Rep. Keith Ellison (Dem) of Minnesota, a candidate for the head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), recently said there are reasonable grounds for bringing impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
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. Most authorities believe that it would be necessary for the President to have committed an indictable crime before he could be impeached.
The ACLU and other liberal organizations have vowed to bring the process forward via the courts. The group contends that Trump’s assets, including rents proceeds from foreign countries, violate the law.
OUR FREE OPINION
These contentions are more about sour grapes than they are about reality. President Trump has volunteered to donate rent profits generated from foreign entities to the national treasury and has otherwise taken steps to divest himself of the power and control over his investments while he is in office. No President has ever been impeached, and these liberal threats to impeach President Trump are disingenuous and the speak of Democrats who are continuing to have problems accepting Trump’s victory.
