Will Trump be impeached?
Many liberals will stop at nothing to prevent Trump from being inaugurated. They are already talking impeachment and he hasn't even begun his presidency yet! How likely is it that he will be removed from the position? And what will be the reason?
A majority of the members of the House must vote for these charges in order to impeach the president. After the charges of misconduct are filed, the Senate has the power to try impeachment cases like a court. Two-thirds of the senators must vote for conviction.
With the congress being controlled by Trump's party there is no way Trump can be impeached unless his party can be convinced that he is guilty of impeachable offenses, qualifying charges that are undeniable. I can't imagine after being elected by the country that there is anything anyone knows of that could be considered an impeachable offense, unlike Hillary who broke the law even though they chose not to prosecute (and we know the real reason why that decision was made).
Crying impeachment, the popular vote, the Russians, Trump's transition team, everything the democrats and the media are doing and saying are just desperate attempts to taint Trump in the eyes of anyone who can be duped by their myriad accusations.
Anyway impeaching Trump (there is no way Trump can be impeached and everyone who calls for it knows it) wouldn't change a single thing, His policies and/or Pence's policies would still be carried out by Republicans and the positive results would deny another liberal the presidency and congress for many years to come and that is why they are trying to delegitimatize Trump. They know what's coming and there is nothing else they can do about it. According to constitutional lawyers, high crimes and misdemeanors are: "real criminality", so breaking the law; "abuses of power"; or "violation of public trust”. The person who comes to mind when I read this is Hillary Clinton.
If Trump were impeached, convicted by the Senate, and removed from office, Vice President-elect Mike Pence would immediately take the oath of office and become president. In the highly unlikely event of Mr Trump and Mr Pence both being impeached at the same time, the presidency would fall to the Speaker of the House, Mr Ryan.
Unfortunately, many people who might want to impeach Trump would probably not prefer his running mate as president; Pence has previously said gay marriage represents the “deterioration of family” and “societal collapse”; he opposes abortion, has denied climate change, and believes there has been "too much talk of institutional bias or racism in law enforcement".
Yeah, so the Democrats are between a rock and a hard place on impeachment the way things stand today. If later it's found Trump committed “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” (gee, that sounds more like Hillarity's resume) he should be impeached, but even then that won't help the liberal cause which (you are thankfully witnessing) is in the last throws of death, at least until, like the zombies in it's ranks, it manages somehow to come back from the dead.
And in addition why should he be impeached. We couldn't even indict Hillary Clinton for obvious Gross Negligence, obstruction of justice, Benghazi etc,much less the treasonous acts of pres Obama, and Trump dn do any that is impeachablle
