    High Crimes And Misdemeanors

    From my understanding a crime means you have broken the law. I would say that a high crime means you have broken a very serious law. If you commit a misdemeanor it also means you have broken the law. What laws has Trump actually broken? What crime has he been convicted of?

    Out of curiosity I just googled the nine items listed in Nixon's article of impeachment number 1... trump is 9 for 9.

    It's cute that you ask what crime "has he been convicted of" when you ****in well know he can't be convicted of a crime while in office. Did you think none of us would figure out that you invented an impossible goalpost?

    Why are you even here? You clearly have no intention of engaging in intelligent discourse with the whole “what crime has he committed” garbage, so why are you even here? Are you being paid to be here? If we top it, will you leave?

    Looks like 3 of the 4 they looked at are not likely so it would come down to obstruction of justice, which would also likely be a no if Nancy is successful in confining it to the phone call. Sure Trump will probably be impeached, but unless there is some evidence that gets people not already against him against him, it will backfire both in the Senate and in the election.

    There's been no convictions of anyone yet. There will be articles of impeachment and each article listed, such as abuse of power. Trump threatened to withhold aid from Ukraine if its Prime Minister did not investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son. Using taxpayer dollars to manipulate an important ally against Russia and attack a political rival is a clear abuse of presidential power. Furthermore, Trump's administration tried to conceal the whistleblower complaint that brought this corruption to light and label the civil servant who filed it as partisan. The White House has also obstructed justice by refusing to cooperate with this investigation and by prohibiting witnesses to appear to testify.

    That is not what high crimes and misdemeanors means.

    It can mean something as slight as actions unbecoming a president.

    Please try and say with a straight face that trump hasn't crossed that line.

    Above and beyond that I have listed many of trumps crimes that unless pardoned he will do time for.

    In comparison he makes Nixon look like a saint...
