Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Harm to Ongoing Matter

Even Elizabeth Warren is publicly calling for impeachment

Elizabeth Warren Calls for Impeachment Process Against Trump

"Senator Elizabeth Warren on Friday called for the Democratic-led House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump, making her the most prominent Democrat to move toward ousting the president over evidence from the special counsel’s investigation that Mr. Trump attempted to undermine that inquiry.

Ms. Warren, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination to face Mr. Trump in 2020, laid out her arguments in a multi-tweet thread, saying the report documented efforts by Russia to elect Mr. Trump and “Donald Trump welcomed the help.” Ms. Warren said “once elected, Donald Trump obstructed the investigation into that attack.”

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Harm to Ongoing Matter

what were the DEEP losses suffered in the 2000 election?

they won the presidency, lost 1 house seat, and 4 senate seats(most of which were in blue states if i remember correctly)?

if the democrats want to have any credibility with their base and the left of center people they have to initiate impeachment proceedings..

Impeachment won't get anything done politically except turn Trump supporters into mad max rush to the voting booth.

Its hate that will bring them out, there will ALWAYS be another caravan headed our way. The right will ALWAYS stay on messaging and ignite their base.

Congress has a duty to uphold the constitution.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: Harm to Ongoing Matter

i dont believe impeachment doesn't get anything politically. i also believe trumps base will mad max rush the voting booth anyway. that group historically ALWAYS votes.

its the dem base support that sometimes doesn't and needs to be rallied.

as for the merits, ask any prosecutor, all of us have convicted someone of obstruction on FAR less than what trump has done according to mueller.

Like, one "cooperates" getting into the cop carr after beuing cuffed, cause if you don't "cooperate" you better be able to run real fast with your hands cuffed behind your back or it's not going to go well for you.

"We didn't exert executive privilege". Ya, you just go ahead and exert executive privilege. We'll see how well that works out for you. Every one of his statements is the worst sort of dishonest lawyerly smarm.

This is completely correct. Amazing that the liberal TV commentators seem to miss it. (Same with the "courageous" underlings who disobeyed orders.)

The reporters fall for these statements 100% of the time. Only lawyers on the news panels ever push back, and that's like 50% of the time.

I've seen multiple tv reporters of the chuck todd variety (though he's better than most), misuse "executive privilege" six ways to Sunday. They should just read the US v. Nixon decision on air, which would actually be a way of reporting relevant news.

It seems as though Prof Dershowitz vehemently disagrees with the learned legal opinions being espoused here on 2+2. It seems as though he believes there is a very large difference between A President exercising his Constitutional authority to hire and fire within the Executive branch and some shmoo on the street. He sites numerous examples:
