I listened to this podcast a couple weeks ago and it got me even more worked up about impeachment. Constitutionalists are furious about the precedents being set by George Bush, Dick Cheney, and their co-conspirators. I’ve heard smart guys like Jonathan Turley, Jim Dempsey and David Cole expressing concern for a long time, but this segment especially moved me.
Bruce Fein got me especially worked up. Fein, a constitutional scholar with unmatched experiential, academic and conservative bona fides (not that the latter should really matter here, but it’s worth noting) sets forth a rigorous, apolitical argument for impeachment that is the most rational and compelling I’ve been exposed to yet. He also wrote a great piece in Slate a couple months ago that I can’t believe I missed. Read on, soldiers.
