    Whats not true?

    Did Trump ask Comey to abandon the investigation? Is that truth?

    Did Trump afterwards fire Comey? Is that truth?

    Did Trump admit to firing Comey because of the "Russia thing" to Lester Holt? Is that not truth?

    Did he not tweet months late saying he fired Flynn because he lied to the FBI? Is that not truth?

    This makes me smile.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    What, precisely, do Democrats want to impeach Trump for?

    They were talking about impeachment even on election night. They want Trump impeached for one simple reason. He won the election he wasn't supposed to win.

    Let's say you're right. Where's the impeachable crime there?

    Trump told Comey that if anyone in his campaign did anything illegal he wanted to know. Trump told him to continue.
    Did Trump afterwards fire Comey? Is that truth?
    He did. It was a move most everyone in the country supported before it hapoened.

    Did Trump admit to firing Comey because of the "Russia thing" to Lester Holt? Is that not truth?
    Yes, he said that was part of it. Comey obviously bungled the initial stages of that fiasco.

    Did he not tweet months late saying he fired Flynn because he lied to the FBI? Is that not truth?
    And?

    • Trump then admitted the firing was over “the Russia thing” in a televised interview.
    • In a tweet months later, he stated that he “had to fire Michael Flynn because he lied to the FBI”— further affirming that he dismissed James Comey in an attempt to quash the FBI’s investigation.
    Then notice how the sloppy partisan hack attempted to move the goalposts...

    Then another sloppy partisan hack, that just won an award on tPF, decided to jump in and help move the goalposts....

    Nobody is holding a gun to your head. If you don't like what I post, ignore me. I'll post what I want, when I want, and where I want, regardless of how you or anyone else feels about it.

    Probably none. Just a cut and paste for the DNC issued talking points.

    Impeachment is not a legal act, it is a political act. The Framers intent, and the limited case law associated with impeachment sets a fairly high bar for what "high crimes and misdemeanors" means.

    If impeachment is used for frivolous reason, and if courts ultimately uphold it, impeachment will become a common political tool that will be used by both sides and could very well paralyze the government. The democrats realize this and that is why the more rational democrats are trying to push back against all of this impeachment rhetoric.
