1/3 There was some confusion about the part of the @ECMcLaughlin thread I questioned.

I questioned one of her legal opinions. Part of the exchange is here👇 but part was in response to others commenting on her thread who offered ways to immediately remove Trump.


I was genuinely curious how Trump could possibly be removed immediately.

I don't believe arresting a president renders him immediately unfit for office. If it were this easy, any local sheriff or state prosecutor could remove any sitting president.

People asked me. . .

. . . specifically if I witnessed anything like @ECMcLaughlin described.

I personally didn't hear of anything like that during this stint of volunteering, and the clients I worked with (a very tiny sample) reported nothing out of the ordinary.
