The economy would be doing exactly the same if an orangutan was in the Oval Office.

Why did the Republicans do it back in the 1990s to Clinton if the economy is a reason to not call for impeachment....

It is primarily a political move even though Trump does have some offenses outside of lying that could be impeachable. I personally do not support it because I feel it will bolster his appeal for the 2020 election. The Democrats should listen to Pelosi and not have done it.

The economy was going great guns under Clinton. Republican House still impeached him for lying about a consensual blow job.

Republicans were just appalled that the POTUS would lie. The very idea. You can Google some of the clips if you want to see how appalled folks like Lindsay Graham were.


Also need to consider campaign finance laws broken - paying off hush money with personal funds in order to keep women quiet might be considered against the laws.

Good point on Clinton - that's how I remember it. The economy was doing well (but courtesy of the huge defense budget cuts brought about what Reagan did in his administration - with USSR dissolving, we no longer needed to spend as much on defense and could use the funds elsewhere, close bases, etc).

...because everything about this Admin is a lie. The economy of the Republican Party of Un American Activites is strong. . for the rest of the country it isn't.

Clinton was president during the dotcom rush. Coincidence.
Trumps economy is made up.
Numbers are fudged.
Just wait.

If Trump's economy is only good for the "upper class," how come unemployment is so low? Jobs are back, manufacturing is back, and that's good for everyone especially the middle class. And, black unemployment is a historic low. In addition, wages are up. Home ownership is also up.

"Stagnation and decline" is what we had during the Obama years. He said himself, "Those jobs aren't coming back." He said Donald Trump would "need a magic wand." He also said "2.4% GDP was no longer attainable. 1% is the new norm."

Well, I guess Donald Trump found that "magic wand." And we have broken 4.% GDP.

Even Nixon was not stupid enough to proclaim that he shouldn't be impeached for obstruction of justice due to the 'great economy'.

Documents in the Cohen case are ordered to be unsealed by the judge - because they are "a matter of national importance".

Tomorrow.

Here's your high crimes and misdemeanors coming in 3......2.......1.....

misguided lives

Lo unemployment? Lol. Yeah. I have three jobs. So I'm counted as three people working.
Duh . Fake math.

Or the worst case scenario....those who have dropped off the rolls and are now homeless...Trump has the eff ing nerve to claim " record lo unemployment "
