Check Your (Executive) Privilege

It’s the holiday season in the faculty lounge and the subpoenas are hung by the chimney with care. On this episode, Professors Epstein and Yoo do a deep dive into the strengths and weaknesses of the impeachment case, the shortcomings of the Inspector General’s report on the Russia investigation, and the greatest legal question of our time: can you impeach an ex-president? All that plus Richard breaks down the economics of Christmas, John calls for civil disobedience in the Berkeley food scene, and Franklin Pierce finally gets called to account.

    Horowitz report reminds me of Comey’s report on Hillary. Somewhere, sometime, someone(s) big needs to actually held accountable for these messes politicians make due to being power hungry. 

    Millions of dollars of cost, and tons on time blabbering on when most of us need to get up and go to work and actually produce something of value.

    … in which Professor Epstein gratuitously assigns the worst possible interpretation of Donald Trump’s blurtings.

    So what else is new.

    It continues to amaze me how so many learned constitutional scholars fail to recognize that “Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors” are not the only *impeachable* offenses, but rather are the offenses that require removal upon *conviction.* It’s essentially a minimum sentencing provision.
