The GOP says Trump can't be indicated while in office, but indictment for a crime is the only reason to impeach a president. Isn't that...?

...just a convenient way to refuse to do anything whatsoever about Trump, no matter what he did?

Update:

Impeachment actually means accusing....accusing of what if you claim a president can't be indicted?

Update 2:

"Indicted"....

    "The GOP says Trump can't be indicated while in office, but indictment for a crime is the only reason to impeach a president."

    Incorrect.

    Impeachment is not a legal process.

    Impeachment is a political process and judgment.

    Thus Trump can be impeached if in the judgement of the House of Representatives he has failed at his job to such a degree that it endangers the country. So impeachment is not the problem. The problem is, unless something drastic changes, the republican Senate will not vote to convict Trump. However, he will forever be stained by the process of impeachment. The democrats must not back down, they must do their Constitutional duty even while the republicans shirk theirs. Hopefully the voters render the final verdict by tossing Trump out of office.

    In 1999, Lindsey Graham knew that a president ‘doesn’t have to be convicted of a crime to be impeached. And, he also knew the purpose of impeachment. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/...

    The DOJ, who work for the president, have a policy not to indict a president. The house can charge him by impeachment. The trial is not with courts it is done in the Senate which is political not a court.

    [I'm guessing you meant "indicted" rather than "indicated".]

    A real crime is when a president finagles a way to abuse power so as to trash clearly written laws.

    Postponing deportation of people who live every day in violation of our laws after congress worked to agree on how to deport them?

    That's the worst crime in the same way a half truth is the worst kind of lie.

    The DNC needs to stay focused on the issues if they hope to win.
