    This is the approach that Trump has taken - using the government shutdown to BLACKMAIL the Senate Democrats into passing the bill funding the Mexican border wall.

    Meanwhile, Mitch McConnell has surrendered the Senate as an independent branch of Government.

    No matter what justification you may have for building a wall, BLACKMAIL is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE!

    No matter what the President wants the Democrats should never give into this method.

    Blackmail should NEVER be allowed to succeed!

    What the House of Representatives should do is:

    Impeach the President over and over again. Multiple impeachments are not unconstitutional.

    That would force the Senate to put the President on trial over and over again.

    If McConnell refuses to put the President on trial, the House of Representatives should impeach McConnell

    McConnell would be forced to recuse himself from his own impeachment Trial.

    This process could go on continuously until the President re-opens government.

    Blackmail is today's buzzword?
    Thought it was hostage.

    Just can't keep up with NPC soundbites anymore.

    The Wall is chump change. Barry Hussein spent more bailing out failed solar companies. Democrats don't give a damn about federal workers. They are using blackmail tactics to prevent the President from following through with a campaign promise.

    Fail. For a failed flailing thread.
    How appropriate.

    Undermining the Constitutional legislative process by blackmailing the Senate Democrats is an impeachable offense. The Democrats have no obligation to help uphold the President's campaign promises.

    There is no Constitutional relationship that was violated by Obama. Trump's use of blackmail to undermine the Constitutional legislative process is an impeachable offense.
