The road to tyranny will be paved by “jokes” about prospective impeachable offenses that turn out not to be jokes.

It’s a clear abuse of power. We know Trump’s pattern. No matter what the issue is, he will always direct people to violate laws and commit crimes of concealment.

This period is the right time to impeach Trump. It takes only about 6 weeks or so to do it, and Dems can get it done well before the first presidential primary and set things up to destroy Trump and the GOP. The people want accountability. The Democrats should use the power that we gave to them and impeach the motherf***er. He’s weak.

PP is trying to get a pile of people to pardon at once to conceal the fact that he is pardoning someone in particular. He’s got pardon on the mind. I’m guessing Stone.

The absolute worst of this piece is the word “joke”.

I couldn’t agree more. Especially with every conservative pundit wondering why “liberals” can’t take jokes. Please let us know in real time which ones are jokes, and which ones aren’t. I truly can’t tell.

I doubt this was a joke and it is not funny. He is a sociopath and could care less about the rule of law.

Maybe because every RWMF “joke” is a variation of either “I fucking hate liberals” or “Liberals fucking suck!” RWMFs think that shit is “funny”; the rational world, on the other hand, does not.

Acid test. Will the word ‘impeach’ appear on the lips of anyone who has the power to instigate it?

Mitch will warble “Ah don’t see an’thin’ wrong” and keep getting fascist judges approved, and close off any chance of impeachment being successful.

MIsprision of a felony. Good thing it’s not lying under oath about a blow job. THAT could lead to impeachment.

tRump has NO sense of humor. This is not a joke. A president indirectly/directly encouraging an official to not follow the law is not holding to his sworn statement to support and defend the Constitution. That, I believe, is a crime.

Nevermind, that doesn’t apply when dealing with invading brown hoards s/

When the boss says something, it’s not a “joke”.

So we’re literally at the “Hey, don’t worry about Nuremburg, I’ll pardon you before they hang you” point.

Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

Someone is surprised?

Like they’ve been in a coma since 2014 and just woke up?

This is incitement to commit a crime, a crime against humanity, no less. How much more of this do we have to bear without consequences for Trump?

Yup, my response was of course he did.

Honestly, until he actually has the border patrol open fire on a group of immigrants attempting illegal entry, with a significant number of wounded and dead women and children, I don’t think anything would happen.

And even that might not move the fucking needle.
