    Can Ken Starr go back under a rock

    It seems that the Trump investigation has caused Ken Starr to come back out from under his rock figuring that impeachment talk means he has a new audience for a book about Bill Clinton.  I heard that blowhard interviewed on WLS yesterday.  He said that Trump should not be impeached (if for no other reason than he hasn't done anything wrong) because the statute under which he's being investigated does not require impeachment, whereas the statute under which he investigated the Clinton's required impeachment (paraphrasing).  Isn't it the Constitution that outlines impeachment?  The GOP is twisting itself in knots trying to demonstrate how Trump is not like Clinton, and that Clinton's "crimes" and womanizing was deserving of judgement and consequences, whereas we should all shrug about Trump's philandering and, oh yeah, colluding with Russia.

    "Treason, bribery, or other high crimes or misdemeanors" is how the Constitution defines what a President can be impeached for. One is out, but the other two are very much in play depending on the results of the Mueller investigation. 


    Clinton was impeached for lying under oath, which was interpreted as obstruction of justice, which would fall under "other high crimes and misdemeanors."
