    He gave his business to his sons who will be in contact with Trump every day.
    It doesn't matter if he has no foreign deals. There is plenty of conflict of interest just doing business with Americans. This guy has surrounded himself with idiots and yes men. People like to talk about bubbles, this man and his family live in the biggest bubble and this is a bubble that's going to be popped sooner rather than later.

    He/she never does.

    Hillary lost no one cares about that. Now how do you respond to the legitimate criticisms raised by the OP?

    It's not an offense for him to put his sons in charge. Maybe in Can'tada but not here.

    This is what's wrong with thinking you can run a government as a business....

    I agree 100% that refusing to put his business interests in a blind trust is an impeachable offense. So are things like communicating with Russia about hacking during our election cycle.
    The problem is that the GOP controls the House, and they have become so partisan and cynical that they'll protect their guy no matter what news comes to light. Impeachment would require a vote from at least one GOPer on the Judiciary Committee, and then from 30 House Republicans, before it goes to the Senate.
    I don't see it happening.

    You seem to forget that he doesn't, by law, have to do anything.

    With his business you really cannot put it in a blind trust as you could put a stock portfolio where the trustee could buy or sell stocks and you woukd not now which ones you owned.

    The president is exempt from the conflict of interest lawcand Trump knows thatvand Trump laughed about that at the fake news conference this AM.

    Don't they say ignorance of the law is no excuse? You have no excuse.

    I do not know how "official" someone's opinion is but let us know if Congress pays any attention. I bet they do not.

    Get ready for the melting of more snowflakes as inauguration day approaches. Now they will cling to the fantasy of impeachment. LOL!

    Don't worry, Trump won't even run for president and if he did he wouldn't win even one Republican primary state. Every poll and expert proves that Trump will never be president even if he did run.

    Even if his son broke the law this would not be grounds for impeachment. In short, another worthless OP.
