Time to Impeach Trump

Resolution to impeach President Nixon read as follows: Resolved, That Richard M. Nixon, President of the United States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the articles of impeachment be exhibited to the Senate.

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representative of the United States of America in the name of itself and of all of the people of the United States of America against Richard M. Nixon, President of the United States of America, in maintenance of and support of its impeachment of him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Note. Only one of the three articles of impeachment is listed here. There are so many accusations in Article 1 that are certainly applicable in what has and is taking place in the Trump Administration.

ARTICLE 1
In his conduct of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his consitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice, in that:
On June 17, 1972, and prior thereto, agents of the Committee for the Re-election of the President committed unlawful entry of the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, District of Columbia, for the purpose of securing political intelligence. Subsequent thereto, Richard M. Nixon, using the powers of his high office, engaged personally and through his close subordinates and agents, in a course of conduct or plan designed to delay, impede, and obstruct the investigation of such illegal entry; to cover up, conceal and protect those responsible; and to conceal the existence and scope of other unlawful covert activities.
The means used to implement this course of conduct or plan included one or more of the following:
making false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States;

withholding relevant and material evidence or information from lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States;

approving, condoning, acquiescing in, and counselling witnesses with respect to the giving of false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States and false or misleading testimony in duly instituted judicial and congressional proceedings;

interfering or endeavouring to interfere with the conduct of investigations by the Department of Justice of the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the office of Watergate Special Prosecution Force, and Congressional Committees;

approving, condoning, and acquiescing in, the surreptitious payment of substantial sums of money for the purpose of obtaining the silence or influencing the testimony of witnesses, potential witnesses or individuals who participated in such unlawful entry and other illegal activities;

endeavouring to misuse the Central Intelligence Agency, an agency of the United States;

disseminating information received from officers of the Department of Justice of the United States to subjects of investigations conducted by lawfully authorized investigative officers and employees of the United States, for the purpose of aiding and assisting such subjects in their attempts to avoid criminal liability;

making or causing to be made false or misleading public statements for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States into believing that a thorough and complete investigation had been conducted with respect to allegations of misconduct on the part of personnel of the executive branch of the United States and personnel of the Committee for the Re-election of the President, and that there was no involvement of such personnel in such misconduct: or

endeavouring to cause prospective defendants, and individuals duly tried and convicted, to expect favoured treatment and consideration in return for their silence or false testimony, or rewarding individuals for their silence or false testimony.
In all of this, Richard M. Nixon has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.
Wherefore Richard M. Nixon, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

    Current events points to the need for immediate action-action absolutely necessary to deal with our out of control President. His mental state of mind leaves little to the imagination. He becomes more mentally unstable and unhinged each passing day.Those who provide cover for him are doing him and America a disfavor. All Americas deserve better. The world deserves better. His cover, provided for the most part, by Fox, with Hannity at the controls, gives Trump the impression that he is untouchable and invincible. Fox could do America a big favor by removing this shield that Trumps hides behind. Let us not forget Limbaugh, Levin, Hewitt, Cain, Ingrahm, Cunningham, Sanders, and other Talk show blowhards, who contributes to his cover. The day is fast approaching when their cover will not be enough to protect him from the long arm of the law. Republican lawmakers are not blameless for a lot of Trump’s seemingly lack of respect for US laws including the Constitution. They have tools at their disposal to check him when his behavior warrants said actions. It is said that” If there is no justice in you, someone will do justice unto you.”
