The Donald is proving himself to be a constitutional ignoramus, a liar or both.
From NBC News:
"Article II allows me to do whatever I want,” Trump told ABC News in June.
"Then I have an Article II, where I have the right to do whatever I want as president,” he said in Washington in July.
Article II of the Constitution establishes the executive branch and outlines the presidency’s power. It does grant the president a lot of power, but it does not say he can do whatever he wants, unfettered. What's more, Article II of the Constitution also outlines impeachment as a recourse for a problematic president: “The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
Article I of the Constitution deputizes lawmakers in the process: the House is given the powers of impeachment, while the Senate is tasked with trying and deciding whether to remove an individual who has been impeached.
