@RepLarryBucshon What about your politically-motivated defense of Trump? He doesn't believe in any traditional Republican values yet you defend him solely because he ran as a Republican.

He openly asks for foreign influence in our elections. Both in 2016 and 2020.

George Washington warned...
@RepLarryBucshon ...about that.

If Trump were a Democrat you and every @GOP member of Congress would be screaming for his impeachment.

This type of misconduct is exactly what the Founders put impeachment into the Constitution for.

Why don't try at least pretending you care about this country?
@RepLarryBucshon @GOP As for what's an impeachable offense, instead of reading news articles you might try reading other things.

During the Nixon impeachment inquiry the House staff did extensive research on the historical meaning of the phrase "high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

They issued a...
@RepLarryBucshon @GOP ...report (64 pages) back in 1974 that explained the historical meaning and gave details of the 13 impeachments that had occurred by that time. 1 Senator, 9 judges, a Supreme court justice, a President, and a Secretary of War. They were all impeached by the House but all of...
@RepLarryBucshon @GOP ...them weren't convicted in the Senate and removed.

It's an interesting reading, it also goes into the history of the phrase and why it was put in.

@RepLarryBucshon @GOP The Federalist Society also published a good explanation of "high Crimes and Misdemeanors" in the Federalist Society Review Volume 19.

In the 1700s the phrase meant much more than it sounds like reading it today.
