Dec 14 - Democrat Collin Peterson says he won’t vote for impeachment
 

 
LITCHFIELD — Barring new information that could convince him otherwise, Rep. Collin Peterson said Saturday he will vote against impeaching President Donald Trump when the issue comes for a vote Wednesday in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Peterson said he expects four or five other Democrats will do the same. Last week, Democrat Angie Craig, who last year won Minnesota’s suburban Second Congressional District that Trump carried in 2016, said she remains undecided on impeachment
.

Peterson, who represents Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District on the western side of the state, made the comments while attending the annual meeting of the First District a*sociation, a dairy cooperative in Litchfield.

Peterson said he normally doesn’t make a decision until an issue — and all the information — is on the floor for a vote but said “unless they come up with something between now and Wednesday,” he will not support the articles of impeachment.






“Maybe something will change. I doubt it,” he said.

Peterson said Trump “has not committed a crime” and most people in the Seventh District don’t think the U.S. should provide foreign aid, so they are not troubled at all if Trump withheld funds to Ukraine. Peterson also said the case against Trump only includes “second-hand” information about Trump’s questionable phone call with the president of Ukraine.

In that July 25 call, Trump is accused of abusing his presidential power by asking Ukraine to investigate his 2020 rival Joe Biden while holding military aid as leverage; that’s the first of two articles of impeachment that the House Judiciary Committee approved on Friday. The second article accuses Trump of obstructing Congress by blocking the House’s efforts to probe his actions.

‘Why are we doing this’
Peterson was one of two House Democrats to initially vote against moving forward with the impeachment inquiry. The other, New Jersey freshman Jeff Van Drew, reportedly decided Saturday to switch to the Republican Party.

Peterson said the “biggest problem” he has with this impeachment process is that people decided in advance they were going to impeach Trump “and now they’ve spent a year trying to figure out how they can make a case for it. That’s backwards. I just don’t agree with this.”


Peterson said he expects the House will vote to impeach Trump and then it will go to the Senate where he predicts the president will be acquitted.

This is dividing the country for no good reason because he’s not going to be thrown out of office,” he said. “Why are we doing this?”

Peterson said the issue should be settled at the ballot box.


“If people don’t like Trump, they can vote against him,” he said.

Dairy economics “improving”
On the topic of agriculture, Peterson told the dairy producers at the meeting that for the first time in many years the economics in the dairy industry is improving.

Despite many dairy farmers retiring and leaving the business, Peterson said now is a perfect time for young farmers to get into the business.


He said the new farm bill’s safety net, the positive markets, available credit, cheap dairy cattle and the availability of empty dairy barns that could be leased or purchased make it a good time for young people to start dairy farming.
“I’m optimistic and I hope we can encourage people to get into the business,” he said. “We’ve got a pretty decent safety net for smaller producers.”

Peterson is not so optimistic about the rest of agriculture.

“I’m worried about it,” he said. “I’m hearing from bankers and Farm Credit, they’re worried about financing people next year.”

The devastating sugar beet crop this year dealt a tough blow to the ag economy, he said. “It’s not good.”

Peterson said he’s dubious of the $50 billion in ag sales touted by the Trump administration as a result of a new trade agreement with China.

“I’d be surprised,” he said. “I hope it’s true. Maybe it’ll turn these prices around, but I’m skeptical.”

Peterson said the $28 billion in facilitation payments that went to farmers to ease the burden of the trade war did some good but would’ve been put to better use by improving the last farm bill. He also said those payments could end up causing a “backlash” against agriculture by the general public.

Another term?
Peterson has not announced whether he will seek another term.

If he decides to run in 2020 he said he would have to run again in the following election because the ag committee, which he is currently the chairman of, would be in the middle of writing the next farm bill.

“It’s a two-term commitment,” he said. “I feel like if I run this next time that means I have to run one more time. So I’m looking at two elections and by that time I’ll be 80 years old. So I’ve got to decide, do I want to do that,” he said.

Peterson predicted that if he doesn’t run, or is not re-elected, the person replacing him would likely not be on the house ag committee, which would reduce the voice of Minnesota farmers. Given that, he said, it was perplexing that in the last election most farmers voted for Trump and voted for Peterson’s opponent

This actually just proves Democrats will actually analyze and vote for what the believe like they're supposed to. The Republicans on the other hand prob wont have one person vote for it in the house or Senate. It will show they just vote in their interest as a party as opposed to the American people and how they're supposed to.

The guy broke the law but "at best" its murky and should have some for snd some against in both sides. If they're analyzing and voting how they should it shouldnt be a clean sweep on either side

No crimes?

Definitions we've redefined:
-quid pro quo
-bibery
-obstruction
-lying under oath

And a host of other things. IDGAF about any of this because I understand where we're at now. You can blatantly admit something on video or on paper, and just deny it or redefine it. I would rather you just say fu*k you, I did it, which ironically they did but to convince me I'm stupid and I didnt hear,read, or see what I saw is next level trolling. Racism and white supremacy didnt die. It evolved.

"Peterson said the “biggest problem” he has with this impeachment process is that people decided in advance they were going to impeach Trump “and now they’ve spent a year trying to figure out how they can make a case for it. That’s backwards. I just don’t agree with this.”

The Trump hate is strong, once it gets swatted down in the senate....ooo boy. Dems should get their refund from CNN.
The "Peachmint" pics we been seeing for the last 4 years going to have to be saved for when he wins 2020. Democrats have secured a Republican win at the expense of Joe Biden.

This is what they have to tell themselves cause the tv hasn’t told them otherwise

They are completely unaware that most people with common sense can see this as desperation political tactics that do nothing but obstruct United States progress

I honestly don't have a problem with maga people
...

It's just yall act like someone r*ped your mother when he breaks laws and someone holds him accountable...

His action got him here. His words got him here.

What's best for our country is to move on without a thug wanna be dictator in the White House who cant stop committing crimes

What you talkin about you broke midget? Anytime there is a 100% vote for one party its bullsh*t politics...that doesnt take a genius to figure out. There were clear laws broken and attorneys across the country agree and have went in front of Congress and said so. Now whether you want to believe it's bad enough to be impeachable is another thing (it's like with Clinton in the house...there was an obvious law broken but there were a few from each side that voted the other way because they didnt feel it was serious enough or they did). When you have a 100% with that many taking a vote they're just voting with their party and its obvious.

I wouldnt expect you to get that...youd have to have an IQ of at least a 3rd grader to understand. Hes still getting impeached dummy. I was just making an obvious observation to look out for.
