WND Exclusive – So Just What is a High Crime and Misdemeanor?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Libertarian Rep. Justin Amash is a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a fiscal hawk and has a Conservative Review Liberty Score of 90, which is excellent.

So what does all this conservatism have to do with Amash’s recent call for the impeachment of President Trump? In other words, what does one have to do with the other? Well … absolutely nothing. But some “conservative” websites mean to somehow equate the two.

As a general rule, I don’t like calling out another conservative site, particularly as I often quote them. But the Washington Examiner’s piece entitled, “Get mad at Justin Amash all you want, but he’s still the biggest fiscal conservative,” tries to do just that.

It’s like saying that sure, Harvey Weinstein was a pervert and a rapist, but he made some great movies. How does making great movies cancel out or even lessen the severity of the other?

Answer: It doesn’t, but being a fiscal hawk may be a way to at least deflect some of the backlash directed at Amash.

It was understood by anyone with a brain who dared to be honest that the Mueller investigation had but one ultimate purpose – to lay the groundwork for a Trump impeachment. It’s why the entire Mueller dream team of “investigators” was a bunch of leftist Democrat hit men.

This now really comes down to what exactly is an impeachable offense of the president – any president.

Article II, Section 4, of the Constitution states: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
