Former Republican judge calls for Donald Trump to be 'impeached and removed with all haste'

Post by Sassy on Thu Feb 16, 2017 2:23 pm

Less than a month since Donald Trump took office, a former Republican judge is calling for the US president to be hastily impeached.

Writing for Cincinnati.com, Mark P Painter, a former Ohio Court of Appeals Judge, has offered to help his congressman Representative Steve Chabot draft the articles for impeachment.

"In any time except our post-factual era, no office holder, much less the president, could get away with any one of the dozens of dazzlingly illegal things Trump has already done. They would forfeit office immediately," Mr Painter wrote.

He added: "Who knows what happens next. Each new day is a new nightmare.

"We are still trying to digest one breathtaking assault on America when another is signed, issued, or Tweeted. All this amid constant lies. Constant. Lies."

If only, it seems like every day brings a new Trump nightmare.

It wont be before time, and I honestly dont think he will survive the summer.
Totally unsure what the protocol is if he is impeached or resigns, I guess Pense would take over. But would there need to be another election?

Ford took over from Nixon (he was Vice Pres) for 3 years. Don't think people would be happy with Pence doing the same.
