    It occurred to me this morning that the old saying "you sow what you reap" is applicable to Trump.  He helped with that drip, drip, drip of stolen emails against his political opponent Clinton, as turned into a gush, gush, gush of damning legal evidence of Trump doing it again.

    Consider that Articles of Impeachment likely to come out of this:

    Article 1: Obstruction of Congress - Slam Dunk if the article includes all of the instances of Trump denying Congress their legally issued subpoenas

    Articles 2 - 6: Obstruction of Justice - Slam Dunk for each of the 5 out of 10 instances from the Mueller report.

    Article 7:  Abuse of Power - Slam Dunk for using the color of office to get a foreign leader to do something that personally helps Trump

    Articles 8 -12:  High Crime and Misdemeanor (Extortion) - Possible for each combination (aid and office meeting with investigating the Bidens and the 2016 election myth) of using the color of office in threatening to withhold something of value in return for a personal favor

    Articles 13 - 14: Bribery - Possible because Trump solicited "a thing of value", the investigations, to help with Trump's 2020 election campaign.

    Article 15: Violation of Constitution's Emoluments Clause - maybe from Trump obviously profiting off of the horde of foreign gov'ts using his properties to curry favor.

    Article 16: Treason: - doubtful but hopeful because of Trump's multiple actions which aid and abet a nation in active campaign, past and present, in cyberwar against America.

        It will be interesting to find out how many articles will be charged against Donnie. I think there may be some we haven't considered yet. The Emolument Clause may come into play, as well as, Trump giving special treatment to Jarrod and Ivanka re the intel clearances.

        And then there is his crooked Trump foundation where he settled (after lying that he wouldn't do so) for $2 million in restitution and admitting that he, Trump Org, and his kids are all guilty of what amounts to fraud.

        Please don't forget a similar story with Trump University - another Donald Trump scam.

          He told another mess O lies today when he said he'd love to have Mulvaney and others testify before the committees. I also love how he said written answers by the Whistleblower would be unacceptable. I wish some of the reporters would remind his dumb ass he thought they were fine when Mueller allowed it.

            Did he really?!  What an idiot.  Now the traitor wants to go to a parade with Putin in Russia.

              He's going to the LSU/Bama game today in hopes he'll be cheered instead of booed like the last two sports event he attended.

      Personally, I think they ought to be:

      Article 1: Obstruction of Congress - composed of all of the times Trump refused to obey a lawful supoena

      Articles 2 through 6: Obstruction of Justice from the Mueller Report, the five strongest cases.

      Article 7: Obstruction of Justice from the Ukraine investigation for not turning over all of the material requested by Congress with a lawful subpoena

      Article 8: Bribery - for holding up aid until Zelenskyy says he will investigate the Bidens and the fake Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election.

      Article 9:  Abuse of Power - for orchestrating the smear campaign against Ambassador Yovanovitich.

      Article 10: Treason - for giving aid and comfort to an enemy who is attacking America, Russia.

      Article 11: Abuse of Power - for violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution

      Article 12: Abuse of Power - for illegally holding up aid to Ukraine in violation of the Impoundment Control Act of 1974.
