    *Impeaching Trump could backfire?*

    If your team has to cheat to win, you should probably begin reassessing your allegiances.

    America is polarized.
    There’s the aging, spiteful and vitriolic, corrupt and xenophobic, hateful and misogynistic bullies in the Republican party, that has only won the Presidential election ONCE with the popular vote, (George Bush Sr.) since Richard Nixon.

    And then there’s everyone else.

    Trump appointed Whittaker so he could look into Mueller’s files and report back. Is this Legal and or Ethical ?

    I agree. Now that the dems have the house, there’s no need to impeach. I don’t want Pence or Ryan any closer to potus than they already are.

    “It seems they dont have any road left…” let me remind u of bombs, guns and hatred. The holy trinity of the “United” States of America, ah the irony.

    Hey, Conservatives impeached Clinton.

    It’s just business.

    Trump replaced Sessions with someone who wasn’t just a flunky. Whitaker isn’t legally qualified to replace Sessions. There is a clear line of succession defined by law in order to prevent what Trump is trying to do.

    Suggesting that Democrats merely roll over instead of investigating Trump’s crimes, as the House and Senate SHOULD have been doing all along, would just hand Trump carte blanche to carry on doing as he pleases. Comparing Trump to Clinton is laughable, Trump is not going to pick up more supporters because he is being exposed, if anything, people may actually start to realise just how much he has been betraying America and turn on him.
    Trump is NEVER going to be non-partisan, it’s either his way or the highway, he’s not only made that perfectly clear through his actions, he’s openly said it in interviews, most recently that multiple hour whining and ranting that he did in front of the Press Corps. The ONLY way to recover and protect the Democracy of America is to fight those who are trying to warp the nation into a fascist dictatorship, and that means fighting Trump and his henchmen. Rolling over will literally betray the votes of every person who voted Democrat!
    Democrats need to stop being utterly pathetic and wet, and start standing up and defending US Democracy while there is still any left!
    They have the power to prevent the majority of the crimes and injustice that Trump is pushing now, and if they don’t use it, then they are allowing America to be destroyed.

    Personally, I believe that the useless leadership of the Democratic party NEEDS to change, those who are at the top now are far too comfortable and settled, and seem to have little interest in rocking the boat too much. And at this time, rocking the boat is exactly what is needed before the Trump Party tear a hole in the hull!

    I love how naive liberals are putting all their faith in the party which allowed Trump to happen in the first place. The Democrats are a party of snivelling cowards, power-hungry sociopaths, and privileged policy wonks. They don’t care about the country any more than Trump does — and if you recall, Trump _was_ a Democrat in the past and fit right in. If you’re counting on the party of navel-gazing champagne liberal elites to competently fix this country, you’re dreaming.

    *”Political rights do not originate in parliaments; they are rather forced upon them from without. They do not exist because they have been legally set down on a piece of paper, but only when they have become the ingrown habit of a people, and when any attempt to impair them will meet with the violent resistance of the populace.”* — _Rudolf Rocker_

    Actually, he didn’t even hint at why I believe impeaching Trump would backfire: Mike Pence

    Do you want him as president? At least Trump is stupid and easily directed. Pence, on the other hand is smart, controlling and driven.

    Let’s just hope they’re both busted.

    If there are degrees of offence – Trump is in the oxy-acetylene temperature scale – which demands an extraordinary response like impeachment. But with a GOP Senate the likelihood of Trump being tried by the Senate is beyond unlikely. Trump could avoid impeachment by resigning – but that’s another unlikely scenario given the Senate’s reluctance to fulfill it’s Constitutional obligations. So Trump is now like a tank in deep mud with one of its tracks blown off. He’s stuck, bogged down, he knows it, and he’s in a white hot rage. He will lash out – and, if it suits him, will shut the country down on Dec 7th. when the Government runs out of money. He’ll blame the Dems – naturally… Welcome to bicameral legislative realities Donny – not quite like The Apprentice eh? What are the chances he’ll put on even more weight? You want fries with those fries?

    I’ve got backfired already, my account world’s netizen got banned again with no reason just after the mid-term election! LOL, bring it on. Trump&Trumptards! Prove me wrong if you all can, otherwise, just confirmed what I said is right.
