The U.S. Constitution’s provision that federal officers are impeachable for “high crimes and misdemeanors” is notoriously unclear. That’s on purpose. The framers wanted a fairly open-ended tool for removing an officer who posed a serious and immediate threat to the constitutional order. The impeachment power needed to be flexible enough to deal with circumstances that […]
Donald Trump remains largely misunderstood – and dare I say it, underestimated – in many areas that matter on the national and world stages. For someone allegedly having no real plan and being so allegedly incompetent – he is certainly, rapidly accomplishing a great deal of exactly the plan on which he ran for president.

Ryan (R-Wis.) is searching for the votes to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and pass a long-term spending bill to keep the government open.
