(the more things change, the more they stay the same). It is un­be­liev­able that the Pres­i­dent would un­der­mine the ju­di­cial au­thor­ity of the courts in­stead of de­fend­ing it as he is un­der duty to do so un­der the Con­sti­tu­tion.

I am a diehard sup­porter of Nasa and I ex­press my grat­i­tude for the le­gal bat­tle you coura­geously fought in the Supreme Court. Given the threats of im­peach­ment by none other than the in­cum­bent pres­i­dent, how would Nasa sur­vive such a mo­tion since ma­jor­ity are from the op­po­site side?

Pres­i­dent Obama served his sec­ond term with­out a ma­jor­ity in both houses of Congress and there was no sin­gle threat of im­peach­ment. Pres­i­dent Nixon was forced to re­sign when the rod of im­peach­ment was hurled at him de­spite hav­ing a ma­jor­ity in both Houses. Pres­i­dent Keny­atta had a Freudian slip caused by the na­tional pop­u­lar­ity of Raila Odinga and the in­evitabil­ity of his vic­tory glar­ing on the Pres­i­dent’s face. a re­peat of the pres­i­den­tial election? Are there emerg­ing is­sues that war­ranted this?
