Democrats trying to impeach Donald Trump got some good news this week when a GOP judge called for his presidency to be brought to an end less than a month after it began.
Lawnewz reported that former Ohio Judge Mark Painter, a Republican, wrote an editorial for Cincinnati.com this week in which he blasted Trump’s presidency. He brought up things like Trump’s attack on Nordstrom for dropping his daughter’s clothing line, the Pentagon looking into renting space at Trump Tower, issues of conflicts of interests with his businesses, “illegal” orders, and insulting a “so-called judge” who halted his travel ban.
“In any time except our post-factual era, no office holder, much less the president, could get away with any one of the dozens of dazzlingly illegal things Trump has already done,” wrote Painter who has served as a judge for 30 years. “They would forfeit office immediately.”
The judge referred to Trump as “the leader of the band of Mad Hatters occupying the White House” and called his presidency “dangerous.”
“Trump must be impeached and removed with all haste,” Painter wrote, going on to call on Ohio Congressman Steve Chabot to begin the process. Chabot was one of the first politicians to initiate Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
“If you need help drafting those articles of impeachment, Steve, I am available,” Painter offered.
He claimed Trump knows nothing about “[b]asic American values,” the Constitution, or separation of powers. However, what Painter did not disclose was a single piece of evidence as to WHY Trump should be impeached. This serves as a reminder that Trump has done NOTHING illegal, and that he is nowhere near actually being impeached.
Painter and his friends can whine as much as they want, but Trump is here to stay!
