Inconvenient is Not a Reason Not to Start Impeachment Proceedings

Reading Time: 5 minutes I am not delusional. I know the Republicans control the Senate. It’s highly unlikely Trump will be removed from office. I also know that starting impeachment proceedings will disrupt the legislative process. However, there is nothing more important on our agenda than holding our elected officials, especially if that official is the President, accountable, making it clear that there are lines you cannot cross and continue to serve unchecked.

History must reflect that we did something in the face of the most corrupt, disruptive, and criminal administration in the history of our nation. It’s up to Congress to put that in the record books. Trying to impeach might have to be enough, and even if it fails, we cannot look ourselves in the mirror and not try.
