Constitutional scholars are not impressed with Trump. "It looks like a pathetic attempt to make a legal argument when the president is really expressing rage at the Congress for trying to stop him," said Corey Brettschneider.

Ambassador Sondland's testimony and documents are vital, and that is precisely why the Administration is now blocking his testimony and withholding his documents.
