Let's get this party started early.


List your reasons why you think whoever wins the election should be immediately impeached starting on Nov 9. We need these by Jan 22 so there is a time frame here people.


All these months of suspense.

According to ATS, both candidates are equally impeachable. And as a bonus, you can not be pardoned from impeachment!

It is a win win for everybody!!!!

Hillary - impeached for mishandling of classified information.
Trump - impeached for talking about grabbing vaginas.

for using the first amendment.

Talking about grabbing vaginas is speech, physically doing it, is not.

I weep for high school Civics.

Impeachment is a process by which an official can be removed from office for high crimes and misdemeanors committed while actually in office.

But it would be fun to watch the morons in the House of Representatives try to impeach a president-elect before they are even sworn in, for things they supposedly said or did prior to being elected.

On second thought, scratch that. It would be a national embarrassment because that isn't even remotely how impeachment works.

That's funny... do you know that Hillary can be impeached for her actions while Secretary of State, even after leaving office, which would prevent her from holding future public office?

Remember Belknap......... impeachment proceedings after leaving office... his main defense,,, he couldn't be impeached because he was no longer in office.


Starting on April 5, 1876, Belknap was tried by the Senate, presided over by Supreme Court Chief Justice Morrison Waite. For several weeks Senators argued whether the Senate had jurisdiction to put Belknap on trial since he already resigned office in March.[72] Belknap's defense managers argued that the Senate had no jurisdiction to put Belknap on trial.[72] The Senate, however, had ruled by a vote of 37-29 that it had jurisdiction to impeach Belknap, despite his resignation in March.


So it looks like Hillary is the only candidate that can be impeached prior to Jan 22, 2017.

I say there is more than enough ample evidence for Hillary to be retroactively impeached for the mishandling of classified information and the precedent has already been established by the Senate in 1876.

Actually, she would also need to be convicted by 2/3 of the Senate before she could be prevented from holding office. In other words, it ain't happening.

Really? So you are saying that Willam Belknap was not impeached by the Senate after leaving office as Secretary of Defense?

Are you saying that Hillary committed no impeachable offenses while SoS?

You're right.. your civics teacher is shedding a tear for you right now.

STOP THIS MADNESS!!! The purpose of government is to keep the country running smoothly, not retaliating against your political opponents. Congress should go about serving the public by approving a Supreme Court Justice, overhauling the tax code, reviewing overseas bases that need to be closed, dropping the China Exclusion law so that NASA can cooperate with China and American aerospace firms compete with Russia for that market, repeal the Patriot Act... need I go on? Please don't let Congress get off the hook by wasting time and taxpayer money on another partisan witch hunt!

An impeachment of Hillary Clinton for mishandling of classified information would not be a partisan witch hunt as you like to call it.


It would be called Justice.


Now if you would like to debate whether she can be impeached for actions while as Secretary of State after leaving office, then go for it.

Yes, I am absolutely saying that. This isn't the 1850's, and you don't have 2/3's of the senate. After tonight, you won't even have a simple majority. Keep digging.

Only if every other government official were also investigated, and all of the ones who did the same thing as Clinton also indicted. Otherwise, it is just a partisan witch hunt,

"Yes, I am absolutely saying that. This isn't the 1850's."

And you say the the precedent set by Congress in 1876 is invalid? You are arguing with a well known fact?

Go out on that limb man.... just say the Hillary Clinton can not be impeached for her actions while secretary of state. Quit trying to use the excuse of they wouldn't have the votes for a conviction as a valid reason why it can't happen.

Impeachment is a political process. You are counting the votes in the senate before the process has ever started.

As a matter of fact, you have already counted the votes prior to midnight tonight and already declared Hillary and the Democrats as the victors.

Strange how you know the vote totals ahead of time, especially considering neither myself or my wife has voted yet.

Which precedent? The one set by 25 senators when they voted to acquit because they specifically agreed that the senate did not have jurisdiction.

On second thought, continue. It's a fairly entertaining notion.

I too, enjoy fantasy role-playing games.
