IMPEACHMENT: "Under Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, a President can be impeached upon the 'Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High crimes and Misdemeanors.'… That means Trump can’t be impeached just because all of a sudden Republicans turn against him or because they think he is “unfit” for office… Some constitutional experts contend that Trump’s business entanglements may amount to a violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Emoluments clause, which prohibits federal officials from receiving gifts from foreign states without the consent of Congress. “No prior president has come anywhere close to Mr. Trump in the scale of possible violations,” a recent article published by Constitutional experts for the Brookings Institute states. The experts are particularly concerned with Trump’s hotel in Washington D.C. where foreign dignitaries might feel pressured to stay… Another possibility of an impeachable offense would play out similarly to what happened with Bill Clinton when he was sued by Paula Jones for sexual harassment while he was President. On Tuesday, former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos filed a defamation lawsuit against Donald Trump claiming that he lied about touching her inappropriately. If she gets to the point, where her attorney, Gloria Allred, is allowed to depose the President, and he lies (and it’s provable), this too could be grounds for impeachment as he would be lying in sworn testimony."
