Pending the Special Prosecutor’s criminal investigation, Congress needs to take urgent action under Article 25 of the Constitution to deal with the more immediate danger of Trump’s future irrational behavior.
Harvard Law professor Larry Tribe, the leading Constitutional scholar and practitioner of his era, advised Congress to “grow a pair” and impeach Trump. Tribe and colleagues had already initiated litigation against Trump under the Foreign Emoluments Clause for his business empire’s conflicts of interest involving foreign countries which could potentially feed what Tribe calls Trump’s “bottomless money pit.” This litigation could take years.
