Response to calimary (Reply #57)

80. Wouldn't have happened.

First, the Senate would not have convicted - it takes 67 votes to convict, and the Republicans would never have voted for it. Even if there was video of W announcing that he was going to lie the country into a war while he was beating a bag of kittens and having sex with an underage male prostitute, the Senate would not have convicted.

Second, Clinton's impeachment means that it would have been treated as "payback". Thus there would be no serious attention paid to the charges.

The betrayal is not investigating W after he left office. The crimes do not disappear when he left office.
