    There are no grounds for impeachment because democrats have a sore ass.

    the notion is that the president can not be charged with a crime in a court of law while president, because it could distract the president of his presidential duties.... (or is it cuz he can't go to jail?)

    that theory has not been tested through the courts on constitutionality....

    the argument is that the President would have to be impeached, and thrown out of office before he could be prosecuted for his crimes by the Justice system because it would be too distracting for the president, while president to go through a trial...

    kind of falls flat on its face when the impeachment process is an indictment and the impeachment trial in the senate is a trial...yet that is written in to the constitution......?

    and an impeachment trial could be even more distracting than a court trial, you would think???

    There were 14 in person meetings, plus 40 plus emails and texts and 60 plus phone calls between the Trump campaign team and Russian operatives that Mueller investigators have uncovered so far.... that's an awful lot of contact between a USA Foreign adversary.....that's high for a campaign speaking to a foreign ally of ours, let alone an adversary....

    Let's just say the Trump team was knee deep in Russia connections....

    And Trump lied to us, said he and his team had NO CONTACT or connections to any Russians....

    My oh my oh my, has THAT changed.... Why did Trump lie from the get go about it? What is he hiding? What were all of the Trump team hiding by their amnesia on their contacts with all those Russian operatives?

    Something smells funny in Denmark
