As it has become clear that President Trump abused his office, impeachment is the only way forward, believes Will Wilkinson of The New York Times. Trump pressured the leader of Ukraine to help him get dirt on Joe Biden, his potential rival for president. Additionally, he attempted to withhold military aid that Congress had approved to help Ukraine defend itself against Russia. Trump has already tried to twist the legitimacy of the 2020 US election. It would be an affront to America’s values to let him participate in it. Democrats should stick together in pushing for impeachment, which is the just thing to do.
The Democratic Party’s effort to impeach President Trump is clearly politically motivated, holds Jed Babbin of The American Spectator. The allegations made by a White House whistleblower were based on matters they hadn’t even experienced first-hand and do not prove wrongdoing. Trump is justified in having looked into the potential corruption of the Biden family with a business in Ukraine. Pursuing a crime that happened overseas is not a bad thing. Still, Democrats have jumped at the opportunity to try and oust Trump, as they have attempted before. Justice has little to do with this impeachment attempt.
