    Yes, from that perspective does look like a witch hunt to get Clinton. The thing is that if people knew the truth about what was going on pretty much everyone would have been gone. So, to appease the people that wanted investigation they started that, and star had to just find a crime that would only implicate Clinton. You can't commit a serious high-level crime without having some form of government help.

    The reason this analogy doesn't work with Trump is that, crimes were committed to try and keep Trump out of the White House. Then those crimes were used as evidence that Trump committed those crimes, which was what sparked the initial investigation in the first place.

    That's why with Trump the purpose was not impeachment, but rather overthrow.

    In other words not an apples-to-apples comparison.
    I couldn't figure out what your point was.
