    Re: The Trump Impeachment Thread

    I read the Mueller report and thought that grounds for impeachment were pretty well outlined. I doubt that report was simply archived after Mueller’s testimony.

    Re: The Trump Impeachment Thread

    It makes for a great circus, but it gets so tiresome, the back and forth. I agree that there is no way the senate votes to remove him. It will be interesting to revisit this after 2020. I was thinking that he was likely to be re-elected, now I am pretty sure he will be. Nobody plays the victim card/underdog better.

    I dunno...The Bernie Bros and NeverHillaries who stayed away last time are likely to turn up in 2020. And the people most likely to fall for his BS are the same ones who fell for it last time.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    I think you're confusing Trump with the Clintons (sort of).

    There were some similarities in how they handled scandals.

    First deny, then modify, then make it difficult to get documents, and then once the documents were opened there wasn't really all that big a surprise in them.

    But your proposal assumes a level of intellect that Trump does not and has never had.

    The choice was between going ahead with impeachment or giving up on any law restraining Trump. He's been awful so far with the threat of impeachment hanging over him. If he realizes that he won't be impeached, or disciplined in any fashion, God only knows what he would pull next. This country never signed up for a President who is above the law.

    It’s not my proposal. There seems to be a LOT of disparity on how conniving Trump can be.

    I have a hard time believing that someone who behaves like a spoiled toddler is conniving.

    Toddlers are sociopaths. They have no conscience. They will do/say whatever they can to get what they want. When denied, they cry. When they think they can talk their way into it they will lie and throw anyone under the bus to get it.

    Trump does exactly this. He never had anyone tell him no, nor teach him to have a conscience.

    I don't think that you can say that someone who behaves this way, and has been allowed to get away with this behavior because no one is willing to believe that a grown man, much less the president, is willing to be seen behaving this way is conniving. That would imply that he could behave some other way, yet chooses this way. I think to try and imply some larger sensibility to the president, or some larger scheming is due to normal human beings not wanting to believe that a buffoon like trump could actually get elected to be the president.

    Can you guess which quote branded a president as a habitual liar?

    It's almost like all the Trumpers here got the message on how to explain things. They must all tune in to that "fair & balanced" farce of a network.

    nah, this is just stuff they hear about from regular everyday folks. any similarity is pure coincidence. the pervasive nature of the message just proves it's truth. check and mate libtard.

    Again...does the President have to ignore potential foreign interference if the person bragging about it happens to be running for President? There's no quid pro quo. Are we tying a President's hands?
    I started not to respond to this, but think about it...

    If we have an American President who actually thinks there is another American who has broken laws we have AMERICANS to deal with this issue. We do not go to foreign leaders who are desperate for our money and suggest we need help with our internal politics, would they mind meddling in our election? And all this said with a straight face while we withhold a quarter million in desperately needed military aid. And you excuse it?

    Re: The Trump Impeachment Thread

    On the face of it I couldn't see how Repubs would ever be able to spin this. It's right there in black and white. Trump used money assigned by congress for Ukraine military aid to pressure a foreign leader to dig up dirt on a political opponent in the upcoming election. "You can't spin that" I thought.

    Oh well.......
