I helped draft Clintons impeachment articles

The charges against Trump are more serious
By Bob Inglis
June 13 at 3:10 PM

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) asserted last week that if the president were a Democrat, the House wouldnít be pursing impeachment. He must know thatís not true.

If FBI Director James B. Comey had angered a President Hillary Clinton by restarting the investigation into her private email server and she had fired him, Republicans would be howling. Rightly so.

Instead, Donald Trump won the election. Comey was pursuing an investigation into Russian meddling. It angered President Trump, and he fired Comey. But rather than howling, Republicans are whimpering. The chair of the Republican National Committee has even called for a halt to all investigations of collusion with Russia. Thatís a problem ...

Confronting Trump will take more courage than it took when Republicans told President Richard Nixon that it was time for him to leave office. Not that Trump is more imposing than Nixon; Nixon was a serious president with significant accomplishments. The difference, now, is the presence of sycophantic media ...

2. Another major difference is that Republicans have a majority in both houses.

That is the most significant difference.

4. And against Sessions.

The chief law enforcement guy lied under oath, doesn't know the legal policy that "prevents" him from talking, and didn't show the slightest interest in the security breach our country faced and faces.

I guess as long as the hackers didn't smoke pot, there's nothing to worry about.

11. Just to make my

...reference clear. Sessions once said he stopped liking the Klan when he learned they smoked pot. Or some paraphrase thereof.

7. Well Inglis maybe you should keep shit like this in perspective, Bill got a BJ.

Not again the law. Bill was smarter than all the Rethugs in Congress combined. Again, not against the law.

The Traitor spoiling the WH and Oval Office has colluded with Russia, he has lied every day about his involvement in his dealing with Russian banks, his immoral fiber of his being, his ignorance, he allowed Russia to get their tentacles into our election process.

Ya' think this may be worse???? Such 20/20 hindsight there pal.

13. Uh, not quite

Sex was not the charge against Clinton; the charge was for lying to a grand jury about it.
Inglis is a good guy. Lost his primary years ago 2-1 because he wasn't willing to toe the Tea Party line. Since then his emphasis has been on climate change and what the government's response to it should be.

8. Of course they are more serious!!!

Bill lied under oath about a few BJs that were of no concern to anyone other than to his wife. Trump lied about committing treason by colluding with the Russians to affect the results of a presidential election.

12. Gosh! Really? Lying about an affair between mutually consenting adults is not as bad as...

...obstruction of justice, money laundering, election tampering, conspiring against the US with a hostile nation, lying under oath, and who knows what else?

14. Then will they stop trying to go after the Democratic CANDIDATE when they need to distract from thei

r own problems? They were already ready to impeach Hillary if she won the election, so we should totally believe that they wouldn't try if she was openly bragging about sharing classified intelligence with Russia or urging a foreign country to hack our elections?
