38. If we don't impose limits on him now through the impeachment process,

then, even if we vote him out next election, good luck with the next R president, or R controlled House or Senate. The R's will know for certain that they can get away with ANYTHING, and that NO ONE will even bother with trying to impose any limits on them. We will have one large, powerful party that knows it doesn't live under the rule of law, and will be operating without breaks.

Call me crazy, but I don't think that would be a healthy thing for our country or our democracy.

A serious problem is "if" he were impeached and not removed, and as usual the senate does RKP5637 Jun 2019 #5
why would he be emboldened? All of his crimes will have been laid out for everyone to see ProfessorPlum Jun 2019 #6
