3 lessons for Trump and Congress from Bill Clinton's impeachment

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

Lessons for Trump in how Clinton was acquitted by the Senate and hung on to finish out his term, as well as for congressional Democrats who want to succeed where the 1990s Republican House impeachment managers failed: The White House and its allies will push to investigate the investigators, accusing them of a partisan “witch hunt” — or worse; Partisan impeachments are tough, and, Sex wasn’t considered serious enough to impeach a president over, but Russia might be.

Unlike Nixon, Trump Will Not Go Quietly

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Trump has Fox News and fighting congressmen behind him and the mainstream media is deeply distrusted and widely detested. And there is no Democratic House to impeach him or Democratic Senate to convict him. Moreover, Trump is not Nixon, who, like Charles I, accepted his fate and let the executioner’s sword fall with dignity. If Trump goes, one imagines, he will not go quietly.

It Is Now an Obstruction Investigation

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

I continue to believe accusations of abuse of power is the real danger for President Trump: A report by the special counsel, either through the grand jury or some other vehicle, concluding (a) that the president had obstructed the FBI’s investigation of Flynn and of Trump-campaign collusion with Russia, and (b) recommending that the matter be referred to Congress for consideration of next steps, potentially including impeachment and removal.

Is Mueller’s Grand Jury Impeachment Step One?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

High crimes and misdemeanors need not be felonies chargeable in criminal court; they include all manner of execrable episodes and abuses of power that cause us to question a public official’s fitness. they are just the sort of thing you’d find in a report issued by a grand jury. Which means that a report issued by a grand jury could be just the sort of thing a special counsel might refer to Congress as the potential foundation for an impeachment case.

USA Today’s Impeachment-Push Poll

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Imagine if a national newspaper had asked voters in 2009 whether then-President Barack Obama should be impeached, or questioned whether he would finish his term. The left would have exploded in rage over the inherent racism in such preposterous questions. After all, at that point, Democrats were in control of both houses of Congress. Who thought that was plausible?

Team Trump Cannot Fear the I-Word

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

This is a very straightforward argument. First, Trump may not be prosecuted for obstructing investigations because he did not act corruptly – he had the authority to take the actions he did; and these actions, even if one finds them inappropriate, were not unreasonable. Second, Trump may not be impeached because his actions, even if one finds them inappropriate, do not approach the abuse-of-power predicate for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Selective Blindness Or Conspiracy Of Anti-Trump Judges?

Our friend Michael Patrick Leahy has shown that there’s more than willful blindness behind the bizarre rulings against President Trump's Executive Orders on travel from terrorism hotspots. There’s a potential conspiracy involving Democrat holdovers at the Department of Homeland Security, Muslim sympathizers in the media and the shadowy “immigrant rights” groups and Democratic state Attorneys General that have brought the lawsuits to overturn the President’s Executive Order.

Get Judges And Private Organizations Out Of Refugee Resettlement

The notion that an unelected federal judge could order the President and Congress to admit a given number of foreigners and order the States to support with welfare and education benefits however many refugees a private organization chose to send them defies so many constitutional limits that it is hard to even begin to count them.

Another Reason To Impeach Anti-Trump Judge Theodore Chuang

The Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution’s Due Process Clause to require judges to act impartially and with the appearance of impartiality. The conduct of Judge Chuang raises serious questions about his impartiality. We urge Congress to hold hearings on Judge Chuang's impeachment at its earliest opportunity.

Another Reason To Impeach Some Federal Judges

Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinions in Heller and McDonald, many of the most liberal lower federal courts have flaunted Heller and the clear language of the Constitution and have been making up their own anti-constitutional rules restricting the Second Amendment.

Tennessee Star: Nashville to Host Impeach Rogue Judges Rally

“We will urge our Representatives [in the United States House of Representatives] to impeach, and for the Senate to try, convict, and remove [Federal District] Judge James Robart in Washington and [Federal District] Judge Leonie Brinkema in Virginia,” The Spirit of America Rally organizer Mark Skoda told our friends at the TennesseeStar.com.

Thank Judges Robart and Brinkema When This Comes to America

The need for “extreme vetting” of supposed “refugees” from failed states and terrorist hotspots is demonstrated almost daily in the media, should Judges like Leonie Brinkema and James L. Robart choose to take judicial notice of such news reports. A particularly frightening example was recently revealed during the trial in Sweden of an asylum-seeking war criminal.

Another Federal Judge Seizes Presidential Power

If terrorism, as proven in the same court house where Judge Brinkema sits on the bench, isn’t a “rational basis” for President Trump’s Executive Order 13,769 then what, in the Judge’s eyes, would justify pausing immigration from a country known to harbor people hostile to the United States? The answer, of course, is that it is not Judge Brinkema’s role in our federal republic to make such decisions, it is the President’s constitutional prerogative to do so.

Impeach Judge James L. Robart – Stolen Sovereignty Makes The Case

The President’s powers as Commander in Chief and his executive power to maintain the country’s sovereignty have been stolen by an unelected judge in the Western District of Washington. Stolen Sovereignty by Daniel Horowitz explains how We the People can recover the sovereignty stolen from us by judges like James L. Robart, and why judges like James L. Robart should be impeached.

Conservatives Build Case To Impeach Judge Robard

Daniel Horowitz writing for Conservative Review and Ken Klukowski writing for Breitbart added new arguments to our case for the impeachment of Federal District Judge James L. Robart for issuing an order ultra vires – acting beyond his jurisdiction.

Impeach Federal Judge James L. Robart

We urge the House of Representatives to immediately prepare articles of impeachment against Judge Robart and to hold hearings at the earliest possible hour. The public needs to know exactly how his blatant partisanship and anti-constitutional behavior has jeopardized our national security and intruded upon the clear constitutional prerogatives of the Congress and the President.
