    I think just general constant lying would be something to consider in the next election, but I don't see it being a constitutional reason for removal. Now, lying under oath, that's different.

    I know. But dang, how much damage he can do before then.

    Here is an article from Truthdig, which I like because they don't lean Democrat or Republican, and I think their columns are insightful and provocative.

    So here is one that talks about all the impeachable offenses that Trump has committed, but it doesn't let Democrats off the hook.

    Of the whole slate of Democratic candidates (including Bloomberg) who do you think is the "cleanest"? Just curious.

    I would certainly agree that the legislature was been yielding power to the executive at least since Woodrow Wilson.

    Yup, I wish they'd step up and do their jobs.

    If the idea is to box the Presidentís baser instincts in, you would think there were more effective legislative strategies available than the endless quest for the golden gotcha.

    So apparently all of trumpís whining about not being able to defend himself was just like everything else that comes out of his mouth. Lies. Now that he actually has the opportunity to send lawyers to defend himself he chooses not to.

    I suspect his minions in the Senate with do his dirty work quite well. My take on the defense summary is that, among other things, they support the some of the conspiracy theories around Ukraine's corruption and investigations of the Biden's. It sounds like maybe the witness list for both sides will be constitutional legal experts, which will be interesting.

    Not having Donald testify under oath is a smart strategic move due to his chronic misrepresentation of the truth. I would think there is as strong a case for obstruction of justice as there could be for bribery.
