Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes. I felt that Trump should be impeached for many things such as imposing tariffs which is a violation of Congressional powers and failure to spend funds authorized by Congress, diverting them instead to the stupid wall. Then I learned that Congress explicitly and voluntarily gave up those powers and let the President assume what the Constitution says are Congressional powers.
So it is Congress that should be impeached for dereliction of duty and aiding and abetting violation of the Constitutional separation of powers.
It can be argued that in the modern age there is no time to ask Congress to declare war in the face of an attack. But no way can it be argued that there isn't time for Congress to vote on tariffs.
