Well giving the russians classified information has already been proven. The memo's have not been produced. If they do show up then I think trump is headed towards impeachment.
We impeached Clinton for lying about a bj. But yet the WH came out and lied about the release of classified info and people are okay with that. I do not see the logic behind those people's thoughts.
Colin Powell had a private email account (AOL) and received a fine for his act-- hillary used her own server and people want her jailed. Same crime yet people want different outcomes?
You have a few things very wrong here. What the president did, as I understand it after reading quite a bit, is nothing that other Presidents haven't done. He did not compromise national security because no sources or methods were revealed, and that information was discussed in the White House. The compromise of natl. security comes when that classified information leaves the secure facility (the White House) and enters the public domain. There is a reason the press is not permitted in those meetings and it's because things are discussed...classified things...not meant for their ears.
As for Clinton's impeachment, he was impeached for perjury. He lied several times, under oath. If and when President Trump does that, you will have a valid comparison.
And regarding what Hillary Clinton did with her server, and deleting 30k+ emails AFTER they were ordered by Congress t be turned over, it's nothing like what other Sec. of State have done, nothing like it. She committed so many crimes, violated several statutes hundreds of times, there is no comparison to what anyone else has done. Comey was in a tough spot but his way out, to say she didn't have intent, is total baloney. The negligence statutes are in place specifically for people who violate statues/rules/laws without intent, that's why it's called negligence, instead of willingly or knowingly, which are terms that accompany the charges associated with intentionally violating said laws/statutes. Comey dug himself a hole by not recommending it go forward.
Proof that Comey had become extremely political is right in front of your eyes. There is no crime, no indication of a crime, certainly no evidence of any crime in this Russia probe. Even if someone from the Trump campaign did speak with a Russian agent and coordinate the release of information to wiki leaks, IT'S NOT A CRIME. The only crime, and a very serious one at that, we know happened, was the release of the information on Gen Flynn. That is actually considered espionage. That is a serious crime, and the seriously inappropriate unmasking that accompanied it. There currently is no FBI investigation into any of the crimes we know of, yet a tremendous focus on the Russia probe, which is nothing more than a political story.
I have friends and family in Federal LE that are totally stunned by what has been going on, and is currently going on, in DC. A which hunt being prosecuted on the highest levels to ensure Trump is gone, and no one like him is ever elected again. When he said he was going to drain the swamp, the snakes that nest there decided to bite back, and that is what you are seeing. I truly hope Mueller will bring some semblance of actual law enforcement back to the FBI, because right now, they are pursuing political narratives and ignoring the crimes (leaks) and potentially explosive number and level of crimes involved in the unprecedented unmasking.
