The Democrats have been playing defense. The President throws out so many offenses that it's impossible to respond effectively to all of them. Public attention can only handle one or two issues at a time. His offenses are many since January 2020 , when the Republican Senate acquitted Trump of the charges brought by the Democratic House, of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Many of the new offenses are impeachable, such as:
· Committing treason as commander-in-chief of the US armed forces, by ignoring and then dismissing intelligence that Russia was paying bounties to Afghanis to kill American soldiers.
· Willful endangerment of the American people, for political ends, with his fatally negligent response to the covid-19 pandemic.
· Abuse of law-enforcement powers, with reckless deployment of federal forces into U.S. cities for political purposes
· Abuse of appointment power, by firing courageous whistleblower Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and blocking his promotion.
· Abuse of power for personal enrichment, by pushing the U.S. ambassador to Britain to get the British government to steer the lucrative British Open golf tournament to a Trump-owned resort in Scotland.
· Abuse of the reprieve and pardon power, by pardoning Roger Stone, who was convicted of lying to Congress and the FBI.
· Willful and blatant interference with a federal election: Trump, 8/13/2020, on why he won't fund US Postal Service. "Now they need that money in order to make the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots ... But if they don't get those two items that means you can't have universal mail-in voting."
Any one of these items constitutes grounds for a second impeachment. But the last one is glaring, urgent and crucial, as it could determine whether or not there is chaos around the November election. Trump is fomenting chaos, as it is gives him his only chance to stay in office another four years and institute fascism.
Speaker Pelosi is calling the House back into session this week to confront President Donald Trump's attempts to undermine the U.S. Postal Service. There may be a vote as early as Saturday, Aug. 22, on a proposal to block his plans. This special session could easily be used to bring new impeachment charges. No investigation is necessary, since Trump has already condemned himself publically.
