At the end of the day, you and I are not historians; we might have a wealth of experience, of our own knowledge, some of us even majored in History. But there’s a handful of gs who basically know the depth of American History inside and out. And so to perhaps dispute the perspective that Dictator Trump’s impeachment is politically motivated (and to hopefully convince moderates to vote accordingly), here is some insight from a summary top historian’s trying to preserve the truth and dignity of our nation put together.
“…his attempts to justify that obstruction on the grounds that the executive enjoys absolute immunity, a fictitious doctrine that, if tolerated, would turn the president into an elected monarch above the law.”
“It is our considered judgment that if President Trump’s misconduct does not rise to the level of impeachment, then virtually nothing does.”
“We therefore strongly urge the House of Representatives to impeach the President.”
It’s surreal how well Alexander Hamilton warned of a popular idiot like Donald attempting to do EXACTLY what he’s done. Creating such a fucking daily shit storm that by the middle of it, we are so blind we let the shit slinger who started it guide us home. Inevitably, we will lose everything we build by letting this asshole get away with his actions.
The letter (available at https://medium.com/) is signed by 752 of the United States’ top historians. It’s a quick read, and worthy if you have any interest in upholding your duty to protect democracy as a free person.
