The Time has Come, The Time is Now

March 11, 2018

As we approach Trump’s first 14 months in office — 14 months without any appreciable accomplishments — you have to wonder, “How much more can we take?” How much longer can the United States afford to have a president whose major feat has been to piss off the leaders of countries who used to be our best friends.

At the same time, he woos the world’s tyrants from his best friend, Russia’s Putin, to Rodrigo Duterte of The Philippines, Recep Erdogan of Turkey, and even Xi Jinping of China. Merkel, Macron, and May are all suspicious, while Trump praises the likes of Kim Jong-un.

Let’s Get it On

The call for Trump’s impeachment is growing. Every day there are a half dozen or more articles published on the Internet calling for the ouster of The Dotard. My purpose here is to curate those articles.

Every day I dig through the Internet looking for the best articles regarding the need to impeach Trump or otherwise the articles that best present the #NeverTrump argument. Then each day I prepare a list linking to these articles to make it easy for you to find the most provocative, well-thought articles on the subject.

About ImpeachIT!

After 14 months it seemed like it was time to seriously start thinking about impeaching the worst president in history.

Article II, Section 4 of the US Constitution says:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment  for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

There is evidence the Founding Fathers intentionally were vague. At first, the founders considered defining impeachable offenses as only “treason and bribery”. They added the extra phrase on grounds that “treason or bribery” was insufficient for removing a president who displayed dictatorial tendencies.

“High Crimes and Misdemeanors” has a well-defined meaning–it refers to so-called “political crimes”. A crime is “political” when it involves the misuse of a politician’s official powers. If, for instance, the president accepts a bribe, it’s a political crime. Support for this theory comes from contemporary speeches as well as the Federalist Papers.

Trump is clearly guilty of High Crimes and Misdemeanors, the political crimes portion of Art. II, Sec. 4.
