Robert Reich is a fool, which is to say he follows the anti-capitalist musings of the so-called “Economics Professor,” Paul Krugman.
Paul Robin Krugman is an American economist, who is currently Distinguished Professor of Economics at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and a columnist for The New York Times.
Neither has a clue about capitalism which gives them very low marks in the credibility department.
It’s a bit scary when a supposed learned Professor and former Presidential Cabinet Member lowers himself (in this case climbs up) to the rhetorical level of crazy-ass Maxine Waters.
“By my count, there are now four grounds to impeach Donald Trump. The fifth appears to be on its way.
First, in taking the oath of office, a president promises to “faithfully execute the laws & the constitution.”
That’s Article II Section 2.
But Trump is unfaithfully executing his duties as president by accusing his predecessor, president Obama, of undertaking an illegal and impeachable act, with absolutely no evidence to support the accusation.”
You who yell about the Russian thing with no credible evidence. Maybe you should keep your eyes on the news.
The president also swears to Protect and Defend the Constitution Against Enemies, Both Foreign and Domestic. Of course, no matter what truth comes out I’m sure you will deny it as propaganda of the far right……….and with absolutely no evidence to support the accusation.
“Second, Article I Section 9 of the Constitution forbids government officials from taking things of value from foreign governments.
But Trump is making big money off his Trump International Hotel by steering foreign diplomatic delegations to it, and will make a bundle off China’s recent decision to grant his trademark applications for the Trump brand, decisions Chinese authorities arrived at directly because of decisions Trump has made as president.”
Bob, Mr. Trump, like all presidents, have put his personal interest into trust.
As for the Chinese trademark deal, it was a decade old request and the decision to rule in Trump’s favor predates his election as president.
“Third: The 1st Amendment to the Constitution bars any law “respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
But Trump’s ban on travel into the United States from 6 muslim countries – which he initiated, advocated for, and oversees – violates that provision.”
Least we forget, Bob, the list of concerned countries that the Trump administration outlined in the executive order was based on the one signed into law in Dec. 2015 by the former Obama administration.
“Fourth: The 1st Amendment also bars “abridging the freedom of the press.” But Trump’s labeling the press “the enemy of the people,” and choosing who he invites to news conferences based on whether they’ve given him favorable coverage, violates this provision.”
The press has indeed become a threat to America.
Evidence is mounting that Trump and his aides colluded with Russian operatives to win the 2016 presidential election.
Presidents can be impeached for what the Constitution calls “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
The question is no longer whether there are grounds to impeach Trump
. The practical question is whether there’s the political will.”
What High Crimes and Misdemeanor? Treason?
Dr. Bob, perhaps you and your lunatic friend Maxine should have a nice lunch together and come up with a better list. So far, just fog. No smoke, No fire.
