Articles of impeachment filed

November 17, 2017

Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen led a group of fellow Democrats yesterday in formally filing articles of impeachment against President Trump, which could best be compared to doing for their base what the trainers at Sea World do when they toss chum to the seals. They seem to have started with the premise on Election Day that they’re really bummed that Trump won, so let’s impeach him. But they overlooked the part of the Constitution that requires some kind of actual reasons, such as “high crimes and misdemeanors.” So their grounds range from non-crimes (he fired FBI Director James Comey, which he has the power to do) to the bizarre (Trump illegally profits from his office because the Secret Service rents golf carts from Trump courses to follow him when he plays).

This stuff probably goes over big with the contingent of far-left constituents who believe that if Trump is impeached, Hillary will become President because she came in second. But more informed voters might be starting to suspect that Steven King movies aren’t the only place these days where you can find dangerous clowns.

    They neglected to include the most grievous offense of all, i.e., DJT is an untreated Twitter addict. But as to the succession of office, after Trump comes Pence, Ryan, Orrin Hatch, Tillerson, Mnuchin, Mattis and Sessions, Republicans all.

    Donald Trump is the best thing that ever happened to America. You want Socialism go live in France, England, Russia.
    And by the way you Democratic, Liberals -- Airheads. If the government gives a big Company a tax break. -- They get to sell their product cheaper. If you raise the taxes on a big corporation they raise their prices and we pay their tax increase... I don't know if you can figure this out, but tax breaks for big companies means cheaper prices. ( I said this twice because liberals are so dumb)

    I think, instead of sitting in a dark room somewhere, trying to find something, anything, no matter how bogus to use to impeach the President, they would do so much more for the American citizens by doing the work they were elected to do--pretty much like President Trump is doing the work that he was voted into office to do. Then, just like this weird ad on some tv stations (one I know that the owner or whatever is cnn, probably the other is, too) where the guy cries about Trump's dealing with Russia, and how he has taken money from foreign entities. Uhmm....it seems that is what hilary did. You know the Uranium One deal (oh, yeah, that was as business as Secretary of State, regardless of the clintons profiting from it.) And, all those foreign entities who have poured money into the clinton foundation--of course, we all know that foundation only does good and the clintons don't get any of the money, cough cough. Then, there is the little thing about who would become President if Donald Trump was impeached--and it wouldn't be dear hilary. Seems that the Presidency would be going to Mike Pence. I don't know for sure about the yahoos who declared items of impeachment, but it does appear there are people who actually think impeaching Donald Trump would reverse the election, and that the office would go to hilary. smh.

    I have never heard of anything SO ridiculous! A bunch of two year olds who know that they are a part of the swamp that Donald Trump intends to drain! Instead of actually looking at the good things he is accomplishing, they blindly pursue this phony impeachment and continue to harass him and throw stumbling blocks in his path. God chose him because of his ability to t shrug it off and go about the business of Making America Great Again". God bless Donald Trump and God Bless America.

    I have a great idea. How about a rule that says if you push a bill that is simply made for TV and has absolutely no chance of ever happening and then you get your butt handed to you on the floor that instead of an impeachment -- Every moron that signed onto the thing to begin with is forced to resign their seat and never run for political office again.--
