I won't vote to impeach Senator Lumine.
This isn't his duty to participate in the senate threads, although he of course can. What he has to do is to sign bills or redraft. No bill had passed during this period, so he had nothing to do.
So this will be a Nay,
Especially considering he has been active with his ISIS stuff

EDIT: And, Griffin did nothing wrong, he just respected the constitution. So, no need to attack him.

Impeachement is a serious charge, but it must be considered that it does put the process in motion it does not specify the end result (removal). The process occurring as an automatic trigger and thus creating the potential for removal, is suppose to act as the inducement for the PResident to conform to the standard applied in the text. The President can make a case as to why he should not be impeached and the Senate has the discretion to decline to do so.

I think that when it comes to the fact that the impeachement is not gone through with and seeing that as a disappointment, misses the fact that using impeachment in this instance is a novel occurence and that the end goal is to induce the activity. The mood of the Senators can be hard to predict and thus to avoid the risk of a Senate with seven Windjammers on issue voting for the obvious result, compliance would be the regular approach. That was my understanding when I voted for the amendments that established this process. In every other case, the end goal of impeachement is to punish for an offense that has been committed. One requires impeachment to actually be carried through with, whilst the other does not necessarily do likewise.
Seven Windjammers???

Well, with some thought, I will probably Abstain, or vote Aye if there are enough Nay votes.

Not against you Lumine, just symbolical, I would like the president to be more involved in the senate threads.

Well, I'm sure it won't pass:
So symbolic AYE.

I would like the president to be more active in the senate threads in the future.
