It will be a cold day in hell Before he see the inside of a cell His successor will gladly come to his aid And grant him a pardon the very next day In the swamp that he claimed That his admin would drain He'll be freed and welcomed to stay
Is there any conservative value left that Trump won't deface? He just declared National non-Emergency as an attempted run-around Congress. So much for keeping executive power in check. So much for opposing Imperial Presidency.
Forget Russiagate, Trump should be impeached on the 'emergency' alone. In fact, I do not consider him a legitimate leader anymore. He has admitted even, that the whole 'emergency' is to make end-runs around congress control of purse. He is not just a bad president, he is literally a traitor who openly has broken his oath to uphold the Constitution. If the GOP had a lick of principles left, Trump would immediately be impeached and convicted for breaking his oath of office.
If you still support Trump, you cannot call yourself a conservative.

It’s not a theory but a matter of historical record that Vladimir Putin’s Russia hacked American emails and used them to help elect Trump to the presidency.
It’s not a theory but a matter of historical record that agents purporting to represent Putin’s Russia approached the Trump campaign to ask whether help would be welcome, to which Donald Trump Jr. replied, “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”
It’s not a theory but a matter of historical record that Donald Trump publicly welcomed this help: “I love WikiLeaks!”
It’s solid political science that this help from Russia via WikiLeaks was crucial, possibly decisive, toTrump’s success in the Electoral College in November 2016.
