Impeachment and conviction shouldn’t be only about conduct that satisfies a criminal statute. Impeachment and conviction shouldn’t be about strictly a political question. Impeachment and conviction should also involve questions of morality. No, a president shouldn’t be removed from office for committing adultery. Addultrey is wrong, but it’s not immoral enough to rise to the level of removal from office wrong. Questions of morality should impact impeachment when moral failings have taken place around a president’s official duties and responsibilities. to demonstrate this point, let’s discuss Bill Clinton.
Brenda Wineapple’s The Impeachers covers the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. Given the current impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, The impeachers is an important read. The reality that many don’t understand the Johnson impeachment, makes The Impeachers even more important.
Donald Trump is the least competent person to ever serve as president of the United States. He is also a white supremacist, sexist, ableist, xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic moron who builds his base by encouraging hatred.
I have been in favor of impeachment since the day he took office. I have believed impeachment was the right course of action for Democrats since Mueller stumbled through his weak testimony in July.
Given the events of the last few weeks, it should be obvious that the impeachment of Donald Trump is an absolute must.
With the House finally beginning an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, I decided to read Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s All the President’s Men. The book is about the Watergate scandal and coverup that resulted in Richard Nixon resigning and several members of his administration serving time.
I have been very critical of Robert Muller. I shared my thoughts on Muller’s report. Yesterday, I wrote questions I wanted to see Muller answer today. With as much as I have read about, listened to, and thought about Muller and his report, I would have never imagined his testimony going the way it did.
We are hours away from Robert Muller testifying before the House intelligence and judiciary committees. Even though Muller doesn’t want to testify, and he pledges to stay within the confines of his report, tomorrow’s testimony is critical.
This version of news updates has stories on adding a citizenship question to the census, pay for the women’s soccer team, the legality of the Affordable Care Act, and Iran enriching uranium.
Mueller finally spoke! My thoughts on this are contained in three sections: what he said; unanswered questions; and thoughts on Muller.
The president, vice president, civil officers of the United States, and federal judges can be impeached by the House of Representatives.
