They’re Already Gearing Up To Impeach Trump

(RINF) – A personal note. My comments below reflect a commitment to rule of law principles, not support or rejection of Trump as America’s 45th president. Judge him based on how he serves once in office, no other way.

Deplorable treatment he got while campaigning and continuing post-election as president-elect is unprecedented in US political history – one of many examples of a rogue state off-the-rails, bipartisan corruption too entrenched to fix.

Change.org is part of an outrageous campaign to impeach Trump straightaway once inaugurated. A previous article explained it’s a for-profit enterprise, not an NGO – deceiving supporters by using the .org domain suffix, not .com as it should.

Its business is getting people to sign petitions, along with selling advertising and personal data for added profits.

Its campaign to make war goddess, racketeer, perjurer Hillary president by getting enough GOP electors to vote for her on December 19 fizzled.

It’s at it again, petitioning to get Trump impeached “immediate(ly)” on entering office, “removing all opportunity for his control of the executive branch of our government” – even though no impeachable justification exists.

How could it. Trump has no public record and hasn’t yet entered office. At this stage, it’s unclear if he’ll serve well or poorly, according to constitutional law or in breach of it, a president for all Americans or one for its privileged few alone like all his predecessors in the republic’s history since George Washington.

Jack Kennedy came closest to fulfilling the obligations of a US leader honorably and equitably. His integrity cost him his life.

The Constitution’s Article I, Section 2 empowers House members to impeach a sitting president, Senate members with sole power to try them.

Article II, Section 4 states “(t)he President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Views on any issues aren’t impeachable offenses, no matter how extreme or different from most others in government – only criminal acts too severe to ignore, open to interpretation, given how egregiously America operates at home and abroad with bipartisan support.

On New Year’s day, journalist Robert Kuttner sounded like a sedition-supporting Hillary press agent – urging Trump’s impeachment, saying “(t)he process begins now.”

Calling him “wildly unfit to be president,” Kuttne said he’ll reveal it by violating constitutional law. He may or may not, but hasn’t because he’s yet to be inaugurated.

Kuttner called for “a citizens’ impeachment inquiry, to begin on Trump’s first day in office” composed of “distinguished,” high-minded members, according to whom he didn’t say, claiming they’ll “be no lack of evidence.”

As of now, there’s none, maybe none ahead. Who can know. Judging politicians on rhetoric alone is reckless, foolhardy and irresponsible. Judge them solely on their actions in office.

Kuttner turned truth on its head, claiming Trump “already committed grave misdeeds of the kind the Constitutional founder described as high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Examples he gave would be thrown out of any legitimate tribunal straightaway. The most egregious was accusing Trump of “dalliance with Vladimir Putin…skirting treason” by wanting better bilateral relations, including cooperating in combating terrorism – hardly an impeachable offense.

Kuttner is disgracefully stumping for Hillary, long after she lost, no longer a threat to humanity, something to give thanks for in the new year, not wish it wasn’t so.

He shamefully accused Russia of hacking America’s election, despite no evidence suggesting it by any nation or party – Democrat insider leaks only, disgruntled over Hillary’s nomination theft.

DNC election rigging failed to defeat Trump. Humanity breathed a sigh of relief with the outcome. Kuttner and others like him want revenge, blustering:

“There is no way to contain him other than removing him from office, before the damage to our democracy is irrevocable. The process of building the impeachment case needs to begin now.”

America is more hypocrisy and plutocracy than democracy, a fantasy notion from the republic’s inception.

On January 20, Trump will be sworn in as the nation’s 45th president. He deserves the right to serve in the position he legitimately won.

Efforts to deprive him by coup d’etat vindictiveness would make America more of a lawless state than already.

If Trump commits impeachable offenses in office, accountability should follow – not before he’s done anything to warrant removal, the way banana republics are run.

    The difference between liberals and conservatives is that liberals start stupid movements and conservatives finish them. Ready, fire, aim…

  • yep

    ha, ha, good luck, if this does happen, which i doubt, you have many trumo supporters who have guns, and if these liberals want to screw with this, watch out liberals, we will come and get you…period

    It appears that the massive corruption is so deeply entrenched in today’s America that a man that declares to work FOR THE PEOPLE simply cannot be tolerated.
    If Trump does his job for the people and something happens to him physically or politically, it is then time to abolish the system in favor of a new system that makes illegal ANY form of corruption under the penalty of DEATH!

      This is about hatred for democracy. Rothschild (through the agent Soros) wants absolute control so that they can install their New World Odor. Trump (apparently) threw a monkey wrench in the works and they’re having a seizure.

      It could also be that its all planned. I simply don’t know. Whatever the case, it isn’t hard to see that the “will of the people” is not important to them. Neither is respect, dignity or grace. It is absolutely shameful.

      There are many “Third World” countries that show greater dignity than these scum currently do.

  • Peotus Trump

    Everyone needs to get over Trump being president is a fact. Get over it! By the way they need to have the majority in the house and guess what they don’t. That is a fact!

    • Joseph Conrad

      Deplorable legal and investigative minds must find the firm and have its
      executive team indicted & TRIED FOR TREASON.

  • Marschall Clark

    America has become the poster child for the new Stalinism. 50 years of educating university students how to destroy a society the “Max Horchiemer” way has reached its peak.

  • Lophatt

    I hope he’s taking this seriously and has a plan. If he doesn’t they will eat his lunch. Not because they’re smarter, just because they will never quit unless they’re afraid of him. He had better find a way to make them afraid.

    I ancient times, this would be seen as His man hood test, to see, if this is an king worthy to follow or have any faith in.

    The enemy’s is in the open, the MSM is making this to be, pimping this shit, and somehow, what bugs me, is the inability to realize the seriousness in this, an cup coming, and despite their openness about treason to an elected president, is mind boggling.
    And then again since we are dealing with morons, let them come into the light, and have patience, its an virtue, and patience, is to wait, with forbearance, upon the Timing, witch in hunting/war is essential.
    An Gentleman never runs.

    Otherwise, the freak show obviously will continue, with new and improved lies and fake-rings, all to undermine the election, I find it fascinating that the law is so dead.

    Something ugly is coming, I can almost smell it.

    peace

    If anybody deserves impeachment it is the phony, many-named mystery man, Homosexual, crack-smokin’ former drug-dealer with a Tranny “Wife”, Obama/Soetoro or whoever he is. I am ending my gmail account with this organization, they no longer have any credibility.

    One more effin’ time, you pinheads!
