Shouldn’t matter who’s got what if he’s a proven criminal he should face the music. Hence the lady with the scales and a blindfold. Not saying he is a criminal though, just saying...

There is a lot of chatter from Democrats this weekend about filing articles of Impeachment against President Trump when they take control of the U.S. House of Congress next month.

When House Republicans filed articles of impeachment against Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein this past July, they had solid reasons for doing so.

The articles, filed late Wednesday by Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) — two top allies of President Donald Trump — blast Rosenstein for what they allege was a failure to respond to congressional document demands.

Rosenstein was not providing all the documents requested by Congressional investigative committees, even though Congress has oversight authority of the Department of Justice.

A majority of the committees filing the impeachment articles approved them, and forwarded them to the full House for a vote. House speaker Paul Ryan said there were not enough "Yes" vote to approve Rosenstein's impeachment, before forwarding them to the U.S. Senate for a vote, so he cancelled the effort.

Democratsare saying they will make Impeaching President Trump their top priority next month.

This morning, Congressman Adam Schiff even went so far as to say President Trump has a good possibility of "seeing jail time", due to the laws he has broken.

Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said earlier today (on CNN) that he's looking at changing "Statute of Limitation" laws, in order to cast a wider net for investigating Donald Trump's past potential criminal Business Deals, IRS filings, Beauty Pageant Shenanigans, etc..

WHEN House Democrats start filing Articles of Impeachment against our duly elected President, they have to state WHY they want him impeached. The legal reason can't be, "Orange Man Bad!"

What crime will they use? The Special Counsel has been looking for a crime for almost 18 months now...casting a very wide net. Yet his Witch-Hunt still has not uncovered any offenses that would rise to the level of Impeaching the President of the United States.

What do you think ATS? Even if House Democrats find, or invent, a crime committed by private citizen or President Trump, it has to be serious enough for the Republican-led Senate to approve.


Lets break this down a bit.

1. You really like saying "witch hunt" don't you. Except when quite a number of people around his inner circle are being prosecuted, found guilty etc, clearly it's not.

2. You continually assume that you know more about the investigation than the person doing the investigating. If that's the case, why didn't they just ask you? Oh yes, because like the rest of us, you don't KNOW anything for sure.

3. You moan about the length of the investigation (18 months) as though if there were crimes it would be found quicker. Why? What qualifications and experience do you have in law that makes what you think relevant? How do you know how long this should take? You don't.

So just to conclude, a totally inexperienced investigator or law person (that's you) has moaned that there is a witch hunt about a person (who they know literally zero about) even though they don't know anything officially. Unless you do have the documents and information that Mueller and his team have and know everything about what is going on?

No? So how about stop creating threads over and over again and whining about it all and stereotyping Democrats all the time. And for the record, I'm not a Democrat. I'm more interested in letting the investigation run its course as (a) stopping it now would forever tarnish Trumps presidency because it would always be connected to "what if..." which surely he wouldn't want? and (b) there seems enough in the public domain to warrant the conclusion to this whole affair otherwise you will have spent a fortune for nothing.

Absolutely he should!! But we need a bit more than what we've seen so far...actually, a whole lot more.

Orange man bad just doesn't quite cut it. That is what elections are for, not impeachment.

Adam Schiff (or is it Schitt?) just said told fellow-traitor Blister that President Trump can be Indicted now, and stand trial after he leaves office. He will push for changes that will enable this to occur.

Excerpted from:

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” incoming House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) called for the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) to reevaluate its opinion that a sitting president can’t be indicted “under circumstances in which the failure to do so may mean that person escapes justice.”

“I don’t think that the Justice Department ought to take the position — and it’s certainly not one that would be required in any way by the Constitution — that a president, merely by being in office, can be above the law, can escape the enforcement of the law, by essentially waiting out the law, by waiting out the statute of limitations.

So, there ought to be a mechanism to make sure that that is not the case, whether that means revisiting the OLC opinion that — and allowing the indictment of a sitting president and staying the prosecution, or allowing both the indictment and prosecution.”

Congressman Schiff has a lot to keep hidden, along with CNN. That's why he's eagerly invited to speak on that network at every opportunity.

I heard that articles of Impeachment were filed against President Trump by the new Democrat-led U.S. House of Representatives. Has anyone seen them? I want to know what the "Impeachable Offense" is.
