Wow!. No other president has ever been impeached twice!

Lawyers for the House Judiciary Committee floated the possibility that the panel could take up additional articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, according to a document filed in a federal appeals court Monday.
Urging the court to compel former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify, the committee’s lawyers said that his testimony could lead to more revelations about the president’s behavior.
“If McGahn’s testimony produces new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the articles approved by the House, the committee will proceed accordingly — including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment,” the lawyers said.
In a separate filing Monday, the Department of Justice argued the appeals court should reject the House’s bid to force McGahn to testify. “This court should decline the committee’s request that it enter the fray and instead should dismiss this fraught suit between the political branches,” the DOJ filing says.
The House sued to force McGahn to testify in August after the White House directed him not to testify before the Judiciary Committee. The White House and the Justice Department argued McGahn had “absolute immunity” from testifying before Congress.
If Donald Trump were to be impeached twice that would ensure his place in the history books, as the biggest criminal president ever!
For hundreds of years to come that would be the barometer by which all future presidencies were measured.
“Well Mr. President, that was pretty bad, But I think we can convince the media to bring it down to a quarter Trump.”
To be honest it is highly unlikely that the House will issue additional articles of impeachment, but that did not stop Trump from freaking out.

Speaking of history don’t you feel sorry for the future students who will have to read a textbook version of Trump’s tweets and try to understand just what in the fuck was wrong with him?
