Hell hate no fury like an Alt-Righter scorned!
(And Trump isn’t even in office yet!)
On the Sean Hannity Show (11/15/16), Coulter summarized her (that is, Trump’s) policy agenda and what would befall President Trump should he fail to implement his (that is, her) agenda:
“The wall and deporting illegals … renegotiating trade deals and not starting pointless wars – those are the big ones. If he betrays us on those, they’ll impeach him and there’ll be nobody to defend him.”
In other words, if Trump doesn’t pursue and achieve her policy goals, he should and will be impeached.
High Crimes and Misdemeanors
But, in her 1998 bestseller, High Crimes and Misdemeanors, Coulter declared that impeachment is designed to target “moral misbehavior” and criminal activity, but not policy disputes.
Again, Coulter contradicts herself.
In 1998, Coulter was regarded as an expert on impeachment. In her book, Coulter wrote (emphasis added):
“Personal misconduct took a larger role in impeachments, for example, and policy disputes became irrelevant to impeachable conduct.” (pg. 10).
“One additional distinction the Constitution requires is this: policy disputes are not to be resolved by resort to impeachment.” (pp. 11-12).
“That policy disagreements cannot form the basis for an impeachable offense in this country is more than a logical deduction from the structure and purposes of the Constitution.” (pg. 12)
“Other comments from the framers further demonstrate that the purposes of impeachment did not include policy disputes – but did include personal misconduct.” (pg. 12)
Apparently, the Alt-Right will do whatever it takes – including threaten its standard-bearer – to achieve its goals.
