Trump and his allies continue to rebuff all efforts by Democrats in the House to exercise their oversight powers. Although executive power has encroached on Congressional authority for many years, Trump is going further than past presidents in this regard. His strategy is to stonewall and run out the clock until the 2020 election.
Congressional Republicans don’t hesitate to use slogans, mischaracterization and outright lies to protect Trump. Failure to hold Trump accountable will only embolden him.
Short of impeachment, Congress has limited options to address a non-compliant executive branch, all of which are less than ideal and some of which may take a long time to reach conclusion.
Congressional Democrats can get more information if the House begins an impeachment inquiry against Trump.
Trump’s public actions and the Mueller report provide ample evidence of Trump’s abuse of power and criminal activity. Impeachment proceedings will give all Americans a chance to hear the truth about Trump, even if the Senate will not vote to remove him from office. There is no reason Democrats can’t legislate and pursue impeachment at the same time.
Ted Deutch, Lois Frankel and Alcee Hastings have not yet called for Trump’s impeachment. The rule of law should rise above any political calculations.
Let’s urge our Democratic members of Congress to hold Trump accountable to the fullest extent of their powers and begin an impeachment inquiry right now.
