I’ve been trying to look at this question of impeachment from different perspectives. I’m no fan of Trump and I was no fan of Obama either. So had this been Jeb Bush’s son and Obama did what Trump did how would I feel? Being that I have such a Libertarian streak in me I personally would applaud Obama for doing that and don’t think I would support him being impeached for it. That’s just me though. So as I have been thinking about the question of “high crimes and misdemeanors” I began thinking about how the Founders would be looking at this situation? I can’t imagine they would be thrilled with politicians and their family being enriched by corrupt foreign governments. I would have to imagine they would find that appalling. Regarding a president looking into such a situation I would have to think they would want that. So I guess the question would center around how they view foreign aid?
What do others think about this question?
