Impeachment expert explains how Trump’s prior business dealings could sink him

Published

on

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.”

As a point of fact, Trump used three tweets to say what he said about the women, not editing it down to 280 characters.

"He said the words," Cuomo fact-checked.

Texas Republican women think Trump wasn’t being racist — because ‘he didn’t say a color’

Published

on

On Tuesday, CNN reporter Randi Kaye interviewed a group of eight Texas GOP women about President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four black and brown congresswomen who have criticized him. And they broadly refused to accept that his behavior was racist.

"How many of you don’t think what the president said was racist, raise your hand?" said Kaye, continuing in a voiceover, "These eight Republican women from Dallas don't see anything wrong with President Trump telling four Democratic Congress to go back to where they came from.

"He was saying if they hate America so much because what we’re seeing out of them and hearing out of them, they hate America," said one woman. "If it’s so bad, there's a lot of places they can go."
