Always welcome your comments, Chris. I have written before about the challenge the Democratic leadership have in reconciling their Constitutional duty with the political risks that impeachment might bring; indeed, you’ve even commented on those pieces!

I know they have a tough fight on their hands amongst the electorate and their Congressional colleagues, but that opposition — on its own — doesn’t make it either right or wrong. There is a NYT article that literally writes the articles of impeachment on Trump based heavily on those of Nixon and Clinton and that provides a solid start. Ultimately, whatever the level of opposition, surely there is a conceivable case to begin impeachment now?

Writing on US politics from across the pond. Occasional comments in the build up to the 2020 election week. Views rarely my own. Especially the funny ones.
