Am I correct, in that Trump has a path to American history as the first impeached and re-elected?

    If he is impeached, it fails and then he is re-elected, will he become the first in history for this to happen to?

    If so, this could be far more powerful a 2020 than imagined. It would be forever in the history books as the power of the people over the political class. It literally would be referred to in the future by people who demand accountability and reject elitism, big pocket global donors etc.

    There will be an American First president in the future. Another threat, be it China or some other nation, and you can imagine a speech that references our present time:

    "Remember the election of 2020, when the 45th President Trump won in a landslide, AFTER some tried to remove him from office, based on flimsy charges, as they didn't believe the American people should freely choose him again?

    As defiant Americans, we did re-elect him however. A reminder to those who try to circumvent our vote, that we are a Republic and we will choose our destiny. I ask you to do the same for me in the election of 2092!"

    History is going to look badly on the pushers of the impeachment if that happens
    The future will wonder why the traitors weren't hanged.

    It's a very likely scenario.

    OP is correct. Trump will be the first impeached president that wins re-election, probably in a landslide.

    Alan Dershowitz said that when the USSC took the case of the congressional subpoena for Trump's tax returns that voided their 2nd article of impeachment. It proved that the president does have the right to judicial appeal and that a congressional subpoena is not an imperative.

    Here's hoping that the House votes down their articles to minimize the egg on their faces. If they do pass both articles I hope Roberts throws the 2nd one out.

    Nothing is guaranteed in life, but if it's never been done before, the world might get the opportunity to witness history.

    I'd guess so.

    I'd also expect impeachment threats, hearings, inquiries and attempts to be a fairly regular thing from now on.

    How nice it is, that we have split into tribes. Our elected representatives utilizing their time to work together for the good of America 'n stuff.

    Making excuses already? Trump winning in 2020 will be because all the democrat candidates suck, as do their policies.
