Impeachment (Again)

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 13, 2021

         SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI WANTS TO IMPEACH PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH JUST A WEEK TO GO IN HIS PRESIDENCY. SHE ACCUSES THE PRESIDENT OF INCITING INSURRECTION AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT THAT LEAD TO LAST WEEK’S CAPITOL RIOT.

         THIS IS VINDICTIVENESS. IT WILL FURTHER DIVIDE THE COUNTRY, DEEPEN CONSPITACY THEORIES, POSSIBLY LEAD TO MORE VIOLENCE AND HINDER THE CONFIRMATION OF BIDEN APPOINTEES TO CRITICAL OFFICES.

         ON SEPTEMBER 8, 1974, PRESIDENT GERALD FORD PARDONED RICHARD NIXON FOR HIS OFFENSES IN THE WATERGATE AFFAIR. FORD SAID IT WOULD TAKE A YEAR BEFORE A SENATE TRIAL COULD BE CONDUCTED AND “IN THE MEANTIME THE TRANQUILTY TO WHICH THIS NATION HAS BEEN RESTORED BY THE EVENTS OF RECENT WEEKS” – MEANING NIXON’S RESIGNATION – “COULD BE IRREPARABLY LOST BY THE PROSPECTS OF BRINGING TO TRIAL A FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THE PROSPECTS OF SUCH TRIAL WILL CAUSE PROLONGED AND DIVISIVE DEBATE OVER THE PROPRIETY OF EXPOSING TO FURTHER PUNISHMENT AND DEGREDATON A MAN WHO HAS ALREADY PAID THE UNPRECEDENTED PENALTY OF RELINQUISHING THE HIGHEST OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES.”

TRUMP’S CASE IS DIFFERENT, BUT THE PRINCIPLE IS THE SAME. LET HIM GO AND STOP THE REVENGE. I’M CAL THOMAS.
