There has only been 3 impeachments so far (Johnson, Nixon, & Clinton) and none were removed. Right now this is just an inquiry but in the next month or so I am sure that we will see a full on impeachment and everything will be in public and even the State TV watchers won't be able to spin it.The real lesson is how frantic Spanky and his cultists are. They "can't handle the truth", to quote yet another movie, so they want to suppress the gathering of evidence. Even Nixon didn't try something like that.
I've seen 3 of 5 US Presidential impeachments in my life (Nixon, Clinton and Spanky). Did I do something very wrong in a previous incarnation or is this an entertainment reward for previous good deeds. Definitely this one is the most colourful and entertaining so far.
I don't dare to imagine what Trump would have done in the same situation...Trump about killing the leader of ISIS: "“He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way,” the president said. [...]“He died like a dog. He died like a coward”.
"It seems very clear that he is incredibly concerned about Ukrainian defense," said former Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy on CNN Tuesday morning. "I don't know that he's concerned about American policy ... we all have an affinity to our homeland where we came from ... he has an affinity for the Ukraine."
"Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade echoed that sentiment Tuesday morning. "He tends to feel simpatico with Ukraine," he said of Vindman.
And on Tuesday night, Fox's Laura Ingraham led a panel discussion in which she and her guests suggested that Vindman might actually be a double agent for the Ukrainians.
How? Why? Well, what's happening here is clear. Vindman was born in Ukraine. He fled the country with his father and twin brother at age 3. (His brother, Yevgeny, is a lawyer at the NSC.)
And so, despite the fact that Vindman's entire life has been an uniquely American success story -- college graduate, decorated military veteran, government official -- Republicans are seizing on the fact he was born in Ukraine to suggest his motives in coming forward to speak out about his concerns over Trump's behavior are something short of pure.
What evidence -- outside of the fact that Vindman was born in Ukraine -- do people like Duffy, Kilmeade and Ingraham have to make these outrageous claims? Oh, none.
Did you read it, or just the propaganda surrounding it? Anyone that reads that and thinks there isn’t a quid-pro-quo isn’t working within reality.We already have the transcript. There is just nothing there to impeach.

If you think trying to get dirt on an opponent from foreign governments isn’t impeachable, then fine. But arguing there isn’t a quid-pro-quo is the true TDS.
