this is where I stand

#FuckTrump #TraitorTrump #TrumpRussia #PutinsBitch

Never have we needed the American people to stand up for the rule of law more than at this time in our history. We must lift up the Constitution.

We must not be afraid to speak the truth when we see it. We can not afford to turn a blind eye to the dismantling of the values in which we have always believed.

When a sitting president takes the side of the enemy of the United States over his own intelligence services, that is treasonous. When that president refuses to enforce sanctions that Congress overwhelmingly passed against that enemy, that is treasonous.

When a president refuses to defend our country, he is not only derelict in his duty, he is a traitor that should be immediately removed from the office he daily dishonors.

When I was nineteen I took an oath to defend my country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. That oath didn’t have a time limit. Trump needs to be impeached.

This is where I stand. What about you?

 

The Case For Impeachment

Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, a co-author of the Federalist Papers — and an immigrant himself — argued that “high crimes and misdemeanors” could be defined as “abuse or violation of some public trust.” This president has clearly already exceeded these standards. Congress has impeached past presidents for far less.

                                                                                                                                            Tom Steyer, October 18, 2017

There comes a time when it is painfully obvious that the public trust has not only been violated, but abused, so badly that action has to be taken. Trump has clearly, and I would add, even intentionally exceeded any standards required for removal from office. This president was unfit before Russia put him into office, and he has done nothing to redeem himself in the year since.
Instead, he has continued to lie, to mock the Constitution and our rule of law. He has continued to flaunt his power and make a mockery of true American values. His unmitigated greed and hubris knows no limits.
There is a solid case for impeachment of this president. Now, we all need to encourage ALL our representatives to execute their responsibilities and start the proceedings. (And those refusing to do so should pay the maximum penalty at the polls.)
There comes a time when talking is not enough. The time has come for action. #BLOTUS needs to be impeached. He is a traitor, and needs to be treated as such. The time has come to demonstrate our values are not his values.
