My first reaction is that if impeachment of a past President is warranted, then they should be tried.

I expect that the difficulties presented in witnesses and evidence will tend to prevent post-impeachment, but if they did the crime....

It should also considered that impeachment applies to MANY offices.  Both the example of post-impeachment were for non-presidential positions.

Good luck getting that to fly in congress.  Idiot.

Republicans seem desperate to prevent the airing of Trump's dirty laundry.  I wonder why.
 
2021-01-23 6:42:15 PM  
I guess the republicans still feel like there are more idiots out there to buy into their BS.

Republicans cannot be Soo dimwitted to not grasp trump was impeached while in office can they? Are republicans  claiming they impeached past presidents while in office but just lost the paperwork and forgot to tell anyone?
 
2021-01-23 6:50:41 PM  
we really need to talk about the fact that every time we try and hold Republicans accountable they respond by threatening democrats.
 
2021-01-23 6:59:45 PM  
I always knew the GOP had it out for James Buchanan. They will finally get their revenge!

Dems have no former President eligible for any penalty, unless you count Carter. What the GOP will do is attempt to impeach/convict/bar every single former administration member that might want to run for President. Come to think of it, if Dems had done that to the Nixon administration, we would have never had Newt.

More and more it is showing that Trump intended to become a strongman and stay in office permanently. More and more we will learn that this guy and others were part of his attempts.

I can't believe they will get away with it. Well no actually I can believe it. I just can't believe people are thinking the Democrats will actually hold them accountable.

Dems have been in power for 3 days. The DoJ leadership is still predominately GOP/Trump toadies.

Finally the Republicans think they can live the dream and impeach Barack Obama for Presidenting While Black.
 
2021-01-23 8:45:29 PM  
You know they would. They're the party of grievance, hypocrisy and mindless retribution. They must never be allowed to win again. And Trump still needs to be stopped at all costs. His Patriot Party will end up being the new name for the Republican Party, only it will be even more outright fascist.

And it will always be too soon until everybody's forgotten why we wanted to talk in the first place.

If a former official committed a crime while in office, but wasn't appropriately dealt with at the time, then yes, Impeach that person AND all the other people in office at the time who DIDN'T deal with it at the time.  If you're just pulling a BSAB move, then you need to be catapulted into the sun.

\can a catapult cause an item to reach escape velocity?

Republicans always come up with the most weirdly childish retorts to pretty much any action. 
We've impeached the president for inciting an insurrection, the trial is after he leaves office.
WELL WE ARE GONNA IMPEACH DEAD PRESIDENTS NOW!! AND OBAMA!
 
2021-01-23 9:06:02 PM  
They could impeach Bill Clinton and Obama to block them from running for a 3rd term.
 
2021-01-23 9:19:10 PM  
We need to outlaw the Republican party

/They've crossed the line from loyal opposition to treasonous bastards

Yep. Jimmy Carter inconsolable.

I guess Obama could be nominated for SCOTUS. Bill Clinton isn't gonna be a judge. Too old & too disbarred.

Because if all the evidence comes out, they all together hang.

They are crooks. Murders.
You know it.
I know it.
But the delicate fabric of bullshiat they use for armor is being powerwashed off now.

They are collectively farked and they know it.

A lot of them are going to  Dywer out.

They're STILL defending him. This won't end until he dies, at which point it still isn't going to end.

Their vote is in the public record. They are scared shiatless of that.

Good luck getting those votes then. File whatever paperwork you want, waste your time, grandstand, whatever. It's all your party does anyway. I think most of America has stopped caring about the petty bullshiat on the Hill and just wants help.

So, obstruct and play stupid games, it isn't exactly a good look for you, meanwhile, let the adults do real business.

Garza and the Supermutants: You know they would. They're the party of grievance, hypocrisy and mindless retribution. They must never be allowed to win again. And Trump still needs to be stopped at all costs. His Patriot Party will end up being the new name for the Republican Party, only it will be even more outright fascist.


And now that the idea is in their heads, they might well do it anyway regardless of whether Trump is convicted or not. The only thing that'll stop them is if there are enough of them (in whatever year they have a House majority) that will have enough sense to realize trying to impeach Obama will absolutely blow up in their face, and trying to impeach Clinton will at least have people laughing "What, again?" And there's a (tragically) fairly high chance Carter won't even be alive by that point, so doing a cadaver synod of him to avenge Trump will make them look even more ridiculous.

Wow. They're going to keep Obama or Clinton from running for a third term.

Oh gosh.

Maybe they're afraid of Carter?

\ They should be.

What the hell is a Dijon? Guy sounds guilty as hell.
 
2021-01-24 12:09:55 AM  
Damn, we better back down because the Republicans could impeach and prevent Clinton and Obama from ever being President ever again.

You don't have to be a barred lawyer to be a judge. Clinton should not be nominated anyway, but his disbarrment is not an obstacle.
