    Impeachment is a Constitutional process whereby an official of the executive branch or judicial branch can be charged with misconduct such as bribery, treason or other "high crimes and misdemeanors" and may be removed from office. Emperor Trump, who is the target of an impeachment investigation and who knows nothing about the Constitution, calls the process a "coup," a "hoax," a "witch hunt" and, now, a "lynching." Yes, Emperor Trump puts himself in the same category as the 4,743 people, the majority of whom were black, who have been lynched. Welcome to Trumpworld.

    Attorney Gregory Craig led the legal team defending Bill Clinton, who was impeached in December 1998. Craig now has advice for both sides in the 2019 impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump:

    And the damning testimony just keeps on coming.

    Ambassador testifies he was told 'everything' depended on Ukraine announcing investigations
    CNN, Oct 22 2019 3:28 PM ET

    Acting US Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor, testifying today before three House committees, said Gordon Sondland told him President Trump wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to publicly state he would investigate Bursima and the 2016 election in order to provide the Ukrainians with a meeting and security assistance, according to a copy of Taylor's opening statement obtained by CNN.

    "During that phone call Ambassador Sondland told me that President Trump had told him that he wants President Zelensky to state publicly that Ukraine will investigate Burisma and alleged Urkainian interference in the 2016 US election," according to the testimony from earlier today.

    Sondland, US ambassador to the European Union, told Taylor he'd also made a mistake earlier by telling the Ukrainian officials that a White House meeting with Zelensky "was dependent on a public announcement of the investigations." "In fact, Ambassador Sondland said 'everything' was dependent on such an announcement, including security assistance," Taylor testified, adding that Trump wanted Zelensky "in a public box" by making a public statement about ordering the investigations. Democrats described Taylor’s testimony as damning to the President.

    Just as he tried to discredit the Mueller investigation by questioning its legitimacy, calling it a "witch hunt," attacking the credibility of every witness and insisting he's done nothing wrong, Emperor Trump is trying to discredit the impeachment inquiry by questioning its legitimacy, calling it a "witch hunt," attacking the credibility of every witness and insisting he's done nothing wrong. At least Emperor Trump is consistent.

    Taylor named names – and he's one of several diplomats and government officials who have corroborated the whistleblower's report: Emperor Trump withheld Congressionally-approved military aid from Ukraine, then pressured Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden, his potential opponent in 2020. Trump also demanded an investigation of reports that Ukraine is in possession of a DNC server. That is a conspiracy theory which has long since been debunked – "fake news," you could say – but Trump continues to believe it. He repeated it last night on Sean Hannity's Fox News program.

    5 explosive lines from Bill Taylor's 15-page statement
    The diplomat says his office's dealings were constantly undermined by "an irregular, informal channel of US policy-making" led by Rudy Giuliani.

    We all know Emperor Trump continually obstructs justice by trying to interfere with investigations. Today, a large group of Trump's blindly loyal Congressional Republicans decided to do the same, delaying testimony while declaring Trump has done nothing wrong and accusing Democrats of attempting to "overturn" the 2016 election. Can someone please point out to Trump and his deaf-dumb-and-blind toadies that (1) seeking election help from a foreign government is wrong, illegal, an abuse of power and a violation of the oath of office and (2) the impeachment process is clearly spelled out in the United States Constitution?

    The Daily Caller contacted all 53 Republican Senators and only seven said they're opposed to impeaching and ousting President Trump. The other 46 were either noncommittal or did not respond. Hmmm.

    Only 7(!) Republican Senators are ruling out removing Donald Trump
