The sad thing about the talk that some are engaging in when it comes to the potential impeachment of Donald Trump is that it is borne out of things that have nothing to do with his character as a person or a leader.
People are doing it because they are still mad so many years later that their person didn’t win. Now they are trying to shoot for the moon and go with any possible reason why they think he should be removed from office.
In a real life context, it would be like this. Imagine if you will, that you were responsible for five particular duties where you work and another person was responsible for another set of five. Now, imagine how silly it would be for you to be fired because that second person did not do the things that they were supposed to do while you were in the middle of day three of a vacation. That’s how silly it really is.
People are saying that he has done something but they can’t point to any one single thing that President Trump has done wrong.
Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs said he was “floored” by Republican colleague Rep. Justin Amash’s allegation that President Donald Trump engaged in impeachable offenses.
In a series of tweets on Saturday, Amash, who represents Michigan’s 3rd congressional district, became the first GOP member of Congress to call for Trump’s removal from office.
He also alleged that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in his initial four-page summary of it.
Biggs — a member of the House Judiciary Committee where impeachment proceedings would begin — told Fox News on Monday, “Justin’s a friend, but Justin’s wrong on this, clearly, and the way he did this is all wrong, as well.”
“The reality is there was no collusion, there was no conspiracy,” Biggs said. “That’s check one. Number 2, the obstruction charge, to have the obstruction, you really need the predicate crime, or the underlying crime. Well, there was no underlying crime, so he wasn’t obstructing.”
“I was kind of floored by Justin’s conclusions. I disagree with him wholeheartedly on this,” the congressman added.
Biggs also took exception with Amash’s allegation that few members of Congress have actually read the 428-page Mueller report.
“I’m amazed at that, because everybody I know who is even talking about this publicly, and in private to me about his, we have all read the report. We’ve compared notes,” Biggs said.
The lawmaker recounted his own experience of being at the U.S. border with Mexico in Yuma, Arizona, with six of his GOP colleagues when the report came out. They wasted no time printing it out and reading it “immediately.”
“I’m just flabbergasted that he would assert that nobody’s read this or few people have read this,” Biggs said.
