Donald Trump's lawyers are heading to court to face questions about the Trump International Hotel and whether the president is profiting off foreign governments, in violation of the Constitution.
Al: Opinion is the key word here, the media is full of opinions. Assuming the house votes to impeach, the trial in the senate will be full of constitutional experts and legal experts and then the senate has to get a 2/3 yes vote to impeach, basically a waste of time. Under article 2 of the constitution the president has the power to fire anyone, some may disagrees as to the length and depth of that power, the president can also fire any cabinet member or director for any reason or no reason. the emolument clauses again is a gray area, back in the eighties the supreme court's associate Justice Scalia wrote an opinion that the emolument clause does not apply to the president or VP so for this issues it would appear that the court will first have to decide this issue. The rest of the stuff that the democrats are screaming about will have to be looked at one at a time to determine if this is within the powers of the president or was this out side of presidential powers. The house can issues articles of impeachment for just about anything, but will they hold up in the senate during a trial?
