Editor: Professor Noah Feldman, who helped the democrats make their silly case for impeaching President Donald Trump, now says Trump cannot be impeached until Speaker Nancy Pelosi sends the articles of impeachment to the Senate. He makes a good case that Trump is not technically impeached, and will not be impeached until Pelosi does this procedural step.

As for the headlines after the House vote saying, “Trump Impeached” — those words are media symbolic, not a legal statement. The lack of action on Pelosi’s behalf provides a source of embarrassment to the media, which gleefully reported that the president has been impeached.

Pelosi is slow-walking the process because she “thinks” Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. Lindsey Graham intend to acquit the president.

By acquitting the president rapidly, the hot news is ‘taken away’ from the Democrats.

Prof. Feldman is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and helped write the Iraqi constitution after the 2003 invasion led to a new regime after Saddam Hussein.

Feldman sought to make the Iraqi government into a “representative theocracy”, adding components of Sharia Law to its Constitution.

Feldman is a harsh critic of Orthodox Judaism, claiming that he was ‘disowned’ by Orthodox Jews for his decision to marry a Korean woman not of his faith.

Feldman has a PhD in “Islamic Thought” (Oxford 1994) and because of this he joined in the writing of the Iraqi constitution in 2005. He promoted radical Islamic influences, sparking criticism from foreign policy experts in the Obama administration.

And Trump strongly advised against this decision when he was a private citizen.

Prof. Noah Feldman is extremely concerned that Trump will “never be impeached”.

Trump has not been impeached but charged (accused). As some have eluded the house was a grand jury and as they say a ham sandwich can be indicted. The charges to be brought before the senate for trail are weak and pathetic.

Is there some reason Republiscums are as dumb as a box of Palin's? Let's see if we can make this understandable to even the dumbest - "Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body levels charges against a government official. Impeachment does not in itself remove the official definitively from office; it is similar to an indictment in criminal law, and thus it is essentially the statement of charges against the official."

And by the way the low-life, IMPEACHED scum will face "trial" in the Senate.

Whine, cry and stomp your feet... Trump will be reelected

Only by cheating - again. What is it with these Russian operatives and their thinking the rest of us are stupid?

I understand the difference of opinion in regards to the first charge, 'Abuse of Power' but for the life of me I don't understand voting against the second charge, 'Obstruction of Congress'. How can any self-respecting American representative who has taken an oath to defend and protect the Constitution of The United States vote against the Obstruction of Congress charge? There has been no effort by tRUMP to hide his complete and total disregard for Congress's constitutional responsibility to investigate possible violations of our Constitution. Up to this point all we have seen is the investigation, the time for a trial is when the Senate takes up the Impeachment trial. At least the two Arizona Senators have come out as impartial before the trial, can't say the same for McConnell and Graham...

How can you argue that he didn't obstruct justice when he blocked witnesses from testifying and absolutely ignored all subpoena's. Trump clearly sent a message he is above the law. Now it will be interesting to see if any Republicans uphold their oath to be impartial in the Senate hearing.

Everything up to now has been an investigation, period. Doesn't matter whether or not we agree on the investigation, it's been an investigation. Now it is up to the Senate to hold the trial. This is the time for witnesses and defenses and the fact that tRUMP is using McConnell to bar witnesses from testifying speaks volumes to tRUMP's guilt.

All I hear is hate talk about Trump but I never hear any love talk about any of the dem's candidates in any of the comments in this news site. What democrat candidate would be great for USA and why?

HwyRovr

To be as succinct as possible, any of the Democratic candidates would be great for our nation when put up against the low-life scum currently slithering around in our White House. Hope that helps.

Typical trumpublican reasoning - "One guy is saying what I want to hear. 10,000 others are saying he's wrong. I'm going with the one who says what I want to hear."

deaton

Obviously the same reasoning you use, repeatedly subscribing to the “talking points” of Rachel’s Rangers on MSNBC! What was that about “glass houses” and throwing stones? [thumbup][beam] Deaton

Dawn King

Okay. If the twittler in chief has not been impeached, then what exactly is there to send to the Senate?

VA172

Once the articles are delivered to the Senate, you can then say Trump is impeached.

I agree he’s been impeached! However, if Sheriff Nancy fails to transmit the “articles” to the Senate the question is “moot” and I believe the Senate will dismiss for lack of prosecution, making the House Dems look even more partisan and deranged then they seem now! [thumbup][beam] Deaton

Poor sad, pathetic, loser Republiscums. You keep on telling yourselves the low-life scum has not been impeached. Once the articles of impeachment have been handed to the Senate what will your next stupid argument be?

VA172

Once the articles are delivered to the Senate, you can then say Trump is impeached. My question is what are the Democrats going to do after the Senate acquits him. Oh, whine about an unfair process like what happened in Congress. Now Pelosi thinks she can dictate how the Senate trial is going to be run. Not going to happen.

HwyRovr

When the scummy Repubgliscums fail to do their duty with integrity no one is going to whine. We all know the low-life, useless Republiscums in the Senate are not going to uphold their oath - no surprise there - but the lying, loser-in-chief will go down in history as having been IMPEACHED and watching the scummy POS whine and whine will be worth it. And why is Moscow Mitch so adamant about not allowing witnesses?

bob b

Why didn't Schiff allow the Republicans to call Biden as a witness during the House charade? There were no factual witnesses in the whole hearing, thanks to the Dimocratic Party. There was no evidence presented. I am glad that you accept such little triumphs in your pathetic life.

HavasuGuy

I have to laugh every time I see a tRUMP supporter cry, "Biden should have been forced to testify". What does Biden have to do with tRUMP's actions? Are you saying that Biden has info about what tRUMP did in another country? You guys are amazing with your deflect and pass logic... It was an investigative inquiry, not a trial... tRUMP has been impeached, period.

HavasuGuy

Just ask yourself, why would anyone stop witnesses from testifying if the witnesses could show that they are innocent???

HavasuGuy

Hey Va172, do you realize that the House of Representatives and the Senate ARE Congress??? You are just proving what tRUMP said when he was campaigning, "I like uneducated voters"...

VA172

I do believe you know exactly what I meant. You are acting like your twin brother Rovr.

deaton

Let me see rovR **, I think that will be dismissed and/or acquitted, and the President will continue in Office through to 2021 continuing on to January 2015, much to your disgust and irrational raving [thumbup][beam] Deaton

HwyRovr

"HwyRovr" - Do you honestly think anyone believes the low-life scum will be removed from office? Numerous Republiscums have made it clear they will not follow their oath to judge the scum with integrity and he like the snake he is he will slither back into his den. However he is IMPEACHED and that stain will remain with him forever and hopefully the American people he has shafted will wake up and make certain he is not allowed to return to our White House, which will require major renovation and fumigation once he and his grifter family are kicked out.

I think First Lady Melania has brought the same Class to the White House as Jackie in the 1960’s [thumbup][beam] Deaton

HavasuGuy

Which class is that Deaton, the immigrant class?

VA172

I do believe she has much more class than the last 1st lady.
