    I think he has stated he would be OK with Democrats if they thought just like Republicans, so every election would be like a Republican Primary, with just minor disagreements on process.

    Neither answer would make any sense, since the Paula Jones case was a civil case and not a criminal one.

    No but if we can prove in court a president is a criminal we should not have to rely on a political solution to the problem.

    You cannot bring a sitting president into court on criminal charges.

    The question is, are presidents above the law? It seems that Bill Clinton was.

    That sir is a LIE. That's right, your post is bullshit. It is a lie spoken to state my opinion. It shows the ignorance from which you post. I have never advocated that there would be only one party. I am sorry that you were unable to understand that but then again, you are a liberal, why should I expect more from you?

    Yes, that is true. There were 10 Republicans out of 55 that did not vote to remove him from office. However, every single Democrat voted to keep him in office. Now the shoe is on the other foot. There is NO hope for the Democrats to get a 2/3rds majority prior to January 20, 2021. Therefore, don't be even slightly surprised that any attempt to impeach President Trump fails, even if your party of bed wetting liberals gets control of the House. It will be yet one more #Fail for the Democrats.

    There is no verdict of guilty or not guilty in a civil case. Duh! Talk about an ignorant post.

    Define "our laws" I'd say. If I understand it right the law says a president can be sued for his private acts but at the same time they have immunity for their official acts Imo if that is true it makes for an interesting conversation about where some acts fit in. If a President on his own tried to obstruct justice for instance, where would that fall? (cough)

    Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstructing of justice for lying about an affair. If Trump were impeached or charged with something far more serious than an affair I would not bet that it would be civil.

    It may get very interesting.
