From what I've seen thus far there is not enough evidence to impeach Trump & I'm pretty much what most would call a Trump hater.
    You realize that the current impeachment process started at the same time the Mueller report concluded that there was no "collusion conspiracy" by any American, including any person part of the Trump campaign? One could make the point that the timing wasn't so much based on new evidence but instead when it was time to try something else.

    The reality is that it doesn't require any evidence to impeach a President. Look to the case of Andrew Johnson, impeached ostensibly for his violation of the Tenure of Office Act, even though said act was patently unconstitutional and presumed to create a new power for Congress limiting the ability of the President to fire whom he wanted to. The real reason for the impeachment was that Johnson wanted to quickly reintegrate the Southern States, while the Republican Congress (same party as Johnson) wanted to force a long and painful reconstruction on the South. In any case, not only was the Act unconstitutional, but Johnson never violated it.

    Understand that the U.S. Founders knew that Congress would be corrupt, as they were well experienced with parliamentary systems of government that had preceded them. The checks and balances enshrined in the Constitution were intended to keep the entire Government from being too powerful. The Founders understood that Impeachment had the potential to unbalance the power of the Executive, which is why a super majority is required in the Senate to remove from office. What may not have been envisioned is the use of Impeachment solely as a means to politically damage an officeholder in an effort to influence a future election. Why, because the failure to remove an incumbent can be expected to have far reaching negative consequences for those involved in the failed effort.

    The Democrats' Election Interference Projection
    .
    You know what doesn't pass the smell test in the Democrats' sham impeachment crusade? Their main beef is that President Donald Trump abused his power to interfere with a presidential election (2020), yet that's all they have been doing for the last three years.

    Interference with a presidential election (2016) was also their allegation with the Russia-collusion hoax. Oh, my, how they revere the integrity of the election process.

    Remember Rep. Schiff's endless guarantees that he had irrefutable evidence of Trump's collusion with Russia?

    Well, even the Democrats' would-be savior, former special counsel Robert Mueller, and his team of Trump-hating attorneys, couldn't produce a scintilla of evidence implicating Trump. If Schiff had the goods on Trump, he would have turned them over to Mueller. But nothing came of it, which means that Schiff didn't just make an honest mistake or, in his emotional zeal, overstate his case.

    No, he outright lied. And this isn't a minor fib about a small matter but a major lie about a gravely serious matter. Savor the irony: Schiff brazenly fabricated a tale about having concrete evidence that Trump interfered with an election so that he himself could spearhead the mother of all election-interference capers: undoing Trump's 2016 election and preventing his 2020 reelection.

    Has Schiff been held to account for his lies? To the contrary, he's been rewarded by his co-conspiratorial party with leadership of the latest election interference scheme. Interestingly, this charade began with a so-called whistleblower, who was probably not a whistleblower at all but a Democratic plant in the bowels of the Trump administration as part of another "insurance policy" to undermine the man who was duly elected under our constitutionally prescribed method for electing presidents.

    For all the preening about the integrity of the democratic process from a party that routinely undermines the Constitution and our national sovereignty through judicial activism, lawless executive orders, the administrative state and its open borders policy, couldn't the Democrats even pretend to treat presidential impeachment as mildly serious?

    No, because their concern isn't election interference or respect for the Constitution but regaining power and advancing their leftist agenda at all costs. If they were so dedicated to our democracy, they'd quit exploiting the impeachment clause to reverse the results of an election. They'd stop saying, along with other cynics, that "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors" has no meaning apart from how the House chooses to define it.
