    Same eye rolling crap when I used to listen to Reps talk about impeaching Obama for his birth certificate or having flatulence in the Oval Office.

    Futile hissy fit.
    1: The Republican House will never vote to Impeach, and
    2: The Republican Senate will never gather the 60 votes to convict.

    Not unlike the interminable futile series of votes to repeal Obamacare during his administration.

    Pretty high probability the House will be in the mood to impeach after the '18 mid-terms. Senate probably still won't convict, but it would be a closer run thing than the Trump zealots will admit.

    Actually, you need 67 votes to convict.

    True, and they still won't get them, and they will still come closer than Trump zealots are willing to admit.....

    If the Dims get the required 67 seats in the Senate they WILL impeach Trump on general principles. That is if they don't murder him first.

    It's going to get crazy if Trump extends executive clemency to Flynn.

    He could do that but it doesn't get him away from the State charges that will definitely follow and it opens up Trump to another chorus of condemnation. This time from the left & right side of the aisle. I don't see it happening.

    Trump would be open to another chorus of condemnation if he found a cure for cancer. Meanwhile, career criminal Cankles continues to skate.
