Colleges aren't even pretending to be anything but indoctrination factories anymore. Case in point: San Diego State University and its course "Trump: Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction?" Did any college ever present an equivalent course during the entire eight years of the Barack Obama presidency?
What can students expect in this one-credit course? Just what you would expect:
Focus will be on the two constitutional grounds: impeachment and removal (25th Amendment), and the possible charges of the independent counsel, the powers of the president, a history of the creation of that office and the comparison of divine right and rule of law leadership, presidential impeachments, including Nixon's de facto impeachment, practically limitless grounds for impeachment, presidential immunity from indictment, and grounds for impeachment, removal, or indictment covering: conflict of interests, foreign emoluments, climate change, racism, religious bias, improper influence, nepotism, and a host of crimes, including conspiracy, false statements, and obstruction of justice.
In lieu of a textbook, students are required to read the 2017 book The Case for Impeachment by Professor Allan J. Lichtman of American University. The book description claims that Lichtman lays out, "in clear, nonpartisan terms," [riiiight] the reasons Congress could remove Trump from office: "his ties to Russia before and after the election, the complicated financial conflicts of interest at home and abroad, and his abuse of executive authority."This is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard, and I spend my days on the internet.
