Feldman says Trump’s actions are “precisely” what the framers anticipated

Noah Feldman of Harvard Law School testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the framers of the Constitution created impeachment for actions that align “precisely” with what President Trump is accused of doing. “The framers reserved impeachment for situations where the president abused his office. … In particular, they were specifically worried about a situation where the president used his office to facilitate his own reelection,” Feldman said. “… That is precisely what the framers anticipated.”
