“impeachment would not remedy Trump’s unconstitutional presidency”
Robert Reich, who served as Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration, has taken on a new role as a leader of the progressive resistance movement. Like many others on the left, Reich is taking unhinged rhetoric to new levels.
In a recent post on his website, Reich suggested that impeaching Trump would not be enough. His presidency must be annulled:
Don’t Just Impeach Trump. Annul His Presidency
The only way I see the end of Trump is if there’s overwhelming evidence he rigged the 2016 election. In which case impeachment isn’t an adequate remedy. His presidency should be annulled.
Let me explain.
Many people are convinced we’re already witnessing the beginning of the end of Trump.
In their view, bombshell admissions from Trump insiders with immunity from prosecution, combined with whatever evidence Robert Mueller uncovers about Trump’s obstruction of justice and his aide’s collusion with the Russians, will all tip the scales…
Impeachment would remedy Trump’s “high crimes and misdemeanors.” But impeachment would not remedy Trump’s unconstitutional presidency because it would leave in place his vice president, White House staff and Cabinet, as well as all the executive orders he issued and all the legislation he signed, and the official record of his presidency.
The only response to an unconstitutional presidency is to annul it. Annulment would repeal all of it – recognizing that such appointments, orders, rules, and records were made without constitutional authority.
Tucker Carlson discussed this with Mark Steyn last night, suggesting that the left has nowhere left to go in words and that the next thing which could happen is a suggestion of violence. Steyn agreed, saying that the left has refused to accept the peaceful transfer of power and that it is harmful to the country.

Tucker: Robert Reich Calls for Trump’s Presidency to Be ‘Annulled’, Setting a New Liberal Extreme
Tucker Carlson warned Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that the rhetoric on the left is becoming increasingly extreme when it comes to many liberals’ criticisms of President Donald Trump…
Carlson said that Reich’s statement effectively calls for Trump to be “erased from history and forgotten by decree.”
“[If] reality isn’t tolerable, it should be banned,” Carlson said in characterizing Reich.
He added that ex-CIA Director John Brennan reiterated his characterization of Trump as having committed “treason,” adding that Brennan again accused the president of a “death penalty offense.”
Carlson said that Brennan and Reich show that leftist ire toward Trump has gone from calling him a racist to calling him a traitor to calling him a “non-person who must be erased from our collective memory.”
“The left is out of epithets, all that’s left is physical harm,” Carlson warned.
