Dem Congressman Admits Impeachment is About Banning Trump from Office

Meanwhile, Trump’s already plotting his 2024 run.

This second impeachment of Donald Trump has become quite the controversial thing, coming into a life of its own now that the former President is far away from Washington, swinging his clubs down at Mar-a-Lago as a private citizen.,

At first, in the immediate aftermath of the siege on the Capitol, the impeachment wasn’t all that controversial.  Even Republicans understood the maneuver as a reaction to what had happened, and there were few loud or boisterous complaints…at first.

Now, some weeks later, the GOP is beginning to bristle at the idea of convicting Trump.  Some within the party are even exuding a flippant attitude about it, suggesting that Trump being gone from the White House will be all the prevention that they need.

On the other side of the aisle, however, they are no longer hiding the fact that they want Trump completely banned from holding any public office ever again, from President to local dog catcher.

Lead impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Monday on MSNBC’s “All In” that the point of impeachment was to “protect the Republic” from former President Donald Trump and prevent him from holding federal office in the future.

Raskin said, “We intend to show the worst presidential crime against the Republic in American history. The violence was terrifying and overwhelming. Five people died, police officer hit over the head with a fire extinguisher, police officers beat up, grabbed, pushed, shoved, jostled.”

Then came the heavier assertions.

He added, “One thing that I want to point out is that impeachment is not so much nearly about the past as it is about the future. The framers of the Constitution put impeachment, conviction and disqualification from further federal office holding in the Constitution to protect the Republic, to preserve the Constitution. That’s why it’s in there. President Trump or any other Trump who’s impeached and convicted doesn’t send a single minute in jail. It is not a criminal prosecution. It is a protective, civil action to guard the Republic against someone who’s committed high crimes and misdemeanors against the people and proven himself to be a danger to the country.”

Trump, meanwhile, has been reportedly speaking at length about plans to run for President once again in 2024.
