Today is Friday; what better day is there to review 45’s week of impeachable offenses? Waiting until tomorrow might be prudent because there is no telling how he’ll offend today, but my goal is brevity.
Add the following to the countless pre-existing impeachable crimes already noted, ranging from obstruction of justice to abuse of power:

“Then I have an Article 2, where I am allowed to do whatever I want as President.” ~DT
2. On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that DT ordered subordinates to seize private land from homeowners, and ignore environmental stipulations, rather than wait for courts to grant Eminent domain to build his wall. Ordering people to break the law is illegal.
“Don’t worry, I’ll pardon you.” ~DT
These promised pardons to those who commit crimes at his behest constitute an impeachable offense.
3) And finally, the news is that Attorney General, Bill M(ob) Barr, paid DT $30,000 to host a holiday party at the T-DC Hotel. Barr says he consulted career ethics officials, and they determined that rules did not prohibit him from hosting his annual party at the T-Hotel. The exchange of money between the AG and a squatting POTUS blurs the line of independence required, and again, DT is profiting from the office, creating a conflict of interests. This may not be impeachable, but it is unethical.
Barr booked the party with full knowledge that DT is currently facing a lawsuit in Washington federal court filed by Democratic members of Congress.
This administration violates our laws and constitution regularly without consequences. I don’t get it.
Congress reconvenes after it’s summer after Labor Day. Perhaps we will see something come of the “formal impeachment proceedings” that House Judiciary Chairman, Jerry Nadler announced were underway before their recess began.
