    "Congress" has not weaponized the Constitution, Impeachment power, The intelligence agencies and the FISA court. The Democratic leaders of the House did that all on their own. That is the dangerous precedent now set for future Presidents of either Party.

    There’s a bit of difference between a 26 year old having poor judgement in a single situation, as opposed to a 49 year old actively using cocaine, crack and being paid millions because of his vice presidential father. Do the skeletons in your closet, keep you up at night?

    If he is impeached, it will allow democrats to engage in all the influence peddling they want, safe in the knowledge that any suggestion that the influence peddling be investigated is grounds for impeachment.
