Is Impeachment a "Liberal Fantasy"?
The issue of whether or not Donald Trump taped conversations with James Comey was raised several times during Comey’s dramatic testimony Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, prompting the question of whether a smoking gun exists that could lead to President Trump’s impeachment for obstruction of justice. "It’s a liberal fantasy to talk about impeaching Trump," says Mehdi Hasan. "I don’t think this House of Representatives, this Republican Congress, has any interest in impeaching Donald Trump. Even if you were to produce a video of Trump talking in Russian to Putin asking for his marching orders, I suspect Paul Ryan and co. would not decide to impeach him."
