President Trump is at risk of getting impeached for accusing President Obama of illegally spying on him. If Trump has no evidence to back his accusations of his predecessor having committed a criminal activity, then he has committed libel, writes Noah Feldman in Bloomberg. If President Trump's accusation is false, then it should be considered defamatory speech, which is not protected under by the First Amendment, and misconduct by the highest official of the Executive Branch, which deserves impeachment, says Feldman.
President Trump should not get impeached for making allegations via Twitter of Obama wiretapping Trump Tower. While Trump has said and done things that call into question his mental capabilities to serve as President, his wiretap rant on Twitter is not what he should be impeached over, writes Martin Longman in Washington Monthly. While there may be other issues that are cause for removal of Trump from office, the greater issue at hand is how to get Trump to be less careless with his power and resources.
