Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It's not clear to me how many of the above questions actually lead to clearly impeachable offences. I'm sure the Trump lawyer present would object to almost all on the grounds that they are just digging for political dirt and are outside the remit of a special prosecutor charged with investigating very specific charges of collusion with a foreign power for political advantage in a particular election.

I have no doubt that Trump had all sorts of dodgy business dealings with reprehensible regimes prior to his election. That's a feature, rather than a bug of US business more generally and Trump can probably plausibly distance himself from most of it by blaming various subordinates. Are crimes committed before election impeachable?

I would have thought the purpose of that tweet is pretty obvious - to blames Dems for trying to gain partisan advantage from something he claims didn't happen. Hardly impeachable behaviour.  Next.

and what's so comical about that wiki article is that there is no reference to the HUAC hearings [1, 2, 3, &tc.] which ushered the "brand" into the lexicon of US American terrorsticalisms.

Might I suggest that neither is Trump? He has many faults, but a lack of transparency in the language he uses isn't high on the list.

41. What did you really mean on or about January 27, 2017 by "I need loyalty. I expect loyalty"?

trans. Michael S. Schmidt, NYT: WHAT THIS MEANS IS, Trump allegedly threatened to revoke Cosco® reward points issued to Comey's wife, children, heirs, cousins, in-laws, and successors, if he refused to disclose material evidence discovered in the FBI investigation into Area 51 remote access keys to the State Department's mirror server in the home of Who?
