What is Impeachment?

If you have watched the news lately, you know that Trump might face impeachment. But what exactly is impeachment? Many believe that impeachment is the removal of the President from office. In reality, however, impeachment is the indictment by the House of Representatives. For instance, two U.S. presidents were impeached, neither removed from office (i.e., Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton). As Michael Collins puts it, “Impeachment is nothing more than the approval of formal charges against a president…it’s like an indictment in a criminal proceeding.” So, if the House moves to impeach, the Senate will determine whether the President gets removed from office. An unlikely event--an event never to occur in American history.

In other words, if President Trump is impeached, he might very well continue to serve out his term. As Tara Law explains in the Time article “What to Know About the U.S. Presidents, “… history shows that if a President is to be impeached, the biggest factor may be political will — whether members of a President’s own party are willing to turn against him, and whether enough members of Congress believe that trying to remove the President is worth the risk of losing popular support.”

Congress, Think Twice

Lastly, the 2020 Presidential Election is not that far off. Why not let the people themselves decide if they want Trump to continue as President? Perhaps this is why there is so much hesitation on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s part, no?

In conclusion, if the Congress fails to impeach and remove Trump, we already had the preview of what Trump will say—or tweet. A ‘witch hunt’ is the way he has described it in the past. Plus, Pelosi and Schumer ought to embrace themselves for a whole array of new nicknames. In light of all this, perhaps an impeachment trial is not the way to go, right?

      My opinion is that impeachment talks started the day after Trump won the presidency, and it continues today. It will most likely continue until the 2020 presidential election.

      The reason is that it gives the democrats a political platform, the same one the Hillary used and cost her the election. That platform is we hate Trump, and we are not Trump.

      They even tried to mirror the Trump mantra of MAGA by saying the America was already great. A mantra that flies in the fate of facts.

      The impeachment also gives them a political advantage by telling the same lies about president Trump until people believe it must be the truth.

      It would take an extremely stupid person to vote against their own best interests. Well, that's the sort of persons who are democrats in the House of Representatives, and stupid is the sorts of persons who voted those persons into office.

      Things have only got better in the United States of America under the outstanding policies and leadership of Donald J. Trump.
