Many voters didn’t expect that Republican candidate Donald Trump to win the election with all of the various fraud lawsuits and sexual assault cases against him, but he somehow managed to become the next President of the United States. As much of America (and the world) collectively voice their concerns regarding Trump’s win, many Americans are turning to Google to find out either how to move out of Canada or how to impeach Trump.
According to one law professor, it may be difficult to impeach President Trump now that the GOP is in control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives – but there is still a strong belief that there’s already enough evidence to impeach this moron. In a 23-page article, University of Utah Law Professor Christopher Lewis Peterson lays out why Congress should impeach Trump and how it could be easily done.
According to Peterson, Trump’s involvement in fraudulent activity and racketeering is grounds for impeachment under Article II of the United States Constitution for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Peterson said:
“Unlike his promised crimes yet to come, the illegal acts in Trump’s high pressure wealth seminars have already occurred. Indeed, a federal judge appointed under Article III of the U.S. Constitution has already determined that Trump’s alleged actions, if true, constitute fraud and racketeering.
Congress would be well within its legal rights under the Constitution to insist upon a President who is not a fraudster or a racketeer as defined in its own law.”
Peterson is referring to Trump’s scammy Trump University, which he is currently facing countless lawsuits over. Without even mentioning the numerous sexual assault lawsuits that have been brought against Trump recently, Peterson believes that Trump’s fraudulent activity alone could be grounds for impeachment.
“Trump appears to have lied about his role in Trump University to students, he has throughout the election continued to misrepresent the cases that focus on his misrepresentations.”
Currently, Trump is facing a $40 million civil suit from New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman for the illegal business practices and fraud of Trump University. These cases are all ongoing, and will begin the Monday after Thanksgiving. Hopefully, this will be a small ray of hope in a completely disappointing election turnout.
