Lawrence Tribe says Trump 'High Crimes and Misdemeanors' already evident
As conflicting accounts of what led to James Comey's firing linger and questions remain as to which equally troubling account of the dinner President Donald Trump had with the then-FBI director are accurate, one constitutional law expert has declared the developments "staggering" and evidence of "a series of high crimes and misdemeanors.
“It's essentially the language of bribery. It's the language of the underworld, of racketeering, not the language of a president who is supposed to be enforcing the rule of law," he said.
“Either way, as with the first article of impeachment against Richard Nixon, this is a series of high crimes and misdemeanors regardless of whether Trump was or was not part of a collusive plot with Russia to steal an American election."
That is likely the key to unlocking the mystery of what underlying conduct is so terrible that the Trump administration is willing to tie itself into knots and disgrace itself on the world stage to conceal its conduct."
