House Judiciary Releases Report On Constitutional Grounds For Impeachment

Source: TPM

As has been precedent in previous impeachment investigations, the House Judiciary Committee released a report on the Constitutional grounds for impeachment on Saturday, outlining what offenses reach the “high crimes and misdemeanors” threshold.

The 52-page report was written by the panel’s majority staff and was written for the committee’s use as it continues its portion of the ongoing impeachment inquiry, set to intensify with a second House Judiciary Committee hearing on Monday morning. The report also comes on the heels of a directive from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who told House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) to proceed in drafting articles of impeachment.

In a statement on Saturday, Nadler called this “moment” — President Trump’s overt efforts to pressure a foreign government to investigate his political rival — the “Framers worst nightmare.”

The White House Counsel sent a letter that implied they will not attend the hearing. Then they can continue blaming the Impeachment process for "inference and hearsay."

2. How are the lawsuits going?


There very well may be "smoking gun" evidence that could force even Trump's toadies in the Senate to vote for his conviction and removal. (Think Nixon's oval office tapes.)

But, we won't know until all the subpoenas for evidence and testimonies are forked over. In addition to Bolton and McGahn's testimony, I am particularly interested in the actual recording of the call to Zelensky. There's no way Trump and his flunkies didn't alter the transcript they released to soft peddle his extortion.

The courts need to speed this shit up and rule whether the White House has to obey Congressional subpoenas, for the sake of our Democracy.

9. The report is well worth reading:

It's short, very well written, and combines history, law, and advocacy in a very accessible way.
