The United States is supposed to be a nation of laws. A nation of morality where the most exceptional people live and try to make the world a better place. In this country, law and order reign, because without law and order there will be chaos. The law, which applies to all, is there to guide us to follow a path of justice, a path of righteousness. And it’s there too in this constitutional democracy, to make sure that no one is above it, because when a person becomes above the law, that leads to tyranny.
United States President Donald Trump has been under investigation for years, and rightfully so, regardless of what his pundits and administration may say. There are still many questions that need to be answered in this investigation led by Robert Mueller, and still many coverups that need to be revealed so the American people have answers. One thing is for certain, Mueller said at Wednesday’s press conference that “if we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” This tells me that the president has committed some sort of crime. It is wrong to allow a criminal to be seated in the highest position in the United States.
I am calling on Speaker Pelosi, the House, and the Senate to do the right thing and enforce the law. Impeachment hearings need to begin. I can understand why Mueller may decide to keep specifics from the American people because of national security, but it’s pretty clear that Trump is not an innocent man.
If a former President like Bill Clinton can be impeached for simply lying under oath, shouldn’t a President like Donald Trump be impeached for criminal activity? We need to set an example to the world, and for our children, to show crime doesn’t pay – and that no one is above the law.
