Reader says Trump was never impeached


I get tired of reading “Mr. Trump, the first president to be impeached twice…”

Everyone seems to forget that while the Democrats tried to impeach President Trump the first time, they did not succeed. He was not impeached, and probably will not be impeached as the Democrats make their second attempt to do so. It is unlikely there will be enough Republican votes to impeach President Trump in this second attempt.

It has already been pointed out that the disruption at the Capitol was planned weeks in advance by an extremist group, the Oath Keepers. Three of their leaders are already facing conspiracy charges.

All the Democratic senators would do this country a favor by voting against impeachment and saving the Senate from engaging in another frivolous lawsuit.

Speaker Pelosi needs to get over herself and her vendetta against President Trump.

Keeping up this fiasco just makes her look ineffective.

Editor's note: Carolyn Copeland is a resident of Sun City.

Editors note: The impeachment process is two-pronged: The U.S. House of Representatives votes to impeach the president and if there are enough votes to impeach, the U.S. Senate then votes to either acquit or convict the president.
