Off The Hook

I'll give you a strange answer.  I hope not because I think impeaching and removing Donald Trump from office would let the American people off the hook and have something happen indirectly that I believe they're duty bound to do directly.  People in this country need to stand up and go to the voting booth and vote their values.

We'll fight about guns.  We'll fight about taxes.  We'll fight about all those other things down the road.  But you cannot have, as president of the United States, someone who does not reflect the values that I believe Republicans treasure and Democrats treasure and Independents treasure.  That is the core of this country.  That's our foundation.  And so impeachment, in a way, would short circuit that.
