How To End The Constitutionalist Crisis

Thom plus logo Pundits are saying that Trump is leading us into a constitutional crisis because Barr will slow-walk every effort of Congress to do oversight, and the court proceedings will drag on past the elections. But the Constitution says that if Congress simply and officially declares that they're investigating the possibility of impeachment, then the Courts no longer play a role at all. Congress becomes, essentially, a grand jury that can call its own witnesses and issue its own decisions, including the decision to remove a president from office.

Trump has already been accused by federal courts of violating federal election laws by paying off Stormy and Karen to hide his affairs before the election, and his felonies obstructing justice are laid out in detail in the Mueller report. It's time for Congress to do its job and begin impeachment hearings.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
