    Well no, but the Single party in Washington seems to think so. Interesting take.

    It is arming Al Qaeda (911 terrorist group) and the Islamist Jihadists that went on to form the modern incarnation of ISIS that is an impeachable offense.

    Same story its been for years. Being anti-establishment is the offense, so everything the establishment doesnt like becomes a potentially 'impeachable' offense.

    LOL! The Trump haters claim everything is an "impeachable offense".

    Not sure how curtailing military support for the Putin - Syria - Iran oil / LNG cartel while working with the Saudis to deliver a blow to the same could possibly be impeachable to anyone but a traitor:

    Trump asks Saudi Arabia to increase oil production
    by Victoria Cavaliere @CNNMoney June 30, 2018: 12:19 PM ET
    President Donald Trump has asked Saudi Arabia's king to increase oil production to make up for a shortfall from Iran and Venezuela.
    In a tweet on Saturday, Trump said King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud had agreed to his request to boost production by "maybe up to 2,000,000 barrels."


    "Just spoke to King Salman of Saudi Arabia and explained to him that, because of the turmoil & disfunction in Iran and Venezuela, I am asking that Saudi Arabia increase oil production, maybe up to 2,000,000 barrels, to make up the difference...Prices to high! He has agreed!" the tweet read.

    Oil prices have spiked in the past week, and on Thursday crude rose above $74 a barrel for the first time since late 2014. The 13% surge in prices has been driven by a series of factors in the international oil market that will trickle down to US drivers filling up their gas tanks.

    Just spoke to King Salman of Saudi Arabia and explained to him that, because of the turmoil & disfunction in Iran and Venezuela, I am asking that Saudi Arabia increase oil production, maybe up to 2,000,000 barrels, to make up the difference...Prices to high! He has agreed!

    What is shocking is the ignorance or flat out bias in reporting and the treasonous acts by Congress in punishing our allies and rewarding our enemies. If the cartel supported by Democrats succeeds and the dollar is no longer reserve currency and/or oil is no longer traded in dollars, the dollar may well be worth as much as a peso. We owe the petrodollar to the Saudis, like it or not.

    The only reason Putin is interested in Syria is to keep the Saudis and/or Qataris from running a pipeline to the Mediterranean or tying into the Nabucco pipeline and competing with him in Europe.

    Probably. They are willing to impeach him for having a disagreeable personality.

    Cripes, that would mean we would have to impeach Bush and every POTUS since, AND the entire frigging legislative branch. Hmmm, maybe a good idea.

    Of course not to the OP.

    Trump is the reincarnator of ISIS.

    Exactly, even if it's a position they previously supported:

    Not really. ISIS was an Obama legacy that Trump crushed, like all the other Obama legacies.

    I don't know if it by itself is an impeachable offense but it certainly shows he doesn't have the mental capability to be the President of the United States.

    The left calls the military "baby killers". But when a Republican president pulls the troops back home, there are calls for impeachment.

    ISIS is the offspring of GWB, and now will be reincarnated by the Trump withdrawal.

    Not really, we armed them and fought them later on. Wow, its a mess. But really it was Syria and Russia who defeated them. I guess the US helped a bit.

    Nah, they are effectively no longer a threat in Syria being surrounded by Assad, Turkey and Russia. Being there will just hamstring them. Otherwise YOU CANNOT FIGHT ISIS militarily when they have no land. But, I guess anything to continue the wars being we started the whole thing in the first place (meaning we have to continue it according to the warhawks). An endless circle, which is coming to a close. Afghanistan is next.

    Could you guys at least wait for the impeachment? Just a little longer. We haven't pulled out of Afghanistan yet.

    So you oppose the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria?

    Remember when Republicans and Trump blamed Obama for the creation of ISIS because he continued the gradual withdrawal of troops from Iraq that was started under Bush? ISIS hasn't even been completely defeated yet and the region is still in a civil war. At least Obama didn't leave the region during a civil war.
