Legal Scholars??? Really now…

  1. We have not heard from one “witness” — a person with direct involvement in what is charged here. Sondland is the closest thing to it, and his testimony of his conversations with the President is exculpatory. No other fact witness has been called.
  2. National security interests are “determined by Congress”? Good Lord, how did you people manage to graduate from law school? The Executive determines what is and is not in the national security interests of the country. Congress can react by de-funding the Executive’s efforts — and even by impeaching principal officers in the President’s Cabinet. But Congress manifestly does not “determine” what our national security interests are.

So this whole article is built on two demonstrably false premises. Their falsehood would be obvious to a high school student, and the manner in which that cripples the rest of this piece would be obvious to a freshmen critical thinking student.

And you guys are “legal scholars”???
