Here's what constitutional experts say about whether President Trump could be indicted Could President Donald Trump be forcibly removed from office? That is a question that many Americans are asking now that Democrats are preparing to take control of the House of Representatives.The initial query, of course, is whether a legal case could be made for his impeachment.On Thursday, Trump himself insisted that he had done nothing wrong and that experts did not think he could face any serious legal consequences."Nobody except for me would be looked at like this. Nobody. What about Congress where they have a slush fund? And millions and millions of dollars is paid out each year," Trump complained to Fox News. When host Harris Faulkner mentioned that one of her guests had said he didn't think Trump should face legal consequences, he replied, "Nobody can! These are the people that ran the FEC — Federal Elections Commission. These are people writing stories that Trump did nothing...

Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Beat,‏” former Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA) reacted to reports President Donald Trump is considering his son-in-law Jared Kushner to replace John Kelly as White House chief of staff. Rendell said, “Ronald Reagan had James Baker, Bill Clinton had Leon Panetta, George Bush —the second George Bush had Andrew Card. These are people with rich and deep government experience. Jared Kushner has had some experience in these last two years, but didn’t have a sufficient security clearance. We’re going to make that person chief of staff? Hardly. I mean it shows that I think if this is true, its only meaning that is no one who’s got any credibility will take the job.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

“It’s hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong and who’s created the greatest economy in the history of our country,” Trump told Reuters As special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation moves along and a new Democratic majority gets ready to take over the House of Representatives in January, the word “impeachment” often comes up in political conservations. Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler, incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has asserted that if Michael Cohen (confessed felon and Trump’s former personal attorney) made hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal on direct orders from Trump in 2016, it would be an “impeachable offense.” Trump, however, has denied having extramarital affairs with either Daniels or McDougal and maintained that Cohen was acting independently—not on orders from him—if he made any hush money payments two years ago. And when Reuters reporters asked t...

“All too many Republicans are going from opposing the Democratic Party to opposing democracy itself." Max Boot was a leading proponent of neoconservative ideology in the 2000s and early to mid-2010s, often praising President George W. Bush and heavily criticizing President Barack Obama. But these days, the Washington Post columnist is an outspoken Never Trump conservative—and in his latest Post column, Boot argues that his former party, the GOP, has become frighteningly “authoritarian.”Reflecting on Republican power grabs in the state legislatures in Michigan and Wisconsin, Boot notes that Republicans “are moving to strip important powers from incoming Democratic governors” in those states. Boot quotes Robin Vos, Republican speaker of Wisconsin’s state assembly, as asserting that “if you took Madison and Milwaukee out of the state election formula, we would have a clear majority.” Boot’s analysis: Vos “is thus suggesting that liberals and people of col...

When it comes to criticizing the Democratic Party, nothing speaks like experience within the belly of the beast. When it comes to criticizing the Democratic Party, nothing speaks like experience within the belly of the beast. Ralph Nader is living proof. After years of effectively pressuring congressional Democrats to protect consumers and the environment against corporate greed, he watched firsthand as the party bowed to the demands of Big Business during the Jimmy Carter administration.And then there’s Nick Brana, the leading activist behind the Movement for a People’s Party (MPP).  Like Nader, Brana isn’t content merely to expose the corruption of the dismal dollar Democrats—a party that late political scientist Sheldon Wolin rightly called “the inauthentic opposition.” He’s looking to replace them with something much better: Let’s call it an “authentic opposition.”Don’t let his tender age of 29 fool you.

An eight-year campaign to slash the agency’s budget has left it understaffed, hamstrung and operating with archaic equipment. The result: billions less to fund the government. That’s good news for corporations and the wealthy. This story was co-published with The Atlantic.In the summer of 2008, William Pfeil made a startling discovery: Hundreds of foreign companies that operated in the U.S. weren’t paying U.S. taxes, and his employer, the Internal Revenue Service, had no idea. Under U.S. law, companies that do business in the Gulf of Mexico owe the American government a piece of what they make drilling for oil there or helping those that do. But the vast majority of the foreign companies weren’t paying anything, and taxpaying American companies were upset, arguing that it unfairly allowed the foreign rivals to underbid for contracts.Pfeil and the IRS started pursuing the non-U.S. entities. Ultimately, he figures he brought in more than $50 million in previously unpaid tax...

Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” retired Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz argued if the circumstances were that the current controversy involving President Donald Trump was “President” Bill Clinton instead of Trump, the tack of the media and Democrats would be different regarding the issue of impeachment. Dershowitz said Democrats and the aligned media would refer to the current situation as a “witch hunt” if Clinton were involved and that Republicans would take the current position of Democrats and call for Clinton’s impeachment. “I want everyone out there to imagine the following scenario,” he said. “Let’s assume that when Bill Clinton was running for president, Paula Jones came up to him and said, ‘Unless you pay me $130,000, I’ll reveal our affair.’ And let’s assume that Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton together did exactly what is alleged that Donald Trump an...

The First Family has broken with tradition: There’s no canine companion in the White House. In his homily for the state funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on December 5, Rev. Russell Levenson Jr. joked that Sully, Bush’s loyal service dog, had probably received more press attention in recent days than the president himself. That sentiment echoed Fala, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Scottish terrier, who was so popular with the US public that he received more fan mail than the president himself.Historically, First Canines have been a staple of life in the White House. Barack Obama had Bo and Sunny, two Portuguese water dogs. George W. Bush had Spot, a Springer spaniel, and Barney, a Scottish terrier. Bill Clinton had Buddy, a chocolate Labrador retriever. Before he needed the services of Sully, George H.W. Bush had Millie, a Springer spaniel (Spot’s mother). Ronald Reagan had Lucky, a fluffy black Bouvier des Flandres. John F.

George HW Bush, the former US president, was remembered as a "noble" man of “great humility” on Wednesday at a state funeral attended by much of America’s political establishment. Emotional eulogies from his son and friends remembered the 41st president as a “class act” who dedicated his life to public service and embodied courage, both political and personal.    In a service dominated by the messages of unity and patriotism, speakers praised Mr Bush’s opposition to “unthinking partisanship” and awareness that “hatred corrodes”.  Jon Meacham, a presidential historian, summed up Mr Bush’s approach to life as “tell the truth, don’t blame people, be strong, do your best, try hard, forgive, stay the course”. The messages were interpreted as a call for civility in politics at a time when the country is bitterly divided along party lines.

And even that was 2011, so in our wildest imagination we couldn’t imagine that Trump would be the nominee and that he would, you know, eviscerate H.W.’s dream of Jeb in the White House with two words, ‘low energy.’ All of that was unimaginable.” She continued, “I asked him about Donald Trump because at that point Trump was leading the birther movement and H.W. was talking about how much he liked Bill Clinton and Obama and I asked him what do you think of this Trump birther thing and he just said … am I allowed to say that word on air? … He said, you know, in essence, he’s a jerk — with a different word.” She added, “I heard later th...

Things were going fine as all the living former presidents and their spouses gathered at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., for the funeral of former president George H.W. Bush. But when our current president arrived things got awkward fast. As President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump took their places in the first row of the cathedral, they were greeted with light smiles and handshakes from Barack and Michelle Obama, a genial greeting in an otherwise frosty relationship. The Trumps' arrival also got a head turn from former president Bill Clinton, but Hillary Clinton, Trump's rival in the 2016 presidential campaign and a even still recipient of many Trump's attacks, threw a little side-eye and then completely ignored the Trumps.

  Donald Trump will attend the funeral of former US president George H W Bush on Wednesday, capping days of public praise for the Bush family and ending a feud that has simmered at the heart of the Republican Party for years.  Mr Trump is expected to sit in a row of the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, alongside former presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter for the service.  The US president has clashed in the past with Mr Bush, America’s 41st president who died aged 94 on Friday, and his son George W Bush, the 43rd president who did not vote for Mr Trump in the 2016 election.  Mr Trump once mocked Mr Bush Snr’s well-known “thousand points of light” phrase, used to describe the positive impact volunteers have on the country, asking “what the hell is that?”, and was fiercely critical of both the former president’s sons.  Mr Trump repeatedly criticised Mr Bush Jnr’s policies, not least his Middle Eastern military intervention, and defeated Jeb Bu...

"If this sh*t doesn’t stop, I’m quitting this damn show. I can’t take this much more.” Joy Behar and Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Sen.

And, according to the Daily Mail, the tension between Behar and McCain has reached the point where Behar is threatening to leave the popular daytime talk show.Bush, the United States’ 41st president, died on Friday, November 30 at the age of 94, and a recurring theme in the mainstream media—even among some liberals like veteran New York Times journalist Maureen Dowd—is that Bush 41 was capable of being polite to Democrats despite policy differences with them. That theme was very much at work on “The View” on December 4, with host Whoopi Goldberg pointing to Bush as an example of “how you c...

Democrats always have to compromise, no matter how large an electoral victory they may win. With Democrats about to assume control of the House of Representatives, we're being treated to another round of wide-ranging calls for bipartisanship, both overtly and more insidiously in sub-rosa form. Democrats are supposed to act in a bipartisan manner -- but without expecting either Donald Trump or Mitch McConnell to accept normal House oversight, much less to sit down with them and pass any serious bipartisan legislation. So, the real message to Democrats is that they must not articulate a clear, principled policy position of their own — even for the purpose of saving civilization as we know it — because that would only further "polarization" and "tribalization," as argued in the deeply flawed “Hidden Tribes” report I wrote about recently. The default assumption here is an article of faith among the D.C. punditocracy: Serious policymaking progress requires bipartisan...

George H.W. Bush was the last person elected president of the United States with any prior foreign policy experience. Bush, who has died at age 94, entered office with one of the most impressive resumes of any president, having served as director of the Central Intelligence Agency, ambassador to the United Nations and Ronald Reagan’s vice president.He left office with an impressive list of achievements, including managing the peaceful collapse of the Soviet Union and the unification of Germany. But a major high point of his presidency was also the harbinger of disappointments to come: the swift military victory that reversed Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait and seemed to herald a new era in world affairs – but left Saddam Hussein in power.In 1991, it seemed America could do anything it wanted to in the world. Twenty-seven years after Bush left Saddam Hussein in power, United States forces are still engaged in Iraq, and the US is far less confident of its global role.A N...
