Stop me if you’ve heard these lines before.
“Impeachment is a political process!” followed by some form of “the House can impeach for anything it wants!” and “high crimes and misdemeanors don’t have to actually include a crime!”
As many of our parents once warned us, just because you can do something, that doesn’t make it a good idea. In the case of impeachment and the subsequent Senate trial, removing a president without a crime being committed is a terrible precedent to pursue. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what Democrats are trying to do right now.
