Impeaching the President must start by impeaching the gatekeepers.
Facts about President Trump's alleged violations of the law and his oath of office that are proven, observable, and indisputable demand attention by the Department of Justice and Congress. What happens when the Speaker of the House and Senate Majority Leader fail to investigate?
Such behavior constitutes obstruction of justice and dereliction of oath and duty.
"Obstruction may consist of any attempt to hinder the discovery, apprehension, conviction or punishment of anyone who has committed a crime. The acts by which justice is obstructed may include bribery, murder, intimidation, and the use of physical force against witnesses, law enforcement officers or court officials."
What are the charges?
- Violation of the Emolument Clause of the U.S. Constitution preventing conflicts of interest
- Violation of the Misprision law for covering up lies
- Making untruthful remarks repeatedly including slander and libel as a matter of routine
Who is the best voice of the opposition to take the case forward to appeal the obstruction of justice and to make the charges?
- Leaders and their counsel for the Democratic Party
- American Civil Liberties Union
- Other legal authorities in Constitutional Law
To whom do they present their case?
- The U.S. Court through appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court
Now, I ask you, why is this so difficult?
"Republicans take heat on Trump's tax returns
Most of the Republicans who have called for President Trump to release his tax returns have declined to join efforts to use the power of Congress to make it happen.
Only two Republicans who think Trump should make his finances public have joined in Democratic-led attempts to demand the tax returns from the IRS.
At least 10 other GOP lawmakers have said Trump should release his tax returns during the 2016 campaign and recent interviews or town hall meetings with constituents. But they've declined to support measures to compel the release of the returns, including during three House floor votes forced by Democrats."
