    Trump: The third POTUS ever to be Impeached

    "Isn't it pathetic" -- Trump, 2011. Obviously the circumstances are different, but one has to appreciate the irony.

    I don't know whether or not a far-right god-fearing population is a preferable alternative. It's swings and roundabouts though, it'll all be different in 20 years.

    Well, you pack of crazy sons of bitches

    Hope you all had a wonderful Xmas and New Year, full of sleep-ins, food, and friends/family/just-you-and-your-pets!!

    The WW3 hyperbole has been pretty good for my first week of 2020... Just look at the TikToks people have made, they're hilarious!!

    NSW / QLD fires

    Even Albo, love or hate Labor, is out there spending his own personal money to make life easier for the firies. TBH I thought some of the earliest bushfire-related criticism of Scummo was perhaps misguided, but as things unfold I'm less and less impressed with our PM and his attitude toward others.

    Can I just take a moment to retract any flippant remarks I may have made over the years about the personal character of Tony Abbott? @Leonid You were right, away from parliament, he's a good guy.

    It's not Leo's "theory". Impeachment isn't the whole process of removing a president, just the first step. To compare it to an individual accused of a crime, impeachment is only the equivalent of an indictment, not a conviction and sentencing.

    Do you not think there's at the very least a difference between "Please do this thing that will benefit us both long term" and "Please help me defame and slander my opponent"?

    C'mon man, you know what I mean. If somebody did it before, and wasn't impeached over it, then at best it's implicitly OK. This instance is going to a hearing, with a "jury", the result of which will explicitly spell out, in whatever the US Senate's equivalent of Hansard is, that this is OK. I say "jury" because the "jurors" are partisan politicians with a stake in the outcome. It's impossible for this process to be impartial, regardless of your view on the merit or motive of the case.

    When the senate acquits him in January, do you think this sets a precedent that it's perfectly OK to financially pressure foreign leaders to further your election campaign? Like, the transcript is black and white.

    I misread the article then (or the article got it backwards). My bad

    It's not the pipe dream you might think, many GOP congressmen crossed the floor to indict. Time will tell, I suppose.

    It means he won't be convicted of the charges laid out, that requires a 2/3rd majority of the upper house vote. If I understand correctly, the possibility remains that even without the conviction, a simple majority of the senate could prevent him from running for office again.

    Y'all are right, I was just trying to be optimistic.
  15. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/18/us/politics/impeachment-vote.html The first of two articles has been passed by Congress, with the second vote underway. That's it bois, he's OUTTA THERE.
