About this Episode

What is the definition of a fact, and how can you convey those facts with authority? Several law professors spar on the alleged high crimes of President Trump, on which they have fundamental disagreement, in our look at the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment inquiry hearings.

Listen to this episode to find out:

  • How Democrats set the foundation, and how Republicans erode that foundation one bit at a time.
  • Is this "Just the facts" examination a political circus, or something more – a close look at tactics of how we come to know truth?
  • Why Rep. Collins (R-Ga) gives one witness free reign to comment on anything that he wanted to say
  • The founders' interpretations of the powers of Kings. Could Baron Trump actually become "a Baron" in nobility?
  • "The Clock and the Calendar" and how simple household concepts can build familiarity with an argument that might not hold muster
  • The magic ratio that one witness speaks of, between an impeachment's foundation and it's weight
  • And more!
