            Looool, but they called Obama a dictator for issuing an Executive Order for DACA. Of course, that's back when they pretended to care about deficits and presidential conduct.

If Trump declares a "national emergency", there will be a law suit and the case will go through the courts. Trump shouldn't be able to take money out of military spending without a court approval. So, that route will only extend the length of the shutdown.

                                                            The fact is, Trump's demand would be a ransom payment. There's no comprehensive plan or cost analysis for his "emergency". It's just a demand for money.

This is where *URGENCY* is *NEEDED* as our extremely fragile Democracy is about to shatter and our government is going to fall into a pseudo-Republic where if the President wants something he'll get it even if it causes damage to the people who elected him. For the good of the country, Donald John Trump *needs* to be, *INDICTED* I believe that the argument that a sitting President *can't* be indicted is a stupid answer.
