@GeorgesSalo @TheEconomist Impeachment is the mechanism to remove the President from office so he can stand trial as a citizen. If he's no longer President, then he doesn't need to be impeached to be charged...

@TheEconomist Indeed. American justice is blind to the victims and awake for the perpetrators. Get a good lawyer in America and one can walk away virtually from anything that one would find oneself guilty in other civilised nations on the planet. Bravo. 👍🏻👌🏻👏🏻

@TheEconomist Are these the same lawyers that allow criminals to walk? That will allow a seditious person to walk away free? American justice seems to be all bending and in favour of the perpetrator rather than the victim. Bravo. 👏🏻👌🏻👍🏻

@TheEconomist If Alan Dershowitz wasn’t trying to avoid prosecution he’d be one of the “some lawyers” quoted in this piece... anyone can be contrarian for the sake of opposition to political process. Doesn’t make it right or justifiable...

@TheEconomist Some lawyers think the election was rigged.
Some lawyers are idiots.

@TheEconomist "Some lawyers reckon...." That's all you need to know that whatever follows is a GARBAGE take.

@TheEconomist I guess the end point should be to open up his corruption cases and tax fraud ...

#MelaniaTrump could’ve been the bridge of peace by welcoming Jill Biden to the WH. Instead, she chose to follow the hateful trait of her husband. Those 2 deserve each other. She’s disgusting.

A sigh of relief around the world on the last day of Trump in the office. But US has to deal with the effects of Trumpism for long time to come.
