Response to Newest Reality (Reply #31)

33. I am just going to illustrate that...

Of course, correct me if I am wrong, but I will illustrate something and it might be important because it puts the emphasis where it belongs while we consider proving crimes actually committed.

Let's say that Trump ONLY did these things: He always wears a greasy T-shirt, shorts and smells bad. He throws drunken parties in the White House regularly. He swears like a sailor, etc. Now, technically, those are not crimes. He could say it is Executive Privileged to behave in such a way. However, that behavior becomes a challenge to the dignity and decorum of the office and you could get a consensus agreement.

So, even though that scenario is unlikely, (well, Idiocracy illustrated something like that) and Republicans would not care enough to follow though on those grounds, those are just as valid grounds for impeachment as actual crimes committed. It is about more than that.

We probably should shift the narrative a bit to include that this is an act of preservation and protection of the office itself and its meaning to our political system and that may help to assure we accomplish that. It is both patriotic and positive. It means a lot that way.
