    I trust, then, that you objected to Starr's investigation into anything beyond Whitewater?

    Sounds exactly like the Republicans under Obama and Clinton. You cannot complain at this point, having set the political precedent.

    I completely agree with the editors of LA Times (when I am calm and reflective; when outraged I sound like the Red Queen from Alice in Wonderland.)

    Your thoughts?
    it's a thoughtful, well written, very rational, analysis of the situation. The only place I disagree would be in treating Trump like presidents of the past. Trump is a clear and present danger to our national security. He's unstable , he's incompetent, he's arrogant and he's unwilling to view his election, or the presidency, with a sober head. He thinks because he got elected saying crazy things that he has a mandate to behave like a crazy person. This is not sarcasm. It's really what he appears to believe. He's not like any other president. Because no other president has posed the threat that he does.

    Still, I agree that impeachment is not something that should be taken lightly. But it is something that we should be seriously considering at this point. Whether we actually have the votes in Congress to get it done or not is another question. Those in Congress looking the other way, perhaps waiting until their butts are on the line, voters need to keep a watchful eye on. And come next election let them know in no uncertain terms that won't be tolerated.
    Thanks from MaryAnne and HayJenn

    It's a class war, and nobody is fighting the 0.01% other than Bernie.
    I could never support someone with the economic policies that Bernie wants.

    One small problem. The intelligence officer quoted above was actually Aldrich Ames, a CIA traitor whose crime of treason in the 1980s and 1990s resulted in the compromise of more than 100 assets. Many were tortured and executed as a result.
    Amesí flawed logic is eerily similar to that of his present-day colleagues who are engaged in a shadow war with their commander in chief. They, too, have decided that their superior judgment is more important than following the law.

    Seriously I give up. If people don't know by now that all 17 IA agencies confirmed that Russian was behind Wikileaks (plus they just found out that they tried to mess with a voter resignation firm) than they are either willfully being obtuse or live under a rock.

    This should NOT be a partisan thing. The next time around it could be the GOP that is hit by the Russians. And that should worry everyone.

    But, I also know that the D's and their allies, MSM, love to fill the air with impeachment talk.

    Those of us in flyover country are not as stupid as the MSM and Liberals think we are.
    Not interested in impeachment. we just want to drag the investigation out as long as possible to keep the dumbshit from fucking up too much more. We also want to point out which politicians are stupid enough to actually support the dumbshit so in the next election they will lose.
