Time to talk Trump impeachment: Jason Sattler, USA Today

"At the Constitutional Convention, James Madison imagined impeachment as a relief from a chief executive who “might lose his capacity after his appointment. He might pervert his administration into a scheme of peculation or oppression. He might betray his trust to foreign powers.”
President Trump might have won Madison’s Triple Crown — in his first few weeks.
This is no exaggeration. The latest but far from only example is the Washington Post report that the White House, having failed to get the FBI director and deputy director to publicly rebut reports about contacts between Trump associates and Russian intelligence operatives before the 2016 election, then enlisted Congress and the intelligence community to knock down stories about the alleged connections.
And the goon squad attempting to limit the president’s PR damage reportedly includes the man Trump picked to lead the CIA and the chairmen of the House and Senate intelligence committees, who were Trump transition advisers and now are the two men most responsible for investigating Trump’s Russia ties."

1. Any talk of impeachment is encouraged

There's so many things that could be used, if only it were possible. I am doubtful it will come to fruition but we can hope.

3. The media needs to continue to hammer this home.

They need to talk about all the laws he has broken and schemes he is still involved with.

5. "Peculation" is a new word for me.

I guess that makes "45" a peculator. Maybe there is a shorter term than that?
