Impeach him already

Rhonda Bjertness, Minot

I watched former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testify before Congress (last month).

During his testimony, he confirmed the results of his investigation: 37 indictments, at least 7 convictions and guilty pleas, and more than 10 episodes of obstruction of justice by Donald Trump himself.

Given all of the evidence, I don’t understand at this point why Congress still hasn’t moved forward with an impeachment inquiry.

No one should be above the law in our country. Period. I don’t care who you are – if you’re the CEO of a company or the president of the United States of America. Donald Trump must be held accountable, just like any other American would be.

If it had been anyone else who obstructed justice as blatantly as Trump did, they’d be behind bars.

Robert Mueller did his job – and it’s far past time for lawmakers in Congress to step up and do theirs.

Some people say that we shouldn’t pursue impeachment because there are so many other issues to deal with. What about health care? Infrastructure? Climate change? Immigration?

And to these people, I say: Congress could address these issues and pursue an impeachment inquiry at the same time? That’s what we pay them to do.

It’s time for our representative and all of Congress to take action to hold Trump accountable and open a formal impeachment inquiry now.
