The Second Impeachment

UH, yup!

Obstruction of justice

Here are some that are still within the legal time frame!

  1. “Conduct involving FBI Director Comey and Michael Flynn”
  2. “The President’s reaction to the continuing Russia investigation”
  3. “The President’s termination of Comey”
  4. “The appointment of a Special Counsel and efforts to remove him”
  5. “Efforts to curtail the Special Counsel’s investigation”
  6. “Efforts to prevent public disclosure of evidence”
  7. “Further efforts to have the Attorney General take control of the investigation”
  8. “Efforts to have McGahn deny that the President had ordered him to have the Special Counsel removed”
  9. “Conduct toward Flynn, [Paul] Manafort, [REDACTED]”
  10. “Conduct involving Michael Cohen”

Bribery

This would be about Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asking for a “favor” in the form of finding dirt on a political opponent, Joe Biden. There are several other suspected bribes, but this is the one where he was impeached by the House, but found guilty by the Senate. So is still viable. So since the House’s findings did not limit his freedom!

Conspiracy to defraud the United States

 

This occurs when individuals agree to obstruct the work of a federal agency. If members of the Trump administration sabotaged the U.S. Postal Service to influence the outcome of the 2020 election, this charge could be considered for anyone who conspired to achieve the illegal objective, even those who took no personal action.

Campaign finance violations

 

Cohen set up a shell corporation to make a $130,000 payment to prevent Daniels from making public statements that would harm the Trump’s candidacy. As stated in court documents in Cohen’s case, the payments assisted the campaign by preventing the publication of negative stories about candidate Trump that

might influence the election. His payment exceeded the legal limit of $2,700 for campaign contributions and violated the law prohibiting corporate contributions. The government stated that Cohen “acted in coordination with and at the direction of Individual-1” — identified as someone who ran “an ultimately successful campaign for President of the United States.”

The following cannot be included in impeachment as they are;

Pre-presidency crimes

 

Trump  consistently over valued his properties to gain access to loans. Then undervalued those same properties when it came time to pay taxes! He is currently being investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney!  Potential crimes include bank, insurance and tax fraud; money laundering; and preparing false business records.

Crimes for another day?

 

Mueller, because Justice Department policy prohibited him from filing charges against a sitting president, did file any! He made clear, however, that his report was intended to “preserve the evidence” obtained in his investigation because “a President does not have immunity after he leaves office.” Trump mutilated the truth when speaking about the fact no charges were filed, and just pretended the preserve the evidence part didn’t exist!

  1. Trump is guilty of so much. It’s hard to believe, anyone would have trouble convicting him of something.
