Conservative Lawyers: ‘Framers of the Constitution’ Would Say There’s Evidence of Impeachable Offenses


The reaction to Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s report continues. While Democrats have mainly been the only ones calling for President Donald Trump‘s impeachment, a group of conservative and libertarian lawyers co-founded by Trump nemesis George Conway released a statement on Tuesday saying that the framers of the U.S. Constitution would believe there was evidence of impeachable offenses.

The Checks and Balances group, as Law&Crime noted before, was started to “protect constitutional principles that are being undermined by the statements and actions of this president,” namely the rule of law. Jonathan H. Adler, Donald B. Ayer, John B. Bellinger, III, George T. Conway III, Carrie F. Cordero, Stuart M. Gerson, Peter D. Keisler, Marisa C. Maleck, Alan Charles Raul, Paul Rosenzweig, J.W. Verret all signed their names on a statement that said Mueller’s report was a “significant milestone in the civic life of the country.”

“The facts contained in the report reveal that the President engaged in persistent conduct intended to derail, undermine and obstruct ongoing federal investigations,” they said. “In light of the longstanding Department of Justice legal opinion that a sitting President cannot be indicted, we view it as irrelevant whether there is a prosecutorial recommendation that the crime of obstruction has been committed.”

“We believe the framers of the Constitution would have viewed the totality of this conduct as evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors,” the statement said. “Accordingly, Congress, which carries its own constitutional oversight responsibilities, should conduct further investigation.”

1. So when does Trump demand that Kellyanne choose her job or her husband?

I’m amazed it hasn’t happened already.

7. She'll never do that. The book and movie depend on the backstairs story.

Kellyanne and George are counting on a HUGE windfall from the book and the movie they're going to co-author/produce.

The public will be dying to see the scenes of their interactions at home, in "private."

THAT, will be the irony. When they profit more from his time in office than he does.

2. I thought it said "Farmers of the Constitution".

I had to read it again. I do this all the time...I am either reading too fast or I have dyslexia.

Of course the Founding Fathers wrote this...it is the foundation of our checks and balances and is key to our democracy.

of honorable adherence to the Constitution in the Republican senate.

8. Forget about framers of the constitution for now?

Why do they have to word it so lightly, What are they afraid of?

THE LAW AND THE CONSTITUTION ARE CLEAR, THERE IS SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE OF CRIMINAL CONDUCT BY THE PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF HIS ADMINISTRATION AND EXTENSIVE GROUNDS TO COMMENCE IMPEACHMENT PROCEDURES. SOME OF THESE CRIMINAL ACTIONS HAVE BEEN PERPETRATED AGAINST THE COUNTRY, THE CONSTITUTION AND THE RULE OF LAW IN PLAIN SITE. WE ARE BLESSED THAT WITH TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY, THERE IS PLENTY OF EVIDENCE IN VIDEO AND OTHER MEANS THAT WILL CORROBORATE THE CRIMINAL ACTIONS THAT WILL CLEARLY SUPPORT THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS.

Why can't they say it like that? Why do they have to run around the bush like scared chickens? That is what is wrong in this World with the good guys, they have no balls.

10. Except for hard core Trump supporters

everyone knows Trump committed impeachable offenses.

Spineless and character less Mitch McConnell does too but he will let crimes be committed as long as his stranglehold on power is maintained.
