Donald Trump is a vile racist xenophobic warmongering capitalist misogynist. He has displayed this in, not only words, but actions.
Over the years of his presidency, he’s “greatly abused his power” although one can argue they all do. As of late, however, the ghost of failed impeachment proceedings has risen up once again—- but could this time be different?
There seems to be some confusion about what impeachment actually is. The mainstream media, for their own purposes, has done much to define impeachment as “removing someone from office”. An impeachment is a charge of misconduct made against the holder of a public office — a president or any other federal official. An equivalent to an indictment in criminal law, it does not remove the official from office.
In the U.S. Constitution, Article II, section 4, it states:
“The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
