CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: These guys are living on a different planet. They asked for this a year ago, it's now discovered they are lost. I've seen quotes from computer experts who worked for decades at Microsoft who say that this can absolutely be found. And we already heard from one of the IRS officials a few months ago that all of this stuff is backed up.

Now, the idea -- here we have Nixon lost 18 minutes. Obama's now lost two years of emails, and one thing that people don't remember, the second article of impeachment for Richard Nixon was the abuse of the IRS to pursue political enemies. This is a high crime; this is not a triviality.

Was it that chick who was born in 1947 but claimed she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary who climbed Everest in 1953?

How is this relevant? Nixon was a Republican. This is only a crime when it’s done by a Republican.

same witch that wanted, as an article of impeachment, the high crime of the POTUS lied to the American people ?

the same witch that said Nixon wasn't entitled to defense council ?

the same witch that was summarily fired from that position for unethical behavior ?

"He has, acting personally and through his subordinates and agents, endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be intitiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner."

endeavour

v. tr. To attempt (fulfillment of a responsibility or an obligation, for example) by employment or expenditure of effort: endeavored to improve the quality of life in the inner city.
v. intr. To work with a set or specified goal or purpose.

Which of those two definitions of endeavor did Nixon do? Attempt or have as a goal?

Back then we had Americans working in the IRS not 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brat, mau-mauing, corrupt Party hacks. I recall that the IRS refused Nixon's efforts. But I don't have a five digit IQ and I could be misremembering.

I did not watch the video. It appeared to me that the headline was quoting what's his name.

Impeachment? The entire government needs to be impeached and imprisoned. They’ve enabled this mess.

Well I for one didn’t need the clarification; I simply can’t imagine Hillary ever telling a joke of any kind!
