A peaceful and patriotic crowd of local citizens voiced their support for America’s only constitutional remedy for a lawless president: impeachment. As witnessed in plain sight, President Donald J. Trump leveraged American taxpayer dollars to coerce and intimidate the new leader of Ukraine, a foreign ally desperate for US military aid, in an effort to gain personal advantage in the 2020 United States Presidential election.
Trump’s record of lawlessness predates his political and entertainment careers. The stunning lack of accountability of the Trump White House has driven the Democratic led U.S. House of Representatives to pursue Articles of Impeachment to force a Senate trial of the President’s High Crimes and Misdemeanors. The Trump presidency has created great strains in America, as a clear division of facts and fiction drive a wedge in to the spirit of our nation’s very unity. President Trump, most elected Republican leadership, and his supporters have demonstrated a unique sense of blind loyalty to the President, even as the President and his enablers admit to criminal acts.
Obstructing the Congressional oversight process to add further insult to injury, the White House has demanded that federal employees shall not testify to the U.S. Congress to present facts that might presumably exonerate Trump, if he had nothing to hide. Instead, Trump and his supporters have put forth an evolving series of implausible defenses for media consumption and confusion, yet no factual evidence has been presented to the U.S Congress investigating the act of enticing and bribing a foreign power to influence a U.S. election.
These were among the worst fears of Presidential misconduct, as outlined by the founding fathers in Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution: 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
Approximately 300 Charlotte County locals gathered today outside the Punta Gorda Historical Courthouse to support the Impeachment of President Trump. In similar gatherings around the country, hundreds of thousands rallied in similar fashion to represent the majority of Americans who support the impeachment.
