…... He being impeached will be almost too much for him to take. It was for Nixon, who resigned after that but before the Senate ruled.
No your are again incorrect. This triviality will amount to nothing for him and will roll off like water on a duck's back.

It doesn't work that way. If the House votes to impeach, he's impeached, Clinton was. Then it's on the Senate to hold a trial and remove him or not. It's a political court, not a court of law...
You do not know what you are talking about. Being impeached is not a finding of guilt or inocence. The Senate will do that and the Senate will find him not guilty of an impeachable offense. Ergo not guilty.

Being impeached means the House found you guilty.

""High crimes and misdemeanors" is a phrase from Section 4 of Article Two of the United States Constitution: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

No it doesn't. It means they are recommending a Senate trial. Guilt or innocence are determined in the Senate.
I'll help you out. Clinton was impeached, he was guilty, the Senate didn't vote to remove him. Nixon as impeached, he was guilty, the Senate didn't vote to remove him. Trump will be impeached, he's guilty. What the Senate does? Likely the same as the two mentioned...

Clinton was recommended for adjudication in the Senate, by the House. The Senate trial found him not guilty. Nixon was not found guilty in the Senate as it did not go to trial since he resigned. So you are wrong on both counts.

You are missing the point. Nixon was impeached. Clinton was impeached. And Trump will be impeached. Nothing changes that part and Trump doesn't want to be lumped in with either one.
