In my last column, I argued U.S. President Donald Trump should be impeached, because he has repeatedly shown he cannot be trusted to put the nation’s interest ahead of his own personal political aims. Since I wrote that column, Trump has publicly confirmed the validity of these concerns, most recently by calling for China to investigate the Biden family. If he’s willing to say something like that in the open, can anyone doubt that he’d sell the country out in private if he thought it would benefit him personally? For a good analysis of the situation, see Andrew Sullivan here.
