    or trying to stack the Supreme Court? Or sending to IRS to fuck with the Philadelphia Inquirer because the owner opposed the new deal?

    JFK and LBJ spied on their political opponents.

    Obama spied on the AP and also reporter’s like James Rosen.

    It goes on and on...all these Presidents should have been impeached for abuse of power.

    Idiot Dems are really going into dangerous territory here, just because they lost in 2016 because they ran a SHIT CANDIDATE.

    THE NEXT DEMOCRAT WHO WINS POTUS NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED. WE WILL FIGURE OUT THE CRIME, BUT THEY MUST BE IMPEACHED TO SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY!!!

    Sadly you are correct. I have been saying that if they impeach him it will change the country for the worse.

    The only thing that might prevent that is a blow out at the ballot box next Nov.

    But I do not want that either as a divided government is the best thing for the country.

    House Republicans gained seats in 98 and 2000. Clintons numbers increased.

    The order most certainly should have been overturned by the courts.

    In times of war though we grow cowardly and become afraid to question the government and it's actions.

    It's why there has been wars for most of the existence of the U.S.

    What is the usual punishment for lying to a Grand Jury?

    After Pearl Harbor, the US was in a panic

    Very few, including the Supreme Court, objected to interring Japanese

    We had to protect ourselves from spies and sabotage

    I forgot, Lincoln jailed journalists and shut down 300 newspapers.

    Abuse of power?

    Lincoln and FDR were the real tyrants and abusers of power.
