On impeachment eve, Trump repeats the crime

It was as if an accused white-collar criminal, during jury selection for his bribery trial, had offered the judge a briefcase full of unmarked bills.

Or if a drug offender, taking the stand to defend himself against charges that he trafficked in narcotics, had tried to sell a brick of cocaine to the jury foreman.

But it really happened. Even as the House on Tuesday worked out the rules of the debate that will almost certainly see President Trump impeached by Wednesday night, Trump and his team continued to commit the very offenses for which he is being punished.

As the Rules Committee moved to the floor an impeachment article alleging Trump had abused his office by soliciting foreign help for his reelection campaign, Trumpís personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, boasted to CNN that Trump is ďvery supportiveĒ of Giulianiís ongoing efforts to dig up political dirt in Ukraine that would help with Trumpís reelection campaign.

1. There's only so many crimes. He's bound to unintentionally repeat them.
