    In the first impeachment, President Andrew Johnson was charged with removing an appointee. Afterwards there was a consensus that executive appointees serve at the pleasure of the president. But no too long ago President George W Bush got a lot of criticism for removing US Attorneys. Now the President is criticized for removing an ambassador.

    Yes and Jpod is exactly right. An Ambassador is the personal representative of the President and the President can remove an Ambassador for any or even no reason.

    And once again the Trump is a crazed, out of control idiot and an evil genius in control of his every word rears its head. Here’s a suggestion: Replace Noah with Dr. Pondriver – I mean Eli and the podcast listeners would triple.

    Feels like we can convict Trump based on assumptions of what we think he meant but say the FBI spying on the Trump campaign or the IRS messing with Tea Party groups, we need a smoking gun.

    The standards be doubling
