A historic Week in Impeachment is not necessarily a good thing


The volume of impeachable conduct reported this week teaches how abnormal is the “new normal” of the Trump Administration; we are desensitized to overwhelming, harmful presidential maladministration that includes oppression, placing foreign interests above ours, violation of the Presidential Oath, and corruption, doing great harm to our country, society, and system of government.


First Charge: Oppression

Second Charge: Placing foreign interests above those of the US, ignoring dangerous national security threats


Third Charge: Breach of the president’s oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and to faithfully execute his office


Fourth Charge: Corruption, security breaches, incompetence, and chaos that endanger national security



This week, NBC reported that the House committee charged with investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 election obtained either no or incomplete information about eighty-one percent of the known contacts between Trump officials and Russians, or groups and individuals with strong Russia ties like Wikileaks.

The House majority ignores numerous impeachable acts, any one of which would prompt recognition in headlines for harm to our country and cries for impeachment in presidencies past.
