'Impeachment inquiry needed'

Print Article

"Trust, but verify" is a Russian proverb used, ironically, by President Reagan after signing the INF Treaty with Mikhail Gorbachev. These were wise words back then, just as they are today.

Candidate Trump said he would release his tax statements after he was elected. He has not. Candidate Trump said he would put his businesses in a blind trust. He has not. Candidate Trump said Mexico would pay for "The Wall." They've not. Trump said he would release the full Mueller Report, but only a redacted version was released. The pattern is clear and has been demonstrated by President Trump on several occasions.

The process of an impeachment investigation beings in the House of Representatives and concludes with a vote in the Senate on whether to convict or not. The current Senate has a majority of Republicans. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refuses to allow a vote on any of the bills for protections of our elections. McConnell would not allow an impeachment conviction to get to the Senate floor.

Our nation's forefathers designed our democracy based on open and fair elections. This means without interference from foreign countries. It's been proven Russia has interfered with our elections, while Iran, North Korea, and China have made similar attempts.

American citizens deserve to know if any of our elected officials have been involved with election manipulation with assistance from foreign entities. President Trump will continue to block House committees' investigations of election tampering. We deserve to know before the 2020 election what has occurred and continues. This will only be accomplished with an official impeachment investigation. Tell your representatives we deserve to know that in January 2021 our great nation will be inaugurating our duly democratically elected President of the United States.

Trump calls the Mueller Report "Fake News," is it? We deserve to know.
