    Obviously you've strayed from the good and joined the dark side.

    For the purpose of impeachment and removal from office, the Constitution explicitly says that the president must be guilty of an actual crime. A vague charge like "abuse of power" doesn't cut it.
    Trumps crimes are detailed under the heading "abuse of power." But again, an actual codified crime isn't necessary only a breach of the public trust is necessary and that is left to Congress to decide.

    What's even more amazing is that they MOCK the very members of their own party who are warning them of the error of their ways!

    Some of their more experienced operators are yelling "there's a cliff up ahead" and they yell back "shut up, you old fool --- full speed ahead!!!"

    Are you alluding to the "never trumpers?"

    It does not surprise me in the least that you missed the context, and spoke, instead, from the bubble.

    And Congress determined that the President was not guilty.

    Thus why you canít figure out why Clinton isnít president. Youíre a case study in brainwashing and bubble living.

    Of course we want to bring evil incarnate to its knees, but evil incarnate are your words not mine, it's really the GOP that's evil incarnate, it's members are just unprincipled political hacks looking out for themselves.
    Yet, itís not the GOP thatís currently ignoring the wishes of half the population in Virginia, it wasnít the GOP that brought down the law on a baker for not baking a cake, nor is it the GOP that wants to raise my taxes to pay for people to get worthless degrees. This is why Hillary lost and will likely be why the Democrats will lose again.

    There should be a national day off for voting so people can vote at their liesure and not stand in mile long lines, if they can even get their on time after working all day.
    Millions of people are smart enough to make the time to vote or to get absentee ballets to vote with. Your democrat masters are lying to you and you swallow it like the fool you are.

    Hardly, Trumpís policies would be Democrat policies, in the JFK era.

    Itís pretty funny. Trump would be a Democrat, in policies and politics, not too long ago.

    Not only did the unprincipled republican majority determine that Trump was not guilty, they determined as well that he can do whatever he wants and withhold the evidence. So much for 3 equal branches and oversight of a tyranical executive. You wanted a dictator, and you are now well on your way to getting one.
