When the founding fathers wrote the Constitution they were thinking about protecting us from kings and foreign aggressors. They never anticipated shitty mayors/governors. They were looking for evil, not stupid. They never could have foreseen Garcetti/Newsom.

The question is: Are we prepared to accept that a president can leverage official acts to get an investigation of a political rival? Our Founding Fathers drafted the remedy of impeachment so we would have a mechanism when corruption comes from the highest office in the land.

“All that’s swirling around us now is Impeachment. We talk about it day and night, it’s what’s on the news, there is NOTHING that has turned up that is Impeachable. Our founding fathers set impeachment to be extremely rare. We need to get good stuff done. Let the people vote,....
