Trump is a danger to our democracy. Given the overwhelming evidence the special counsel Robert Mueller presented in his report and testimony, and the willingness of this administration to let foreign powers interfere in our democracy, it’s past time Congress opened a formal impeachment inquiry.
No more excuses. No more delays.
The Mueller investigation found extensive criminal activity committed by Trump and his team. It resulted in 37 indictments and at least seven convictions or guilty pleas, uncovered over 10 instances of obstruction of justice by Trump himself, and revealed over 100 secret meetings and communications between his campaign and Russia and their cronies.
If any other American had obstructed justice as flagrantly as Trump has, they’d be going to jail.
Our representative needs to step up now, because doing nothing will only embolden Trump to trample over our democratic norms and to keep breaking the law. Doing nothing sets a dangerous precedent for future presidents.
For all of these reasons, it’s time for our representative to voice their support for a formal impeachment inquiry.
