And if a Senate trial comes to pass, ... That’s when Trump’s behavioral and psychological characteristics should — must — come into play. From the evidence, it appears that he simply can’t stop himself from putting his own interests above the nation’s. Any serious impeachment proceedings should consider not only the evidence and the substance of all impeachable offenses, but also the psychological factors that may be relevant to the motivations underlying those offenses. Congress should make extensive use of experts — psychologists and psychiatrists. Is Trump so narcissistic that he can’t help but use his office for his own personal ends? Is he so sociopathic that he can’t be trusted to follow, let alone faithfully execute, the law?The obvious conclusion is that Conway has Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Congress should consider all this because that’s what the question of impeachment demands. But there’s another reason as well. The people have a right to know, and a need to see. Many people have watched all of Trump’s behavior, and they’ve drawn the obvious conclusion. They know something’s wrong, just as football fans knew that the downed quarterback had shattered his leg.
Conway's complaints are almost entirely about Trump's personality, as if the Constitution said that impeachment is for high crimes, misdemeanors, and annoying personality types. The most annoying is that he is not easily manipulated by others. He fights back against his attackers, and his enemies hate him for it.
