proceedings will begin?
I figure they will begin in 2019 only because:
Elections in 2018, with 33 of the 100 seats in the Senate being contested.
And it won't be because of Russian ties but the attempted cover-up - just like Nixon.
By Trump having a one-to-one private WH dinner to induce Comey to commit an unlawful or evil act via a 'Loyalty Oath' to Trump alone, (and not to the Office of the Presidency) is impeachable.
It is an impeachable offense because obstruction of justice isn’t merely a crime in the U.S. Code, it is a crime against the Constitution itself.
Let's try to remember that Comey had 33,000 reasons (or more) to indict Hillary Clinton and decided on his own that no one would prosecute her. He is the one who was obstructing justice, but now he is out of the way and there isn't anyone obstructing justice. I believe the new AG should call for a grand jury, like what should have happened and Hillary will be prosecuted. It should be one hot summer if I am right, (I could be wrong).
Comey and the Clinton Corruption go back to the HSBC Scandal, its documented. They have some nefarious history.
The Democrats were calling for Comey to be fired before it finally happened. Their hypocrisy is stunning, and it is now black and white that they are the ones who are partisan. They wanted Hillary to be the president and she likely would have fired Comey on day one.
It is a joyous season, especially if justice is served on Hillary. She doesn't have Comey protecting her now. President Trump is draining the swamp just like he promised, I expect justice on bothsides.
Severe understanding deficit:
What does FBI stand for? It INVESTIGATES, it is not the prosecutor.
Within the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI is responsible to the attorney general, and it reports its findings to U.S. Attorneys across the country. The FBI's intelligence activities are overseen by the Director of National Intelligence.
The official mission of the FBI is to uphold the law through the investigation of violations of federal criminal law; to protect the United States from foreign intelligence and terrorist activities; to provide leadership and law enforcement assistance to federal, state, local, and international agencies; and to perform these responsibilities in a manner that is responsive to the needs of the public and is faithful to the Constitution of the United States.
The FBI does not prosecute cases. It provides investigative information to United States attorneys, who then use that information to decide whether to prosecute.
So blame the head of DOJ - hmmm who is that now? Jeff Sessions? Why doesn't Jeff Session prosecute Hillary? Riddle me that Batman.
Wow, you didn't know that?
Perhaps there will be no impeachment like in the 1960's with Richard Nixon because we are used to be lied to.
The diarrhea of lies within the feculent swamp of DC has now oozed over into general pubic discussion where we are becoming accustomed to the festering swarm of maggots that we call our political leaders.

I suppose it would be best to wait and see if the guy has done anything wrong.
You are absolutely correct. Time is on the side of truth. Therefore allow a complete investigation and let all the poisons seep out of the infected wound. If Trump believed himself to be innocent - he wouldn't be attempting to shut it down - now would he?
If you were accused of a crime you did not commit, you would in order to help in your own defense - to have a full and complete investigation that you know in your heart - would exonerate you of any wrongdoing. Wouldn't you?
Watch how guilty Donald Trump is behaving concerning these allegations about colluding with Russia. People with nothing to hide do not act how he’s behaved. Innocent people don’t usually try to deflect attention away from themselves by pushing ridiculous conspiracies — guilty people do.
I am NOT saying that if you have nothing to hide then invasion of privacy shouldn't be a problem. Asserting one's own privacy it not in itself suspicious. But this investigation is no fishing trip.
An Innocent Man Is Never Frightened By the Truth; But A Guilty Man Will Try To Hide It As Long As He Can.
The gruesome and awful way Trump fired Comey was calculated:
I wouldn't mind a complete investigation but I do remember the attempts to thwart an investigation on Hillary, the lies attempting to confuse and muddy the waters during the investigation on Hillary, the bemoaning of 'witch hunt' by the left while an investigation was being attempted and the subterfuge of Bill meeting with government officials while denying it was in any way improper.
If we could all act as adults and let a fair and honest investigation happen, without partisan politics raising its ugly head....and if we could all agree that this would now be the norm (no matter which party a person is affiliated with) I'd be happy.
Alan Dershowitz is an attorney and a legend. He says, Trump is innocent.
"Even assuming that Trump was improperly motivated in firing Comey, motive alone should never constitute a crime. There should have to be an unlawful act. And exercising constitutional and statutory power should not constitute the actus reus of a crime. Otherwise the crime would place the defendant's thoughts on trial, rather than his actions."

That is a very good article that I think you will enjoy reading.
Donald Trump’s meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak wasn’t just “unprecedented,” it was truly “unpresidented.” No president with a functional State Department would have allowed a foreign minister and an ambassador—the one who’s already tripped up two administration officials (Mike Flynn and Jeff Sessions)—to hobnob with him in the Oval Office.
This meeting was deeply problematic on so many levels: the White House locked out U.S. press while allowing a Russian news agency in; the White House readout of the Lavrov meeting didn’t even include the fact that Kislyak was there (i.e. without Russian media photos, U.S. press wouldn’t have even known the meddling ambassador was in attendance.)
Something about Tillerson’s extensive Russian rolodex, the purge at State, and the Lavrov/Kislyak Oval Office visit this week feels very suspect, if he were using that power to protect our national security interests along with the international reputation of the U.S., Russian operatives would never have been allowed to infiltrate the Oval Office. - http://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/5/12 … h-for-once
Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Nebraska, said that the U.S. is "in the midst of a civilization-warping crisis of public trust," when asked about James Comey's firing.
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Russia likely sees President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey as "another victory on the scoreboard for them."
Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper says the United States' political institutions are currently "under assault" both externally and internally, in the wake of President Donald Trump's firing of ex-FBI Director James Comey.

Will they respect her? Willingly work with her? Even want to get up and go to work every morning? Well…????? Did Trump feel a little henpecked in the debate?
