    Do a LexisNexis search, and you’ll find that “Trump” and some variant of “impeach” have already appeared in 37 newspaper headlines. (Duplicates are at play, yes, but let’s not get in the way of a striking statistic . ) Documentarian Michael Moore has vowed to look for the first impeachment opportunity and do what he can to help spur it along. Law professor Christopher Lewis Peterson of the University of Utah has written a paper arguing that Donald Trump can technically be impeached immediately, provided that Trump University is judged to be as fraudulent as it looks. Allan Lichtman, the...

    Americans unhappy with the election of Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States searched Google on Wednesday for guidance on how to impeach a president while a law professor indicated there may already be enough evidence to justify impeaching Trump for fraud and racketeering. Democrat Hillary Clinton called on her supporters to come together and help heal the divisions that erupted during the presidential campaign, saying now is the time to unite. Metro reported searches for “how to impeach a president” increased 4,850 percent just hours after Clinton conceded. Google Trends data indicated the top five states...

    If Hillary Clinton wins the election Tuesday, a prominent Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee says there will be an immediate move to impeach her before she can even be sworn into office Jan. 20. Rep.

    With all the twists and turns this presidential race has seen, nothing compares to the political bombshell that went off last Friday. In a letter to Congress, FBI Director James Comey announced that the Bureau had re-opened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.The decision came after emails possibly pertinent to the investigation were found on a computer belonging to former N.Y. Congressman Anthony Weiner. Weiner’s estranged wife, Huma Abedin, is a close Clinton advisor.The investigation of Weiner’s laptop stemmed from his alleged exchange of sexually explicit text messages with a 15-year-old girl.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi denounced Republican chatter about impeaching Hillary Clinton as "a brazen attempt" to defy the results of the presidential election. "In addition to there being no grounds for impeachment to begin with, moving to impeach President Hillary Clinton for alleged activities from before the election would be a brazen attempt to nullify the vote of the American people, outside our constitutional framework and destructive to the Framers' intent," the California Democrat said in a Thursday statement.

Commissioner John Koskinen explained that "failure to enroll evinces a lack of cooperation with a policy that the government has determined is necessary. Non-compliers may feel that enrollment is optional. It is not. That's why there is a fine. Paying the fine doesn't get them off the hook." Koskinen pointed out that "not only does the amount of the fine ratchet up each year, our Agency has other tools...

    The chief of the IRS fended off Republican demands Wednesday that he should lose his job, telling the House Judiciary Committee that he'd made statements about missing emails that later proved wrong but had done nothing to merit impeachment. At a four-and-one-half hour hearing on whether to oust him, John Koskinen repeatedly said he'd cooperated fully with congressional investigators probing why his agency — before he joined it — subjected tea party groups seeking tax exemptions to excessive scrutiny. Conservatives leading a campaign-year effort to remove him said Koskinen has headed an agency that destroyed emails investigators wanted and he...

    House Republicans reached an agreement late Wednesday to avoid a potentially divisive floor vote on impeaching IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. The deal scraps the vote on the so-called "privileged" impeachment resolution that had been expected to take place Thursday. Instead, the House Judiciary Committee will consider Koskinen's impeachment, with the IRS boss expected to testify sometime next week. The agreement makes it unlikely that any vote by the full House to impeach Koskinen will happen until after the November election, if at all. House Republican leadership had balked on moving forward on impeachment proceedings during an election season, arguing that...

    BRASILIA — Brazil’s Senate ousted Dilma Rousseff as president Wednesday, voting overwhelmingly to impeach the leftist leader in the culmination of a protracted process that has divided the country. The vote to impeach Rousseff was 61 to 20. Two-thirds of senators — 54 out of 81 — were needed for impeachment to pass. Senators broke into cheering and applause after the electronic voting was announced and sang the national anthem, concluding a process that was given the go-ahead in December. But a second vote to strip Rousseff of her political rights for eight years fell well short of the required...

Last week, Donald Trump asserted that Hillary Clinton and Obama “founded ISIS.” Trump didn’t literally mean they sat down and discussed how to create this group from scratch–or did he?

    A defiant Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Monday that he again restored the voting rights of about 13,000 felons who served their time after his previous attempt was thwarted by Republican lawmakers and the state Supreme Court. Virginia's highest court ruled in July that governors cannot restore rights en masse, but must consider each offender on a case-by-case basis. That ruling invalidated a sweeping executive order issued by McAuliffe in April that had given back the voting rights of more than 200,000 felons who completed their sentences. McAuliffe blasted the court Monday for ignoring the "the clear text of the...

    " By his own account, President Obama engaged in the complex cash transfer in order to end-run sanctions that prohibit the U.S. from having “a banking relationship with Iran.” The point of the sanctions is not to prevent banking with Iran; it is to prevent Iran from getting value from or through our financial system — the banking prohibition is a corollary. And the point of sanctions, if you happen to be the president of the United States sworn to execute the laws faithfully, is to follow them — not pat yourself on the back for keeping them in place...

    Republican lawmakers in Kansas, weary of conflicts with a judiciary that has been pushing for more school spending, are beginning to act on a measure to expand the legal grounds for impeaching judges. The move is part of an intensified effort in red states to reshape courts still dominated by moderate judges from earlier administrations. A committee in the GOP-controlled Senate plans to vote Tuesday on a bill that would make “attempting to usurp the power” of the Legislature or the executive branch grounds for impeachment. …

    When Republican businessman Matt Bevin ran for governor of Kentucky, he promised to make a number of budget cuts in order to help fix the commonwealth's budget and salvage the huge deficit in the state's pension plan. He also promised to change marriage licenses issued by county clerks and to end the commonwealth's healthcare exchange program.The heart of Kentucky's Democratic political fortresses in Lexington and Louisville didn't think Bevin stood a chance on beating out their candidate, Jack Conway, then Kentucky Attorney General. Since 1947, only 2 Republicans have won the governor's mansion in this good old boy state prior...

    American Thinker ^ | February 8, 2016 | Russ Vaughn
    Brit Hume, speaking on FOX News, noted that Bill Clinton is now an elderly man - a thought that I'll wager has been going through many American minds since last Monday night, when Hillary gave her post-caucus acceptance...er, victory speech in Iowa. [Snip] The visage that Bill wore for much of that harangue was truly revealing - more like something you'd see in a nursing home day room than on a presidential campaign stage. His head drooped, and his mouth frequently gaped open in what almost appeared to be a slack-eyed but leering old geezer smile directed towards his partner's...

    'I am so happy that my husband could be here with me,' Clinton says at Iowa rally where she's joined by Bill - and says it is 'perversely flattering' that Republicans are obsessed with tanking her candidacy Hillary and Bill Clinton joined forces in Iowa tonight for the first time since she began deploying him to campaign for her this year 'He knows a little bit about this job I'm competing for, and he will be, if I am so fortunate to become your next president, he'll be a really good adviser' Of the GOP's attack ads on her, Clinton...

    Bill Clinton came to the vote-rich city of Mason City on Wednesday night and recounted his wife's life experiences, recited her policy ideas, and ripped into the Republicans a bit. But what Mr. Clinton used to do so well -- and what Hillary Clinton needs, only days before the Iowa caucuses on Monday -- was nowhere to be found: a polished, piercing critique of an opponent, in this case Bernie Sanders. At an event in Las Vegas last week, Mr. Clinton, 69, looked smaller and his voice seemed weaker than in past campaigns, and people had to strain to hear...
