Hundreds of Legal Scholars Participate in Impeachment Letter Stunt Bolstering Dems

It looks like the left needs a little convincing still.

It looks as though the Democrats need all the help that they can get on impeachment, and they’re not afraid to ask for it.

After a somewhat disastrous public hearing on Wednesday, the needle hasn’t budged on impeachment – at least not at the national level.  The Democrats, who originally insisted that any impeachment of Trump would need to be overwhelmingly bipartisan, have been handcuffed the liberal and radical among them, and are now unwillingly full-steam-ahead.

Today, in an apparent effort to bring them a boost of confidence, a large number of legal scholars participated in an impeachment-aimed stunt.

More than 500 legal scholars signed on to a letter published Friday accusing President Donald Trump of having “engaged in impeachable conduct” in his dealings in Ukraine.

“There is overwhelming evidence that President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking to use presidential power to pressure a foreign government to help him distort an American election, for his personal and political benefit, at the direct expense of national security interests as determined by Congress,” they wrote. “His conduct is precisely the type of threat to our democracy that the Founders feared when they included the remedy of impeachment in the Constitution.”

The letter comes after four other legal scholars testified at the first House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing Wednesday, with three of them making the case for impeaching Trump.

The dozens of academics — hailing from a variety of educational institutions including Yale, Columbia and Rutgers — said in the letter that they were not taking a stance on whether Trump committed a crime.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday asked her committees to begin drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump, and was only hours later finding herself throwing a tantrum in the direction of a member of the White House press corps.

If that doesn’t tell you what the party’s mood is on impeachment, nothing will.
