We don’t need the Mueller investigation to demand impeachment. Trump violations of the law and the constitution are clear cut. The Congress not acting now is a clear dereliction of duty:
Congress, which has the authority to begin impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump has been reluctant to act, awaiting the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s criminal investigation, among other things.
But in a new book, three veteran constitutional lawyers argue that the framers of the Constitution provided impeachment as a remedy in anticipation of a leader like Trump, and that he’s committed enough offenses for removal proceedings to begin immediately.
The framers of the Constitution “were obsessed with corruption,” and “to defend against this ever-present danger, they built bulwarks into the Constitution itself,” the book The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump, set for release Tuesday, says.
