Federalist Society bigwig says Trump’s election-delay tweet is grounds for immediate impeachment

Steven Calabresi is a Northwestern University law professor and co-founder of the uber-conservative Federalist Society. And he thinks Donald Trump’s latest fascist tweet is, well, fascist.

“I have voted Republican in every presidential election since 1980, including voting for Donald Trump in 2016. I wrote op-eds and a law review article protesting what I believe was an unconstitutional investigation by Robert Mueller. I also wrote an op-ed opposing President Trump’s impeachment.

“But I am frankly appalled by the president’s recent tweet seeking to postpone the November election. Until recently, I had taken as political hyperbole the Democrats’ assertion that President Trump is a fascist. But this latest tweet is fascistic and is itself grounds for the president’s immediate impeachment again by the House of Representatives and his removal from office by the Senate.”

Hmm, I originally transcribed that as “I hate voted Republican …” That may have been more accurate, actually.

So in case you didn’t catch “Donald Trump’s Mussolini Minute” on Thursday morning, here’s what Calabresi is talking about:

My question: Why did anyone ever think Donald Trump cared about the Constitution? These conservative enablers are the most gullible rubes on the planet.

Any government official irregardless of party that does not ouright condemn Trump’s tweet of delaying the election as being unconstitutional should resign immediately as by their lack of condemnation they are enabling Trump’s fascist rhetoric.

They have been asked to resign numerous times already. To resign one must have some form of decency. A belief of country over party. Both Bill Barr and Mike Pompeo have shown No signs of either. Vote blue, your life depends on it.

They take that as the only impeachable
thing Flump has said? Where have they been the last 3 years? But that’s fine we’ll take it!
