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

    You can't impeach just because you think the President a "$#@!."

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

    Newly sworn-in Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib electrified progressives with her passionate declaration that she and her colleagues will " impeach the $#@!" — the "$#@!," of course, being President Trump.

    Democratic leaders were embarrassed that a high-profile freshman would speak so frankly in public. But hours before Tlaib spoke, on the first day of Democratic control of the House, another Democrat, Rep. Brad Sherman, filed a resolution of impeachment. Sherman's resolution was later co-sponsored by another colleague, Democratic Rep. Al Green.

    The efforts by Sherman and Green, who filed his own articles in 2017, and another House Democrat, Rep. Steve Cohen, who also introduced articles in Trump's first months in office, are nothing new. Nor are those efforts a lonely quest. In an early 2018 procedural vote, 66 Democrats voted in favor of moving an impeachment measure forward.

    But on what grounds, specifically, do the pro-impeachment Democrats intend to remove the president?
    The article looks at the articles on the table and they come up short.

    They want to impeach him for beating Hildebeast. That's all of it.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    • After taking office, Trump asked FBI Director James Comey to abandon the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election—which the FBI had already connected to Michael Flynn.
    • When Comey refused to alter course, Trump fired him.
    • 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.

    That is piled pretty high. How much practiced did you need to be able to pile crap so high?

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


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    I was asking for evidence for impeachment.

    Simply not true. Check your facts. Your initial premise is completely false. Your ensuing argument is also entirely false.
