TKC MUST SEE!!! VIEW FROM KANSAS CITY: UMKC PROF BILL BLACK EXAMINES PREZ TRUMP IMPEACHMENT CRISIS!!!
UMKC Prof Bill Black has been a longtime fave of our blog community for his expertise and scholarship in taking apart the rigged financial system.
In this recent clip, the academic's comments really shine when he takes apart the hypocritical nepotism claims from both left and right . . .
Better still, he debunks and corrects legal arguments from both left and right about this debate . . . However, to be fair our Conservative pals won't like his conclusion and position that yes, the Prez is vulnerable to an impeachment argument.
This interview is a rare EXPERT analysis from a knowledgeable source, renowned expert and a person respected throughout KC and the entire nation for well-documented research.
In short, this op/ed conversation matters more than trolling, tweeting and the same old cable TV news talking points from partisan hacks.
"White collar criminologist Bill Black outlines why the case against Trump was strong even without a quid pro quo with Ukraine, and that his defense strategy now gives reason for obstruction of justice charges."
