Who cares, it doesn't even matter if he does, this train has left the station. It really isn't about Trump in the wider sense, the right wing populist movements are gaining traction world wide and are recognized on the biggest stage with this win. If he were to get impeached it would only add fuel to the fire and a similar candidate would appear in due time with an even more energized movement. What people should be watching now is how this affects Marine Le Pen, the German AFD, and Austria's upcoming election. I think a lot of people like myself who felt they were accurate with the current state of affairs but not entirely sure just had some real confirmation come through with this vote.

When Obama took office did republicans cry this much and act this crazy no, maybe try to act more mature for starters, this is what the United States has chosen try just try to act more mature.

No, "Let's impeach him on a built-up charge because we don't like him, but he's too popular to kick out, so let's disqualify him on a technicality!" was what Bill Clinton got--
And because he got off, what the Republicans hoped to give to Hillary by obsessively pursuing the E-Mail thing to within an inch of his life.

An impeachment is not necessarily a "removal from office" like Nixon got (which is what the Bill-bashers were hoping for), it's merely that the president is put on trial for an actual offense--In Nixon's case, abuse of power and cover-up, in Bill's case, lying to Congress at a hearing.
It's a removal of office if it's an actual jail offense, like Nixon's, but can also apply to actual Constitutional misuse of the presidential powers, which would necessitate the appropriate punishment.

When people talk about "Trump's impeachment any day now", it's because, c'mon: You KNOW some abuse of power is going to happen the minute things don't go as planned and he doesn't get his way. It's sort of an Inevitable--When, not If, and the When has betting pools open.
As he found out with the "Use of special prosecutor" and "Ordering Pentagon to go after terrorists' families", he's not quite Constitutionally up on What the President Can Do And What He Can't, and he's not that interested in finding out the easy way. So, we just wait for him to find out the Hard Way.

...Saves a lot of trouble of having to do it ourselves, and leaves no one else to blame.

Bruh he is answering her question because she's worried about Trump getting impeached and he's providing examples of precedent for impeachment and what Trump would have to do to get impeached. I don't see how he is being immature?

Because people used the word on HIM. That's the Republican's new post-Trump strategy, you may have noticed, take everyone's mean words and throw them back at them, whether you understand them or not...Nyeahh, you're an "unfit deplorable racist" too, so there!

And since I generally use the "mature" and "reading comprehension" thing--geez, I hate having my material stolen. I mean, if anyone's gonna plagiarize it, at least read it first, sheesh.

I mean... in theory, but clearly you don't understand how impeachment works. To my recollection there has only been two impeachments in U.S. history, and neither President lost office over it. They were Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Nixon resigned, not impeached.
Basically, the way I understand it, after an impeachment, the congress needs a 2/3 majority for a conviction. You won't get a 2/3 majority to convict Trump.

No you would have to commit some major crime and lie to congress to it. Something like the Hillary e-mails.

This is a false equivalency. Are people crying about Trump for the wrong reason? Yes. But Trump will destroy not only the U.S. economy, but the world economy. If you want a preview of what a Trump preview will be like, move to Kansas. Unfortunately, Brownback is a potential Trump cabinet member, so may god help us all.

I can't tell if you're taking the piss or not.

Hm... using a private email server (on not part of the white house), which is something most members of government do, or someone who will destroy the economy. This email thing is bollocks.
