    I hope that's wrong even though it gets him out of office. The Trump gang would be left to run amok in DC if he quits without full revelation of everybody's bad deeds.

    I've heard a few really smart people who have consistently put that as the bottom line.

    So long as Republicans have the White House we are not going to prosper. So it doesn't matter whether it is Trump or Pence or anyone else in the Republican Party. If Trump does get impeached that would be a major blow because it would validate everything his critics said about him. He is unqualified for the job and mentally unfit to lead. Beyond that hopefully Americans come to their senses and just vote a Democrat in to office next time.

    He's going to bite Mueller's ear, and then when he's warned that a second instance will lead to a DQ, he'll do it again. He'll lose the presidency but at least come off like a scary alpha.

    His critics have already been completely validated. He's been in office four months and his whole presidency is coming unraveled thanks to unprecedented corruption and incompetence.

    Again, what we've got is a report on a piece of a memo written by Comey read by someone else to a third party. Even if it exists and was read word-for-word (not saying it doesn't or wasn't), it is essentially worthless without Comey testifying that he felt Trump was interfering in or pressuring him to drop a case against Flynn. If that happens, then Trump's going to be in hot water. If Comey says that he didn't feel pressured to drop the case or that Trump was legitimately trying to interfere with the investigation, then it likely amounts to nothing.

    Doubtful that Comey would have acknowledged the existence of the memo if he wasn't prepared to support it with testimony.

    Fantastic, and at that point we'll get the information we've all been seeking.

    Sure. You're talking about the actual process of the impeachment, and I'd agree that they need testimony and to get as full a picture as they can. I just said that based on what is already publicly known, impeachment is justified. You get the difference? We know enough that it should be done, but they shouldn't do it without going through a more formal process

    That isn't guaranteed. It's possible that he may only give sworn testimony to Mueller's team and there's no guarantee that one then be made public.

    I get the difference and still disagree. What is publicly known at this time is only justification for impeachment if it is seen and put into context.

    Good thing reports are saying he only wants to testify publicly.

    But yeah, we may not get details, but knowing that Comey testified and getting an official result of the investigation gives us much more insight to the situation than we currently have.

    Fair enough. You agree that it should be looked into, though, right? I think we're splitting hairs. They should confirm that the evidence is what it appears to be and says what it appears to say and then impeach if it is vs. they got the evidence, and they just need to confirm it.

    That was Congressional testimony. He didn't want that in a closed session, but rather a public hearing. Now he may only give testimony to the Mueller investigation in order to avoid any testimony given to Congress hindering the Mueller investigation. It's been suggested that Comey may ask Mueller for his opinion on whether or not he should also agree to testify before a Congressional committee.

    I think it needs to be looked into, as do other legitimate allegations of illegal activity.

    I can see it now:

    At my dinner with President Trump, it became clear to me that the President was indicating that we should let go of the investigation into the illegal activities of Michael Flynn, who at the time was the National Security Advisor. This, without a doubt put me in a position that I feel impacted my ability to perform the investigation to the fullest extent. In other words, I do feel justice was obstructed.




    However, I did not find there evidence that President Trump intended to violate laws regarding obstruction of justice.

    It's more than just illegal activity. The president firing the FBI director who is investigating his team (after asking him to stop) might be legal, but it's certainly obstruction of justice and impeachable (pending the formality of confirming that it happened and depending on Congress putting country before party).

    It isn't just Comey. Trump has fired 3 high ranking officials who had been investigating his administration or members of his administration.

    You don't think a serious wall would stop a lot of cocaine and heroin coming into the US?

    No, it wouldn't because the cartels already use much better methods than the underpants of a guy crossing the desert. Boats, planes, subs, and trucks
