We’ve only had two presidential impeachments in our history and they didn’t result in a president leaving office. Nixon resigned before the House could vote on impeachment. Nixon was caught in the Watergate scheme to break into the DNC headquarters and record them. Although he denied knowledge of it, all the evidence was there to impeach. Clinton committed perjury and obstruction of justice during a sexual harassment deposition regarding Paula Jones. “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” he infamously remarked with his finger wagging. He stayed in office as the Senate didn’t vote to impeach. Andrew Johnson stayed in office for the same reason. The primary charge against Johnson was violation of the Tenure of Office Act.
Trump hasn’t lied under oath nor has he broken into the DNC’s office. He didn’t hack the DNC emails nor do anything untoward while in the office of the presidency. Trump hasn’t enlisted the help of another country to get dirt on his opponent, but Hillary and Obama did. Can we impeach Obama retroactively? Trump hasn’t threatened another country to do something or else, but Biden has. Can we impeach Biden retroactively? Of course none of these things will happen because the Democrats protect their own.
Trump’s done nothing as it compares to Bill Clinton having an affair in plain sight in the oval office with Monica. Outrageous behavior that the Democrats all condoned and circled the wagons, even Kirsten Gillibrand. The Democrats clearly hold Trump to a different standard.
The Democrats have been looking for something to impeach Trump on from day one because their “chosen one” Hillary failed to win the election. Listening in on his phone calls has been their SOP–standard operating procedure. As a result, this impeachment word has been watered down especially by “the squad.” That’s all they talk about. One even said, “Impeach the mother -ucker!” to a crowd of followers who cheered. The Democrats are behaving like heathens. And the squad has the intelligence of The View.
The House can’t even agree to which “high crime and misdemeanor or treason or bribery that Trump committed. Trump has committed none of these. Maybe a little sloppy with his wording in a conversation with Ukraine president but that is all. They will stretch the meaning of high crimes and misdemeanors to fit their narrative that Trump is “bad for the country” so, therefore, he must go; despite the fact that he’s been one of the most successful presidents in modern history on level with President Ronald Reagan.
Congressional materials have cautioned that the grounds for impeachment “do not all fit neatly and logically into categories” because the remedy of impeachment is intended to “reach a broad variety of conduct by officers that is both serious and incompatible with the duties of the office”. Congress has identified three general types of conduct that constitute grounds for impeachment, although these categories should not be understood as exhaustive:
(1) improperly exceeding or abusing the powers of the office;
(2) behavior incompatible with the function and purpose of the office; and
(3) misusing the office for an improper purpose or for personal gain. Wikipedia
As you can see above, it is vague and misleading what constitutes impeachment which leads me to believe that it’s whatever the House decides is “incompatible with the function of the office of president.” But impeachment has never been spoken of so often and so loosely by members of the House about any previous president. Never has a president in recent history received so much scrutiny of his character, his family, or his performance. They never did this to G.W. Bush, probably because Bush just took the insults and never fought back.
“And what does the radical left do for such greatness? They want to destroy. They want civilization to be run like a corrupt ring. I say stand now with Trump. Let truth prevail. And may God show all the truth, that we are truly a nation stronger because of our president. The left are afraid, for their power is lessening with every deal that is accomplished by Donald Trump.”Jon Voight
Thank you Jon Voight for sticking up for our president. It shows you put courage over career. Like to hear from Clint Eastwood too. I agree they’re at war with the conservatives, and we need to stick together and stand up for Trump.
Impeachment is repeated so often by the fake news mob and the Democrats that it has been diluted to the level of seriousness of a parking ticket. Trump will be impeached for parking in a red zone by the time they’re done with him.
