Trump followers must be extremely desperate for a rally, a slogan hat or a false hero. Believing the Trump talking point that he saved America with this great economy that he built is really pathetic. He inherited a great economy from the man who triggers his pathological jealousy and insecurity, Barack Obama. Had Trump inherited the disastrous economy that Obama inherited from George W. Bush, we would all be counting pennies to buy milk. To get credit for not ruining something that was already rock solid is ridiculous. Trump’s disregard of his oath to uphold the laws in the Constitution is why the House must impeach him.
Democrats must stop worrying about the pending acquittal that the dysfunctional, Senate is going to deliver. The House Democrats will do their job and deliver a message that educates the public that a president who gets impeached has committed crimes. Impeachment is an indictment. Impeachment is not pursued because the majority does not respect a president or their policies. Impeachment is not about a vendetta or an attempt to reverse an election. Impeachment is about checks and balances on the behavior of a president.
Trump supporters must not believe the Republican talking point that the impeachment inquiry is a witch hunt. No past House of Representatives has ever impeached a president who was not found to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors. Attempting to bribe and extort a foreign country to investigate a political opponent meets these impeachable criteria. Withholding military aid that has been approved by the Congress for political gain meets impeachable criteria. There is extensive evidence that Trump has committed such acts.
When hearing about the Trump extortion call to Ukraine President Zelensky, credible Republican Trump appointees from the State Department became concerned for our national security. When they reported what they knew was happening with Trump and Giulani’s attempt to extort Ukraine to investigate the Biden’s and the 2016 Russia investigation, they were told by Pompeo and his representatives to stand down. America is fortunate that these ambassadors and diplomats are brave patriots and have been willing to expose the dangerous level of corruption occurring by the White House, the State Department and the Department of Justice.
Democrats must send the message to Trump supporters that an acquittal by the Senate will merely mean the jury was biased. Based on the evidence documenting what Trump said on the call to Zelensky and his knowledge of Giuliani’s shadow diplomacy activity to sabotage the State Departments’ efforts to fight corruption in Ukraine, his removal from office should be the outcome of the Senate trial. Impeachment is an outcome that stands on its own as a stain on the integrity of a president. Despite any accomplishment that a president may have accomplished, the United States of America should not accept any action that compromises our national security.
THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS OTHER CANDIDATES THAT COULD SERVE OUR COUNTRY AND UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION INSTEAD OF DISRESPECTING IT LIKE TRUMP DOES. BLIND LOYALTY TO TRUMP IS NOT ABOUT REPUBLICAN PRIDE. IT IS ABOUT A DANGEROUS MOVEMENT TOWARDS AUTOCRACY AND THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR DEMOCRACY. WE SHOULD ALL BE SCARED IF WHAT TRUMP IS DOING BECOMES THE ACCEPTABLE NORM FOR US PRESIDENTS.
