IMPEACHMENT: Was the U.S. House of Representatives Right to Impeach President Donald Trump (R) Twice?
By soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 presidential election, President Trump abused his power and violated public trust. After losing the election, his irresponsible actions and inflammatory rhetoric incited an insurrection against the U.S. government. Both impeachments were necessary to protect U.S. democracy.
Democrats built their first impeachment case on hearsay and conjecture in an undemocratic bid to remove the president from office ahead of the 2020 election. The second impeachment was hasty, ill-considered, and only further divided the country at a politically sensitive time. Both impeachments weakened U.S. democracy.
