The Case for Impeachment - Compelling

Career diplomats, foreign affairs specialists, veterans and other witnesses have testified in the public impeachment hearing before the Intelligence Committee of the United States (US) House of Representatives into misgivings of President Donald Trump.

When the impeachment hearing concluded its public component this week, I believe a very compelling case for impeachment had been made against Trump for actions contrary to the Constitution and amok of the high office of President of the United States.

To me, and I will not go through a point by point review of the evidence presented by the credible witnesses, it was made clear that Trump used the Office of President to withhold crucial Congressional approved foreign aid to an ally in order to exact a personal political action from the said foreign government. That action was taken to curry a political favour and to make it dependent upon the delivery of aid is more than sufficient to merit Trump's impeachment.

There are no excuses nor explanations that could stand in for such actions. Attempts by some Republicans to accept the action as being trivial should be condemned and be deemed as actions to normalize unconstitutional behavior. The reverence of the High Office of President of the US must never be cheapened to appease any holder of the office. 

Moreover, it is preposterous that any sitting president's personal attorney could be allowed to conduct foreign policy under the current tenets of American democracy. The Executive of the Republic is not the same as the executive of a for-profit corporation.

If Trump is not held liable for his misgivings as president, then the US can no longer have a voice against any conceived misdeeds in any other country, thus bringing to an end American global influence.
