So there it is. Did the president of the United States ask the president of a foreign country that was eagerly awaiting $250 million in U.S. aid to target a political opponent? Yes. Is that a clear attempt by Trump to use the power of his office to benefit himself and put self-interest above the interest of the nation? Heck yeah! Is the administration breaking the law and engaging in a cover-up by keeping the whistleblower report relating to this matter from congressional oversight committees? Yeppers.
A congressional report Clinton helped pen during Watergate was later used to justify impeaching her husband. Now it’s guiding Democrats angling to oust Trump.
The resulting title of the report, ‘Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment,’ may elicit yawns. But what they produced became a seminal 64-page road map with appendices that looks into what counts as an impeachable offense.
