He moved the embassy to Jerusalem, didn't he? He passed a tax cut, didn't he? He is still president. We don't know what he will follow up on yet.
He really did give away all the leverage we had in the middle east, didn't he?
He really did blow up the deficit through the roof, and he is still president, because Americans are for the most part, stupid.
and he reversed a trend, instead of there being fewer uninsured, We now have move people without health insurance.
We are on the path to becoming a shithole nation....

You are wrong, the trial and decision of guilt or innocence comes in the Senate not the House.
No. Impeachment means the House finds you guilty. Then it's up to the Senate to remove you or not. Clinton was impeached, guilty, just not removed...

Impeached is like "charged".
The senate votes guilty or not guilty to decide whether to remove or not

Just one problem, both Clinton and Nixon were clearly guilty but neither was removed one way or another. In a court of law there would be a verdict, maybe not so in the Senate.

Either way, both were impeached as will be Trump. The Senate doesn't vote guilty or innocent, it votes removal or not. That is the reality, call it what you wish but do remember, both Clinton and Nixon were - guilty as charged.

Nixon was never impeached, he resigned before the House could vote on articles of impeachment.
Clinton was impeached but found "Not Guilty" by the senate (each senator actually votes "guilty" or "not guilty")
