Trump's Impeachment Might Be Getting Closer (HBO)

  • Published on May 23, 2019
  • Wednesday was supposed to be the day that Democrats and the president put aside their partisan fights to focus on doing something they both really want to do - fix the nation's crumbling infrastructure.
    President Trump has wanted to do this since he started his administration. Democrats have been eager to do it for years. Trump has said often he's happy to work with Democrats on a proposal even some members of the GOP might not like. Democrats have said they're happy to work with him on infrastructure even though they really do not like him very much.
    Wednesday was also the day that House Democrats who want to impeach the president forced a closed-door meeting of the Democratic caucus to discuss getting impeachment underway. Trump has been blocking House investigations, adding fuel to the simmering call for impeachment that began after the Mueller Report was released in its redacted form. House Democratic leadership, for the most part, has been against impeachment - they think it's an electoral loser.
    Everyone not working at the White House or for the House Democrats were looking for some kind of sign indicating if Trump and the Democrats can work together on infrastructure even as they stand off over investigations and impeachment.
    Fortunately, there was a very clear sign taped to the President's lectern at an impromptu press conference following a meeting between Trump and Democratic leadership. The sign said, in part, "No Collusion." It did not say "yes infrastructure."

    By: Hyram F. Suddfluffel, PhD, (Political Science)

    I have a degree in Political Science, and I am a card-carrying Libertarian.

    I've been studying politics and political history for the past 30 years. My specialty is U.S. Presidents. That said, I hope that the House of Representatives impeaches Trump. Let me tell you what will happen next!

    1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial.

    2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number of Democrats, to not convict the President. Legally, it will all be over at that point.

    3. However, during the trial, and this is what no one is thinking about right now, the President's attorneys will have the right to subpoena and question ANYONE THEY WANT. That is different than the special counsel investigation, which was very one-sided. So, during the impeachment trial, we will be hearing testimony from James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson, Donna Brazille, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Christopher Steele, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Clapper, and a whole host of other participants in this whole sordid affair and the ensuing coverup activities. A lot of dirt will be dug up; a lot of truth will be unveiled. Finger pointing will occur. Deals will start being made, and suddenly, a lot of democrats will start being charged and going to prison. All this, because, remember, the President's team will now, for the first time, have the RIGHT to question all of these people under oath - and they will turn on each other. That is already starting.

    4. Lastly, one more thing will happen, the Senate will not convict the President. Nothing will happen to Trump. Most Americans are clueless about political processes, the law, and the Constitution. Most Americans believe that being impeached results in removal from office. They don't understand that phase 2 is a trial in and by the Senate, where he has zero chance of conviction. Remember, the Senate is controlled by Republicans; they will determine what testimony is allowed -- and **everything** will be allowed, including: DNC collusion with the Clinton campaign to fix the election in favor of Hillary, the creation of the Trump dossier, the cover up and destruction of emails that very likely included incriminating information. They will incriminate each other for lying to the FISA court, for spying and wiretapping the Trump campaign, and for colluding with foreign political actors, especially George Soros. After the Senate declines to convict the President, we will have an election, and Trump will win. It will be a backlash against democrat petulance, temper tantrums, hypocrisy and dishonesty. Even minorities will vote for Trump, because, for the first time, they will see that democrats have spent 2+ years focused on maintaining their own power, and not doing anything at all about black murders in Chicago, homelessness, opioids, and other important issues that are actually killing people. And, we will spend the following four years listening to politicians and pundits claim that the whole impeachment was rigged.

    So let's move on to impeachment.

    you realize impeachment is possible because Donald Trump is not on any side it's about time we check them out the white house because he been saying too many racist things etorque families apart
    there's so many Mexican kids that don't have families right now because of him you know how that feels from hearing that from him I have to be honest and I don't care what I say Donald Trump is one of the worst United States presidents I ever seen in my life and everybody knew that was going to happen by the beginning but I would you hired a business man that's racist that will say racist things and that will Target certain people that is racist this supposed to be the land of free not the land of Shame and he want to build a wall for America for Mexicans to pay for it we're already in debt we are trillions of dollars in debt if we spend another billions of dollars on a wall we're going to go deep down more in debt and he said Mexico is going to pay for it one Mexico don't even have that much of a government because the cartel literally took over the country like he really have no filter
    like there's things to say and things to not say the all the things he say it's mostly the things you should not say I literally don't care who else is going to be president in the white house I just don't want him as president no more because if World War III breaks out and it's because of something he said that was racist and stupid I'm not forgiven him for that that's why the government had the pit on the big boy pants and take the presidential see away from him then just walking away from him because you walk away from him there's only going to be so much repercussions afterwards like I don't care about politics I want to see the government fight back because I really don't know if I can really stand him as president for the next four years if he wins again

    What a shame si much time and money wasted that could be used for our President to get his job done. For all the Trump Trolls yes I don't agree with all he has done and for me to vote for him he needs to clear up one issue. I would rather vote for him again then vote for some back stabbing Democrats whose only job was constantly trying to use propaganda to bring him down.

    Trump has been lying ever since - just like George Bush II who "never knew anything about 9-11" nor about the innocent people of Iraq. The whole media and the corrupt, unconstitutional system has been protecting Trump, Obama, Clinton and the Bushes who have all been criminal and mass murders on their individual scale.

    Pelosi is whacked in the head, now they think Trump is involved in a coverup. 35 million spent and they found nothing but lets just keep saying he's dirty. This is why the DNC are on the outs with the American people. They don't play nice at all and actually get nothing done. all they do is conspire on ways to get rid of a duly elected President. People are going to remember this in future elections. The DNC will never learn.

    What I want to know is...where are all those a-list actors and entertainers that swore they would leave the country if Trump became president. Not one them left.... lying little shits. So, when he wins again in 2020....will you promise you will leave then? Dont make a promise and not do it. Have some integrity. And bring all your friends with you.

You douchebags work for us, we don't work for you and AMERICA will remove your asses.
