More than 500 legal scholars sign letter saying Trump committed 'impeachable conduct'

Quote


“There is overwhelming evidence that President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking to use presidential power to pressure a foreign government to help him distort an American election, for his personal and political benefit, at the direct expense of national security interests as determined by Congress," they wrote. "His conduct is precisely the type of threat to our democracy that the Founders feared when they included the remedy of impeachment in the Constitution."

The scholars cited Trump's phone call asking the Ukrainian President for a "favor," his and acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's public statements about the call, Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani's role pursuing Ukrainian investigations, and testimony from top US diplomat in Ukraine Bill Taylor and US Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland that Trump held military aid and White House visits as incentives for Ukraine to launch investigations into his political rivals.
The group highlighted impeachment as a key check against "conduct that corrupts elections." 
"Corrupting elections subverts the process by which the Constitution makes the president democratically accountable," the scholars wrote. "Put simply, if a President cheats in his effort at re-election, trusting the democratic process to serve as a check through that election is no remedy at all. That is what impeachment is for."

Sad that so many of the rightwingnut retards are just too stupid to,understand the significance of this kind of professional legal analysis of the situation.

 

I'm sure they will also mindlessly reject any grasp of the meaning of this as well.....

 

Oct 10, 2019 · We, former members of the Watergate special prosecutor force, believe there exists ... This evidence can be accepted as sufficient for impeachment, unless disproved by any contrary evidence ...

Trump got caught. Because he has a lifelong record of dishonesty from cheating at business to cheating his contractors to cheating on his wive to even cheating in his own charity, giving him the benefit of the doubt would be insane.

the excuse makers are themselves inherently dishonest from those here who claim to read minds to those who claim someone said what they clearly did not say to those who said the world leaders were not laughing at trump behind his back.

trump corrupts everyone he touches from the powerful like bill barf to the simpletons right here, although it can be argued that they already were corrupt and trump just made their corruption seem normal.

shame 500 legal scholars represent ideology not people or honest of life in plain sight.

 

A shame your brain is so twisted that you can not recognize honesty and expertise right in front of your eyes.

500 raging liberals. LOL   Let's just ignore the American citizens vote.   You stupid moron liberals

 

And there is that sneaking fear that plagues rightwingnut retards......that everybody who is intelligent and educated has just got to be a liberal.......and they're not wrong either, in almost every case.

 

Noah Feldman literally wrote the book on constitutional law.

 

The Harvard Law School professor, who will be one of four academics testifying Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee as it probes the legal grounds for impeaching President Trump, coauthored the textbook “Constitutional Law.”

 

But that is only the tip of the iceberg of the prolific writing of the prominent public intellectual. He coauthored another textbook, on the First Amendment, as well as seven other nonfiction books that covered topics ranging from President James Madison to America’s “church-state problem” to the rise and fall of the Islamic State.

More than 11,000 scientist says the Earth is warming due to man

 

HA!

 

The number of scientists affirming the reality and dangers of human caused global warming and its consequent climate changes is actually in the millions. 

 

 

Nice of you though to once again demonstrate what an insane, reality-challenged and very retarded troll you are, Chuckles.....just for the benefit of any newcomers to the forum who may not know what you are yet!

If the foreign government agreed they felt pressured, I could be convinced. 

 

 

1. They said they did not.  It doesn’t matter if they did.  Trump does no5 give away our aid without strings.  

 

2. They absolutely have to live up to our demands  to get our money.   

 

3. The need to find out what Biden and the rest did while they were in power is very important.  Why do you not want to know?
