    Default Impeaching Trump: Make America Sane Again

    OK, what is the over/under on when this happens? I say 12 months into his term. Max.

    That seems fair.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Do you really believe the House will do that to one of their own? I don't.

    At least past the mid-terms... The Grand Ole Party is not going to impeach one of their own.

    I am guessing in his second term like Slick Willie.

    When guys like Chaffetz are asking for the Comey memos, that's an indication he has very few real allies left.

    Can we all just agree the best thing for the country at this point would be for Trump to die of natural causes?

    I think this is more like BYU to the Big 12. People will make a lot of noise, but it'll never really happen.

    Unless he resigns he will serve his full term.

    Elizabeth Warren, the dem party candidate, will have a total break down and will try to physically strangle Drumpf live in a debate after he won't stop calling her "Pocahontas". She has to be physically restrained and taken off the stage. Most of the democrats then throw their vote to Bernie Sanders, the Green party candidate. The more reasonable democrats vote for the libertarian. Trump wins with the lowest popular vote percentage in history. The Libertarian comes in 2nd.

    So JL thinks the republicans will impeach a president from their own party? That'll only happen if solid evidence ever comes out, which clearly hasn't happened yet.

    Over.

    Remember, at every opportunity the GOP/voters had to choose anyone other than Trump, they chose him. There is a solid minority that are still behind him. This base is all that the GOP has left, since basically everyone else is lumping the sane republican leaders with Trump. They will not throw away the only support they have unless/until there is overwhelming evidence against Trump. This is going to take awhile.

    It wouldn't really take that many votes from the Republicans, assuming the dems all vote for it. It's not like the GOP has huge majorities.

    I thought it took a 2/3rds vote rather than a simple majority... but of course given the path Drumpf is on maybe they will get it.

    There will be more dirt. If his approval numbers stay this bad it's only a matter of time before his fate is pretty much sealed, IMO. The Republicans will make the political calculation that it's better to run away from him than lose the House and Senate in 2018.

    But they will wait until the next election rather than impeach him in office.

    It depends on what else gets revealed and how unpopular Trump gets, IMO. I don't think they want to go down with the ship. 2018 may even be way too late. They don't want to end up in the minority again.

    The problem is that Trump is just dumber than sand. When somebody says to him, "oh you can't do that," that's his cue to double down on whatever ridiculous thing they're talking about. Him trying to get Comey to drop the Flynn investigation sounds 100% like Trump-- acting like that's a negotiation so he can salt away favor with Flynn for future use. Ryan and Chaffetz see the writing on the wall, hopefully, and this isn't just a ruse. I wonder if they each have had their own little illegal experiences that are now dawning on them and they're scared shitless just thinking "fuuuuu** this," playing ball before it's too late.

    I don't think he is dumb, but he certainly is the most reckless.

    The house wont act until it's clear they would not survive re-election. That territory is very well charted.

    This man is sociopathic. If they move to impeach him, I wouldn't put it past him to Reichstag Fire his wife.

    Here's my concern about this move to impeach: I'm no attorney, but this doesn't sound like obstruction of justice, technically speaking, outside of maybe a claim that he was fired because he didn't stop the Flynn investigation? Is there any chance that the GOP will back a special counsel to look into this technical charge, find him innocent but maybe issue some sort of reprimand, and then walk away, satisfied they've investigated Trump? Trump gently asking Comey to stop investigating Flynn ranks so low on the list of stuff that is undoubtedly out there on this dirtbag.

    On the positive side, any chance that Chaffetz' announcement stems from a desire to claim a shred of dignity and actually do his job, without any threat of reprisal? It would be nice to see him find a spine somewhere. Oh, and then he could maybe actually look at his daughter and wife again in the eye.

    EDIT: just saw that the special counsel is going to look fully into Russian ties. That's good news.

    I am not so sure, Frank... Didn't Bush Jr appoint this guy back in the day? Anyone that Bush Jr approves of can't be good news. Hell, this Mueller guy might even be golfing buddies with Dick Chenney. Of course, that would be better than being hunting buddies with Dick Chenney.

    Edit: He has Newt's endorsement... I feel better now.

    Don't know where to post this, but Flynn pushed back against a plan to attack ISIS that Turkey opposed. You can't make this shit up.

    Good to know his personal business dealings had nothing to do with our foreign policy decisions. I'm sure that's true of the president as well.
