Trump has accumulated a significant amount of possible Impeachable offenses, any of which would of had landed a Democrat in Hot water immediately, with soon to follow on-going investigations left and right and at the very least with calls for on the spot resignation by Republicans, yet, the Republican House and Senate has gone totally MUM, Brain Dead when it comes to Trump.
Republicans have put their self interests and that of their lobbyists front and center, never mind that they were elected, sent to both the House and Senate to represent the interests and will of the people that elected them, as well as the interests of all Americans. After all, no party or affiliation lives on a bubble, what they do for one, will affect the others.
But Republicans, Irrespective of the facts that Polls after Polls on important issues that affect the vast majority of American have been highlighted, amplified, brought forth, for they to take the necessary steps toward resolving such or at the very least start addressing those issues, things most Americans agree on, had turned a blind eye, gone “dormant” instead aiding and abating offenses that could render Trump, impeachable.
They took an Oath to Protect and uphold the Constitution of the United State, (that means you and the country you live in), most everything that affect you in a Constitutional Basis, and that may affect you currently and into the future.
They have basically thus far managed to trampled on the Oath they took upon taking office, to Protect and uphold the Constitution of the United State.
Take a look:
The Oath to Uphold the Constitution
Article VI clause 3 of the United States Constitution requires that all who hold office in the United States take an oath to uphold the United States Constitution:
“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution… “
In compliance with this requirement, as they enter office, Members of Congress take the
Following oath of office:
“I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
Article II Section 1 of the United States Constitution defines and requires the President of the United States to take a specific oath as he assumes that office:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (United States Constitution Article II, Section 1, emphasis added). So help me God.
*According to Scott Bradley. An oath is defined in Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary as:
“A solemn affirmation or declaration, made with an appeal to God for the truth of what is affirmed. The appeal to God in an oath, implies that the person imprecates his vengeance and renounces his favor if the declaration is false, or if the declaration is a promise, the person invokes the vengeance of God if he should fail to fulfill it. A false oath is called perjury.”
*Bradley was the Constitution Party nominee for Vice President of the United States in the 2016 election, sharing the ticket with Darrell Castle. Wikipedia
So far Trump has fail to live up to his obligations to “Protect”, giving the Russians a pass at every turn (only recently taking some actions against the Russians) well into his presidency while criticizing alienating those that could help him achieve his goals of “Protecting” this country, US allies.
But, you should pay particular attention to that part of the Oath “So help me God”, and on the definition: “the vengeance of God if he should fail to fulfill it”.
Guess these Republican are not a very religious nor God fearing lot (regardless of what they led you to believe constantly highlighted on the news praying and or invoking God), more often than not Trump and the Legislative majority much rather be dancing with the devil as they’re constantly violating, trampling on the Oath they took. Do you think, Trump should be impeached?
