We are in the midst of another @GOP lie. Every call to stop the impeachment process is disingenuous a best, more likely treasonous. Consider this: our nation’s Capitol was attacked at the behest and call of the President of the United States. How is it wrong to hold him accountable? Republicans in Congress keep saying that it will be “divisive”. I posit that the opposite is true, that the truly divisive path is to avoid accountability, to not prosecute the President under all applicable laws, including impeachment. It is divisive to allow members of the Congress and the Senate who supported this insurrection to remain in the body. The same is true of the rioters who stormed the Capitol. If we do not hold all of the participants accountable then we are condoning their actions. Silence is not just complicity, it is support. Without accountability the message is that what was done was justifiable. And that will lead to further division, to events like this happening again and again. Dr. King wrote from the Birmingham County Jail that we, as citizen’s of the United States, have a moral obligation to defy unjust laws. He also said that we need to be held accountable under those laws, no matter how unjust they are. If the President believes his actions were justifiable then let him stand before an impeachment trial in the Senate, before the court of public opinion, and state his case.
