Impeachment lawyer and CNN legal analyst Ross Garber on Wednesday explained how President Donald Trump’s prior business dealings could set him on the path to impeachment.
Host John Avlon noted Trump’s longstanding relationship with Deutsche Bank, which began in the 1990s when the self-identified mogul found that U.S. banks would no longer lend him money, and how that would factor into any Congressional investigations.
“We know there [are] already folks eager for impeachment in the Progressive Caucus,” Avlon asked. “Whether the president or any individual can be impeached for crimes committed before they took office, kind of a legal jump ball.”
“As we know, the constitutional standard is treason, bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors,” Garber responded. “There is precedent for impeaching judges for conduct before they took judicial office. But largely, but not exclusively, impeachment is a political process. It may come down to what Congress thinks.”
Trump’s ‘stupid’ call to Kemp ‘bordered on criminality’: Ex-Senate leader Harry Reid
On CNN Saturday, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) tore into President Donald Trump for his phone call demanding the governor of Georgia convene the legislature to overturn the election.
"Trump is out of touch with reality," said Reid. "The Republican secretary of state in Georgia has been very strong. Georgia is a state that is not going to allow this foolishness to continue. They had an election. They've proved it. They certified it. And I think that Trump is wasting his time. Georgia is not going to have its reputation ruined by some stupid damn thing that Trump is trying to do that is outside the realm of reality."
She’s ‘gone full MAGA’: Ivanka Trump scrambling to salvage her political aspirations
According to a report from CNN, there has been a noticeable change in the Twitter habits of Ivanka Trump since her father, Donald Trump, lost his re-election bid to former Vice President Joe Biden, with the first daughter now pushing back against critics when she usually fills her tweets with highly-flattering pictures of herself working for the White House.
Now that the Trump family is seeing their dream of a political dynasty slipping away with the loss, both Ivanka and her brother Don Jr. are asserting themselves in different ways to remain viable if they have any hope of running for office one day.
CNN host abruptly ends interview with Georgia’s GOP head for continuing to spout election fraud claims
CNN host Martin Savidge called an abrupt end to an interview with the head of the Georgia Republican Party on Saturday morning after his guest continued to question the results of the 2020 presidential election in his state.
Appearing on CNN on Saturday morning, Republican David Shafer was repeatedly fact-checked by the host as he maintained that there was widespread fraud in Georgia that led to President Donald Trump's loss to former Vice President Joe Biden.
"Mr. Shaffer, do you believe that there is widespread voter fraud in Georgia?" the host asked.
"There are unquestionably problems with the election," the Republican shot back. "We filed a lawsuit yesterday that shows that thousands of votes were cast by inmates in prison, by people who don't live in the state."
