Donald Trump must be impeached.

(quote) The remedy of impeachment was designed to create a last-resort mechanism for preserving our constitutional system. It operates by removing executive-branch officials who have so abused power through what the framers called "high crimes and misdemeanours" that they cannot be trusted to continue in office.

Hear what Trump actually said.

I don't get the impression that he "shockingly admitted on national television that the action (Comey firing) was provoked by the FBI's intensifying investigation into his campaign's ties with Russia."

Cassowary, did you actually read the article in the link I provided? :?: :?: :?:

It was written by Laurence Tribe, professor of constitutional law at Harvard Law School.

Presumably, his opinion piece published originally in The Washington Post contains the sound professional advice of one of the US top experts in constitutional law. I hardly think that an academic of his stature would put his own professional reputation at risk publishing hearsay.

Forgive me, neverfail, I'm not laughing at you, but about Harvard. :mrgreen:

From your article, for context, Tribe follows the Obama progressive narrative, you need to read this article knowing that bias.

Ahh, the daily anti-Trump article from the Washington Post dutifully reprinted by Fairfax.

Just for balance, I would have hoped that Fairfax might have pointed out that the author (Prof Lawrence Tribe) previously taught with Barack Obama and was subsequently appointed by President Obama to a senior position in the Justice Department.

Could there perhaps just be a modicum of bias in this commentary which should have been declared, less the Australian readership think this reflects independent, politically neutral analysis.
Good advice.
A saucer of cream will do for me, thank you for your kindness.

Well Booklady; bear in mind that I live in a country where the word progressive has not acquired the politically loaded connotations it seems to have picked up in your country.

Having a clear political preference is one thing but does this make Mr Tribe untruthful in the reasons he published in the Post as to why Trump could be, even should be, impeached?

Well, having ruined "liberal", it's not surprising that the leftists have moved on to despoil other parts of the dictionary.

If nothing else, it certainly punctures that appeal to authority that you're relying on here. There's a reason William F. Buckley said, "I would rather be governed by the first two thousand people in the Boston telephone directory than by the two thousand people on the faculty of Harvard University."

Except the article reaches no such conclusion and no credible source is cited.

Thanks fellows!

I notice that neither of you have stated outright that the grounds for Trump's impeachment as provided by Professor tribe are outright lies.

If this is what you want to say then why dance around the matter. Why not just say so?

Even if there wasn't SO WHAT? You can't site any evidence that Trump illegally colluded with the Russians other than anonymous hearsay
