The Wrong Way
Nancy Pelosi let her frustration with Donald Trump, on the one hand, and her caucus on the other hand, get away from her.
It was shameful. It is the wrong way, that is the Trump way.
In a private meeting the Speaker of the House said that she does not want to see Donald Trump impeached, she wants to see him in prison.
Take no comfort in that.
Donald Trump is a criminal. His administration is illegitimate, but he must be removed from office before we can put him on trial for his crimes.
Apologists for the speaker are saying that there is no harm in her words, she is playing the same card e plays when Donald Trump calls for the prosecution and imprisonment of his political opponents.
That is not how America is supposed to work. We cannot let our leaders speak that way about their rivals, that road leads to the undoing of our representative democracy, and the dissolution of the republic.
We cannot leave a criminal in office. He must be impeached.
Open the inquiry now. Hold each member of congress accountable for their vote.
Put Donald Trump on trial in the Senate, hold each senator accountable for their vote.
Expose the fake president for the criminal that he is.
Do it now; duty demands it.
Let it play out as it will.
Show courage, this is not the ginned up impeachment of Bill Clinton, this is something else.
This is what your oath of office demands.
