"Our democracy is what is at stake."--Speaker Pelosi


Recommended Posts

" The president leaves us no choice but to act because he is trying to corrupt, once again, the election for his own benefit. The president has engaged in abuse of power undermining our national security and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections. His actions are in defiance of the vision of our founders and the oath of office that he takes to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Pelosi echoes a sentiment that many of us have expressed. Impeachment is not without political risk and it should not be done lightly. There needs to be a clear threat to the constitution or it will be perceived as a political maneuver. 
 

When he attempt to bribe/extort Ukraine, this president didn’t just abuse his power for personal gain. He attempted to undermine an American election. He declared himself as being above congressional oversight, thereby threatening the constitutional balance of power. His attempt at witness intimidation represented a degree of presidential bullying that we haven’t seen since Nixon. His promotion of conspiracy theories undermines American security.

 

If Trump is allowed to violate the constitution then it sets a precedent for all future presidents to do the same. Impeachment is necessary, not because of the political situation in America but in spite of it.

Correct. Trump publicly invited foreign nations to subvert our democracy.
