How Solid are the Arguments for Trump's Impeachment?

January 30, 2020

Heartland Institute hosts Billy Aouste and Chris Talgo discuss the impeachment proceedings and the legal case against Trump. Is it as sound as the Democrats believe it is?

Heartland Institute hosts Billy Aouste and Chris Talgo attempt to dissect the wide ranging and complicated President Donald Trump impeachment case into two simple quests. The first: what does the constitution outline as impeachable offenses? Second: is what Trump did egregious compared to the behavior of other Presidents? They also investigate the two charges against the President - abuse of power and obstruction of Congress - what they mean and how serious they are. Though the media have been in a frenzy and you're probably sick of all this impeachment news, we hope you give it a listen!
