So if President Trump is impeached but the Senate finds him not guilty then he did nothing wrong? Is that correct?

The impeachment process is purely political.

Finding the President guilty of a crime is a legal issue.

Two different things really but both important.

The process to impeach a president would start in the House Judiciary Committee. If it made out of Committee it would proceed to a full vote in the House of Representatives.

The House would have first crack at passing the impeachment of the current President (again strictly political). If that were to happen and let’s assume it could with Dems having a majority starting in January and the chairmanships of all committees. A simple majority vote is all that is needed in the House. Then it would move to the Senate for a vote where a 2/3 (67 Votes) majority would be needed to impeach the President. IMO getting a 2/3 majority in the Senate would be impossible at this point.

So if the movement to impeach gets through the House but fails in the Senate it is over with...done.

However, that is different then the President having to face charges for any legal issues. That is a different path and could proceed or turn into nothing regardless of what is done or not done by Congress.

Does that make sense?

I think the talk of impeachment, as it currently stands, is impossible - much like poonie pointed out.

I believe what you're all talking about is indictment - which is possible, however I don't think has ever be done to a sitting president. Also, I'm not even sure if it's possible until he's out of office. So he'd either need to be impeached, resign or his term needs to end. Before that would be a grey area that I don't think anyone wants to go down.

I agree here.. He needs more time in government.
I don't think he has the depth to carry the party.

Actor Samuel L. Jackson once again went after President Trump during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday, mocking the border wall and calling the president a “cheap motherf*cker.”

Quote:
“Wall, wall, wall, wall, wall, wall! Is that all, all, all you can say?” Samuel L. Jackson said during a mock poetry slam. Jackson continued, “I don’t care if it’s concrete, steel, or paper-mâché. Guess what, Donald? Mexico ain’t going to pay.”
I sent Gov. Walker $100 after I heard his extremely Pro-life opening statement to start his run for the Primary. I considered it what Luanne and I would have paid for a 50-minute stage play.

Hillary supporters paid for the donation. How is this possible?

I put a lot of money on Mr. Trump carrying Wisconsin and won. So it a sideways payment from those who thought she would win Wis.

There never was to be a restaurant-like bill; eat the meal, pay for meal. Mexico has paid $25 billion several times over by getting rid of NAFTA.

If this article can be proven to be true, then lets just say that imo if Trump is successfully impeached and simply removed from office, he will be getting away cheap relative to what would/should be an appropriate penalty for a President who commits treason:

Democrats demand investigation after report that Trump ordered Michael Cohen to lie to Congress

“Buzzfeed News cites two unnamed...”

Stopped there. 5 words and two separate reasons I automatically knew this is bullshit. It’s a hitpiece to make Trump look like shit before the SOTU, which the democrats don’t want him doing, because that’s 8 full minutes or so he will talk directly to ALL of America and not just his rally base.

I'm all for him giving the SOTU the more Trump talks the worst things get.
It's going to be interesting to see if Mueller and company respond.

"Cohen acknowledged in interviews with the office of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III that the president directed him to deceive Congress about key facts linking Trump to the proposed deal in Russia."

If the fact that Cohen(a lawyer) is running around telling all his client's secrets, doesn't show just how much of a sleezball the guy is then there really is no hope.

If you want a 4 to a 5-star movie, watch "Chicago". The part where the lawyer has the players dancing as martinets with him pulling their strings is great.


One of my best of all times movies too.
