    I've been trying to get through the last season of Game of Thrones. I knew it wasn't well received going into it, but the first two episodes were good, and I really liked the second. The third made...

    I'm only up to episode two, but it does seem better than season 2 was. Low bars, though. I don't think I'd go so far to say that it's better than every episode of every other Marvel show - Daredevil...

    Also agreed that the point is moot, because if Congress wanted to impeach Trump, they have the charge of obstruction. That's what Clinton was impeached for, so precedent is pretty firm.

    It's definitely open to argument, and it's not strictly defined. I remember the Democrats were arguing pretty hard back in the Clinton era that "misdemeanor" was relative to "high crimes", and that...

    The double jeopardy clause says nobody can "be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb", so you need to be put in jeopardy once before it activates. I believe you can...

    Obstruction is independent of the crime being investigated. Interfering with an investigation is a crime no matter what the investigation would have found otherwise.
