    I dare you to cite the legal definitions of those terms alongside where you believe those crimes were committed.

    We need REAL liberals. And the one place we know they won't be found is the Democratic party.
    I can't help but blame the democratic party for denying the people our best or only opportunity for a new deal with Sanders as president. The possibility of lightning striking twice is slim to none, so a 3rd party is our dark horse for avoiding a bloody revolt.

    Unless of course Trump sees a new deal as his only option to avoid impeachment.

    I guess when you make stuff up as you go what you say at least makes sense to you.

    I think that's why he chose pence... something of a life insurance policy.

    Really? Why would you say that?

    While it's true that Pence is far more of a religious fanatic than Sunkist, it stands to reason that if the current occupier of the WH is removed from office (or, as is far more likely, resigns under pressure), that Pence would be such damaged goods, he'd be lucky to get a budget passed. Moreover, he's certainly not as unstable or impulsive as Sunkist.

    Either way, I'm certainly willing to roll the dice with that one.

    But.....the people running around saying "See! We should have elected Hillary!" are as wrong as it is humanely possible to be.

    Domestically, we need a progressive POTUS who will really protect the poor, revive the middle class and restrain the 0.01% to a reasonable degree. (Probably not Bernie. 81 is an unreasonable age for a POTUS, IMO.)

    Maybe Warren, but the problem there is, although she's a math and economics genius, I can't recall her every demonstrating any proficiency in justice or social issues.

    But no matter. Stop saying "We need to save Obamacare!" No, we are hideously injured by Obamacare. We need universal care.

    We need a POTUS who will attack our stupid drug laws and dismantle the prison industrial complex. We KNOW that is not Hillary, as she is the main architect of it. No Democrat of her corporatist type is at all acceptable.

    Trump refocused attention on the HUGE pockets of poverty and despair in this country. The Rust Belt. Appalachia. Etc. We need a POTUS who will carry out his trade agenda. Or something very near to it -- not another TPP proponent.

    So, as we throw the baby out with the bathwater, can we please exercise some care not to kill the middle class and bring about a Depression that never ends?

    We need REAL liberals. And the one place we know they won't be found is the Democratic party.
    I don't want to impeach Trump, I just want to make him so miserable he quits.

    That said, you are assuming that somehow, miraculously, if Trump were gone, Democrats would be in charge. That's nowhere near happening. It doesn't matter if it's Hillary, Bernie, Warren or God himself in the White House, you need a Dem majority to get anything done.

    I'd be fine with Pence in there if we could get a few more Dems in the Senate. Pence is establishment, the alt right isn't going to support him, what's left of the tea party types aren't going to support him on a lot of issues, in fact I'd wager Rand Paul would openly fight a lot of his policies which I suspect would wind up including trade deals just as a way to boost his profile for a 2020 run.

    If Pence was president, he could be blocked because he's not Trump and the people who love Trump aren't going to be loyal to him if he doesn't follow Trump's plans for a lot of things and I suspect he won't.

    As to who is going to lead the Dems in the future? My choice would be Sherrod Brown, should he choose to do it. I think he's got the right stuff and his record speaks for itself on rust belt issues.
    Thanks from Frank, OldGaffer and Madeline

    I disagree and I disagree with your assessment of Clinton. But wear yourself out.

    The evil is pretending to be perfect and never getting ANYTHING done because you refuse to compromise (and so do they) unless you get 100% of what you want.

    The complaint is gridlock. What causes gridlock? Holier than thou people, refusing to give, in order to get.

    America would never have become the United States of America in this day and age. It became a nation because after much debate, people decided they had to sh*t or get off the pot and they weren't going to do either unless they came to agreements and coming to agreements meant giving up some things to get the more important things.

    Grown-ups learn that about life, when they are children.

    Bernie is a progressive and recommended people vote for Hillary Clinton after being the VICTIM of the "evil" HRC and the DNC.......are you more progressive than him or just willing to whore yourself out to some imagined perfect candidate (that does not exist) you would ignore anyway, just like you did Bernie Sanders? Your "better" judgement, got America and you what? Something better than HRC?

    It's like cutting off your arm for fear you might cut your finger.
