At what point do we hold the guy accountable?

We all know he sought and received Russian help.

And now he openly admits he is using the Office to blackmail the Ukrainians into making up crap against a political opponent during an election year.

Completely unprecedented. This is the exact scenario that the Founders envisioned: A POTUS abusing his power in a flagrant manner.

If the evidence is clear, and the GOP doesn't act, it is time we reconsider the nature of this Republic.
If people want to hold him accountable they will have to do it at the ballot box. Chances are the House will not impeach him, and even if they do, we all know it is dead on arrival in the Senate. Doing this will help Trump more than it will hurt him.

I think it is. I personally think this is politically motivated. If the Democrats really thought they could beat Trump in 14 months they would not be worrying about this. I think part of the reason they want to start now, is that the economy is not going south, like the Dems had hoped, so are looking for anything to try and stop Trump.

At the end of the day, if they find credible evidence against Trump he deserves to be kicked out. But I think this is 100% political and hope the more shit they throw against the wall something will stick.
Whether it is politically motived or not is irrelevant.

The pertinent thing here is it either happened or it didn't.

If it did, there is no choice here. It is clear. Otherwise, we're throwing this Republic out the window.

The election is not the proper way to handle a POTUS that has clearly violated the law.

If this form of government is to stay credible, and Trump did what they say he did, it needs to be done.

If the GOP lets him get away with it it is time to start considering a new constitution.

You know Con Law and you know what I am saying is true.

Biden admitted to this

“I said: ‘We’re leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor’s not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.”
Well shit, if they can indict Biden too then do it.

Actually, the issue is it doesn't matter if Biden is guilty or not.

It is what POTUS did.

It fitting that none of his supporters have addressed the merits of the actual case:

Instead whattaboutism, its a conspiracy and it isn't a problem.

If it happened, what are your positions?

I agree. If he did it should be punished. But still feel part of the reason he is being looked into is because of it being political.

The Dems just could not keep thier finger off that button.. it's a text book way to lose the election..Joe Biden will be smeared, and that leaves Warren. Warren proposes to tax the shit out of the rich and corporations.. That is the best case scenario for Trump..

There is nothing clear about the whistleblower report until it is released without redaction.. plus you have the Fisa thing.

As for the economy, we have had some panic mongering around the short term interest rates, and liquidity. Lots of economists predicting a recession in 2020.. What is different is that we have full employment. The economy would have to go pretty far south to fuck that up. A deal with China would hurt that.. So we shall see..
Please explain why it's a textbook way to lose an election?

The only example we have in modern history was bill Clinton one of the most liked presidents in the last 50 years. And he was charged with pergery, which comes no where close to high crimes and misdemeanors all because he got a blow job

He is the POTUS.

Everything he does is monitored and for public record.

Should they just ignore it when it presented itself. And Trump and Guiliani more or less confirmed it happened?

It’s hard to tell if there is merit, when there is so much political bias.

Punished, as in removed from office, correct?

And yes this is in fact a political matter. Being as the president may have violated a written reason in the Constitution he should be removed from office. How is that not political

No. But you can you look into without going through the media and making it political.
