Mukasy V US Constitution

Former attorney general Michael Mukasy said

“”Whether you impeach somebody doesn’t depend on whether they violate the law,” Mukasey said. “”The president can stay within his lawful powers and still commit an impeachable offense. …”

He totally rejects opposes and declares his contempt for the US Constition which says “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

I am not surprised that garden variety “constitiutional conservatives neither know nor care what is written in the actual document, but Mukasy was our Attorney General.

I humbly express no opinion on whether Mukasy or the Constitution are better guides on the subject. His judgment may be superior to that expressed in the Constitution he swore to uphold. But the fact that a former Attorney General proclaims such utter contempt for the US Constitution must be a cause of concern.
