Harvard Law Professor, Laurence Tribe, is not a fan of Trump and he made that pretty clear in an interview with CNN. The Professor was trying to say that the Democrats need to stop going after Trump for every little thing and wait for an actual issue. He just used an odd expression to explain this.
““If you’re going to shoot him, you have to shoot to kill, and that requires an overwhelming majority of a bipartisan kind. Otherwise, you’re just going to nick the guy, and make him feel empowered and vindicated.”
But seeing as he is a gun control advocate he later came back and apologized on Twitter.
“In an otherwise good interview, I made a terrible word choice, saying an impeachment “bullet” can only be “shot once” so one must “shoot to kill.” I wasn’t speaking literally, but as one who works hard to reduce gun violence, this was just inexcusable. I’m very sorry.”
So a metaphor about shooting the President and it’s gun violence that it is the issue… not the inference of assassination?
Laurence went on to explain what type of offenses are impeachable. He stressed Abuse of Power as something the Democrats need to watch out for.
“The powers of the United States government to cover up his own criminality or to cover up the way in which he cooperated with Moscow in order to win the presidency, that may or may not qualify as an ordinary federal crime — but it’s certainly an impeachable offense.”
He went on to say that “You can’t be the boy that cried wolf,” when it comes to impeachment. So basically you can’t be Maxine Waters, Al Green, or any of the other Democrats constantly spouting “Impeach 45!”
You can tell that Trump is doing his job as the Democrats are rallying to find a way to get rid of him.
