Bill Clinton WAS impeached….
He got thru it by running the government and dealing with the impeachment as TWO distinct sperate things while the internet boom took off…
Donald Trump is in a impeachment ‘inquiry’…..
He isn’t running a divided government …
He’s actually doesn’t trust the government he’s supposed to be running…
(He actually shut it down once)
His actions to try to single handily redraw the worlds economics has caused a slowdown in the American economy and the rest of the world….
Bill Clinton was a politician…
Donald Trump is ballroom brawler…
Bill Clinton was about a cover up of a liaison with a woman….
Donald Trump is about covering up different things he and his people have done that ARE clearly illegal…
The two are NOT in same League….
The U.S. economy has sailed through a presidential impeachment before.
In 1998, as the GOP-controlled House moved to impeach President Bill Clinton, the stock market soared and the economy grew nearly 5 percent.
But economists and Wall Street analysts note that conditions are very different now as Democrats push toward a possible impeachment of President Donald Trump.
During the Clinton impeachment, the dot com boom was making Americans exuberant about the economy. Today, the economy is slowing, consumer confidence is dipping and corporate America faces a gauntlet of worries including the trade war with China, the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement and slowing growth around the world.
And now investors, consumers and corporate executives face the prospect of a Washington consumed for months by impeachment drama and the uncertain reactions of a volatile president with a penchant for lashing out under stress.
This complex stew could damage an economy already showing signs of flagging. That in turn could further erode Trump’s standing on the economy, up to now his strongest issue.
In 1998, senior Clinton aides took heart that a rocking economy would provide a floor for the president no matter how bad things got. “The president was popular because things were going pretty well and people felt Clinton was working for them,” said Joe Lockhart, an adviser and press secretary under Clinton.
In 2019, that may not be the case….
