5 Presidents had never been elected to public office before becoming President: Zachary Taylor, Ulysses S. Grant, Herbert Hoover, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Donald Trump. Hoover had formerly served as Secretary of Commerce, an appointed office. Taylor, Grant and Eisenhower had never held political office prior to their presidencies, but they had served as leading American generals in the Mexican-American War, American Civil War and World War Two, respectively.
Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final proof -- the smoking gun -- that could come in the form of a mushroom cloud. (George W. Bush, October 7, 2002)
No terrorist state poses a greater or more immediate threat to the security of our people and the stability of the world than the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. (Donald Rumsfeld, testimony to Congress, Sept. 19, 2002)

It remains lost on you that the impeachment talks have nothing to do with installing Hillary Clinton as the President.
Some folks should take their own advice.

As we all know we have people like this guy Calling for Trumps Impeachment:
I say bring it on. And here's why:
In America you are Innocent until PROVEN GUILTY.
Impeachment doesn't mean Removal.
They will have to go and actually NAME witnesses/LEAKERS to come and testify under Oath.
They will have to Declassify "Evidence" that supposedly exists that people like Comey, Clapper, Learner, and Rogers supposedly "Couldn't talk about Publicly because its Classified". And reveal to the American people the treasonous things that Trump Supposedly did to deny Hillary the chance to become Queen.
Even if by some miracle the Swamp does remove Trump Pence will become President. And the GOP will still be in Control of all 3 Branches of Government. Hillary will never be President and the Democrats still will be the Obstructionists.
It will prove that the Russians were never a threat to our Democracy it will be the Media and DNC who actively plotted a Coup attempt to remove a President who was Legally Elected.
They will have to PROVE Trump Obstructed Justice.
It will prove both main stream parties Presidential candidates are guilty of FELONIES. But as of now we only have 1 mainstream candidate guilty of multiple Felonies. And just to remind everyone what those Felonies are lets Review why Hillary blames Comey before Russia. After all Comey took on the role of Judge, Jury, and Prosecutor all the same time.
F.B.I. Director James Comey Recommends No Charges for Hillary Clinton on Email
Of 30,000 emails Mrs. Clinton handed over to the State Department, 110 contained information that was classified at the time she sent or received them. Of those, Mr. Comey said, “a very small number” bore markings that identified them as classified. This finding is at odds with Mrs. Clinton’s repeated assertions that none of the emails were classified at the time she sent or received them. The F.B.I. did not disclose the topics of the classified emails, but a number of the 110 are believed to have involved drone strikes.
■ The F.B.I. discovered “several thousand” work-related emails that were not in the original trove of 30,000 turned over by Mrs. Clinton to the State Department. Three of those contained information that agencies have concluded was classified, though Mr. Comey said he did not believe Mrs. Clinton deliberately deleted or withheld them from investigators.
■ In saying that it was “possible” that hostile foreign governments had gained access to Mrs. Clinton’s personal account, Mr. Comey noted that she used her mobile device extensively while traveling outside the United States, including trips “in the territory of sophisticated adversaries.”
■ Mrs. Clinton used multiple private servers for her personal and government business, not just a single server at her home in New York that has been the focus of media reporting for more than a year. Her use of these servers — some of which were taken out of service and stored — made the F.B.I.’s job enormously complicated as it struggled to put together, in Mr. Comey’s words, a jigsaw puzzle with “millions of email fragments” in it.

Nobody in the conspiracy threads believes the Warren Commission on JFK, the 9/11 commission but they cannot wait for the fake news commission to brand Trump with a Russian stamp?
This is hysterical nonsense with a heavy dose of idiocy. Trump will never get impeached unless the Dems somehow regain Congress before his eight years are up.
All his promises of helping this country still aren't happening.
