The GOP’s broken promises

Remember impeachment?

Back in the first months of 2020 — before COVID, before the economy collapsed, before George Floyd was murdered, and before the ugly mess of a presidential campaign — the United States Senate held an impeachment trial to decide whether President Trump had abused the powers of his office, and whether he should thus be removed from that office. It all seems a million years ago at this point, but it remains important.

Trump was acquitted, but not exactly exonerated.

Instead, a few Republicans argued that, yes, the president had done something “inappropriate” when he pressured Ukraine officials to announce an investigation into the business activities of Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, but that, especially in an election year, it should be left to voters to decide Trump’s fate.
