Former staff assistant to President Gerald Ford and Saint Louis University Law professor Greg Willard lends his expertiese to Randy surrounding the impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

"I don't think that it is credible, on a Saturday morning or otherwise, to say that what President Trump was doing in that phone call was that he was carrying out his constitutaional duty when he was talking to  the President of Ukraine," says Willard.

Willard continues, "there is no indication, none, that the President had discussed this with the FBI, with the criminal investigators at the Treasury Department or otherwise.  If this truly was a criminal investigation that Donald Trump was leading for the United States government, I'm sure we would have heard that by now.  It wasn't."

The constitutional law and presidential power expert says, "there are some serious allegations that have been made [against the Biden family.]"   

Willard says when looking at the Biden allegations, "don't fall victim to the trap that has been set in the public square by political folks on both sides of the aisle.  The trap is that there are some really bad things that went on in the 2016 campaign and in relation to that. Those have been and continue to be investigated."
