More and more American voices are calling for impeachment proceedings to begin against President Donald Trump.

Comedian and actor Jon Cryer is among them—and he's bringing receipts.


It all started when Cryer reminded his followers of Trump's impeachable offenses.

But when a Twitter troll accused Cryer of basing his argument on emotions rather than facts, Cryer was happy to be more specific.

He called out Trump's corruption, especially when it comes to using the executive office to benefit his companies and the interests of his most wealthy and influential supporters.

He called out his repeated attempts to obstruct justice.

And his comical lack of regard for the Emoluments clause.

The calls to impeach Trump are becoming stronger despite fears that it will backfire against the Democrats. Many respond that impeachment is not about political palatability, but about protecting our very democracy.

Congressional Democrats remain split on the matter. Some progressive Democrats insist that the process of impeachment would allow for more thorough investigations into Trump's suspected crimes, citing the drastic ways in which Nixon's impeachment hearings affected the public's perception of him.

Some fear that it could be political suicide.

Soon, followers of Cryer's began adding other impeachable offenses to the growing list.

They didn't hesitate to commend Cryer's list.

It doesn't appear that the calls for impeachment will be letting up any time soon.

Today, Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for his crimes, leading everyone to ask: Will Trump pardon one of his most vocal allies?

Republicans often claim their party has the upper hand with voters when it comes to fiscal responsibility. When a Democrat is in office, one of the chief complaints you can count on from Republican lawmakers is that the President is ballooning the deficit, or sending the federal debt skyward.

This hasn't quite been the case when it's a Republican President occupying the White House.
