As brilliant as Trey Gowdy is, the comment someone quoted by him doesn't make sense. The fact Biden is Vice-President is hardly a good reason not to impeach President Pinocchio. His impeachment would not automatically make the Delaware Dunce President. Pinocchio almost certainly could not be convicted even if impeached, so he might very well choose to stay on, just as B.J. Clinton did.
Now with that said...
Krauthammer's analysis, opinions and comparisons on the legality and future consequences of Obama taking action on the immigration issue, was absolutely spot on. It's simply mind blowing how democrats in Washington and the people on the political left are perfectly content with Obama taking such action. In my opinion it's quite a blow to the credibility of the political left and brings into question whether they can be trusted to govern this nation in the future.
I know that my words may strike some, especially those on the left, as being harsh but just think about the precedent Obama will be setting and ask yourself if you will feel comfortable with a Republican president being able to do the very same thing with the laws and issues that are of great importance to you? If you can honestly say that you would be comfortable with that, then go after me with both guns... But if you can't, then it's about time that you, and every single liberal who feels the same way, to use your voices to stop this from happening.
Impeaching Johnson was part of a series of interrelated political maneuvers I won't get into here, but it's a very interesting story. As you suggest, though, Johnson's impeachment is proof that claims about having to commit crimes, etc. are just drivel. All sorts of acts can be made to qualify as high crimes or misdemeanors. The impeachment process is nothing like ordinary criminal procedure in a civil court. It's just a way to remove an official when enough people are fed up with him.
Wasn't Krauthammer saying that Benghazi was an impeachable offense? Whatever happened to that story anyway? *crickets*
