Articles Of Impeachment Brought For Third Time Against Republican Donald Trump
Polls have now shown a majority of Americans thought the response to the Charlottesville domestic terror attack by Republican Donald Trump was incredibly weak. Despite that reality, Trump has now tripled down on his affinity for the traitorous past of the Confederacy with another early morning Tweet storm in support of the statues representing that ugly history. Now, it appears one Democrat has had enough of the dog whistles and will introduce articles of impeachment against Trump over his continued olive branches to white supremacists.
Democrat Steve Cohen of Tennessee posted a statement on Twitter that he will introduce articles of impeachment today against Trump for his response to the Charlottesville attack. The statement specifically pointed to Trumps responses to the terror attack and flatly stated:
I believe the President should be impeached and removed from office. Instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the President said there were very fine people on both sides. There are no good Nazis. There are no good Klansmen. Cohen goes on to describe the comparisons he saw between Charlottesville and disgusting events of the past, like Kristallnacht in 1938 in Nazi Germany. He then hammers Trump for his lack of morality in this situation and, in Cohens opinion, his clear unwillingness to forcefully denounce violent white supremacists.
President Trump has failed the presidential test of moral leadership. No moral president would ever shy away from outright condemning hate, intolerance and bigotry. No moral president would ever question the values of Americans protesting in opposition of such actions, one of whom was murdered by one of the white nationalists President Trump has shown time and time again that he lacks the ethical and moral rectitude to be President of the United States. Not only has he potentially obstructed justice and potentially violated the Constitutions Foreign Emoluments Clause, but he has also shown that he is incapable or unwilling to protect Americans from enemies, foreign and domestic. Neo-Nazis and the KKK are domestic terrorists. If the President cant recognize the difference between these domestic terrorists and the people who oppose their anti-American attitudes, then he cannot defend us.
Much like the other articles of impeachment that have been brought against Donald Trump in his brief time in office, this will likely go nowhere in the Republican controlled House. But its clear folks are getting tired of the dog whistles and Trumps inability to attack hate in the same way he attacks celebrities and morning talk show hosts. Once again, Trumps mouth has put him in hot water.
A heavy period of smokin’ Hopium.
Telling the truth?
It’s a Monthly thing with the Demonuts
What is the crime here ?
Pure unadulterated crap.
Let me get this straight. These goobers think a president expressing his thoughts is an impeachable offense?
So THE NATION and SALON both admit this week that the Russian Conspiracy Theory is a complete fraud. The DNC hack was done from an insider.
The MSM pivots over to Trump in a news conference pointing out (1) there were violent folks on both side of the VA protest - only the pro Robert E. Lee statue had been granted a permit to even be there; and (2) that some folks on both sides were there to peacefully support or protest the statue. Both of these are factual.
THAT is a reason to impeach a president? Insanity.
They really haven’t gotten past the denial stage of their grieving process.
I wonder how many of our countrymen can see how totally idiotic this is.
How dare Trump condemn ALL hate bigotry and violence rather than just some.
Cohen can not tolerate condemnation of all the groups involved, only some. He tacitly endorses hate bigotry and violence. Typical Democrat.
I agree. He had a golden opportunity to use this heinous act to turn it into a fundraising effort and then go golfing and sailing with Hollywood and tech moguls.
The truth will not be tolerated
....These goobers think a president expressing his thoughts is an impeachable offense...
Yes, because the Russia collusion scam has fallen flat on it’s face. When this fails too, they will move on to the next scam.
BS. Total, absolute, twisted, evil, BS. He is and was correct. He is not allowed to tell the truth. The MSM and their friends in high politics...never mind, I cannot say that about people.
Oh, yeah. He also could've blamed The Crusades.
for not being Hillary Clinton.
The Ministry of Propaganda has to keep people from asking who the real leak at the DNC was and why he ended up dead.
These idiots just think the word “articles” sounds cool and ominous. Simpletons.
