32. I think no matter WHAT the conclusions of the report, he should be impeached.

He's done numerous things unbecoming of elected officials: He's compromised our security, he's tried an end-run around Congressional oversight with his border wall funding. He overruled experts and demanded security clearances for his kids who use unsecured apps to discuss issues of national security. He's undone decades of safety and conservation measures. He's refused to show his tax returns. He's been a general asshole to prominent people in his rallies and online. He's ignored and undone Russian sanctions that were passed. He unilaterally and unexpectedly tried to ban Muslims from flying to the US and transgender people from serving the military. He wastes millions of dollars flying to his private hotel. He's making or attempting to make money using his political status. He refuses to follow protocol and has private meetings with Putin and Kim that nobody - even officials - is allowed to be privy to on the official record. He has said things that put people in serious danger - IC assets, a WaPo reporter, Ilhan Omar... And he calls our Free Press "the enemy of the people." He's lost hundreds of staffers due to his incompetence and/or crooked dealings. He's vindictive, petty, and does not in any way represent the leader we'd like to present as our figurehead to the rest of the world.

On top of all that, his behavior prompted an entire Special Counsel investigation that lasted two years and convicted numerous people he associated with during the election campaign. No matter what the findings, this is the kind of stuff that gets you fired from a job during your probationary period.

Just that whole fucking GoT "Game Over" tweet is just maddening. President Clinton was impeached and let things take their course. He never issued a press release after the impeachment saying "Ha ha, I'm exonerated, No Blowjob, you lunatic righties!" Our president is an asshole and an embarrassment who has no qualms about wrecking things to suit his whims. He can't even close his own fucking umbrella.

We need to investigate this stuff. Impeachment isn't conviction; Impeachment is drawing aside the flag-printed curtain that President Donald J. "I'm fucked" Trump likes to wrap himself in and scream that it's a bulletproof shield and insist nobody can touch him.
