I could not believe my eyes. Elected officials are finally beginning to seriously contemplate impeachment of the president for abuse of power and violating the Constitution. Concern over “deposed judges” is one of many issues that is causing leaders of both political parties to consider the issue of impeachment. This must-read article suggests that “debate on possible impeachment may gain currency in the days to come.” It evens quotes some high profile Democratic lawmakers, who have been reluctant to press for the impeachment of George W. Bush in the past. Senator John Kerry, pointing to a clause for impeachment in the Constitution, said this was a “great opportunity to work together to strengthen democracy.” Not to be outdone, Senator Joseph Biden also got into the act.
“This is an opportunity for us to move from a policy that has been focused on a personality to one based on an entire people,” Biden said.
A powerful editorial also pushed for impeachment.
But if he is reluctant to call it a day voluntarily, the choice will be between banding together and getting rid of him or letting him stay as a lame duck president.
Could it be that the rule of law may finally be defended by members of the Democratic Party and the media?
