Since taking office President Donald J.

Getting caught in his Ukraine scandal is an impeachable offense, but truth be told, Trump has been committing impeachable offenses since being ‘elected’ despite losing the popular vote by almost 3 million, and Democrats limiting his impeachment inquiry to only Ukraine would be foolish and a waste of time.
