...HC&M not defined in the constitution. So it basically is whatever the House says it is.
Would the public stand for it ? probably not, but in a country that’s this divided ? 50-50 would be enough for the House to take a shot.

I agree with Cletus...and I understand what you are saying, but there is no normal anymore.And I don’t trust RATS. No honor anymore.

Look to Nixon for guidelines... cause the RATs will.
SCOTUS forced Nixon to give up documents.
Three articles of Impeachment
- obstruction of justice - (any stretch of the imagination that may come out of the Mueller report details ?)
- abuse of power - (calling for a National Emergency on the border ?)
- contempt of Congress - (anything they can think of ?)

It could go sideways quick if MSM bails on the RATs for this effort.
Bottom line ? The RATs will not stop the persecution of this President.

I understand what you are saying. However, the HC&M has become a standard. Even in your response you are using examples that would rise to the level of HC&M. Regardless, what I was pointing out is that there must be some grounds for the House to try and impeach the President.

Those grounds may be entirely fictional and whether true or false will be determined by the Senate. I also think if the case brought forward is totally frivolous, it can be rejected outright. I’m not as certain about that one, but the House trying to use anything like jaywalking or traffic tickets wouldn’t fly.

To: Kalam

the examples are the actual articles of impeachment for Nixon.
My parentheses info were the potential corresponding hypothetical Pres.Trump actions that could fit Nixon's articles of impeachment.
(Note - the House denied 2 other articles of impeachment for Nixon - bombing cambodia and failure to pay taxes.)
people remember the articles but not the underlying actions warranting the articles. Even Nixon's underlying actions,as defined by the articles, were sketchy and general at best.

I keep thinking I'm giving the RATs a roadmap by trying to hash this stuff out. Course, outside of a select few, who looks @ FR ? or takes us @ FR seriously ? I think I'll shut-up about this now.
