Even without getting to the bottom of what Trump dismissed as “this Russia thing,” impeachable offenses could theoretically have been charged from the outset of this presidency. One important example is Trump’s brazen defiance of the foreign emoluments clause, which is designed to prevent foreign powers from pressuring U.S. officials to stray from undivided loyalty to the United States. Political reality made impeachment and removal on that and other grounds seem premature.
No longer. To wait for the results of the multiple investigations underway is to risk tying our nation’s fate to the whims of an authoritarian leader.
Trump must be impeached. Here’s why.
Laurence H. Tribe, Opinion, The Washington Post
There are reasons aplenty to reach
the conclusion… it’s time to impeach
and convict DJ Trump
and proceed then to dump
every toady and scurrilous leech.
