Democrats harassed Donald Trump during his presidency with baseless threats of impeachment.
Now, they – along with some Republicans – want to impeach him after he has left office.
Sen. Mitt Romney, R-UT, claimed that “Trump’s effort to convince Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to overturn the state’s election result, as well as his call for a march on the U.S. Capitol at a Jan. 6 rally” were enough grounds for him to support the second articles of impeachment.
However, not every Republican has completely lost their mind by supporting this impeachment process.
Sen. Mike Rounds, R-S.D., stated that the Constitution “does not indicate that you can impeach someone who is not in office,” thus making these impeachment articles a “moot point.”
Certainly, many of Trump’s actions in office were questionable, but to cite these actions as ground for impeachment – especially after he no longer serves as president – are beyond ridiculous and a complete waste of time.
And anyone who supports this – especially Republicans – is just trying to virtue signal and keep themselves relevant in the political sphere.
Instead of focusing on continuing to tear down Trump’s reputation, politicians need to focus their energies on matters of this administration, as the soul of America likely hangs in the balance over the next four years.
Biden has already made it known that he hates the military, religious freedom and countless other hallmarks of the American life that make our country special. Therefore, our leaders must focus their energies on protecting our way of life before it is taken from us.
That should be the goal, not trying to harm Trump anymore.
