82497 Trump impeachement... pending
What exactly is it that the man needs to do to get impeached? There seems to be a scandal that would damn any other leader every week.

In this age of pure partisanship? Lose the House. Which won't happen because the Republicans have rigged it that way. Their democracy is long dead. The representatives get to choose their voters rather than the other way round.

Disclosing information is so small-time. The President The Donald doesn't do small-time. If he's going to disclose anything, he's going to go big. He wouldn't tell anyone anything without telling them where he heard it, like "I heard on Fox News", "I read on Breitbart" or "Israel gave us this intelligence in confidence but I can trust you, right Sergei?"

Too many people in both chambers owe him their livelihood. Some in the Senate may be brave enough, since the next tranche is Democrat-heavy, and those up for election in 2020 may want someone else that the top of the ticket. But there are a whole bunch elected last year who will be up in 2022 who wouldn't be there were it not for him. If they're going to move against him it'll be sooner rather than later so that people have time to forget, assuming a barrage of 3am tweets doesn't sear their betrayal permanently into their voters' consciousness.

Before it gets to the Senate, it needs to pass the House, and there are anything up to 40 there who owe him their seats, and they're all up for election every two years anyway.

The whole party knows they're beholden to him, and he knows it. He even made party chair Reince Priebus his bitch. It will take an astonishing act of bravery for enough to back the motion, and Paul Ryan would have to let it come to the floor. It's also worth remembering that both sides will be well aware that if Trump is ousted, then the job falls to Mike Pence.

Is that the sole reason he put him on his vice president ticket? Insurance?

I have to give it to him. He may seems like a moron but he is actually quite clever.

Trump polled quite badly amongst traditional conservative Christian republicans. He isn't very religious (probably atheist or agnostic) and is socially liberal. A number of churches opposed his candidacy. Pence was selected primarily to appease those voters.

But it's not just scandal is it, it needs to be an impeachable offence that can stand up in court. So what has he done that he can definitely be prosecuted for?

You haven't quite grasped how this works. Let me translate some of those terms for you:

>impeachable offence
Anything that will pass the House by simple majority.

>can stand up in court
Senators can bring themselves to vote for it.

While the Supreme Court haven't entirely ruled it out, they have declined to hear every appeal against impeachment that has been put to them, and if one takes the Constitution at its face then there is no right of appeal against conviction. However, to convict requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate and, unlike the filibuster, it's not a procedural rule but mandated by the Constitution.

Well I'm glad they settled that for us.

Yeah, but even after 6 months of harping on about Trump/Russia they'll carry on doing it and people will carry on believing it's true.

This. It's just like Jimmy Savile. Years after his death people keep harping on about him supposedly being a kiddy fiddler even though he said he couldn't have done it because he didn't like kids.

To clarify, by people, you mean multiple intelligence services right?
