EDITORIAL: Trump Impeachment a Reminder of Why Telling the Truth Matters

By the time the current edition of The Washington Informer hits the streets, the final vote on two articles of impeachment charged against Donald Trump should have been concluded in the U.S. House of Representatives. And almost certainly, Trump will become only the third U.S. president to be impeached, joining Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton in the ignoble triad.

Now, as the hearings and process shift from the Democratically-controlled House to the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate, we hope that members of Congress will remember that they were elected to “protect and defend the U.S. Constitution” — not the president.

We were dismayed but not surprised to hear Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who will lead proceedings in the Senate, say in no uncertain terms, that he has no plans to call witnesses or to seek additional documents beyond who or what was presented in the House. He says Trump will not be impeached in the U.S. Senate, therefore being removed from office. In other words, he and his fellow Republicans, if he is indeed speaking for his GOP colleagues, do not care about the evidence that’s been submitted or securing the truth. Trump will be protected because he’s one of their “boys.”

It is a very sad day in American history but also a day when we should wake up.

If the president is innocent, if he is being unfairly attacked, if this is all a sham, then we can only suggest one thing: let those who know what really happened be compelled to tell the American public the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
