    You don't need a "vote to send articles of impeachment to the senate". As the Speaker of the House, Ms. Pelosi can schedule a vote on anything - like when the sun will rise tomorrow.

    Mr. Trump was impeached last month. Ms. Pelosi tried to finesse things beyond her powers of Speaker of the House. She made it seem that there was no impeachment without her signing off. There is no such provision in the Constitution.

    My guess is that there will be a vote and it will go down to defeat for the following reasons:
    1. it will be announced that the investigation is continuing and so as to not confuse the multi-millionaires/lawyers/educated people in the Senate, it will temporarily be defeated (but subject to a recall vote on motion)
    2. Vulnerable Democrats will vote against sending it on - for their own electoral reasons;

    Not a chance that it won't go to the Senate.

    They can't go off course without exposing just how stupid they are.

    Not really impeached until articles of impeachment reach Senate from what I understand.

    I bet the articles go to the senate in the next Seven days. It would be absolutely amazing if they don't.

    No offing way it does not go to the senate. Too many RiNOS in both chambers. The House Rinos will support so it will go to Senate. Senate Rinos will not vote to dismiss charges and it will go to trial. Thats my prediction anyway. After that it gets even crazier with the lack of backbone in most GOP members and the dislike for Trump among both houses.

    Well, it's far too late for them to avoid looking stupid.

    So they'll wait until the end when it gets voted down and then not only will they show how stupid they are but will set the high bar for stupidity.

    They might hold onto it, claiming they now need to investigate Trump for "war crimes" & the Russian Burisma hack.

    Actually, at this point, I think they might just be trying to figure out which course will make them look least stupid...
    investigating in the House or a trial in the Senate? And is it better to have Bernie, Warren & what's her name (?) out campaigning and looking like idiots, or sitting at the Senate trial, looking like idiots?

    It's complicated.

    As expected, she is sending them. No one wants this and the votes overwhelming disagree with it. Doesn't matter to them. They are making a joke out of politics and the grounds for impeachment are now "You won the election. That wasn't suppose to happen. So we're impeaching you".

    I thought she said impeachment was a serious and sad thing.

    Also, here is Nancy and company smiling as they take pics celebrating as they sign. The document is sitting on a table with a large twitter hashtag on it, that's how you know they're serious.

    I really hope this backfires, but my concern is that her supports will support whatever she does, whether or not there is evidence to support it.
