Get The Man A Real Lawyer

As Digby said: I told you so — that letter was all Trump, all the way. White House Counsel Pat Cipollone may has corrected the spelling and threw in some legalese, but real lawyers spotted it as a Trumpster fire.

Feeling the heat Trump resorts to threats and displays his ignorance of the Constitution and Federal laws:

Washington (CNN) — President Donald Trump threatened on Saturday night to sue top congressional Democrats Rep. Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi amid the House impeachment inquiry into the President.

Trump, who has a long track record of calling for lawsuits against his critics and not following through, said, “We’re going to take a look at it. We’re going after these people. These are bad, bad people.” The President was speaking at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC.

Trump said he spoke to his lawyers about Schiff and told them, “Sue him anyway, even if we lose, the American public will understand.” Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence committee, is spearheading the impeachment inquiry.

“And sue Nancy Pelosi,” Trump continued. “Or maybe we should just impeach them, because they’re lying and what they’re doing is a terrible thing for our country.” Members of Congress cannot be impeached, according to the US Constitution.

Actually there is a way to impeach Nancy Pelosi — if Trump and Pence resign, Nancy becomes President and would then be subject to impeachment 😈
