Impeachment is political, not juridical. Under the Constitution impeachable offenses are whatever a majority of the House says they are. For Nixon, covering up a break-in; for Clinton, lying about consensual sex; for Trump, solicitation, bribery and obstruction.

The Constitution defines and limits the basis for impeachment as "Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." In Trump's case, it is "bribery or other high crimes" that have formed the basis of the impeachment inquiry.

With the process soon to be as Republicans have demanded, and with the proof of impeachable offenses plain to see, the president's allies will claim that that the federal crimes of soliciting campaign assistance from foreign governments and bribery aren't impeachable offenses.

Trump took the presidential oath of office promising that he would faithfully execute his obligation to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution. Earlier this week, Trump referred to a clause in the Constitution as "phony," and he thereby implied that he need not abide it nor enforce it.

The president refused to deliver congressionally authorized and ordered military and financial aid to an ally threatened with Russian invasion until the ally's government performed a presidentially requested favor for his reelection campaign. Is it an impeachable offense?

Now is the time for Congress to reclaim its constitutional power as the sole entity to declare war. Until it does, profoundly outdated, morally ambivalent and overtly unconstitutional statutes lie in the presidential desk drawer like a loaded gun.


Oct 3, 2019
Federal law defines as criminal the solicitation of aid, anything of value, for a political campaign from a foreign national or foreign government, whether the thing of value arrives or not.

We have an attorney general who acts as if he were the president's personal lawyer. We have Republicans in Congress who see and hear no evil from this president. And we have congressional Democrats hesitant to do their constitutional duty. We have a mess.
