There are many talks about the impeachment of President Trump. Although, as Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) points out, the impeachment of a president under these circumstances isn’t a “rational” option. “I don’t think very many people take that very seriously,” he said, according to The Washington Examiner.
I don’t recall this big of an outcry for an impeachment of President Barack Obama when I can recall a few reasons that he should have been.
- The Drone strike in Pakistan that killed hundreds of civilians, along with many unarmed victims, Amnesty International found that some of these strikes could amount to War Crimes
- The Bowe Bergdahl Trade: Obama went against America’s #1 unwritten rule, ” We don’t negotiate with terrorists”, by exchanging 5 Taliban commanders for an Army Sgt. who abandoned his post
- Veterans dying waiting for care: President Obama has promised to make healthcare for Veterans more accessible. Even after the VA Scandal happened, exposing the process and problems these Veterans have to endure, just to try to get treated, it has only gotten worse.
- The Benghazi cover-up: Four Americans died in attacks, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, that Obama and his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton have been accused of lying about knowledge of this attack before hand and failed to provide security.
So, if you would not even consider the impeachment of a President that has caused all of the listed events above, you should rethink the impeachment of President Trump, as his actions are pretty non-comparable
