Letters: A case for impeachment

A case for impeachment

Editor:

I think many of us on both sides of the issues are concerned about our president being capable of holding this office and whether or not he is of sound mind.

As president he has first of all sworn to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, to protect, preserve and defend the constitution of the United States. He has failed to keep that promise!

Historically we have grown disillusioned with the process of impeachment and have basically misunderstood it. Impeachment was put into the constitution to protect us from the likes of Mr. Trump. Impeachment is a process, not an outcome, an obligation to follow the rule of law for investigating the president by weighing any evidence, formulating charges and making a decision after the House of Representatives has sent it to the Senate to proceed with the trial process.

The U.S. Constitution has an impeachment clause written into it. This document deserves our attention and scrutiny as to why it was written for our protection against despots and dictators who are bent on abusing their power and bending the rule of law to satisfy their needs.

President Trump has failed to divest himself from extensive financial interests, has continued attacks of the special council, attacked the free press, fired the FBI Director and Attorney General just because they were disloyal to him. These are troubling times and we need congressional leaders to follow the constitution.
