The school got caught, took a lot of heat and ultimately scrubbed Trump’s name from the course but we all know what was going on here.

Campus Reform reports:

SDSU impeachment course no longer explicitly referencing Trump

After receiving significant public backlash, San Diego State University has tweaked the name of a course that it claims was never about removing President Trump from office.

According to The San Diego Union Tribune, the university announced Wednesday that the original course title–“Trump: Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction?”–was “inconsistent with the course content described,” and that the title will be revised to excise Trump’s name.

“The course presents an overall framework of impeachment, removal, or criminal investigation of a president and rather than focusing on President Trump, reviews all 19 impeachments in U.S. history,” the university explained, adding that “the one-unit, weekend class is not a requirement for graduation and is not paid for by state funds.”

However, the university did not address the fact that the only required text for the course is Allan Lichtman’s The Case for Impeachment, which examines various ways that Trump, specifically, could potentially be removed from office.

Trump’s name has already been removed from the course title on the school’s online catalog, which now reads simply “Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction.”

The course description remains the same, however, stating that “focus will be on the two constitutional grounds: impeachment and removal (25th Amendment), and the possible charges of the independent counsel, the powers of the president,” and “a history of the creation of [the presidency] and the comparison of divine right and rule of law leadership.”

A quick browse of memeorandum yesterday show, the 25th Amendment route is once again on the minds of the Democrats with bylines.

    And it still makes no sense. Removing a president against his will using the 25th amendment is harder than doing so through impeachment. It takes all of the same people as impeachment does, plus a whole lot more, none of whom are likely to want to do this.

    The 25th amendment exists for two purposes: Removing a president who does not object but is incapable of resigning; and removing a loved and respected president who’s lost it, without having to embarrass him by impeachment. It is simply not designed or suitable for removing a president who doesn’t want to go, and whom you don’t mind impeaching.
