‘Immediate Impeachment’: Federalist Society Co-Founder Breaks With Trump Over ‘Fascistic’ Call to Delay Elections

The co-founder of the right wing Federalist Society is not ony breaking with President Donald Trump, he is calling for Trump’s “immediate impeachment” over the president’s call to delay the election. The Federalist Society is the group Trump outsourced his judge selection process to. It once included Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia among its earliest members.

“I am frankly appalled by the president’s recent tweet seeking to postpone the November election,” writes Steven G. Calabresi in a Thursday afternoon New York Times op-ed.

“Until recently, I had taken as political hyperbole the Democrats’ assertion that President Trump is a fascist. But this latest tweet is fascistic and is itself grounds for the president’s immediate impeachment again by the House of Representatives and his removal from office by the Senate.”

Calabresi goes on to say that “President Trump needs to be told by every Republican in Congress that he cannot postpone the federal election. Doing so would be illegal, unconstitutional and without precedent in American history. Anyone who says otherwise should never be elected to Congress again.”
