IF ANY OTHER president had committed half the impeachable acts as the man currently
occupying the Oval Office, I believe they’d have been in front of Congress facing a presidential pink slip. But as much as I loathe saying it, I think former FBI Director James Comey got it right when he said impeaching this man now would let us, as Americans, “off the hook.
He was right when he said, “I think we owe it to each other to get off the couch and think about what unites us.
Impeaching the president, Comey said,” would be a quick fix to a larger problem. You cannot have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure,” Comey said. “That is the core of this country. That’s our foundation. And so impeachment, in a way, would short circuit that.”
And it takes a brave man, knowing he was going to get a massive tweet tantrum filled with accusations, to tell the truth: Donald Trump is not morally fit to be President of the United States.
Trump has proven himself to be a liar about big and small things, many of which can actually be proven easily by just rewinding our Tivos.
I don’t know what the future holds, because I’m certain special council investigators have only hit the tip of the Trump iceberg.
What I do know is that we need to take Comey’s advice: Find the core values that unite us in a time where we are all so divided. And get up off our couches and vote.
We owe it to ourselves. And we owe it to each other.
