Congress has a responsibility to start impeachment proceedings on Trump

Hundreds of protesters came together while Trump visited Orlando to rally together and "Win With Love."

Once the whole country comes together to shame President Donald Trump, then and only then does he feel it (“Trump, in 2020 campaign mode, calls Democrats 'radical,'” June 19). And if we don’t come together as a party, as Democrats, with a unified voice and demand impeachment, it absolutely won’t happen, and the president will continue to flaunt his naked desire to win at any cost, even at the expense of our national security.

Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland jumped the gun with a public statement denouncing impeachment without even having read the Mueller report, within hours after it was released. Too many Democrats, like Hoyer, have absconded their duty to faithfully execute their responsibilities under the Constitution because they are too afraid of being wrong. They are so afraid of being “wrong” that they are unwilling to do what’s right. We must initiate the impeachment process because to do otherwise is turning a blind eye to what is in front of us. President Trump admitted that he is still willing to take “dirt” on political opponents from whoever would be willing to offer it up. He doesn’t care if you can see that he isn’t wearing any clothes because he can see right through Congress’ rhetoric and straight to their inaction.
