Let’s Talk about Impeachment…

Kyle Ahn, News Editor

Do you support the current impeachment process?

 

Ali Rahimi (Conservative): 

I support it in a sense of finding the truth. Obviously, things aren’t adding up with the whole Ukraine scandal.The atmosphere surrounding it isn’t where it should be. It’s pretty aggressive. It’s being used more of a way to punish Trump rather than find out what’s happening behind the scenes.

Emmy Rener (Liberal): 

It needs to happen. There’s a lot of smoke and mirrors with this administration. There’s been so many false statements, so we need to get down to the truth and figure out what exactly happened. 

 

Ali, what do you think of the phone call that Trump made to Ukraine, which is the key incident of this impeachment inquiry?

Ali: Well, typically when Trump is accused of something, he denies it completely. That’s what makes this case different. He isn’t denying anything. I think it’s not really about what he did, but how he did it. 

 

President Trump tweeted that the Democrats sought for his impeachment since day one in office, calling it a “witch hunt.” Emmy, what do you think of how the Democrats treat him?

Emmy: They’ve treated him in a very cut-throat nature, but for good reason on some things. Considering this whole impeachment thing has to do with his election and that it started since day one alludes to the fact that this has been an issue since day one. 

 

Why do you think Republicans are so adamant to defend Trump despite all the accusations?

Ali: I think that Republicans are split into two. There are some Republicans that say Trump was well within his rights and he should be acquitted. There are also some who believe he isn’t above the law and deserves proper treatment. I feel like what he did was wrong, but I’m not sure if it is wrong enough to get him impeached.

 

The election is right around the corner. Why care about the impeachment now?

 

Emmy: I think it is more about the statute that impeachment represents. If we were to not impeach, that is basically allowing and progressing the idea that you can do illegal things and be above the law. 

Ali: I consider impeachment the final straw. Trump has been accused of numerous things, but it hasn’t reached the point to where there has been an impeachment inquiry.
