The word for this call by Alec Baldwin is "sedition"

Someone ought to let him know.

Exactly. So why isn't anything being done about this?

Here in the U.S. many people on the left and right support overthrowing the elected president of Venezuela.

At least Baldwin is consistent.
Promoting overthrow of elected gov't because he thinks it's better, here and/or aboard.

I don’t know why anyone cares what Baldwin says, but the exact quote (from the article linked in the first post) was:

“We have a method for changing governments here in the United States. We must in an orderly and lawful way overthrow the government of Donald Trump.”

You’re an idiot if you think that’s “sedition.”

I was obviously responding to the thread "Title"

Which is why they should properly reflect the subject, and intent, of the OP.

BTW, In our Constitutional Democracy, we do not ever "overthrow" our President, We replace them with an election.

Only dumbasses equate "overthrow legally" with the voting process. It looks like Alec cannot help being a loudmouth.

Impeachment and conviction is a Constitutional process.

Really, Maybe that law school taught you something after all. Fancy terms that don't apply.


BUT-----
First,,,;SO WHAT!

Second,,,; by your own statement Baldwin was suggesting Trump be voted out. Not impeached.

Third, after more than two years of searching, lying, false allegations, fabrications, threats, and promises,,,; NOTHING for which the President could be impeached has risen to the surface.

NOTHING!!!

Congress has been in session for 60 days and hasn't done it. If they had something, surely it would be exercised by now. They will be in session for two years and provide nothing but the same empty threats.

We are at the point that the losers on left cannot even decide what charges they want to invent. So now they have asked for everybody and anybody whoever did a thing with Donald Trump to turn over their records. Somewhere in all that, there simply HAS to be SOMETHING!!!!?

For the record, I once watched a part of "The Apprentice" Pure junk. But I'm betting I'll get a subpoena
