Isn't it time for organized protest marches on D.C. demanding that Trump resign?  Look what effect relentless demonstrations had in South Korea and other countries when the leadership proved to be corrupt and inept.

Yeah, and people freaked out when McCain voted "No" on the healthcare repeal. Imagine the reaction if Pence voted for conviction.

Heads would explode!  That would be a sight!  He wants to be president so bad he can taste it yet still praises Trump to the skies.  If it came down to a tie, I think Pence would vote Trump out.  He knows, because he's seen it as we all have, that Trump is loyal to no one.

Yes,  the Senators decide and since the majority are Republicans,  Nip can't complain that they would vote to convict unless there were serious criminal charges.    

 

I do wonder what happens if there is a tie.     Does the V.P get a vote in a situations like this?   Typically yes, but here it would be a conflict of interest.

 

But while I don't want Pence as President,  it would be funny to see Pence break a tie by voting to convict Trump!

If Trump is removed from office for breaking the law, the judge and jury would be Americas' senators. That's constitutional and that's the way the Democracy works.

if trump were actually removed from office, it would criminalize political discourse.

it would be like impeaching teddy roosevelt because some people found "Bully! Bully!" too crude.

NipkowDisc--ROT!

 

1. The phrase which Theodore Roosevelt coined is "bully pulpit", which meant being in a public, prominent position (such as the Presidency) that gave people an opportunity to speak out and be listened to.  The phrase "Bully Bully" dates from the 1800s and meant "good job",  or agreement with the speaker.

 

2.  A Grand Jury has been impanelled on the Russian probe.  This DOES mean that a CRIMINAL, not counterintelligence probe is going on.  It is VERY LIKELY that evidence of a crime(s) has been found, and subpoenas will be issued.  The process continues.  It has NOTHING to do with civil political discourse/disagreements in the House or Senate, or civil disagreements on this message board!

 

If Trump is removed from office, it will be for something major; if his Tweets were impeachable offenses, he'd already be history, and President Pence would be the object of discussion.

Bogie56, you doan know that trump meant anything he said to putin. you're all saying what a big liar donny is so why should he create unnecessary bad blood with vladimir?

just lie to the guy. it makes for a more affable friendship. :D

So that explains it. Donny has been lying to his Deplorables, in tweets and speeches, and that makes for a more affable relationship.

Trump's poll numbers would really tank if he told them the truth. Got it!

Diplomacy often requires a degree of dishonesty when dealing with an adversary.   Often transparency is the wrong course of action.    Foreign relations with adversaries is like poker;   don't let them know what your holding,   bluff,   etc...   

 

The above has nothing to do with Trump but just the nature of how to deal with adverse foreign nations.

 

As for Trump dealing with Putin;  Trump has been way to open with Putin,  putting his own interest ahead of the nations, by providing Putin with inside info and promises.      

"Diplomacy often requires a degree of dishonesty"  I couldn't disagree more but there you are.

So your diplomacy contains fundamental dishonesty does it.  You don't think it would be better to be straight up?  That would take some spine, of course.  We all know bullies do not have spines when it comes right down to it.

So how do Trump's 3 main supporters here view his idea of inviting the Russians to help with the U.S. cyber security for the upcoming elections?  Good idea?  Dumb idea?  Is your emperor capable of a dumb idea?

I would propose that he is either far too stupid to be president or he is a puppet of a foreign government - or both of course.

whatz to make up?
 
trump knows exactly who's side our news media was on back in the campaign. he himself called them a pack of liars.
 
why should he legitimize their lack of journalistic objectivity and integrity?
 
he will not! he will in fact lay it down like it is.
 
donny trump will remain strong, sure and in power.
 
sometimes the strong leader will speak force to evil trumps all them inconvenient legalistic complexities.
