by Lanny Davis – 2/1/18 The visible tip of the iceberg was James Comey’s Oct. 28, 2016, letter to Congress.

It’s Time For A Trump Impeachment Investigation To Begin

by Lanny Davis – 2/1/18 I keep asking myself: If a Democratic president had conducted himself — or herself — as Donald Trump has in the first year, would I favor the beginning of an impeachment process?
