Also, impeachment does not necessarily mean that the president gets removed, which I think some people believe.

Clinton was impeached and still ended his reign with a fairly high approval rating.

If you have any kind of passion for history, these could be amazing and terrifying and fascinating times.

If you're a religious nut, you could interpret this as the end of days and the Trump is the anti-christ trying to create hell on earth

If you're an Alex Jones follower, its pretty clear that the Lizard People swung this election and that they're overtly taking over the world. A few hours after this ceremony the first divisions of the UN's elite Commando Battalions code named Cobra will start taking over key American facilities and Military bases.

If you're a gun nut, its a great day to be America

If you're an anti-gun person, you're going to buy a gun.

If you're a far right wing, militia lunatic. One of yours just got elected to office

If you're left wing, you just peed a little and not for a good reason.

Actually you don't need any crime to officially committed. You need to charge someone with grounds for impeachment but the truthfullness of these charges doesn't really matter. All you need is the political cover to do it.

It just takes the required votes of the judiciary committee, house and senate. As As for crimes he is in violation of the emoluments clause day 1.

Trump gets impeached the day that enough republican house/senate seats are at risk of being primaried by pro impeachment candidates.

When people refer to impeachment they usually are referring to impeachment by the house and conviction by the senate. If convicted by the senate you are removed. Clinton was only impeached by the house

Is it normal for an incoming president to talk so negatively? Sounds like a campaign speech.

I'm looking for:

1. Woefully unprepared admin officials. Articles in the NYT, etc pointing out that hundreds of appointments are just literally vacant and the others are filled with unqualified cronies. Bad things will inevitably happen (natural disasters, foreign military crises, terror attacks). The response to these could be FEMA / Katrina scandal times a thousand.

2. Full federal implementation of Kansas / Louisiana style Tea Party wet dream policy agenda. Massive tax cuts for the rich leading to budget crises and govt agencies so unfunded that they can't function. Rich-poor divide gets ridiculous, middle class shrinks further. ACA is repealed and not replaced. Endless attacks on civil rights, LGBT, defunding of PP. Full anti-science agenda and promotion of 'religious freedom' laws and creation-based education.

3. Non-GOP Trump programs like infrastructure spending, ripping up trade agreements, building that wall, etc die on the house floor. Trump loses interest, resorts to full governing by Twitter and takes an absurd amount of vacantions leaving Pence in charge, impeachment or not.

4. Russia gets very aggressive in Europe and the Middle East and the US shrugs. Western Europe countries get very nervous and start increasing their own military proliferation.

5. Hardcore blue states fed up with the tea party agenda and ineffectiveness of the Democratic Party start to seriously consider ceceeding from the union.
