2. An impeachable offense is whatever a majority of the House decides it is at any given moment.

It is a political process. What you ask for does not exist.

4. Here's a list:

https://impeachdonaldtrumpnow.org/case-for-impeachment/

There was also a very good article in the Atlantic a couple of months ago about the importance of starting impeachment proceedings, but it was more of an essay rather than a list of impeachable offenses.

Of course, we'll never know how the public and the Republican senators would react to impeachment unless the House begins hearings. In a formal hearing, the case could be made in an organized and logical manner rather than listening to a bunch of partisan pundits.


here, let me copy the list for it should be good...

1. obstruction of justice;

2. violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause and Domestic Emoluments Clause of the United States Constitution;

3. conspiring with others to: (a) commit crimes against the United States involving the solicitation and intended receipt by the Donald J. Trump campaign of things of value from a foreign government and other foreign nationals; and (b) conceal those violations;

4. advocating illegal violence, giving aid and comfort to white supremacists and neo-Nazis, and undermining constitutional protections of equal protection under the law;

5. abusing the pardon power;

6. recklessly threatening nuclear war against foreign nations, undermining and subverting the essential diplomatic functions and authority of federal agencies, including the United States Department of State, and engaging in other conduct that grossly and wantonly endangers the peace and security of the United States, its people and people of other nations, by heightening the risk of hostilities involving weapons of mass destruction, with reckless disregard for the risk of death and grievous bodily harm;

7. directing or endeavoring to direct law enforcement, including the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to investigate and prosecute political adversaries and others, for improper purposes not justified by any lawful function of his office, thereby eroding the rule of law, undermining the independence of law enforcement from politics, and compromising the constitutional right to due process of law;

8. undermining the freedom of the press;

9. cruelly and unconstitutionally imprisoning children and their families; and

10. making and directing illegal payments to influence the 2016 election.

7. if...

...trump is ever impeached, it will say more about the House than him...

...the Constitution has a remedy for a corrupt, destructive and incompetent president...

...whether impeachment would succeed or not should not deter the House from doing it's Constitutional job to protect and save harmless the United States and it's citizens from a corrupt, destructive and incompetent president...

And now we have "Somebody did Something...",
Take away the white boys guns, somebody defended their life, and they were white.
Have mercy on the islamo filth for they know not what they do.
Lick the anus of the burka crowned queen, unless you are the husband that beats her.

How about you filthy anti-Americans KMA and STFU or pull your best?  Shut up or shoot anus cavity.

This is true. The Constitution specifies grounds for impeachment, but nothing prevents or punished the House for voting for impeachment based on failing to wear non-matching socks. Mad Maxine made that point in some rant months ago. I suspect, though, that Miss Nancy still has sufficient presence of mind to know that a groundless impeachment by the House and a smack-down by the Senate would likely spell ballot box disaster for the Ds in November, 2020.
