The Impeachment Process: A Primer

President Trump screams that the present impeachment process is unconstitutional.  The President’s enemies, along with respected commentators such as Chis Wallace, say the Presidents claims are balderdash. Why does the President continue to make the claim?  What is the truth? Per the Constitution, the House of Representatives has the sole power to impeach the President, […]
