Impeachment?



"Because impeachment and conviction of officials involves an overturning of the normal Constitutional procedures by which individuals achieve high office (election, ratification, or appointment) and because it generally requires a supermajority, it is usually only reserved for those deemed to have committed serious abuses of their office. In the United States, for example, impeachment at the Federal level is reserved for those who may have committed "high crimes and misdemeanors". Several Federal officials, including two Presidents (Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, who were both acquitted) and several judges, have been impeached over the course of US history. US President Richard Nixon resigned before Watergate scandal impeachment proceedings could begin." ~ Wikipedia

Given the rules for impeachment, I figure it's much more likely that Trump will be forced to resign before the 2018 mid-term elections. After the mid-term elections. . . who knows? As a lawyer friend of mine likes to say, "stay tuned". :-)

  4. He is creating chaos every single day. I hope they can nail him for something. It seems like a skit gone bad.

  5. I am sorry, but seriously I am not able to understand WHY people could vote for HIM. I don't understand what he was saying about SWEDEN. We have not seen or heard anything like terror or another disaster happening there.... and I guess Norwegian newspapers would have said something if something did happened.

    1. I just learned about this on what Trump calls "fake news", Gunn. Thanks for mentioning it. Who knows? Some people feel just so frustrated by the state of politics in the U.S. and the world that they're willing to try anything. Unfortunately this is what results. But here's the latest on what happened last night in Sweden. :-)
