Should Donald Trump be impeached?

Speaker of the United States' House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, has announced the beginning of an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump yesterday, following the president admitting to discussing democratic front-runner Joe Biden with the Ukrainian President. Trump is being accused of pressuring President Volodymyr Zelensky to invest Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who has links to a Ukrainian oligarch, in order to make political gains ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Trump denied the accusations and has warned his impeachment will hurt the US economy, but nonetheless faces further inquiries into his actions as president despite being investigated from 2017-2019 by Robert Mueller. So should Trump be impeached? Is the evidence strong enough this time? Or is Trump right to warn of the negative economic fall-out?

No - the latest “witch hunt garbage”

Trump has called this a con, from the democrats, a crooked media and a whistleblower source that wasn’t even there to witness his phone call, comparing them to a spy. Both Trump and Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky have expressed their denial of the allegations surrounding impeachment, placing all impeachment proceedings solely upon the account of a faceless, nameless whistleblower. Following years of the Mueller Inquiry that found no evidence of collusion with Russia, Trump has correctly labelled efforts to impeach him as what they really are, “witch hunt garbage” [1].

This will backfire for democrats

Even if you hate Trump, impeaching him is a bad idea politically. No president has been removed from office following impeachment, with an impeachment trial needing a supermajority of the Senate to vote to impeach Trump, this would be unlikely considering the Republican support Trump enjoys. Trump will likely then spin failed impeachment proceedings to his benefit using it to justify the conspiracy theory claims he often tweets and talks about. Furthermore, this whole case draws attention to corruption in the Democratic Party too, as it involves Joe Biden’s son who may have been awarded an unfair position in Ukraine due to an Obama era deal. Trump is only vaguely implicated in wrongdoing here, where as the democratic front runner is going to have his history and that of his family investigated, making this impeachment the bad choice and bad timing that will probably help secure Trump’s win in the 2020 presidential election.

Yes, he has a long list of impeachable offenses

Since Trump has taken office he has conducted one of the most controversial presidencies in recent history and many believe much of this conduct to be comprised of impeachable or indictable offenses. Trump has previously been involved in numerous state and federal criminal lawsuits and investigations, involving foreign collusion, campaign financing, and the Trump Organisation benefiting from business deals without the approval of Congress. Additionally his own former attorney, Michael Cohen, has even implicated Trump in a felony, involving hush money being paid to a pornographic film star, Stormy Daniels. Now, if the whistleblowers comments are found to be accurate and Trump’s comments made to the Ukrainian prime minister constitute political pressure to benefit his own reelection campaign he should be impeached, and arguably he should have already been impeached for a long list of offenses.
