Once again, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, is under hot water facing possible articles of impeachment from the Senate.
In a press release on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said they’re going to move forward with the articles of impeachment against the President.
Even though there have been multiple incidents that both Democrats and Republicans have used to call for impeachment (the President’s past sexual misconduct, his outrageous tweets and his support of ICE), the House has been holding trials to investigate a call where Trump had urged Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, to investigate former Vice-President, Joe Biden.
House Democrats are now filing impeachment charges against Trump for obstruction of justice.
The United States government has plenty of reasons to pick from to impeach the President. The United States government also has many reasons to approve of his work, i.e. foreign relations with North Korea and elimination of power of ISIS.
With all this in mind, I want to propose a call-to-action for the citizens of the United States: push for impeachment against those deserving, not just opposing parties or candidates.
The initiative to impeach President Trump has not been an unbiased one. Leanings towards his impeachment have been heavily-influenced by the democratic party.
What I want for members and supporters of all parties is to be open to eliminating the “rotten apples” from their own baskets.
Not one president has been without his own share of controversy: 193 drone-operated airstrikes took place under Barack Obama, including one on a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, killing 42 citizens; Operation Iraqi Freedom was initiated under George W. Bush on a promise to find “weapons of mass destruction,” to which none were found and soon caused an adverse effect on the “war on terror”; the siege of the Branch Davidian cult compound in Waco was initiated under Bill Clinton killed a total of 82 men, women and children. The list continues down each President.
With just a Google search, one can find extensive lists of controversies under each President’s name, all worthy of facing impeachment. As citizens, we shouldn’t just criticize the “wild” politicians, but even the ones we initially supported.
