Impeachable offense #I’ve stopped counting. Actually, he commits one every morning when he wakes up, but this one is particularly blatant. Emoluments, anyone? For 12 weekends in a row, Donald Trump has spent time at a Donald Trump-owned or managed property in what has to be a financial boon for the Trump family. Of course, everywhere Donald Trump […]

While we’re ll celebrating recent events, and pondering the distinct possibility that the Russian connection may yet bring Trimp down, we must not forget all the other impeachable offenses the small handed one is committing. This one is via Laurence Tribe, who is more assiduously keeping count than am I. Mr. Trump’s 2013 lease with […]

Interesting Question

A friend of mine raised an interesting question about all this Russia stuff. Apparently the FBI has been investigating Trump and his merry band of Russophiles since at least this past summer. What was it that led them to start the investigation in the first place? So far as I know, this question has been […]

Excuse my cynicism

I wish I could agree with this article, which argues that Michael Flynn has retroactively registered as a foreign agent in order to set himself up for leniency when Trump and Pence are investigated. It still begs the question of why Michael Flynn is suddenly doing this. By registering now as a foreign agent, he’s […]

Add these to the list

Yet more impeachable offenses. First up: Virtually overnight, Mar-a-Lago, Mr. Trump’s members-only Palm Beach, Fla., club, has been transformed into the part-time capital of American government, a so-called winter White House where Mr. Trump has entertained a foreign head of state, health care industry executives and other presidential guests. But Mr. Trump’s gatherings at Mar-a-Lago […]

I’ve stopped keeping count. Yet another impeachable offense: When China awarded President Donald Trump a long-coveted trademark of the “Trump” brand this week, it violated its own regulations. Chinese legal standards prohibit trademarks of the names of foreign leaders. Trump secured exclusive rights for the use of his name for “building construction services” in China […]

Noted in passing, another impeachable offence

It was widely reported that Trump named Steve Bannon (or more accurately, Bannon named Steve Bannon) to the National Security Council. The law provides that certain people are automatically members of the NSC, and others must be confirmed by Congress. Apparently, Bannon is so unpopular that even the present lickspittle Senate Republicans can’t be counted […]

Impeachable Offense #5

Okay, I realize that I’ve been scratching the surface here, but in my defense, I have a day job and it would surely be a full time endeavor to catalog all of Trump’s impeachable offenses. Here’s the latest: Visitors to the newly revamped White House website get more than a simple rundown of first lady Melania […]

We really can’t complain

A friend sent me this link, to an opinion piece in the Boston Globe that makes the obvious point that we have been “hacking” election for years, so we really don’t have much right to be outraged by what the Russians may have done. Some of our politicians tell us we are a Christian country, […]

Impeachable Offense, #4

This sort of thing will get old fast, but these things have to be documented. It is, of course, a requirement that I point out here what would have happened had Obama done anything so blatant. A source tells ThinkProgress that the Kuwaiti embassy, which has regularly held the event at the Four Seasons in […]
