Thursday on Twitter, former entertainer Barbra Streisand listed six reasons President Trump must be impeached, all fundamentally flawed or false.
“Trump must be impeached,” her tweet began:
1. Trump bribed and extorted the Ukraine with taxpayer money to investigate a political rival for personal gain.
2. Trump believes he is above the law. He thinks presidents can do anything.
3. Trump threatened a witness, a career diplomat, during the impeachment inquiry.
4. Trump clearly lied and obstructed justice in the Mueller investigation.
5. Trump dismisses intelligence briefings about Russia’s role in undermining our democracy, and repeats Kremlin disinformation on Ukraine.
6. Trump is personally profiting from the presidency, violating the emoluments clause. He charges our government to stay at his resorts.
All of these claims are either misleading or completely false. But hey, Streisand’s the law expert.
