the People's president is supported by the majority of American people and he is the People's president and this is why they hating so much because he believes in the freedom of speech liberty and democracy we ain't going to get there and if he's willing to take the bull by the horns and fight these people because they are destroying America and the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of American citizens

  13. Dems do it, it’s called opposition research.
    Reps do it, it’s called a crime.

    FACT: The President of the United States can request a foreign government investigate crimes committed by American citizens in that foreign country. Regardless of whether the subject person is a political rival or not.

  14. Bring it on, democrats! You have placed yourselves at risk of 9-1/2 years of President Mike Pence. And that wouldn't be a bad outcome for the conservative movement. And the possible break-up of the democrat party when 1/3 of dems go conservative and the other 2/3's go to the green party.

  15. Two reasons. One they know they have no evidence. Also they are afraid the truth is going to come out about Joe Biden his son and John Kerry son and their dealings in Ukraine and with China.

  16. Rhetoric is easier to propagate than action!
    The democrats are the party of inaction. All talk! 😠
    What have they done for YOU in the past 3 years?!
    What they have done TO you is waste your tax dollars!!
    Make them PAY IT BACK!!

  17. Are you stupid or what. It takes time to get all the ducks in a row. So that the RP can't weasel out of it. And we know how forthright don the Con will be. He'll be dragging his heals the whole way out the door

  18. They're pushing this hard, because they are panicking what about to unveil the corruptions of the democratic party and they're allies so called media..if you notice what do wild animals do when you corner them, they will attack viciously, and that we know they are cornered.they always accuse the greatest president ever something they are doing, like Q said think mirror and remember what pelosi said you have to create false accusation and use the MSM until dumb people will think it's true…

  19. I maybe a little ignorant here, but I thought the Constitution required a vote if there was going to be an impeachment, otherwise it wasn't an official impeachment and there would be no chance to have a trial and remove him from office.

  20. Be cause they have nothing and if they go for it old Joe Biden and his son will get 50 years hope they go for impeachment boy will that backfire hahahahahaha

  21. Cant believe anyone watches this guy. Fox news is confounded by this situation. All their anchors are bickering with each other. They will vote, the process just started after all.

  22. Nancy is from a crime family and she thinks everyone is as crooked as she is. The house of representatives has not done anything productive since Nancy has been Speaker of the house. She is the one that they should put her feet to the fire. Also since the leaker has made up a bunch of lies he/she should be fired and arrested. We don't need people like either one of them should be in our government.

  23. America has a treaty with ukraine on criminal matters im not up on this but it is reAl nothing trump said was impeachable
    The democrats are finished since trump was elected theyve done nothing but go after him
    The democrats again will go into an election with no policies but hate
    And if all they have is paedo joe and pocahontas then its a done deal

  24. Last time Mitch called for a floor vote 158 Democrats went on record voting AGAINST impeachment. They won't let THAT happen, again…

  25. Check pelosi's phone records.. Want to bet Hillary's number would come up a lot.. She is in direct contact with the witch all day everyday..

  26. They are incompetent leaders wasting positions that can be filled by real patriots who can work for the prosperity of the country. We have child-minded leaders, especially the DNC reps & senators, who are holding federal office positions and they are disgraceful and shameful. Please resign!!! The country is better off without you guys. πŸ‘ŽπŸΎ

  27. Democrats won't schedule a vote for impeachment because they are cowards that hide behind empty threats due to the fact that all of them never had a chance of winning any election, fairly. They have hated this President because he has exposed them for who they really are…liars…leakers…obstructionists and in one word, corrupt. President Trump has set the bar so high that no Democrat will ever be able to serve the interests of the American people without undoing all the progress.

  28. Democrats have lost their mines. Vote 100% republican, and eliminate all democrats and put them out of office. Trump 2020. God bless america and the american people, and especially god bless President Trump.

  29. I'm sick of Congress, not only do we need to be sure our Congress and Senate have been weeded out of the deep state we need to be very careful about who we vote in.
    No honest politician?
    There has to be some out there

  32. A year ago they concocted the Kavanaugh hit job and milked the Mueller probe all the way through the mid-term elections. Expect them to try something like that again as well as build up and push another nonsense crusade to distract and dissuade anyone who's on the fence with their vote. This is the calm before the storm with a progressive push all the way thru the 2020 election.

  33. I PRAY that the Democrats//cowards tho they may be.. ACTUALLY VOTE to impeach..because THEN, when the trial happens in the Senate..there is something called discovery…can you actually imagine how many witness's will be called that have committed corrupt acts..Schiff himself was colluding with Russians vis a vis trying to get dirt on Trump by calling foreign leaders..ditto others…Biden would be called etc…right around this time the IG report and probably indictments of McCabe and Comey (for the Mueller investigation) will have happened. After an obvious Senate Acquittal in the Senate Trumps popularity jumps to about 70 percent….and 4 more years assured.Β  Do it..vote to impeach you cowards !!

  34. All the walking too and fro while being filmed on a phone ..is just to appear that the left are actually doing something !!

  35. The only traitors are The Democratic Party. We need a huge investigation and actually punishment or we are loosing all creditably with other World leaders. They are making a joke out of our Country

  36. When voting it's not about party but the best candidate, although, right now Republican is more relevant and to stick with the Red KAG! Keep America Great! Please do watch out for Rouge Republicans!

  37. They will have a vote for impeachment after the next election when they won't have to worry about being voted out of red states… Oh wait!.. After the election they won't be the majority anymore. Yes I see the Democrats' dilemma.
