After both, the House and Senate investigative committees have failed to find any evidence that former President Obama ordered the Trump Tower be wiretapped, Donald Trump persists with the charge. Bear in mind that both the CIA and FBI have also denied Trump's claim as has Obama.
Trump's behavior and persistence in the face of facts place the nation at considerable risk for many reasons:
- No one can believe or trust a thing that he says.
- Allies cannot deal with someone who is so unstable.
- The American people are victims of untrustworthy leadership.
The behavior problem and character deficiency transcend all policy and managerial action.
The slander and libel issue should evoke immediate trial for impeachment that must be initiated by the Speaker of the House.
Investigate the subject here:
"The involuntary removal of a sitting President of the United States has never occurred in our history. The only legal way such can be accomplished is by the impeachment process. This article discusses the legal standard to be properly applied by members of the U.S. House of Representatives when voting for or against Articles of Impeachment, and members of the U.S. Senate when voting whether to convict and remove from office a President of the U.S., as well as the procedure to be followed.
Article I § 2 of the United States Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power to impeach (make formal charges against) and Article I § 3 gives the Senate the sole power to try impeachments. Article II § 4 of the Constitution provides as follows:
"The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."
Thus, the operative legal standard to apply to an impeachment of a sitting President is "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." There is substantial difference of opinion over the interpretation of these words."
