  1. Just like Terry McAuluffe here in VA, both of them need to be impeached. This is not legal, it is following Obama’s footsteps of just doing everything by “executive order”. Tim Kaine is the same ilk. That is the strategy behind his “appointment” as Hillary’s second-in-command. If she keels over, he will still be Obama’s third term.
