    I’ve got an idea. Let’s let all the voters decide. Minus gerrymandering. With reasonable access to the vote for all citizens. Oh, and with an agreement among the states to make the electoral college actually reflect the voters’ will.

    Let’s have a Bok-anal-ia, where we can celebrate how the VOTERS chose Hillary while a cabal in the electoral “college” gave the office to Trump.

    We didn’t let the voters decide last time, why would you think they’d suddenly allow it this time?

    More to the point, why the hell do you think letting the voters decide would help Individual 1?

    Not to mention the fact that voting is not how the justice system deals with criminals.

    I’m sorry, does your edition of the Constitution say, “If the president is suspected of treason, bribery, or other high crimes or misdemeanors, just wait a year or more until the next election, that’ll fix it”?

    Let’s just wait for the Rump to shoot someone on fifth avenue and see if he will be voted back.

    Chip, why not let the impeachment process continue AS SPECIFIED IN THE CONSTITUTION?

    Why not hold YOUR GUY accountable for all the crimes he has committed?

    While you’re at it, please explain why you want Ukraine to again be ruled by a Putin puppet government.

    Why not let the voters decide. Because Donnie has been, with the GOP’s blessing, breaking innumerable laws throughout his first term. He should be in the slammer, not campaigning for the highest elected position in our government. (Epic eye-roll)

    Because the electorate is not qualified and does not have the security clearance to understand the depth of Trump’s crimes. Maybe we should just let the electorate update the constitution while we’re at it. Those in favor of amending the 2nd commandment, tick the box….

    Yes, CBok, let’s just ignore the Constitution and the House’s oversight role over a renegade/rogue president. The obstruction of justice, treason, emolluents violations etc. he supposedly committed were minor, not rising to the level of impeachable offenses. Besides, that was just Hair Groppenfuror acting and talking the way he always has, those acts were just in keeping with Donnie being Donnie…/s

    Simple really, by NOT having an impeachment inquiry, would be tantamount to ‘rewarding bad behaviour’.

    Trump abused his power. That is a horrible precedent to set for the future. What if Trump decides to use the IRS or the FBI to investigate you just because he doesn’t like you? Are you okay with that? Presidents have a lot of power. We have to make sure they don’t abuse it.

    The voters did.. by a wide margin but the Electoral College thing defeated democracy. No reason to think it wont happen again.. or the voting machines are rigged.. trump and his team will have had 4 years to refine the cheating.

    Just saying, the constitution includes impeachment for a reason. It also puts the power of impeachment in the hands of the House. People voted for the House which is running the impeachment inquiry. Ergo, Voters DID decide Trump’s fate.

    For those like Bok who are willfully ignorant, the bipartisan Senate Intelligence committee, every intelligence agency, and as extensively documented in the Mueller report, Putin interfered in the 2016 election is planning to do so again in 2020. The response by trump, Moscow Mitch, and trump supporters is to let them. So the real question you’re asking is, What’s wrong with treason?

    Just voting him out is not enough. Future Trumps need to understand the man was corrupt and anti-rule of law + anti-Constitution. The impeachment process will prove he broke the law. Won’t change his base = True Believers (by Eric Hoffer). Hopefully will change Independents.

    Because the voters do not decide, the electoral college does.

    Also, no one is above the law. If it was a Democrat breaking the laws trump has, he/she would have been impeached already.

    When Mitch declared that making Election Day a Federal Holiday – i.e. making it easier for people to vote – is nothing more than a “power grab” by the Democrats, any suggestion of “letting the people decide” is a pipe dream.

    Because FATUS committed an impeachable offense and must be removed from office. If Obama had done this, conservatives would be running around, screeching and throwing their feces around like Capuchin monkeys.

    Chip, Trump has already committed crimes. Why should he be left in office to continue to commit MORE crimes? Look at the massive amount of money that is being spent for Trump to play golf at his own properties while pocketing those profits. He violates the emoluments clause daily, does the bidding of Putin and other dictators like Erdogan, and betrays long-term U.S. allies.

    As others here have pointed out, the voters chose HRC. But the cap added to the number in the House combined with the 2 Senators per state have given 3 – 4 times more weight to the votes in some states over others.

    So the right has just stopped pretending and now are literally arguing that Trump IS above the law. That is their last defense… Trump is above the law… no exaggeration… they actually used this defense in a court of law.

    “A U.S. district judge rejected Trump’s argument that a sitting president is immune from all investigation and prosecution in an October 7 ruling, calling the effort to prohibit investigations of the president ‘repugnant.’”

    In order to make an informed decision, voters need to know what President Trump did. Just think of this impeachment as a source of information.

    Funny you should mention it, Chip. That’s actually something of a sore point, and not just with Trump’s history. Republicans keep “winning” even while getting fewer votes from actual citizens, as opposed to the votes of a codged-up “college” of surrogates.

    Besides, drastic redress for abuse of power (which is what politicians in the 18th cent. meant by “high crimes and misdemeanors”) is written into the constitution for a reason, and while I’m sure that a president like Trump was well beyond the founding fathers’ imagining, they did recognize that the wrong person as chief executive could go far to destroy constitutional order altogether and that waiting around for an election might be too late (not to mention the possibility that corrupt power might corrupt elections). And I think it’s fair to say that Trumpy’s threat to the survival of contitutional order is greater by several orders of magnitude than getting B.J. in the oval office.

    That’s like not calling the police and arresting the dangerous criminal you knowingly allowed to move next door just because he is moving away in a few months.

    “Why not let us voters decide?”

    1) Because there’s no Constitutional provision for a ballot to decide whether he’s guilty, only whether to elect him to an office. (In particular, there’s no law to prohibit the election of a convicted criminal, though conviction upon impeachment does carry such a prohibition.)

    2) Ordinarily, an individual accused of a serious crime is kept imprisoned until the jury delivers its verdict (and beyond, if the verdict is “guilty”). In Trump’s case, Chip, would you be okay with that… i.e., Trump in jail until the conclusion of the 2020 election?

    3) That “us voters” in the cartoon stands out. As opposed to all the other voters, Chip?
