The Washington Post is out with a very stupid opinion piece under the title, “Forget Impeachment, Tee Up Prosecution.” Jennifer Rubin, the always ill informed “conservative” mouthpiece at the Post is responsible for this turd.
This really is not that difficult. It is very difficult, however, to have an intelligent discussion of impeachment with people expressing ill informed opinions, especially in prominent news sources.
“Tee up Prosecution”? Huh? Prosecution by whom? Certainly not the Attorney Specific of the United States, who is a Trump toady and has the excuse to lean on that Department of Justice policy prohibits indicting a sitting president. A state attorney general? That is not beyond the realm of possibility, but it would set off a court battle with who knows what result.
Our resident expert in these matters lately told us the answer. All we have to do is listen. At his momentous public statement, Robert Mueller said, “ the Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting President of wrongdoing.”
In sum, impeachment is the only option.
