    Because there are a good many people (apparently including you) who do not believe he's violated the law at all, and impeachment of the President of the United States should not be done lightly. Furthermore, he can make a legal case that he's following the law. It's a bull**** case, to be sure, but that's pretty standard in politics: The president interprets the law in the way most favorable to himself, his solicitor-general creates the legal arguments to justify it, and the court either buys it or they order him to stop. That's all that is necessary here; the stuff about impeachment is just partisan nonsense.

    I can't. This is important.

    The questions presumes that he did violate it, not necessarily that he has violated it as of this moment.

    and impeachment of the President of the United States should not be done lightly
    I agree... I simply have a hard time understanding how the proposed violation is something "light".

    Furthermore, he can make a legal case that he's following the law. It's a bull**** case, to be sure, but that's pretty standard in politics: The president interprets the law in the way most favorable to himself, his solicitor-general creates the legal arguments to justify it, and the court either buys it or they order him to stop.
    Yes... and if he violates that order to stop, you have said, then you'd consider impeachment as he would be in contempt of court.
    But... by willfully violating the law itself, he's already in contept of the law.
    Contempt of court is impeachable, contempt of the law is not? The difference is...?
    Rememeber that the President is, among other things, charged with faithfully executing the laws passed by Congress; wilfully violating the law is a willfull vioation of the oath to that effect.

    I support impeachment for any president who does not follow the law but, sadly it will never happen.
    Obama, Bush Jr., Clinton, Bush Sr. Reagan, etc have all not followed the law but, the dog and pony show continues.

    Not surprisingly, you continue to lie.
