Something Worse is Coming Than Trump’s Total Contempt for the Constitution’s Impeachment Power

WatchMojo.com / YouTube Top 10 Most Ridiculous Donald Trump...

Something even more ominous lies behind Donald Trump’s declaration, yesterday, that House Impeachment proceedings are illegitimate and that the White House will ignore the sundry investigations by the various House committees.  On one hand, this is merely the most recent malfeasance by the malfeasiest President ever, but on the other hand, this Presidential usurpation has unleashed an undeniable Constitutional Crisis of historic proportions.  As bad as this is, however, it is also a clarion signal that matters will get even worse.  Because, if Donald J. Trump won’t respect the Constitutional power of Impeachment to end his Presidency, why should anyone expect him to respect the Constitutional power of the 2020 election to end his Presidency.

This is no joke, even though Comedian, Bill Maher, has been telling his audiences since 2016 that if Trump became President, we wouldn’t be able to get rid of him, even if Trump lost the next election.  As a fan, I have a decidedly love-hate relationship with Mr. Maher.  I find him, variously, entertainingly funny, politically exasperating and chillingly unfunny, if nevertheless insightful.  I’ve listened to him argue for years that defeating Trump in the 2020 election won’t be enough to end the blight of Trumpism.  The comedian makes that point often, and elaborates, here, in an appearance on CNN a few months ago —

I’ve listened to Bill Maher make this argument, on this point, on various occasions and I never really took it seriously, until yesterday.  But, after the White House letter to Congress, yesterday, utterly, completely rejecting the most fundamental Congressional oversight power, explicitly and purposefully emplaced in the Constitution, by Framers who feared tyranny above all else, Americans no longer have the option to hide from this ominous truth — If Trump loses the 2020 election, he won’t go.

Nevertheless, we must each do what we can to support the impeachment of Donald J. Trump and the electoral defeat of Donald J. Trump in 2020.  Sadly, that may only be the beginning of what we must hope does not become civil war.  Since yesterday, I’ve never been so afraid for the future of our Republic.

Unspinable facts laid out to the people, should be enough to convict and jail Trump, Pence, Barr et al.

He must be held accountable to the people of this country….not the house of senate…the citizens of this country….one thing I know…I will never, ever give one red cent to any politician even though daily I get requests!!!! House and Senate are a joke….its all about the money and profiting from the citizens….I am disgusted!!!

We must remove his power to do anything, make him a president in name only.
Work against him like they did with Obama. He is verifiably nuts. He is destroying our way of life, all for his own greed and malice. GOP too. They are all guilty of treason. They all take foreign money illegally. They all belong in jail. If we do not stop him, Russia will come in a take over.

..Anyone that know’s of Trump , knows
Trump’s a lier , cheat , thief,
and sexual predator.
…And they’re surprised he’s lasted as long as he has . Because he can’t help himself, he’s a truly compulsive lier .
…He’s so hooked on lying ,
it an automatic reflex as far as his personality
is concerned.
…One would wonder if he’s ever seen an analyst. But his personality is so ingrained
it can’t be touched ,except by a catastrophic
occurrence in his life .
..In other words it’s to late now!

Yeah didn’t get exactly what he said at rally but he did d say something about that. His 2/4/8 years crap. But the thing about trump is he is some kind of dual personality. The talking about himself in the third person. He believes his little chats with himself.

…No doubt in my mind he has multiple personality’s ..And all bad , he should have seen a talking doctor years ago. …He’s a serial (knee jerk ), lier, All those candidates that ran for the Republican Party nomination , said as much . And they all said NEVER TRUMP . …But now , —they say they love Trump , because he’s gotten them so scared, they can’t disagree with him . ..It’s a sad state of affairs because none of the Senate Republicans are worthy of being congressman. Anyone that’s not man /women enough to stand up to a… Read more »

You got that right. They need to tell the republicans to leave or face prosecution. They have to have done something wrong.
