Can Trump be impeached on obstruction of justice?

On tonight’s Big Picture, Thom Hartmann talks with Thomas M Shapiro, Pokross Professor of Law and Social policy about income inequality, not just between the 1% and the 99, but income inequality between races. Then he sits down in a panel discussion with Charles Sauer and Julio Rivera. He talks with them about raising the 25th amendment against Donald Trump as well as a US congressman calling for the President’s impeachment. Then they talk about the ‘bots’ who have come in to defend the defenseless anti net neutrality position and New York’s attempt at a single payer health policy.

Reading Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States, it has become clear to me that the divide between the very rich and the rest of us has been enforced consistently since the days of the hallowed founding fathers, the 0.01% of their day. The post-Reagan divide is just further proof that we have yet to dislodge the rich from their pedestal of power.

Professor Shapiro isn't wrong about the divide; he just understated the length of time it's been around.
