Re: The Constitution on Impeachment: What the experts are saying ...

Short version: Trump's innocent because he is a moron. Even those of us whose entire legal education consists of Bugs Bunny cartoons know that's no defense. I feel like if this ever ends up in a real courtroom, Trump is going to go for the full on "Vinnie 'The Chin'" defense. https://en.wikipedia.o...

Re: Intelligence/Judiciary Impeachment Investigation: Trump Obstruction; Suborning Perjury; Whistleblower(s)

What I wonder is how will just blowing off subpoenas like they don't mean anything be treated? I can't imagine Roberts will just let it slide, but I don't know exactly how it would go down? Of course, in my fantasy novel where people actually do their f'ing jobs, he'd send out the U.S. Marshals to g...
