Dem Pledges To Begin Impeachment Process Against Trump

A Democratic lawmaker plans to initiate impeachment proceedings against President-elect Donald Trump as soon as possible, according to a Wednesday interview with The Young Turks.

Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin won election in Maryland’s 8th Congressional District for the first time in 2016, and it appears the former state Senate majority whip wants to make his mark, by impeaching the president-elect. Raskin currently serves as a professor of constitutional law at the American University law school.

“Right now it looks pretty obvious that he’s on a collision course with the Emoluments Clause,” Raskin asserted. “He has refused to divest himself of tens or hundreds of millions of dollars of business interests he has around the world doing business with foreign governments.”

Trump announced in a press conference early January that he planned to cede control of all of this business interests to his two sons, Donald Trump, Jr., and Eric Trump. Ivanka Trump moved to Washington, D.C., with Jared Kushner, who has a place in the White House as a key adviser.

    Good luck with that. Odd how this Constitutional Specialist just couldn’t get his mind wrapped around the unconstitutional acts of O. Hummmm Selective hearing.

      Raskin stands for the same corrupt things the Monkey endorsed. Along with claiming that all public policies should be based on believing the climate change hoax, Congressman Raskin is a member of the following caucuses:
      Congressional Progressive Caucus (Vice Chair and Liaison to New Members)
      Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus
      House Public Education Caucus
      House Pro-Choice Caucus
      Seems the only time people like Soetoro and Raskin pay attention to the Constitution is when they want to twist it out of context, or step on it.

        Well that really explains it. Trump needs to take out Soros for inciting riots and get all these prickly pears out of his way.

  • Bob says:

    Funny how mentioning impeachment when discussing Obama was in office was considered hate speech and/or racist. Why is it changed all the sudden? Obama was using executive orders rather than going through proper channels, yet he was given a pass. And what about Solyndra, a major government bail out and the ties to Obama, if we are talking about business deals? Trump built a company and a brand that is worth billions, and you expect him to give it away at pennies on the dollar? Was Kerry required to give away all his wife’s money when he ran for office? Did Obama receive any royalties from book sales while in office? Why were they not required to give away all that money?

    All of our Enemies foreign or Domestic try to use our generous Freedoms to hit us over the head with them. They only invoke the Constitution when it is to their benefit.

  • texexpatriate says:

    And this fool teaches constitutional law? Jeez!

  • justinwachin says:

    President Trump doesn’t need to be bothered with the Democrat sore losers. I don’t think this congressman has any idea what awaits him if he goes against the Donald.

  • Mys77 says:

    Who elected this idiot low life? Can they impeach this imbecile….Matyland….what were you thinking?

      Like in federal elections where winning CA and NY are NORMALLY enough (except for Hillary and Algore), all it takes to win in MD is Baltimore City and 2 counties, PG and Montgomery, all bastions of liberal excess and/or hand out loving free loaders. All our pols can do here is raise taxes and tell you why you need to pay more. Heck, our state motto is “If you can dream it, we can tax it”.

        Did you notice Al Gore was missing in action at the inauguration? The liberals did not even mention the missing vp, climate weirdo.

  • CHARLIE says:

    The loosers just cant admit defeat. Keep raising your voice and protesting
    to show us just how ignorant you really are, america is watching.

  • Ramon1710 . says:

    Democratic Reprobate Jamie Raskin needs his own recall election.

  • MarcusAurelius45 says:

    Article II, Section 4 of the US Constitution allows the House of Representatives to impeach high federal officials, including the President, for “treason,bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.”

    1. Ramon1710 . says:

      Obama, Clinton, and possibly Bush meet those requirements.
      As a democrat, Raskin is probably just projecting his life experiences on Trump.

        Clinton WAS impeached

        1. Ramon1710 . says:

          Not really. Elitist theatrics, falsely labeled an impeachment.

          There were several items making Clinton worthy of impeachment which the impeachment team was not allowed to address. One of which, Clinton said he wanted dossiers on about 100 of his political enemies, and the FBI had no problem providing him with them (Filegate).

          David Schippers, who was in charge of the investigation, wrote a book called “Sell-out”, regarding the Clinton impeachment farce. Aside from the fact that not one Senator took a copy of the evidence summary to read, and the Prosecution being unable to expand the case beyond Monica Lewinsky (to include Clinton’s more treasonous actions), the following quotes were rather telling:

          From “Sell-out”, a book by Clinton prosecutor David Schippers – Senator Ted Stevens, RINO-Alaska (addressing Schippers): “I don’t care if you prove he raped a woman and then stood up and shot her dead – you are not going to get 67 votes.” p 23 (ie: the majority required for impeachment)

          Chris Cannon, House Rep-Utah: “The whole thing was a farce from the beginning.” p 263

          Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott- RINO (on 2-12-99): “I could have told you what this vote was going to be on January 7th.” p 262

          Senator Joe Biden, D-Deleware: “We make our own rules.” p 17.

          1. Bob says:

            The House did it’s Constitutional duty and held Impeachment hearings on numerous charges. The spineless elitists, fearing loosing power, only sent a couple of the charges to the Senate for hearings on removal. Those spineless elitists, fearing not being invited to cocktail parties in DC, failed to remove him from office. However, the truth is that he WAS impeached by the House, making only the second time in the history of this country that a President was impeached (although neither was removed).

  • Dan says:

    Democrats never quit….They lose fair and square and the first thing they do is go to court, file appeals and disrupt. Seems to me that would make one deplorable.

    1. The Redhawk says:

      No they Remain the same Snafu party controlled by FUBAR Anarchists….Oh well Maryland just may be in need of REAL REFORM and quit electing IDIOTS with PHD with honors in “STUPID”

    I wonder how his constituents like him now that he is ignoring them just so he can get his fifteen minutes of fame.

  • Norman Fox says:

    these asshole dumocrats, snowflakes, wimps and the like are only showing how stupid, uneducated, and dumb they really are. The nation has spoken and it is the Republicans turn to make America Great Again. You are the ones who tore it down with that thing called a president. Remember he started by telling the world the citizens are sorry for being great. Well we are finally rid of such liars, and rift raft. Now they have to go to work as their free meals are going away.
