Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 25, 2019

(Tom Coleman is a former Republican U.S. representative from Missouri) There is a trove of evidence in the Mueller report indicating Trump has committed multiple impeachable offenses, including abuse of power and lying to the American public. Both were part of the articles of impeachment brought against President Richard Nixon ... Because DOJ regulations put a president above the law while in office, I believe the only viable option available is for the House of Representatives, under Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution, to open its own investigation, hold public hearings and then determine if they should pursue removal of the president through impeachment.

If this process leads to impeaching Trump in the House of Representatives and also results in convicting him in the Senate, his illegitimacy would survive through Vice President Mike Pence's succession to the presidency. Because the misdeeds were conducted to assure the entire Trump-Pence ticket was elected, both former candidates -- Pence as well as Trump -- have been disgraced and discredited. To hand the presidency to an illegitimate vice president would be to approve and reward the wrongdoing while the lingering stench of corruption would trail any Pence administration, guaranteeing an untenable presidency. If Trump is impeached, then Pence should not be allowed to become president. The vice president should resign or be impeached as well if for no other reason that he has been the chief enabler for this illegitimate president.
I think we found another Republican who won't be interviewed on Faux Gnus this holiday weekend. This is why Pelosi's seeming slow walk may end up being successful, especially if more Republicans - even retired ones - make their voices heard on the need to hold this President accountable for his own actions.

There were several ways that was accomplished; gerrymandering, Interstate Crosscheck, and then Russian influence. It is not a coincidence that neither Trump nor McConnell want any federal prevention of foreign meddling in our elections. That point alone proves that they depend on it for victory. They welcome foreign meddling in our elections. They are traitors, more loyal to Russia than they are to America. Putin owns them stupid.
For a moment consider that as a true statement, then consider are you ok with it? Perhaps you need to reconsider what patriotic American means. If, in your mind, it means allowing Russian interference in American elections then I have to let you in on something.....you aren't and haven't been a loyal patriotic American for a long time.
