Something good happened this week in Washington D.C., it doesn’t matter what the motivation for it was. It was good and it doesn’t matter that the impeachment of Donald Trump was a partisan affair, though it is a stain on our societal-conscience that it had to be. What matters is that the man was impeached and that is good.
It was just.
Donald Trump conspired with a foreign adversary to win the presidency, he has been lying to the American people about that and many other things since before he took the oath of office.
He has committed many crimes since then, including fraud, perjury, abuse of power, obstruction of justice, obstruction of congress, and lying to the FBI, submitting false reports to congress, ordering federal agencies to lie to the American people and to produce false reports, and he is profiting from his office by receiving emoluments both from the States, and from foreign governments.
Donald Trump is corrupt to the core and it is good that he has been called to account.
We must do more.
Donald Trump has been protected from being indicted by a Department of Justice policy that does not have the force if law, He has been protected from being investigated for his crimes by his Attorney General, and so his impeachment in the house was the only path forward to hold him accountable.
Despite the best efforts of the Republicans in the House of Representatives the impeachment was passed. The majority of the American people want this man removed from office, but there are no republicans in congress who support it.
They must be voted out as well. Such feckless people cannot be allowed to have access to power. They have violated their trust and their oath of office.
Donald Trump is unworthy of the presidency. The Senate must hold him accountable, remove him from office and bar him from ever seeking to hold federal office again.
It is time for Republicans in the Senate to do the right thing, to stand up for principle, to stand up as patriots and put the orange menace out.
Tear the band-aid off and do it.
Strip Mitch Mc Connell of his office while you are at it, appoint a new majority leader, appoint someone committed to justice, to America, and to protecting our constitution.
Reject the tyrant and his minions, do it now.
Every day that Donald Trump remains in office he poses a threat to the security of the United States. Inauguration day 2021 is to far away.
Donald Trump has sold us out to our adversaries, weekend us on the world stage and he threatens to set the American people against each other in something like a civil war.
The time for action is now.
