  1. Impeachment is a political question, only because your constitution is a complete joke and you don't have an independent judiciary.

  2. every argument must start with a definition of terms. If you don't define what the word political means you've already lost the argument. Even though I agree that Trump should be impeached, you need to define what you mean by political. Without this definition, your argument is meaningless and goes nowhere.

  3. Criminal conduct in our government undermines us all…Donald Trump had made everyone who disagrees with him his enemy…He loves people who hate people…

  4. The same democrats that were all in on the russian hoax might as well amuse us with an impeachment charade, especially since their media lapdogs could use some ratings.

  5. Politically it's the wrong move to impeach Trump (ensure his 2020 victory). But. Do it anyway! – The Deep State

  6. The reason they keep saying it's political is because there ARE no crimes… now you're going back around the circle and saying ignore that it's politically bad. So now there is no reason AND it hurts you. Wow, you have to be really brainwashed by the mainstream media to do this.

  7. This whole title and description is completely wrong. The
    The left was scared from the minute that Trump said he was going to run for POTUS! They started saying they're going to do everything weather legal or illegal to get him thrown out.
    Everyone praised the illegal part.
    That's a shame.

  8. Big surprise, another garbage anti Trump hit piece from the WP. Nothing more than the propaganda arm of the democratic party

  9. Keep on lying to yourselves to imagine Trump's impeachment as anything BUT a political hit job, and a really flimsy one at that. Good luck impeaching the most accomplished president in history. IMBECILES!

  10. rather cowardly and predictable that our thoroughly corrupt polluted dishonest disgraced dnc press scam would not attempt to leverage their totally political unacceptable expectations and increasingly compromised conditions onto the president and nation with more persuasive passion, that being their supposed respect. a very poor and traditionally sloppy job of failing in all ways to communicate reality or the actual context of concern by our clinton catastrophe crew reporting ventures, which is in essence their policy and popularity and 'power'. the print and cable industry political agendas are in their own ultimatum and angrily attempting to still play dr ford. sad lol.

  11. Law grad here, I understand what the Op-Ed is trying to say, but when we say “political question” we don’t mean something is “just politics” we simply mean that the courts in their normal function do not make the ultimate decision. Yes, according to the constitution the Chief Justice has a role in the impeachment process, the the Court itself usually avoids taking cases with a “political question” which would be better served by the normal political processes.

  12. The question is can we even agree what the common good is when at least 1/3 of the population is in thrall to a cult leader that regards the executive branch of the federal government as his personal plaything.

  13. Yes but politically speaking, Democratic leadership have to ask themselves whether or not Democrats want Trump impeached. And the answer to that question is overwhelmingly yes! They need to worry about increasing Democratic voter turn out which was poor the last election and not what conservatives/swing voters want.

  14. Whatever the House thinks impeachment is, the president will not be removed unless two thirds of the senate agrees to do it and that will NEVER EVER happen. So basically, impeachment is a Democrat fantasy.

  15. 1:22…the little boy….If we..(I) don't get what we ..(I) want I'll shut the government down…look at his face, his demeanor, his need to control..he is truly repugnant…And, I'll be ok taking information from outside of the USA…so that I win….The National Emergency in this country is the President…that was then….A christmas gift for government workers…..he has only become more of an issue since then

  16. The view that everything is just politics reduces the world to the cynical pursuit of power over others.
    Uhhh you mean like reality.

  17. Your right it's a mechanism.
    ┬┴┬┴┤ ͜ʖ ͡°) ├┬┴┬┴
    But you need proof.
    (͡ ͡° ͜ つ ͡͡°)
    Not just being mad you lost the election.
    ( ͡°╭͜ʖ╮͡° )

  18. I am sorry for what I said in the past plase frogeve me I don't hate burne the man just his ideas if he wins ok only 4 or 8.

  19. There is a serious problem with this country if a president is impeached simply because the House doesn't like him. The Left is setting a terrible precedent. They need to calm down and head to the voting booth if they really want to see this president removed from office.

  20. Liar King meets the criteria for impeachment. Are Democrats willing to put country above party?
    Is it "the right thing" to do? IMO … yes and it certainly could negatively impact Dems. ….. or not??? Either way I want fighters for our democracy/rule of law/Republic. If Dems won't fight they ought to run home and hide under their beds. I will not vote for a docile Dem.

  21. The Democrats are using impeachment to evade responsibility for the malfeasance that will be revealed by the three Federal probes of the Mueller investigation farce.

  22. I hate to tell you, but this incessant desire for Dems to impeach Trump is nothing but political. There's literally ZERO evidence he's done anything wrong.
