Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
tsk. IMPEACHMENT is lurks in hearts and minds of progressives! Deposing.har Trump is the end-game, the goal, of Mueller's investigations of everyone BUT Trump, after all, as well as Resistance mobilization to STOP involuntary separations and inexcusable pardons.

I'm been looking into pardon case law, since a crossed the path of a certain crypto-libertarian autodidact, waving Ex Parte Garland, 71 U.S. 333 (1866) and Federalist No. x, which is of course every libertarian's tell. That particular case is not even half the history between Marshall and Holmes. More important, I been trying to review, how many recent, dubious presidential pardons hooked to sundry "special prosecutors" had slipped my mind. The liberterian asserted, inexplicably, that Justice Field got it wrong. As it happens, I had it wrong: the body in defense of "immunity tendered by pardon" yon Excellencies is as lengthy as it is pretentious.

Quite the indictment of the many purported apolitical DOJ officers.

Bottom line: neither liberal liberals nor conservative liberals will find cover in the annals, as if either faction actually needed legal justification to proceed with purely "political" censure. SCOTUS is extremely unlikely to oppose Trump's next flex of constitutional power.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
