Long and well-written article on the whole mess


Like the thread title says. I'll send the link to my Trumper friends but I'm sure they won't read it. Too many big words

From an Editors Note at the the beginning of the article:

"Finally, a point worth underscoring: as Andrew Weissmann explains in the Introduction, impeachable offenses need not be criminal in nature, and not all crimes are impeachable offences. Members of Congress certainly do not need to conclude that the President committed a crime for impeachment, conviction, and removal. Nevertheless, the fact that these leading experts reach the conclusion that several federal crimes apply to President Trumpís conduct involving Ukraine is an important consideration for the annals of history and for the historic decision Congress now faces."

Personally, I'm certain that Trump will win here (and probably the election, too) but that his supporters will have much egg on their faces as more and more comes out.
