Vindictive Misuse Of Impeachment - And Response

Friday, January 22, 2021
Enough is enough already.  Americans on both sides are just plain sick of these parasites in Washington (on both sides) not just doing the peoples business, only looking for new ways to attack each other day in and day out.
 
Article 2 Section 4 of our U.S. Constitution specifically says: "The President, Vice President, and civil officers of The United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for a conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." News Flash.
Donald J Trump is now living in Florida as a private citizen. He is no longer The President.  Law professors and Constitutional experts Alan Dersowitz and Jonathan Turley (both Democrats), and many others without a political agenda have said categorically that impeachment is for a sitting president, not private citizens. Will anyone quote me anywhere in our U.S. Constitution, Amendments, or private writings by any of our founders where they suggest that this provision in any fashion can be used against a President (a President mind you) after they have left office.
 
In my 59 years as an educated voter, and student of politics, I have never witnessed such obsessive hatred for a President by so many unhinged people.  Washington seems hell bent on destroying the greatest democracy the world has ever known.  They give new meaning to the phrase "mutually assured destruction".  If you don't believe me, just wait until the obsessed Trump haters spew their vile retorts to my comments without once actually addressing the facts and words of our founding document relating to how and when a President can be removed from office.
 
I have had it with turning on the news every day and having to put up with the childish bickering from overpaid politicians and biased individuals.  That goes for the RINOs in my party as well.  As I said, I have been a lifelong voter and Republican party contributor for years, but enough is enough. Since as a Christian that supports Life and traditional Biblical morality, I could never be a Democrat, the only thing left for me is to leave my party and register as an Independent.

Mr. Reesor is exactly right. The so-called progressives are pulling back the curtain to reveal what tyrants they are and how far they will go.

Okay, Ms. Pelosi, if you can impeach a former president, then I demand you impeach LBJ. He lied to the nation about the Gulf of Tonkin incident which gave him the war powers to do what he did in Viet Nam. Nearly 100,000 Americans died as a direct result of that disaster. Our nation is still dealing with the harm LBJ did. How’s that for a president causing violence and destruction, Nancy? And he was a Democrat.

And what’s to stop this gang from impeaching Dick Cheney? They hatred him almost as deeply as they do Trump. Perhaps his daughter’s vote for impeachment will come back to bite her-then maybe it won’t. Having a high profile Republican vote for impeaching Trump gave their scheme some traction.

For that matter if your scrapping the constitution to try to destroy Trump, what’s to stop them from going after any senator, federal judge or justice or member of Congress that gets in the way of their New Order?
