One possible reason is fear of retribution. The victim is worried about what their angry, resentful partner might do if they get arrested […]

Impeached President Trump (IPT) wants to rule for life. Can Bolton stop him?

Trump dodged a constitutional legal bullet today when his senatorial enablers voted to excuse him for his criminal behavior, tossing aside articles of impeachment on abuse of power (48-52) and obstruction of Congress (47-53).

The issue — and it is always the issue […]

I can see clearly now

I want to state at the outset that I’m not a former Harvard Law professor, nor am I an expert on constitutional law. Maybe that’s why I’m unable to formulate a response to Alan Dershowitz, who stood before the U.S. Senate yesterday and claimed that if President Donald J. Trump believes his re-election is in […]
