Denver Post: Impeach Trump and Remove Him From Office

  • 19 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

[mantra-pullquote align=”right” textalign=”left” width=”60%”]“We urge all seven members of Colorado’s congressional delegation to support the two articles of impeachment that have been approved by the House Judiciary Committee.”

— Denver Post Editorial (12/17/19)[/mantra-pullquote]

We’ve been tracking the increasing number of editorials from newspapers around the country endorsing the impeachment (and often the removal from office) of President Trump.

Late Tuesday, The Denver Post added its voice to the mix:

It is with a solemn sense of responsibility to the U.S. Constitution and a deep love of this country that we call for Congress to exercise its power of impeachment…

…we have determined — based on hours of sworn testimony, text messages, emails and the president’s own words — that Trump has so abused the power of his office that for him to remain in the White House is a threat to our democracy.

All Americans, regardless of their political affiliation, should be deeply troubled by Trump’s actions. Standing up now as a nation and declaring that this U.S. president and future presidents cannot behave with such blatant disregard for honesty and integrity is essential. We cannot tolerate this behavior. [Pols emphasis]

The Post later quotes Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Jefferson County), who walked the Editorial Board through his own thought process on impeachment:

Trump’s actions, if they go unpunished, will pave the way for foreign prosecution powers to become proxy tools of aggrieved presidents seeking to secure a political victory at any cost. “This is precisely the thing that the founders feared — foreign interference in our elections. (George) Washington was strong about it in his farewell address,” Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Arvada, told The Post editorial board last week as we considered an editorial on impeachment. “I hesitated and I’ve been reluctant … but this goes to the heart of freedom, and independence, and fair elections.” [Pols emphasis]

The House of Representatives — by a largely party-line vote — is expected to approve the impeachment of President Trump in a formal vote later today.

  1. Nine.

     The United States Congress consists of two chambers: the House of Representatives and the Senate. So there are nine members of the Colorado "Congressional delegation."

     

  2. Hey KWTree. Just want you to know I’m ready to make good on our bet as soon as the elderly  white woman dressed in black can figure out where the Senate meets to send over the articles.

    wink

     

    1. Latest talk today, Pear, is that she may not send the articles over, to allow for Trump to stew in his juices, knowing the Senate can't then acquit him of his wrong-doing.

        1. But Trump, disgraced before history, is on display at his venomous worst.  This foul creature can only react to Nancy's deft thrusts and is incapable of laying out a positive vision of his own.

          1. Stumbling, bumbling, mumbling Nancy afraid to answer questions on impeachment and the one she did answer showed her age in trying to answer, a Joe Biden moment.

            Pelosi is just as much a disgrace as you think Trump is. The two cancel out. Let’s move on and Make America Great, now and forever.

  3. Does anyone here happen to know how long Speaker Pelosi can wait to send the articles of impeachment over to the Senate ?  Is it an indefinite amount of time ? Could she run out the clock like McTurkey did with Merrick Garland ?

    What if she waited until after the 2020 election, and Trump is still there but the Dems take over the Senate ?  Still not enough for the 67 votes, I know, but an interesting scenario nonetheless… 

     

    1. Constitution has no time limit.
      However… I would be skeptical if the next Congress was elected and didn't vote again.

      I am also curious what “preside” means. Does Chief Roberts get to make any rules? Can he hold members in contempt? What can he do?
