NY Times Is A Bit Concerned Over This Impeachment Threat Against Hillary

Seriously, there’s absolultely no reason to consider impeaching Hillary if she wins the White House, right? She’s an angel who does nothing wrong! And no one nor party has ever talked like this during an election season, right?

Donald Trump’s Impeachment Threat

Donald Trump and other embattled Republican candidates are resorting to a particularly bizarre and dangerous tactic in the closing days of the campaign — warning that they may well seek to impeach Hillary Clinton if she wins, or, short of that, tie her up with endless investigations and other delaying tactics.

Of all the arguments advanced by the Trump forces, this has to be among the most preposterous. In effect, what they’re saying is, Mrs. Clinton won’t be able to govern, because we won’t let her. So don’t waste your vote on her. Vote for us.

How dare this occur in politics!  I mean, goodness, certainly Democrats weren’t threatening to investigate and impeach George Bush during the 2004 election season, right?

In a rational world — you know, one that values comity and progress in the national interest — this line of argument would be seen as incendiary at worst and hopelessly wacky at best. Not so in Trumpland, where the candidate himself warns (as he did in Miami on Wednesday) that a Clinton victory would “create an unprecedented and protracted constitutional crisis,” raising the specter that government would be severely hobbled by congressional Republicans’ open-ended investigations and a determination to impeach Mrs. Clinton. All this even if she was fairly elected by a majority of American voters.

It’s so mean!

As nonsensical as this strategy appears, these threats could cause real damage by encouraging Republicans in the next Congress to effectively take the government hostage, exacting revenge by making sure that nothing Mrs. Clinton proposes ever comes to pass. President Obama put it well in underlining the dangers. “Right now, because a lot of them think that Trump will lose, they’re already promising even more unprecedented dysfunction in Washington,” he told North Carolina voters this week. “How does our democracy function like that?”

Considering Obama’s avoidance of engaging the duly elected legislative branch while using executive orders that are often dubious and blocked by the judiciary branch, Obama’s the last person who should be speaking on democracy.

Beyond simple hypocrisy, the Republicans’ impeachment threat demonstrates their gathering disrespect for democracy. If they can’t gain control of government fairly, they’ll simply undermine it. It is the clearest warning yet that voters must deliver a firm rejection of the politics of division that Mr. Trump represents.

Or, it could be that Republicans see an utterly untrustworthy person who blows off national security for her own “convenience” (we all know that her email server was about much, much more), left Americans to die in Benghazi, consorts with people linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, used her position at State to engage in pay for play, enriching herself and her family, sold out US interests to Russia (uranium deal), used her so-called charity to enrich herself, and so much more.

Where was the NY Times Editorial Board when Democrats were working hard to undermine President George W. Bush? Nowhere to be found. They didn’t seem to care about disrespect for democracy then.

    If Mrs Clinton is elected, she will enter office with more legal problems than Richard Nixon had at the start of his second term. Some might recall that President Nixon’s second term didn’t end well.

    At some point, you have to ask, knowing that she was planning a presidential campaign all along, why did her husband and she do everything they possibly could to, at the very least, push the edge of the envelope on legality? Why didn’t they just do everything not only legally but ethically, and obviously ethically? Why not just do things the right way?

    If Mrs Clinton were an honest person, there’d be no contest: she’d win the election in a landslide.

    If Mrs. Clinton were an honest person she would not be “Mrs. Clinton” and she’d be an obscure divorcee working in Arkansas and our nation would be saved.

    Spoken like a real ultra leftist…..

    Your racist remarks speak to the problem the left is having…..their racist remarks no longer sting like they used to as we have a candidate who promises to help the inner cities, bring back jobs….which by the way the left has screamed about for years……and he is promising to do so many things that the left actually are in favor of….

    But you see the end of the CLOWARD AND PIVEN STRATEGY THE LEFT has been perpetrating on the USA….staggering debt, massive influx of illegals to further burden the system….ACA to force more debt on the government until they finally have to raise taxes which creates poverty among the middle class…..

    No more…even if HRC wins……no more of this….PC is gone….a year of trump mouthing off against PC has shown the right that you can stand up to these clowns that want to destroy America from within…..

    Thats the message we are all sending with Trump……NO MORE of the lefts cesspool.

    James Comey laid out for congress an impeachable offense against HRC….however one has to remember that not only democrats but republicans as well went after Nixon.

    What did nixon do…he authorized the BREAK IN(Email servers) at watergate the DNC headquarters to bug the place which would help him possibly win the election by knowing their strategies…..Then he DESTROYED EVIDENCE(destroying emails, smashing Phones and devices) that might implicate him.

    Simply put Gowdy asked if HRC emailed classified material…..Comey responded YES.

    Two things….HRC LIED UNDER OATH….HRC VIOLATED THE LAW BY HAVING UNCLASSIFIED MATERIAL where people without security clearances could easily obtain, read and copy or steal said material.

    Even these three things gets anybody in the USA 20 years in FEDERAL prision…Hell a navy sailor who had 6 pictures of classified areas on his cellphone went to jail…even after fully cooperating with the investigation.

    So the case against HRC…is public…..there is no he said she said….this was all admitted to publicly. HRC in her old age is starting to forget how to lie effectively and its caught her…..

    These are impeachable offenses if she is elected….if she is not….they still are…..

    Dont get me started on the EX PRESIDENT OF THE USA and his pay for play which is clearly laid out step by step….and then we get lawyers like ZACH showing up trying to rope a dope till tuesday because they know that HRC as PREZ CAN MAKE THIS ALL GO AWAY WITH HER PARDON WAND.
