• Ken Starr Says Impeachment Evidence Against Trump: ‘Nowhere Close’

    Surge Summary: Former Independent Counsel Ken Starr – who has some experience with matters involving presidential impeachment – weighs in on the case against Donald Trump: To his mind the evidence against the president is not nearly enough to drive him from office.

    Former Independent Counsel Ken Starr [last Thursday] offered his summary of the impeachment hearings, saying:

    “My assessment of the evidence [thus] far? Nowhere close. . .  So, the record at the end of the day is likely to be ambiguous at best, conflicting at best . . . and you shouldn’t charge and you cannot convict a sitting president on the basis of conflicting and ambiguous evidence, and destabilize the American government.”

    Starr went on to say that while Democrats may not like the way Trump conducts his foreign policy, “It is not the stuff of impeachment.”

    Meanwhile, the president and his Senate supporters are obviously feeling confident.  There is breaking news that the White House and Senate Republicans have agreed that if the House approves articles of impeachment there will be a full Senate trial “of some length” in order to provide for “a factual affirmative defense on the merits.”
