Republicans don’t need to vote to convict Trump in the Senate after the incoming Democratic led House would impeach him….
Republicans need to ‘do the Right Thing’ and get Donald Trump to pack his bags and quit his day job….One he NEVER should have been able to maneuver to get after THREE MILLION or so people voted for someone else to be President…..
Congress IS the issue here…
We ALL know Donald J. Trump is unfit to continue to hold the office of President of the United States….
This is ridiculous. The Founding Fathers were not unaware of the possibility that a demagogue or a knave might win the presidency. That’s why they checked the executive with an independent Congress and built in powers of impeachment. That Republicans in this Congress have proven so subservient to — or scared of — Trump that they have let the fate of the country hinge on whether his staff can adequately distract and calm him is a subversion of the constitutional order and an abdication of responsibility.
As David Frum writes:
Trump is what he is. And what he is is a man who shouldn’t be president. The question is whether our political system is capable of responding to that kind of mistake, or threat, in any serious way.
So far, the answer is no…..
We KNOW that as hard as Robert Mueller might want to charge Donald Trump with a crime….Even several?
Congress (And the current Supreme Court) won’t convict a sitting President for the sake of preserving the ‘Presidency’….
