“When Impeachment Isn’t Enough.”
The impeachment hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives have begun, and with it, a step into history. Will Donald Trump be impeached by the House? I think the answer will be “yes.”
By so doing, Trump will join two of his predecessors former presidents William Clinton and Andrew Johnson, for both men were impeached, yet none were removed from office.
Unless I miss my guess, Trump will likely suffer the same fate, and therein lies the rub. For failing a conviction in the U.S. Senate, he too will be acquitted of all impeachment charges.
He will emerge from this mess like King Kong: stronger than ever. For Congress to really succeed, it must truly change the temperature. That, it is not yet done.
From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
