Readers interested in the matters addressed in my two immediately prior posts—relating to Congress’s right to investigate Trump—will probably want to read the take of George Conway and Neal Katyal. Their tone is a bit more rhetorical than mine, but their views complement my own. They agree with me that the courts should rule that Congress can investigate Trump’s wrongdoing, whether or not it’s considering impeachment. That said, they also say that, in the brief to the Second Circuit, the Trump legal team is effectively urging the Democrats to start impeachment proceeding.
I don’t know whether Messrs. Conway and Katyal share my view that goading the Democrats into impeachment would be a truly boneheaded move on Trump’s part.
I suspect they do.
