About Jack

Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer, its his most important tool.  As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally.  As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

[Nicole Sandler Show - Florida] May 12th: Jack Talks Whether Trump Could be Impeached

I appear on the Nicole Sandler Show out of Florida to discuss a simple question:  Could President Trump be impeached?  And the short answer is, it depends.  The first question is whether he has committed any crimes that could justify removal.  Well, I would have said this was debatable until a recent interview the president had an NBC.  In that interview, he stated that one of the reasons that he fired former FBI Director Jim Comey was because of the ongoing Russia investigation which he claims to consider fake news.  Regardless of what he says, this is a real investigation into criminal wrongdoing.  Anybody who tries to hinder that, a sitting President or otherwise, is potentially guilty of a crime.  Presidents can be removed from office for committing crimes through the process called impeachment. The next step, of course, would require a political process to make that happen.  But, because the Republicans control both Houses of Congress, this is a stumbling block.  We will discuss all of this and more.  

Hope you can listen.

[AM950 Minneapolis] May 12th: Jack Talks Trump and Possible Obstruction

I appear on AM 950 Minneapolis with my buddy Matt McNeil.  President Trump admitted during an interview on NBC that one of the reasons that he fired FBI Director Jim Comey was because of the Russia investigation which he describes as fake news.  Here's the problem.  Its a real investigartion into possible criminal wrongdoing.  If somebody does somethig to impede an investigaiton, one can be charged with a crime, obstruction of legal process.  Again, this is a crime.  Presiden's can be impeached for committing crimes.  Of course, politics plays an enormous role in this.  If we learned nothing following the impeachment of Bill Clinton, we've learned nothing.  

This promises to be an interesting converstion.
