To Fox News, Don Jr, and all the "journalists" out there carrying the line that the impeachment hearings were "boring": He'll never love you. When the time comes, he'll step right on your face to reach his getaway helicopter.

If you’re more upset by me stating my opinion about impeachment than you are with the GOP for covering up Trump bribing Ukraine for personal gain, then you’re part of the problem.

I mean...you just are. That is all. Full stop. Please do a deep dive into your own being. It’s you.

Everything from #ImpeachmentHearings so far is clear, credible evidence of impeachable offenses.

Trump leveraged foreign aid to bribe another government into attacking the 2020 election.

Call your Senators. Tell them to watch, and hold him accountable. https://t.co/u0phUMD36m

Bribery is specifically listed in the Constitution as an Impeachable offense. For Republicans claiming Trump has done nothing Impeachable, the Constitution must be incredibly annoying.

Impeachment Fun Facts

. Impeachment is a political recourse, not a legal recourse

. The House votes to Impeach. A simple majority 51% is all it takes to send the article(s) of impeachment to the Senate for a trial. Democrats have enough votes without bipartisan support.

. The Senate holds the trial to Remove. A 2/3rd super majority is required to Remove a President from office. It would take ~20 Republicans to break ranks. Public opinion as hearings progress will influence how the House and Senate votes.

. The House can vote to Impeach on some or all articles but the Senate still acquit. It can’t be reversed, and still goes on permanent record until the earth no longer exists. Votes for or against will be used in campaigns for 2020 election.

. Nixon was never Impeached. He resigned before the articles of Impeachment were put to House floor vote. VP Ford became President, and the next election saw a significant shift of Dems winning seats plus Carter won the next election.

. Clinton was Impeached by the House but acquitted by the Senate. His approval rating went up. Despite Gore winning the popular vote, Bush43 was appointed President by the Supreme Court after the contested battle of electoral votes in Florida, because ~Florida.
