Only a handful of Republicans have chosen to do the right thing and support the impeachment of Donald Trump. Few have the courage to take their oath of office seriously, and these do not include Moscow Mitch, Chuck Grassley, Lindsey Graham, John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, and nearly every other Republican in name only.
Until yesterday former Governor of Ohio and 2016 presidential candidate, John Kasich, did not believe that there was enough evidence to impeach Trump. With recent revelation of his violations of the Constitution, Kasich said the following.
Kasich, who’s a CNN senior political commentator, told CNN’s Ana Cabrera Friday the “final straw” for him was White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s Thursday admission that military aid was withheld from Ukraine in order to pressure that country for investigations into Democrats.
“But if you are asking me if I was sitting in the House of Representatives today and you were to ask me how do I feel, do I think impeachment should move forward and should go for a full examination and a trial in the United States Senate, my vote would be yes.” Kasich said on CNN’s “Newsroom.”
Any man or woman who loves their country and looks closely and objectively at the evidence, must come to the same conclusion. Trump’s Constitutional violations are far more flagrant and arrogant than those of any other president who faced impeachment.
America deserves better; I deserve better. The mainstream media continues to give Trump a free pass. If they were honest, and reported the truth, nearly 100 percent of all Americans would support removing Trump from the White House.
