MOV­ING TO PLAN D

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“Democrats trot out Plan C in their never-end­ing Trump im­peach­ment cru­sade,” notes a new In­vestor’s Busi­ness Daily ed­i­to­rial, re­fer­ring to three sep­a­rate law­suits filed by le­gal schol­ars, the District of Columbia and state of Mary­land plus 200 Demo­cratic law­mak­ers. The law­suits claim that Pres­i­dent Trump vi­o­lated the emol­u­ments clause of the U.S. Con­sti­tu­tion, which bars elected of­fi­cials from ac­cept­ing com­pen­sa­tion from for­eign pow­ers with­out the per­mis­sion of Congress.

“This is sim­ply an­other de­spi­ca­ble at­tempt by Democrats to hob­ble a pres­i­dent they don’t like and overturn an elec­tion they re­gret, us­ing any means nec­es­sary to do so. If Plan A (claim­ing Trump’s cam­paign col­luded with Rus­sians) won’t fly, and if Plan B (say­ing he tried to ob­struct jus­tice) doesn’t end up hav­ing legs — then it’s time to move to Plan C, fil­ing laugh­able emol­u­ments law­suits,” the ed­i­to­rial says.

“It makes one won­der how far down the al­pha­bet we’ll have to go be­fore we get to a Demo­cratic plan that in­volves en­gag­ing in a civil de­bate with Trump over pub­lic poli­cies to meet the ur­gent needs of the coun­try. Do they even have such a plan?”
