Should There Be No Impeaching of the President?

Should There Be No Impeaching of the President? October 13, 2019

Some Republican members of Congress are saying a president should not be impeached but that the removal of a president from office should only be done by the voting public in an election. For example, Andrew Card was White Chief-of-Staff in the George W. Bush administration from 2001 to 2006. He just now said this on TV on MSNBC on the “Weekends with Alex Witt” program.

No way! It’s in the Constitution. Framers knew what they were doing. How so? It’s obvious. A president could be quite guilty of “crimes and misdemeanors,” as the Constitution states, as soon as he or she took office and the public could have clear proof of it. Yet, according to people like Mr. Card, we should have to wait four years while such a president continues abusing the office before he or she could be removed by a presidential election, which happens every four years. That makes no sense! Let the crook go on being a crook for four year before we do anything about it. All that time he or she hurts our nation, its reputation around the world, and perhaps the world itself.
