    First off, there were crimes alleged in the articles of impeachment.

    Second, "high crimes and misdemeanors" actually includes a number of things that are not explicitly violations of criminal law. The founding fathers got that term from English common law. It means what it means. I know you want to bury the intent of the founding fathers to protect Trump, but don't expect the rest of us to go along with it, ok?
    So nobody forgets, you're welcome!

    He added, ominously: “In a few days we start pressing FIRE for the first time.”

    In a follow-up tweet, Parscale said the Trump campaign had assembled an “enormous lead in cash”. He said that Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee “won’t know what hit him”.

    When you have no actual accomplishments to run on, this is what you get. Trump/GOP can't win on their "policies" either, so expect some scorched earth style campaign tactics and gutter politics in the likes we've never seen before in our lifetimes.

    The Reality T.V. re-election campaign is underway. Will it be successful? Time will tell.
    America = Alderaan?

    Or is this one more selective, and it's just those "libturds" in the sights?

    You do have to step back and stare in wonder.

    They actually try to claim that by "high crimes and misdemeanors", they mean crimes found in the federal code. The federal code that did not exist before the constitution was ratified and congress created a federal code.

    But yes, you're right. They meant corruption in the attaining and exercise of office; corruption in the colloquial sense. But hey, it's not like they argue about anything honestly. Say a few defiant-sounding words, repeat what they half-remember from ****er Carlson and Hannity the night before, collect a couple Trumpist likes, call it a win.
