"HIGH CRIMES"??? Hell, I think if a government of…


Hell, I think if a government official commits ANY crime in office, s/he should lose his/her office. Except maybe a parking ticket, a moving violation, ‘simple’ trespassing (except in the process of abusing power), simple lying to cover-up an extramarital affair, some minute and harmless technicality s/he sincerely didn’t know about, stuff like that.

(BTW, as you may remember from the Clinton business, “misdemeanors” in the Constitution merely meant “misdeeds,” it didn’t have its current technical meaning of “crimes that don’t rise to a felony.” So it doesn’t answer my comments above. I believe the term may have been employed to cover things that might not have been technically “crimes,” but would still judiciously be found to constitute “high…misdeeds.”)
