Impeachment: A Constitutional REMEDY

I attended SU Law. I know Professor Banks. But, I was not one of his students. I disagree with him and find his position … 'wrong'. Legal authority to impeach a civil officer of the United States is found in Article II, section 4 of the Constitution, which provides: “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.” Notwithstanding all the lockstep group-think soundbite repetition of the Democrat talking point that impeachment is a ‘political process’ … it is a Constitutional remedy. There is no legal basis for the assertion that basic Constitutional principles like jurisdiction, substantive and procedural due process and equal protection under the law need not apply. But, this is not the first time that we have seen this dangerous extra-constitutional behavior from the Democrats. Understand, it is the precursor to and the hallmark of tyranny.

For now … I’ll leave aside the ‘technical’ legal argument and prevail upon you to use your common sense. Do you think the Founders included impeachment as a remedy under the Constitution … but intended that Constitutional principles need not apply to its administration? Or do you think that they included it as a republic determinative legal remedy and fully expected that the universal Constitutional principles of fair play and substantial justice contained in the balance of the document would and should apply? I submit that it is obviously the latter. You don't even need to be an SU Law graduate to figure that out …

The suggestion otherwise … made whenever and wherever a microphone is thrust in front of a Democrat … is simply ludicrous. It’s a deception to justify Capital basement Schiff-Skiff tyrannical behavior whose objective is and always has been … to topple the government. Are you watching closely?

Now would be a good time to start thinking for yourself …
