    January 15, 2020 - IMPEACHMENT: DO REPUBLICANS HAVE MORE FUN?

    Impeached for getting blowjobs???

    Hardly.

    The Supreme Court boycotted his final SOTU - even the two justices he appointed!

    If President Trump had committed a crime, there would be no controversy here. The impeachment would be bi-partisan.

    Trump can shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and Republicans would look the other way. They are proving that in Congress

    Yeah, Lefties like to say that...but funny, they can never point to an actual crime that he's committed.

    Remember during the Clinton impeachment democrats were grabbing microphones from everyone and claiming impeachment must never be partisan. Not only was this one partisan but they could not get all of their members to vote in favor.

    During the Johnson impeachment rules were set in place. When it looked like Nixon would be impeached the rules were again talked about. During the Clinton impeachment the rules were again put in place. That is over 140 years of the impeachment rules being in place. Now the democrats want to change them and make the senate do their job. If the senate has to do the houses job why does the house even need to be involved? They claimed they had a rock solid case now suddenly they need more testimony and documents.

    The democrats claimed they had to act swiftly because Trump was such a threat. Then sat on the articles for almost a month.

    The democrats claimed that impeachment is sad and somber. During the signing they were handing out souvenirs, laughing, joking, shaking hands. The only thing missing from the party was the champagne and dancing girls.

    Scratch this impeachment and you find nothing but lies and partisan dirty politics.

    Bill Clinton committed perjury related to a non-material issue and was impeached for it.

    He committed perjury because he lied under oath.

    Trump refuses to be questioned under oath.

    That is the only reason that he has not committed the crime of perjury.

    And ALL Trump supporters know this to be true.

    If you have to rate the last three impeachments, it would go something like this. Nixon - the most deserving recipient of impeachment even though his crimes pale in comparison to Obama's FBI, CIA, DOJ. Clinton - his impeachment turned into a sexual witch hunt which ended up being a big waste of time and money. Trump - A totally fabricated sham by a party incapable of leading.

    Monica was their scapegoat. She never had an affair with Bill. At the time, they were trying to impeach Bill for colluding with China. That they knew that the Republicans party wasn't going to stop until they have impeach him. And so Bill thrown to them a new bone to get the Republicans from off of his trail. Because the Chinagate scandal had more than just the Clinton involvement. That there was other political figures that were colluding with China and with other countries.

    Nixon wasn't impeached.

    Johnson was.

    And Clinton wasn't impeached for sex....."on grounds of perjury to a grand jury (first article, 228–206) and obstruction of justice (third article, 221–212)."


    And I agree about the Trump farrago...
