    Because you're projecting. You have no idea what morals or the rule of law are, so to you, they're just words to seize power, because that's all it would be to you, which is what you want to do to the next president in revenge.

    So why shouldn't he act partisan? Everyone else is.
    You misunderstand that 0% Republicans can mean partisan Republicans, not partisan Democrats.

    And it does.

    To be fair, an abuse of the impeachment power to remove a president without legitimate grounds could be called a "coup" - like what the Republicans tried to do to Bill Clinton. But the current impeachment is not that, and it's not even remotely a coup.

    Having a sitting president is going to necessarily mean that lots of people voted for him. However, note that the constitution does not say that should be no reason to impeach. It was one of their safeguards against mob rule.

    If you want to get rid of that, be ready for the next populist Democrat president to do whatever illegal thing he wants too, with you having no recourse. We will just say millions of people voted for him, and it shouldn’t matter. Right?

    Indeed. What I am saying though is that based on their logic, one could call the electoral college a coup because the president who was chosen does not reflect the will of the people. And he is being impeached by legislators who do reflect the will of the people.

    What a remarkably weak argument.

    Impeachment is a serious process, with monumental impact.

    Using that power unilaterally, as the Dems have, via the laughable evidence they have fabricated, is an affront to all citizens.

    While the majority in control of the House has every right to proceed as they have, that right doesn't insulate them from the scorn that the present, and history, will assign to them.

    Pandora will get her revenge, and Friday the 13th will take on new meaning for Democrats for a very long time to come.

    What about the will of 65 million people? I don't think you want to play that game.

    As I pointed out earlier, the Republicans changing their mind about the president committing a quid pro quo made it partisan.

    look in the mirror.....this is revenge for Clinton impeachment
    According to NBC, “Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”
