I certainly haven’t been, I was always more “Please, not Hillary”. And it’s true that watching American politics has been most amusing these past few years as the cultural divide opens out into a chasm. Perhaps not quite the ruling oligarchy but certainly prevailing political fashion has found that some half the country just doesn’t agree. And that in a democracy they do indeed have a voice.
But this seems to be missing part of the point:
Donald Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives, becoming only the third US president to suffer the ignominy and bringing him a step closer to being removed from office.
Two articles of impeachment were passed over his behaviour in the Ukraine scandal – one for abuse of power and the other for obstruction of Congress.
Not a single Republican voted for either article – a fact the White House seized on to portray the Democrats’ impeachment drive as motivated by political bias.
Yes, OK, Trump, whatever.
But does anyone really think that it’s not political bias driving this? Not particularly D such either, but the establishment being pissed at that apple cart being rocked?
