    You don't like my post- report me. I didn't attack the poster- he was derailing his own thread and I frankly still don't know why.

    That the Senate did not convict.

    Maybe the Senate will if Trump can be shown trying to obstruct justice.

    Do bears sh!t in the woods?

    Same as DJ Trump is sh!tting himself now over the charges of obstruction of justice from all sides both GOP and DEM.

    Is a duck's azz watertight?

    Same as the case against Trump is starting to look watertight for obstruction of justice.

    Do chickens have lips?

    Same as the lying lips on Trumps mouth that lie anytime his lips are moving. Same as LBJ used to.

    The Fokker D.J. Trump is a blithering nabob -- just like Spiro T. Agnew used to say.

    Obstruction of justice, to wit:

    1 - DJ Trump asks Comey for "his personal loyalty".

    2 - DJ Trump asks Comey to let the investigation into Flynn go.

    3 - Comey asks for more funding for the Flynn investigation.

    4 - Trump fires Comey and gives half a dozen conflicting excuses for it until he finally confesses it was because of the Russian investigation.

    Case study in obstruction of justice.

    Shades of Nixon and Archibald Cox and the Saturday Night Massacre.

    He is not. He's the head of the Executive branch. While the Executive branch is part of the federal government, it's not the federal government. There are other branches of the federal government which the president has no authority over.

    DJ Trump has now committed at least 2 impeachable offenses.

    To wit:

    1 - he has slandered BH Obama about bugging Trump Towers, a misdemeanor.

    2 - he has obstructed justice, a high crime, by trying to persuade Comey to stop the investigation into Flynn and then fired Comey when he would not stop but instead asked for more funding to continue.

    Those two articles of impeachment should appear on the charge sheet.

    Didn't Obamma do the same in office?
    Was not Hillys crimes get white washed by the FBI? Did not Obamma lie in office?

    For the most part, no, because it's the executive branch's job to, given the context (where it exists) provided by the judicial branch, enforce the laws passed by the legislative branch. There are certain laws that a POTUS can, at his discretion, opt to enforce less forcefully than others, however, the laws that pertain to matters involving treason, sedition, espionage and other means by which the nation's democratic foundations are, by a concordance of domestic and foreign actors, denuded, confounded, compromised and/or corrupted are not among the laws whereof prudence grants such discretion.
