The Trump Impeachment Thread
Not even a month into his term, and the train to impeachment has already begun. From the "alternative facts" to outright lies, to ties to Russia though Michael Flynn, his direct violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution, among other issues, the momentum to impeach Trump is well underway.

That includes Republicans: Republican Painter: It's time to impeach Trump

Serious legal scholars are also in: Legal Scholars: Why Congress Should Impeach Donald Trump

And the gambling industry is making an entire industry out of it: Trump impeached? You can bet on it

An Impeach Trump petition has already garnered almost a million signatures from Democrats, Republicans and Independents: Trump impeachment petition nears one million signatures

Democrats, naturally, have already started a PAC: Congressional candidate forms Impeach Trump PAC

It's even being discussed that DJT is such a wildcard and unhinged that fellow Repubs would rather see an impeachment than having him in the WH during the 2018 mid-terms. Will Trump Be Impeached?

Now, impeachment doesn't necessarily mean that Agent Orange would be kicked out of office. Impeachment is like having a charge brought, but in this case the Senate is the only body (AFAIK) that can actually drive him from office.

To be sure, an impeachment proceeding will be extremely stressful for all parties involved and hard on the country. But could it be worse than suffering through four years of erratic, unhinged behaviour?

If nothing else, maybe he can be removed for mental defect.

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
He blatantly lied to the American people in the door of Air Force 1, last Friday, with his wife standing next to him. He said he didn't know about the Flynn report. He knew, and had known for a couple weeks. He is a pathological liar. He said it was a matter of trust. If liars cannot be trusted, he has indicted himself.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Being discussed? This was their clever wicked plan from the gitgo as soon as it was clear he was gonna be the nominee. First we get him to name Pence as running mate "It'll give you Republican credibility, Mr. Trump. Sir.", then we get Comey to go all Katherine Harris on him at the last minute to get him elected, then we give him enough rope to hang himself, and voila President Pence. No more birth control for you.

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
The thing is, the Republicans have to be the ones to begin impeachment proceedings not the Democrats, otherwise it won't happen. The only way Republicans are going to vote to impeach Trump is when they see Trump sinking so low in the population polls that they realize backing him is a huge liability and they see their jobs jeopardized. Until then, it won't matter if trump lies a million times over.

This is what happened to Nixon. It took a while for the rats finally jumped ship and that's when impeachment proceedings began but he resigned before the trial actually began.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Here is the line of succession:

Steven Mnuchin
James Mattis
Jeff Sessions

Hillary would call it a firewall of deplorables.

Mattis isn't so bad. Fat chance it would ever go that far down, though...

RE: The Trump Impeachment Thread
Between the investigation into Flint and the Russians, the investigation into Russian meddling in the election, and all the Russian financial tangles we will yet become aware of (wanna bet?), plus Trump's own claims that the elections were rigged, I think that it's not entirely off the wall to think that there will be calls to re-do the election.

In other news:

The French today also claimed to have found Russian meddling in their soon to be held elections.

The elections could just be declared invalid.

I don't see that happening given the frequencies of our elections. The costs and logistics are too much for the States to handle.

Impeachment will take a long time - one could do the election together with the mid terms.
