How did Donald Trump get acquitted from impeachment? Was it corruption or is the entire system broken? Paul Blumenthal joins Jefferson Smith to discuss how a radical new theory, that no president can be removed for abuse of power, has broken our checks and balances. Do you think future presidents will use Trump as a way to avoid accountability for their own issues?
