To Impeach or Not to Impeach

I am sure that on July 25, 2019, when President Trump placed a congratulatory call to the newly elected President of Ukraine, he would never had imagined that it would trigger his impeachment hearings. Truth be told, the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi used the provoked whistleblower report regarding the phone call as a beard to conceal Democrat’s disdain and agenda to impeach President Trump from the onset of his presidency. Since August 2019, when the whistleblower complaint was filed, we the people have been subjected to one congressional meeting after another, privately deposed witnesses in a bunker at the Capitol building, allegation after allegation of wrongdoing, eons of public hearings, and a 24-hour news cycle that foams at the mouth to report the demise of our president. The Democratic Representatives in the House scrambled to find something, anything to make Donald J. Trump the fourth president in U. S. history to be impeached. On December 18, 2019, the Speaker of the House passed out personalized pens and did her best to hold back her excitement as she signed the two articles of impeachment they came up with. However, her elation would quickly deflate like a balloon. Hats off to the founders when they established a democratic government that operates under checks and balances where one branch of government must answer to the other. According to the Constitution, the House of Representatives does not have the final say in regard to President Trump’s fate, the Senate does. With that, the Senate has spoken and acquitted President Trump with a majority vote and Nancy Pelosi has left the American taxpayers with a hefty impeachment bill. Ultimately, we the people have the final say every time we cast our vote. Fortunately for us, it is not limited to re-electing President Trump in November, but it allows us to vote for representatives and senators who will “Keep America Great”!
