Oh dear lord for the love of everything sacred please oh please hold it together and keep your twitter fingers under control Donnie. If he gets himself thrown out of office then we will be stuck with that monster Pence with a stacked deck in favor of conservatives and that is truly a terrifying scenario. I've never rooted for you until now oh orange one but go Donnie go!!

Classic example of conflict of interest. Do you defend your reputation or do you defend a former colleague? Tough choice.

Someone teach this professor impeachment doesn't mean removal. Two presidents have been impeached. None have ever been removed.

Too bad Trump was only reporting things that were already reported by the media.

So no grounds for impeachment on that basis.

Try again, professor!

There is no evidence.


True...there is no solid, definitive evidence out to the public at this moment.
But you would have to be stupid not to see that something is known behind the closed Oval Office doors.
Too many stories about smoke, not to have any fire.
It's called denial...I know it will be hard for you to see your King Obama possibly sitting in the Federal Pen somewhere but to say that there is NO evidence, is just fantasy on your part right now.



The stories currently are three-fold: first, that Obama’s team tried to get a warrant from a regular, Article III federal court on Trump, and was told no by someone along the way (maybe the FBI), as the evidence was that weak or non-existent; second, Obama’s team then tried to circumvent the federal judiciary’s independent role by trying to mislabel the issue one of “foreign agents,” and tried to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act “courts”, and were again turned down, when the court saw Trump named (an extremely rare act of FISA court refusal of the government, suggesting the evidence was truly non-existent against Trump); and so, third, Obama circumvented both the regular command of the FBI and the regularly appointed federal courts, by placing the entire case as a FISA case (and apparently under Sally Yates at DOJ) as a “foreign” case, and then omitted Trump’s name from a surveillance warrant submitted to the FISA court, which the FISA court unwittingly granted, which Obama then misused to spy on Trump and many connected to Trump. Are these allegations true? We don’t know yet, but if any part of them are then Obama and/or his officials could face serious trouble.

lawnewz.com...




“President Trump is on to something. The Obama-connected wiretapping and illegal leaks of classified material concerning President Trump and General Flynn are a scandal,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Judicial Watch aims to get to the truth about these crimes and we hope the Trump administration stands with us in the fight for transparency.”

www.zerohedge.com...





The WikiLeaks whistleblowing website believes that the possible wiretapping on US President Donald Trump during last year’s presidential campaign by his predecessor Barack Obama may be true as the WikiLeaks's staff has allegedly been spied on by the preceding administration.

Between the non stop Russian connections, Trump's hiding of his taxes, and the fact he's a loony conservative conspiracy theorist who continues to parrot conservative media on Twitter it's only a matter of time before he buries himself. Assuming Pence doesn't go down with him, I'll take Pence over Trump any day of the week.



Don't forget the only change he made to the GOP platform was that we wouldn't use military force to protect Ukraine...

His only change...

The exact same could be said about trump making a deal with Russian intelligence...


Except there both the CIA and FBI agree Russia did the hack.


So far A MONTH IN and 2 uber high administration people have been fired for Russian connections and sessions just lied about it.

The only change trump made to the GOP platform was not using force in Ukraine.

And leaks of constant communication with. The trump campaign..

The Obama stuff is one anonymous source with zero FBI or CIA backing.

Obama already ruled out military action in Ukraine. It was not done by Trump.

You can't "impeach" a president for being correct.


Looking at the several clueless posters above you, thats precisely what they're hoping for.

In their twisted ''hate trump no matter what'' world.... Trump should be impeached for all the illegal activities that he's exposing from the previous government

CIA and FBI never concluded Russia hacked John Podesta. A confidence assessment is not conclusive. They'll need a lot of evidence to make a conclude it was Russia. Short of capturing people who confess, it is impossible to make such a conclusion.

Oh god, so desperate

The highest chances are of democrats going to prison for selling out the US and being in cahoots with foreign globalist governments

So much more likely than Trump being impeached for truthful tweets

I honestly cannot say why the CIA and FBI agree it was Russia, just that they both do.


The most interesting part is why would trumps campaign be having secret meetings with Russian officials when the big news story is that Russia is helping trump to swing the election?!?!


Wouldn't you avoid any appearance of inporpriety by avoiding them?!?!


That's like being married and going out drinking with your ex till 3am then crashing at her house when you are not sleeping with her and would never cheat on your wife.....


Why do things that look bad unless there is a benefit?

I'm talking about the GOP party platform at the RNC not the US's policy.

The dems and GOP both have totally different party platforms that state their parties intentions that they edit every convention.

Well it was originally worded that they would use military force if Russia invaded... the only change trump made was to say the GOP would only lend material help not weapons or troops..

Which I agree with, but why was that the only change???

Let Germany supply military hardware. The US does not need to do that in Europe.
