Because I don't.

I just wondered. Clearly there's no comparison in substance - Clinton was accused of lying under oath about his personal sex life, which in no way related to his presidential oath, nor financial schemes, nor power grabbing (just girl-grabbing), nor reflected in any way on the country - while Trump's situation may involve having committed a range of illegal acts - illegal hush-money, violation of the emoluments clause, obstruction of justice, etc.

But I was wondering if it began in the same way, with a preliminary vote in the House, for instance.

I guess with Nixon, he left before anything began?

Trump taught us that you're allowed to lie to the American people...as long as you support the right ideology and agenda.

Sex with a White House intern is not personal.

You don't think lying under oath is related to his presidential oath?

Seriously?

I recall both the Nixon and Clinton impeachment proceedings. Of course, Nixon resigned before the ball go rolling (I was a firm Nixon supporter, until the 'smoking gun' tapes were released). As for Clinton, I could not believe that it made it to the Senate for trial. Yes, he lied under oath about his relationship with Ms. Lewinsky, but to equate that to 'high crimes and misdemeanors"?


Of course, they say that impeachment is a political animal, which I'm sure is correct. If the Democrats controlled the Senate, then President Trump would be gone.

There is no comparison because there is no Trump impeachment proceeding to compare to Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
