Legal Advisory Board Member Professor Laurence Tribe Outlines Need for Impeachment in The Washington Post

Following the firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Donald Trump last week, Harvard Law Professor and member of the Campaign to Impeach Donald Trump Now’s Legal Advisory Board Laurence Tribe outlined the rationale for impeachment proceedings to begin immediately.

“To wait for the results of the multiple investigations underway is to risk tying our nation’s fate to the whims of an authoritarian leader,” wrote Professor Tribe in The Washington Post.

He went on to conclude, “Whether it is devotion to principle or hunger for political survival that puts the prospect of impeachment and removal on the table, the crucial thing is that the prospect now be taken seriously, that the machinery of removal be reactivated, and that the need to use it become the focus of political discourse going into 2018.”
