Persons Subject to Impeachment

Why the "double standard" in the "Impeachment" of "President Donald J. Trump" from those who are "Members" of the "U.S. Congress" whom have committed the same "Offenses"?

During the debate in the "First Congress" on the “removal” controversy, it was contended by some members that impeachment was the exclusive way to remove any officer of the government from his post, but "Madison" and others contended that this position was destructive of sound governmental practice, and the view did not prevail.

"Impeachment," said "Madison," was to be used to reach a bad officer sheltered by the "President" and to remove him “even against the will of the President; so that the declaration in the Constitution was intended as a supplementary security for the good behavior of the public officers.” While the language of "Section Four" covers any “civil officer” in the "executive branch," and covers "judges" as well, it excludes "military officers," and the precedent was early established that it does not apply to "members" of "Congress." (Footnote 650).

Even though "Rep. Waters" and "Sen. Schumer" are "exempt" from being subject to "Impeachment," they are not "exempt" from being "Expelled" from the "U.S. Congress" nor having their "names" submitted to the "U.S. Attorney General" for review before a "Federal Grand Jury" with a "Grand Jury Indictment" forthcoming for their "criminal conduct." 

"Congressional Immunity" refers to a special "immunity" that is granted to "members" of the "U.S. Congress."  A "member" of the "U.S. Congress" is "exempt" from "arrest" while "attending" a "session" of the "body" to which the "member" belongs, "excluding" an "arrest" for "treason," "breach of the peace," or a "felony."  It is the duty of each "House" of the "U.S. Congress" and for the "Legislatures" of the "states" of the "Union" to "support" and defend the "Constitution" for "The United States of America" and as such, they all have a duty to hold "everyone" who holds a "Public Office of Trust" to the same standard of "laws" as being "applied" to the "Citizens" of the "fifty (50) states" of our "Nation."
