First Ever Presidential Two Time Loser? Donald Trump Can Be Impeached All Over Again

Mod: Is there a "two strikes" provision in the Constitution? If not, I think we have a really good opportunity to set a new Guinness World Record for impeachment. Certainly we've got the bigly best right candidate for the job.

Can Trump be impeached again? (The Washington Post link): Throughout this impeachment process, I’ve been fielding questions through my newsletter, The 5-Minute Fix. And many readers had such smart questions for what happens now that it’s over. So let’s round up one last batch of them.

Question: Is the “Double Jeopardy clause” in the Constitution applicable to impeachment — meaning he can’t be impeached again?

By far, the most common question I’ve gotten over the past few days is some variation of this one. So what are the House’s options if, following impeachment, it determines Trump has done something else that warrants impeachment?

“There is nothing in the Constitution prohibiting another impeachment trial of Donald Trump,” said Sarah Burns, an impeachment expert at the Rochester Institute of Technology, in an email to me. “They could even retry him for these charges if they so choose. For example, if John Bolton (Trump’s former national security adviser) or anyone else can prove that there was a threat to national security, the House could reopen the case.”

But there is a difference between being able to do something and wanting to do something. I have a very hard time seeing how Democrats take up impeachment again. The political cost of being seen as relentlessly trying to get the president out of office, especially as the election ticks closer, is just too high. Democrats are aware that they won the majority of the House of Representatives last year not by banging on Trump but by talking about health care. Remember, the races that made the difference for them happened in districts that Trump also won in.

Finally, impeachment is different from investigations. There is some push from folks like House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold E. Nadler (D-N.Y.) to keep the Ukraine investigations going by subpoenaing Bolton to hear what he knows about Trump and Ukraine. “When you have a lawless president, you have to bring that to the fore. You have to spotlight that,” Nadler told reporters.

    2. 7:10 sounds like a graduate of St Petersburg School of Law. There is no privilege for instructing subordinates to commit illegal acts. Nor does Congressional oversight require an impeachment authorization vote. Lies.

    2. Never considered a real talent by other national broadcasters, Rush Limbaugh's long career had renewed funding in 4 or 5 year ad blocks paid by three powerful US companies. Prudential Insurance was one of the three reliable sponsors who approved & supported his content over thirty years or longer. Objections to his content were ignored by the stations because the bills were always paid & they did not want to have to buy out the contract.. Limbaugh's content appears dated and unappealing to large urban audiences now but Rush Limbaugh had a devoted following in earlier eras. In Trump's State of the Union Address Trump used a dying man to mine votes from Rush's remaining segment of Racist, Homophobic, Anti-Semitic & Sexist listeners. Young voters would not recognize Limbaugh's name. He is dying of Cancer but determined to spend his last hours on the air in a reunion with whatever loyal followers remain.

  9. Trump violated federal law when he fired Lt. Col. Vindman and Amb. Sondland in retaliation for obeying their subpoenas and testifying in the impeachment hearings. That's a good enough reason for impeachment number two.

  11. A group of Republican senators attempted to stop President Trump from ousting U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland this week, though the president removed the now-former diplomat from his post anyway, sources told The New York Times.

    According to the paper's sources, the group of GOP senators – Susan Collins (Maine), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Martha McSally (Ariz.) and Ron Johnson (Wisc.) – thought the ousting of Sondland would look bad, especially since he was already in talks senior officials about leaving his post after the conclusion of the Senate impeachment trial.

    However, on Friday, State Department officials informed Sondland that he needed to resign by the end of the day.

    Sondland pushed back, reportedly saying that if they wanted him gone on Friday, they would have to remove him. The president then recalled him from his post, effective immediately the newspaper reported.

    The announcement of Sondland's ouster came just hours after National Security Council aide Lt. Col. Alexander S. Vindman and his twin brother were removed from their posts..........................

    Trump made an ass of each of the GOP Senators mentioned above. Guess he doesn't need them anymore.

  14. Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 of the US Constitution is remarkably straightforward: “The executive power shall be vested in a president of the United States of America.”

    The President, and the President alone, is completely in charge of everything inside the executive branch which includes the military. He reassigned the Vindman twins out of the White House. If he wanted to he could court martial Vindman for insubordination and through him out of the military. It was Vindman who leaked secret information to the "whistleblower" and so Vindman could also be prosecuted for leaking. He should be.

  21. I'd like him to be quickly impeached again for accepting bribes and violating the emoluments clause. Domestic & foreign lobbyists are directly giving President Trump money by renting his hotel suites and joining his private clubs. Trump is so brazen in this corruption that many just assume it's OK. But he's not transparent and ended Obama's White House Visitor's Log.
