IMPEACHED!

For only the third time in the history of our republic, a President of the United States has been impeached. In my opinion, no previous President has been more deserving of this dubious honor. Donald J. Trump earned it, and he earned it in spades.

It can not be acceptable for a President of the United States to solicit and encourage interference in our electoral processes. It can not be acceptable for the executive branch to stonewall the legislative branch and completely deny that the legislative branch has any right to conduct oversight of the executive. In our republic, the executive is not a monarch. He (or she) may not refuse to cooperate with a legislative branch investigation. The executive serves as the AGENT of the people, and he or she is subject to the oversight of the people as defined in the Article I LEGISLATIVE BRANCH of our government, i.e. Congress.

I wish to express my deepest respect and sincere appreciation for Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff, Chairman Nadler, and all the other courageous members of Congress who stood up for the Constitution today. As Democrats, we can hold our heads high, now, and say that we did all that we could, and that we did what was right, in defense of our republic. Furthermore, we did so without regard for the outcome in our cowardly Senate which will, in all likelihood, rubber-stamp the authoritarian, repugnant, and unconstitutional behavior of our current President. I am proud of us.

Cheers, and Happy Impeachment Day!
