Impeachment: What You Should Know
I’m not going to spend a lot of time with my opinion about this. I will let the documents speak for themselves. There is one major point that I will make, and it is one that every American citizen should agree with.
American elections are for Americans.
It is illegal for any foreign country to interfere in American elections. It is illegal for any foreign country to offer anything of value (including money, research, or anything else you can think of) to help a candidate. It is illegal for any candidate, campaign, or individual to solicit aid from any foreign government to help with an election or campaign, whether they actually receive anything or not. The solicitation is the illegal act.
It is illegal to hide any evidence of any of the things mentioned above. It’s called Obstruction of Justice.
It is illegal to refuse to answer questions posed by a Congressional Committee Investigation without a clear declaration of Executive privilege, which by the way does not include every single thing. It cannot be used to cover up an illegal activity. That’s called Obstruction of Justice, and can also put the one refusing in Contempt of Congress.
The Republican President has admitted to the illegal act of soliciting aid in
the 2020 election from the President of Ukraine. Ukraine, by the way is in a “hot war” right now with Russia for invading their country. As you are aware the Republican is a great admirer of the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin.
Below is the link to the White House summary of the President’s solicitation. . Keep in mind that a quid pro quo is not necessary for it to be illegal. The solicitation is illegal. You can read it all here.
Links to all documents
The The Director of National Intelligence (a Trump nominee) received a report from the Inspector General (also a Trump nominee). The IG, Inspector General, classified a report he received from a whistleblower as “urgent and credible.”
Here is his letter to the DNI.
Here is the whistle blower’s report.
As of this writing, I know of no Republican Elected
Official from North Carolina who has come out against the Republican President soliciting foreign aid to help him win the 2020 election. That includes Richard Burr or Patrick McHenry, or Jason Saine. Thom Tillis even went so far as to claim that there was nothing to see. The whistle blower report contained nothing that would damage the Republican President.
He must not have read the whistle blower complaint or the White House Summary because Tillis contradicted what both of them said. Or, maybe he just lied.
Maybe we should remind them that American Elections are for Americans, not foreign countries. It’s time to become a patriot.
