Impeachable?

Herb Dempsey

In the last couple of days J.W. Verret, Associate Professor of Law at the Antonine Scalia Law School of George Mason University, has made major decisions and written several articles in major new sources. Verret, writing in the Atlantic, found the Mueller Report inescapable and labeled the Mueller Report as his "Tipping Point."

As you might guess from his position, Verret is a conservative. If you would like some additional support that Verret is a conservative perhaps you would like to look at the Federalist Society website, where you can read all about his credentials. He is a conservative and a scholar with credentials ranging from Harvard to Stanford.

Verret recounts in precise detail his history of mounting disagreements with members of the Trump transition team and finally concludes impeachment is the solution provided for, "roughly a dozen separate instances of obstruction of justice are contained in the Mueller report."

From Business Insider to Daily Beast to HuffPo the word spread since yesterday. 

Verret read the Mueller report twice.  I only read the 448 pages once and it didn’t change my mind that the legal process we call "impeachment" is already provided as a constitutional answer for the resolution of the high crimes and misdemeanors detailed in The Mueller Report. This version is both a PDF file and searchable if you wish to study the evolving history. Some commentaries are also available at The Brennan Center.
