Despite the public furor surrounding James Comey’s Senate testimony, there remains only one certainty about the future of the Trump administration: the president will not be forced from office through the Constitutional impeachment process. Pundits and politicos who agitate for using that mechanism to end the Age of Trump ignore history, delude themselves and damage the country.

Only three presidents of the prior 44 have faced serious drives for their impeachment:

Andrew Johnson in 1868, Richard Nixon in 1974 and Bill Clinton in 1998. All three confronted an awkward political reality that left them vulnerable to the opposition party, with the president’s bitter enemies controlling both houses of Congress.

This meant that critics of the chief executive could get a majority of the House of Representatives to vote articles of impeachment on a strictly partisan basis, with no reliance on defectors from the president’s own party. That’s precisely what occurred for Johnson and Clinton, and was about to happen with Nixon when he short-circuited the process by resigning his office….  Read the full column at USATODAY.COM

    I have never been a fan of Trump as many here would know, but I am a stickler for fairness and I hate bullies. What the Dems and the media has done with this "investigation" makes my blood boil. They have managed to do what no PR could ever do, create empathy for Donald Trump. Talk about losers.

    Comey cannot be trusted
    He is a snake. I predict we will learn a lot more about him down the road. This may backfire on him!!

    There was a time when Michael was equally confident Trump would never be sitting in the White House.

    The error by Michael is that Mueller should stay on. He is legally not qualified per the statute due to conflict of interest.
