A higher percentage of Americans want Trump impeached than wanted to impeach Richard Nixon.

Courtesy of The Hill: 

Impeaching President Trump is more popular now than impeaching President Richard Nixon was at the start of the Watergate scandal, according to a Monmouth University poll. 

The poll, released Monday, found 41 percent of Americans support impeachment for Trump. In comparison, 26 percent supported Nixon’s impeachment six months into his second term, as the Watergate scandal was breaking. 

Monmouth University Polling Institute director Patrick Murray said the higher percentage of Americans wanting impeachment is caused by “the current epidemic of hyper-partisanship that was simply not prevalent forty years ago.”

Yeah right.

Or it could simply be that Richard Nixon was at least qualified for the job, while more Americans agree that Trump is too unqualified, unprincipled, and undisciplined to carry out the responsibilities of president.

    Why the use of "epidemic," as in disease? Perhaps more people are simply opening their eyes.....

    It's a little like comparing apples to oranges except in the comparison of Nixon and Trump it's more like comparing apples to a steaming pile of dog shit on the sidewalk.

      a 'Rotten apple'!

  4. Nixon's resignation was the beginning of the ugly wingnut partisanship. They bided their time and when they got control of Congress in 94, they went after Clinton and said it was payback for Nixon.

    Nixon's potential impeachment was a bi-partisan affair. Wingnuts joined in with Dems to call for his ouster. Clinton and Obama's troubles with partisan wingnuts was ALL partisanship.

    House Dems question Ivanka Trump’s security clearance

    A group of House Democrats want to know if first daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump concealed knowledge of her husband’s meetings with Russian officials when she was applying for a security clearance.

    The lawmakers are asking the FBI to conduct a review of whether President Trump's older daughter omitted information from her security clearance application when she joined the administration as an unpaid White House adviser.

    The security clearance forms ask whether applicants or any member of their immediate families in the past seven years had any contact with a foreign government or its representatives. Deliberately omitting facts can result in up to five years in prison....

    Reports emerged last week that Ivanka’s brother,Donald Trump Jr., and her husband, now-White House adviser Jared Kushner, met with a Russian lawyer claiming to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton during last year’s campaign....

    The lawmakers questioned whether Ivanka Trump disclosed her husband’s meetings with the Russians or if she accurately provided information about her own foreign contacts.

    “We are concerned that Ivanka Trump may have engaged in similar deception,” the letter states. “The high standard to which we hold public servants, particularly senior advisers to the President of the United States, requires that these questions be raised, and promptly answered.” ...

    The difference between now and then is the internet. Today we share the most intimate parts of our life, when we laugh, fart, eat and sleep. Everyone has an opinion and they share it by the tweety second 24/7 365. We did not have that in the 70's. We debated, protested, compromised and spoke up.
    This is beyond lying about secret tapes or sex set ups by hired horny interns. This is about global dictators, power and money. Putting sanctions have worked to extent but it is clear evil must be removed from power and global influence. Majority want peace. Majority want education. Majority want health and happiness. And Majority want freedom from hateful dictators. America is the light and beacon of Hope for Humanity around the world. We must not allow nasty dirty liars and dictators to tarnish our light.

    So Donnie had an hour long meeting with Putin at a G20 dinnersith only Putin's translator present. No readout was provided to the press, it wasn't even acknowledged by the White House til they were pressed on it. Now trump is calling it fake news. Another undisclosed meeting with the Russians, seems like we have been here before. Reagan is doing summersaults in his grave. If the meeting was so innocent, why was it not disclosed?

    1. Anonymous6:31 AM

      Was Melania also there with Vlad and Donnie? Vlad and Melania both speak several languages, perhaps she could help translate for her hubby if Vlad was speaking Serbian.

      She is fluent in Slovenian, English, French, Serbian, Italian and German. She has multiple business ventures.

      Melania Trump: 23 things you may not know about the First Lady. She grew up in communist Yugoslavia and speaks five languages. Slovene, English, French, Serbian and German, if you want to know. That linguistic prowess could come in handy at White House functions

      She has a secret half-brother, Denis Cigelnjak. Melania initially said the reports were false but later, confronted with court documents, claimed she had misunderstood the question and had known about her half-brother "for years".
      She is the only first lady to have posed nude
      She sued the Daily Mail for reporting on escort allegations
      She is at her best outside the US
      She is becoming America's "mom-in-chief"
      She just moved into the White House - nearly five months after Donald
      Rumours continue to circulate about her marriage. According to US Weekly an "insider" has told the magazine that Melania and her husband do not share a bed.
      She supports her husband's hardline stance on immigration
      But she does wish Donald would 'act more presidential'
      She is raising her son as 'Little Donald'
      She said she wants to use her position as First Lady to make money
      She was the subject of a creepy call with Howard Stern

      She qualifies as her husbands best translator

      Who is Melania?

    3. Melania will *NEVER* be "Mom-in-Chief", that will always belong to Michelle Obama.

    Actually, it is a valid question. Did Ivanka know about these 100+ contacts of her husband with these foreign nationals or not, and was she truthful in answering that question of her husband's contacts when she applied for her security clearance with the FBI?

    It might be inconvenient for Ivanka and her father the President, but it certainly is not out of line

    The President helped build a hotel in Azerbaijan that appears to be a corrupt operation engineered by oligarchs tied to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

    Ivanka Trump was personally on the project, where the construction companies were paid in cash and the hotel was never opened and the owner was the most corrupt person in the country. It stinks of money laundering. On the tower is T-R-U-M-P

    Why all the appointments and security clearances for close family members who have prior Trump family business with Russia? Ivanka and Jared have no skill set that makes them useful in the WH. In any competitive hiring process, they would not be hired. Any decent President would separate his family life from his sensitive information if under a cloud suspicion over possible involvement with a foreign adversary. Not to mention nepotism

    Ratings for US Women's Open at Trump course slump

    By Eugene Scott, CNN 

    Updated 9:16 AM EDT, Wed July 19, 2017

    (CNN)The United States Golf Association expressed great excitement that the US Women's Open was taking place at the Trump National Golf Club. But the event, which President Donald Trump attended, ended up being a TV ratings disaster for the organization.

    The biggest event in women's golf, which ended Sunday, was held at the President's club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

    But like the President's approval ratings, interest in the tournament was at historic lows...

    Sports Media Watch reported that Sunday ratings for the U.S. Women's Open were down 40 percent from last year, giving it the lowest overnight final-round ratings since at least 1996. This was the first time in 15 years that the US Women's Open won't be among the most watched women's golf events of the year, according to Sports Media Watch, which covers TV ratings.....

    1. If they wanted better ratings, they should have chosen a better venue.

    I want Trump tried for treason and put away for life or whatever. He is horrid for our nation and the world. Deplorable as they come. Plus, he's far worse than Nixon ever thought of being!

    I wonder what would happen if the people who make those decisions decided that, in order to protect the safety of our country, they needed to take away the President's security clearance.

    How would a President without security clearance function? (Not that he's actually functioning like a real president anyway!)

  15. Anonymous8:07 AM

    Our country's safety is gone. How can anybody believe or trust that Trump, Trump Jr, Jared and President Bannon would take our Top Secrets to their graves.

    Trump thinks it makes him look important divulging our secrets, especially telling the world where our nuclear submarines are.

    Jr and Jared already lost our trust. Jared couldn't wait to have his own secured connection to the Kremlin and Jr can't help but lie to America. He shares his father's name and lying blood DNA.

    Another person to add to the list is Eric. He already knows what daddy and JR knows.

    President Bannon, what can we say that is positive about that racist weasel?

    Being the wife to our first traitor in Trump's administration , I would have to add Ivanka to my list. However, if daddy did do something to her behind closed doors, she has been able to those secrets.

    I only listed the Trumps and Kushners, there's more in Trump's administration but I don't have time.

    President Trump is the people's president. After losing all those Trumpcare Revisions, he is renting buses to bring the Democrats and Republicans to the White House so they can bond together and come up with a healthcare plan that is good for America. President Trump is showing he is not stupidly stubborn, hold grudges and can cross party lines for our good.

    What? What do you mean that a$$wipe only invited the Republican Party to scheme again behind the White House closed doors? He wouldn't do that to us.

    Trump doesn't like to lose they say. He always wants to be the winningest. I was wondering how this latest defeat would feel for him as a narcissist. A case, I've read, that he has in spades. Worst than Palins.
    The troubling aspect of all of this is that no matter how much bad he does that should have had him ousted our of the White House months ago, he's still there.
    The so called politicians in the Washington haven't called him on any of his atrocities. I think there is also collusion in our government.
    According to Rachel Maddox, Trump has already stared to fulfill Putin's wishlist. And noone ain't sayin' a thing. Why? I think Republicans are more Russian than they realize.
    Only there's one flaw. As an American you can brag all that you want about how you and Vlad have the same ideology. But it ain't true. As an American you'd be willing just to sell but Putin at this point is doing the buying.
    That's the worry.
    People are trying to normalize Putin. Ask his victims. Is Putin not a threat? Is Putin just an innocent bystander? Will he not "off" you if you marred his plans for world dominance or whatever the man wants?
    I am betting those that stood in Putin's way are not here to talk about it nor will those that stand in his way now.
    As a country that is supposedly powerful, can someone responsible in the USA find out?
    Or has the press and people always had to hold those in power to task? If so, why in the hell do we need them in Washington.
    Also, the Washington swamp does still need to be drained. Donald must go with it. We've had enough of greedy, grasping old white men trying to take care of them, themselves, and theirs. This is a country meant for many people. Not the elite few.
    Whatever common man who ever thought Donald would be a man of the people is fooled.
