    Not really. Republicans have impeached two (Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton). Democrats have impeached only one.

      And I bet in the next question you'll be the first to claim the parties switched sides.

    What they are working up to is for The House to appoint the POTUS.

    Why bother asking all those people when you know the right answer anyway?

    Hopefully.  If you violate your oath of office then you'll be impeached, no matter how politically inconvenient it is for Congress.

    At least some politicians and government officials take their oaths seriously and care about the country.

    The Democrats have certainly trivialized impeachment with this stunt. What azzholes.

      No, the azzholes that investigated a President for 6 years then impeached him for lying about a bl*wjob did that. At least it's not that trivial.

    When they refused to go to the court to get the people to testify and then run to impeach yes.

      You think they should have impeached him for trying to cheat the next election after the next election?  Wouldn't that set the precedent that obstruction works?

    No, if we survive this Republican administration I hope and pray, that there will ever be another mentally unstable, lying narcissistic sociopath with a  low IQ,  Communist Republican president, appointed by Putin ever again.  

    We thought Bush/Cheney was corrupt, but this administration makes the Capone gang look like naughty schoolboys. They are doctoring,  documents, shredding documents and blocking eye witness testimony. They have a lot to hide.

    No. They have set in motion a civil war, How soon it will begin in earnest is yet to be determined.  A point of no return has already passed.

      Conservatives aren't violent remember.  They believe in the rule of law.

    No, the Republicans are setting up a precedent for a full banana republic.

    Your argument is that the president is above the law. 

    If this wasn't so goddamn awful, it would be hilarious.

    Yep essentially what they're saying is if the opposing party controls the House with a simple majority then it's normal for them to impeach the President simply because they don't agree with him. It's a dangerous precedent and one that will hurt our Republic

      No, I wouldn't. I support Biden threatening to withhold aid, with the full bipartisan backing of Congress, as opposed to behind their back, because they're (the Ukraine) not actively or effectively prosecuting corruption. I support that.

    No. Republicans are setting precedent for presidents not being held accountable for abuse of the power of the office.
