The “most highly biblical and godly president we’ve ever seen,” (only according to Michele Bachmann) spent Easter Sunday ranting about the Mueller report and accusing Democrats of ridiculous crimes on social media. After a full day of ranting, Trump finally demanded to know exactly how he would be impeached.
The question has a very easy answer. A president declaring an entire political party, along with the FBI, the CIA, foreign intelligence agencies, his predecessor, and his former political rival of criminal activity doesn’t make it so. There must be proof that a person committed a crime. Democrats call that proof the Mueller report.
The U.S. Constitution states that a president can be impeached for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Obstruction of justice, much less 11 separate instances of it, is a crime. People go to jail for that crime after having done less than Trump was proven to have done every day. A Republican president gets impeached the same way a Democrat does, most recently President Bill Clinton. With no other underlying crime, Clinton was impeached for asking someone to lie and lying under oath about an extramarital affair. Trump actually committed crimes in the course of his job as president. That can and should cause a president to be impeached.
The Mueller report lays out an astonishing number of crimes and unethical behavior committed by Trump during the 2016 presidential elections. Trump can deflect and shift the blame all he wants, but the proof is already public.
Twitter was happy to explain to Trump how he can be impeached. Read some of their comments below:
