You got it wrong. It's not about draining the swamp dry, it's draining the swamp to spread the swamp water around and make an Everglades.

'Purged' North Korean diplomat Kim Yong Chol appears in state media

A high ranking North Korean official supposedly gulaged for his part in the failed February talks with Donnie was apparently spotted in North Korean footage alive and well. In fact it seems exaggerating the purging and deaths of many North Koreans are apparently exaggerated.

NK being..well, NK, a lot of our reports come from a single SK source with a propensity of exaggeration about what happens in NK when it comes to purges and executions.

It is possible to think he is doing a good job, but also that he has committed crimes that he should be punished for. The grounds for impeachment, after all, are not "he is doing badly". It's "he committed high crimes or misdemeanours"

Seems a few days ago, there was some saber rattling between the US and Chinese defense secretaries during the Shangri-La talks in Singapore over Taiwan and the islands in the South China Sea. The Chinese said they would go to war to make sure Taiwan remains part of China. Seems they feel the US is supporting an independent Taiwan. If things get out of hand it could get really ugly.

True, that is. Though doing your job properly is intertwined with not committing such high crimes and misdemeanors.
