Re: EDITED: ever heard "where there's smoke there's fire?"
Awarding the G7 summit location to his Doral Resort for starters. He owns it, he will profit from it, this violates the emoluments clause.

Not only would that have violated the emoluments clause, but it is also the classic example of corruption: awarding government contracts to his own business.

Not only would such egregious corruption be impeachable, but it is also criminal. Many office holders have gone to prison for having done the same or less.

Faith's sad lack of any sense of right and wrong keeps her from realizing that corruption is wrong.

Oh really. "They have witnesses who are saying" just about anything they want them to say, but it still hasn't amounted to anything but hot air.

Denial isn't just a river in Egypt.

But that's standard for the Left, it's always an unnamed witness or official or whistleblower we often never get to hear named.

See above. They are named, under oath, and on the record.

And then if we do find out it will still be a bunch of hot air anyway, it will turn out that the quid pro quo was not what it was insinuated to be or it was perfectly SOP or something.

You are doing exactly what you are accusing Democrats of doing. Irony much?
