Is Impeachment a Good Idea

            The Democrats, liberals, and progressives have been searching for three years for a reason to impeach President Donald Trump, and they think that they have one now. It seems that Trump decided to temporarily hold back about $400 million in aid to Ukraine. There was a bi-partisan demand that the money be sent, so it was sent. However, Trump had a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in July, and a so-called whistleblower thinks that he was using the money to pressure Ukraine to dig up some dirt on Joe Biden. Now the U.S. House of Representatives has decided to hold a formal impeachment inquiry about Trump’s acts.

            The lame stream media is upset because Trump has been saying that Joe Biden used his position as the Vice President of the United States to pressure the Ukraine government to fire its top prosecutor. The prosecutor was allegedly investigating whether there was corruption in a deal that Hunter Bidon made with Burisma Holdings, an energy company in Ukraine that was paying Hunter Bidon $50,000 per month to serve on the company’s board of directors.

            There is no dispute about if Biden abused the power of his office. He bragged about getting the prosecutor fired, and there is video of his statement for proof. The debate is about the purpose for having him fired. Did he insist that the prosecutor be fired to help the company in Ukraine that was paying his son $50,000 per month? There is also some talk about Hunter being involved in some deals with China, but that is not a part of this discussion.

            Mark Levin admits that there is a huge scandal that involves a top U.S. politician and Ukraine, but it is not Trump as the media and Democrats are claiming. It is Joe Biden.

You have a massive Democrat scandal here. That’s why the media are conducting themselves the way they are. That’s why the Democrats are trying to turn this inside-out. To immunize Biden and to attack Trump, but it won’t work....

My take is that the Biden family is corrupt…. My take is that Joe Biden obstructed justice in the Ukraine. You want to find obstruction? There it was.

And my take is that he blackmailed that government to get that prosecutor removed, and not just to protect his son, but to protect his future run for president of the United States….

            Levin may or may not be correct. It stands to reason that the dealings of Biden with Ukraine would be investigated if the communications of Trump with Ukraine are being examined. Maybe a special counsel should be appointed to study both men. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives are not willing to wait for a special counsel or even for the facts. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that a formal impeachment inquiry would start soon.

            Democrats demanded that a transcriptof Trump’s telephone call be released to the public. Trump announced today that “the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine” would be released tomorrow. This was not enough for the impeachment-hungry Democrats, and they announced that an impeachment investigation would begin. The Democrat Party has moved far left from pressure by far-left progressives. Even though Pelosi has declined to pursue impeachment in prior days, she finally caved to the far left. 

            Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said that he believes Democrats will successfully impeach Trump even though it is unlikely that two-thirds of the Senate will vote to convict him and remove him from office.  

I think the momentum of radicalism on their side is so great, they won’t be able to help themselves…. The Democrats have always had the votes if they wanted to do it, and it’s up [to] them….

I just think the Republican position ought to be if you want to look at pressure being brought on Ukraine; you have to look at Biden as well as Trump…. There is more than enough reason to have a serious deep investigation of what was going on in China and Ukraine as it relates to Biden, father and son.

Biden personally, directly, while in Ukraine pressuring them involving an investigation with his son’s company is vastly worse than what we’ve seen with Trump.

            Gingrich knows a few things about impeachment because he was Speaker of the House when it voted to impeach Bill Clinton. The Senate declined to convict Clinton, and he stayed in office. Clinton was impeached during his second term, so there was no question of running for another term of office. However, CBS News announced in August 2019 that “the majority of Americans oppose removing President Trump through impeachment.” In fact, the favorability rating for Trump continues to climb and now stands at a high level -- 53% -- than that of Barack Obama at the same time in his first term.

            The United States is deeply divided on numerous issues. Impeachment proceedings will just cause a greater divide. The Trump haters just cannot get over the fact that Trump is acting for the good of the nation, and they continue to impede his progress. It just goes to show that people hate Trump more than they love America!
