    You're a couple plays behind big guy. Trump is no longer arguing that he's innocent of the charges, they've moved on to abuse of power not being an impeachable offense, as laughable as that is.

    So you can give up this charade that he did nothing wrong and that this is some sort of witch hunt- that ship has sailed.

    Whoa, this sounds like a game changer! For reference could you please tell us how many times the GAO said that Obama broke the law?

    He is making a constitutional argument. Is that too much for you to comprehend?

    Two wrongs not making a right notwithstanding - Trump violated that law in furtherance of his own personal interest,Obama's DoD did so to bring a US POW back home.

    A very bad one, and one he wouldn't be making if he believed Trump wasn't guilty of abusing of power.

    The GAO accused Obama of breaking the law seven times. The GAO did not accuse or prove that Trump did anything for any more personal reason than Obama did. That's purely your spin.

    He made a similar argument when Clinton was impeached. In 2016 he was public in his support of Hillary. He is not a Trump fan. He is a fan of the constitution. He's well respected and he is making a clear constitutional argument.

    He claims that abuse of power isn’t an impeachable offense. Which is laughable. Not only did the founders make it clear that they feared the executive would gain too much power but they gave the legislative branch the impeachment to guard against the executive’s abuse of power.

    If abuse of power isn’t impeachable, why even have impeachment in the constitution anyway?

    I’m curious, do Trumpers not understand where this is headed? Are they this ignorant of history? This stupid?



    maybe this answers my own question...

    Are you aware that Republicans consistently accuse Democrats of "abuse of power." Many Republicans believe that Obama and Clinton abused their power repeatedly. They kept using their power to do things that the Republicans didn't like at all. Have you ever heard of a crime called "abuse of power?" No, you haven't, because it doesn't exist.

    He isn't though, maybe he was and shouldn't have been, but his relationship with Epstein basically torpedoed his respectability. Well that and making ludicrous constitutional arguments.

    Just in case you wanted some evidence beyond basic common sense that abuse of power is an impeachable offense, here's Alexander Hamilton's opinion in the Federalist Papers:

    A well-constituted court for the trial of impeachments is an object not more to be desired than difficult to be obtained in a government wholly elective. The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself.

    Lmao this is incredible.

    The second article of impeachment against Nixon was for abuse of power.

    You are out of your depth here, relying on the words of charlatans and conmen.

    so when Obama exchanges Taliban prisoners in exchange for releasing an American prisoner (one of the 7 times GAO cited Obama), Obama personally benefitted from this? Dude, throw in the towel you are just embarrassing yourself.

    So the right wing nut jobs go from “trump broke no law”. To “ok, he broke the law but everyone does it”

    it is like arguing with mindless quicksand. No matter what facts come out they will obey and protect their master.
