Impeachment was far from justified | READER COMMENTARY

The House of Representatives convened for a session to take up articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, nearly a week after an insurrectionist mob of pro-Trump supporters breached the security of the nation's capitol.

What happened in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday was nothing short of a mob lynching and a rush to judgment (”Why remove Trump now? A guide to the second impeachment of a president,” Jan. 13). Something has to be unconstitutional about the speed at which it took place. This was the first time in my 75 years that I was ashamed to be an American.

How must our enemies see us? I am only consoled by the thought that history won’t judge Donald Trump as harshly as some lawmakers. It will be realized that he was the victim of a deep political divide and not a failure as president, or worse, an advocate of violence.
