6. It could not be more evident that this president is interfering with the Constitutional powers of the Senate as he obstructs the House Judiciary Committee's attempts to bring key witnesses in for questioning. He blocks its subpoenas to witnesses and that doesn't allow this committee to carry out its Constitutional responsibilities. That is clearly obstruction of justice but Republicans say and do nothing.

The last reason for this peoples' impeachment can be found in this part of these Republicans' oaths of office which states " and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

That term, "so help me God" is generally defined as saying that "I so pledge and vow in God's name." That's what they vow as they enter Congress. And then what happens next in the case of most of them? They refuse to faithfully discharge the duties of the office.

Based on their record, what they say and what most of them refuse to do, the vow they made has become meaningless, and that is why the people of this country must impeach them, as well as their president.
