Suggesting Pres. Trump should be impeached is dangerous – Former Ohio Congressman

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

Former Ohio congressman and Fox News contributor, Dennis Kucinich, that there is a “danger in engaging in compulsive opposition.”

Kucinich, who called for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney over the decision to go to war in Iraq, said calling for impeachment is only an option “after exhausting a number of other options.”“It is destructive to America to proceed with an impeachment at this stage of the presidency,” Kucinich said. “This is not the first thing you reach for, because when the first big move a party makes is towards impeachment, it’s very difficult for the American people to conclude that it is anything but a partisan issue.”

To impeach the president of the United States, the House of Representatives must have the support of the majority of members. At this point, no Republicans have voiced support, or even suggested to begin the impeachment process.Though Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, has said she is doing her “homework” on the issue, she also took a shot at the vice president suggesting he wouldn’t be much better.

“I will just say I understand the calls for impeachment, but what I am being cautious about and what I give you food for thought about is that if President Trump is impeached, the problems don’t go away, because then you have a Vice President Pence who becomes President Pence,” Gabbard said at a town hall last month.

Kucinich told Fox News that while he is aware of the extreme opposition to President Trump’s policies, Democrats should focus on their ability to impact policy, which could be “attractive” to Americans in 2018. “It’s far better to offer alternatives to the policies of this president,” Kucinich said. “Otherwise, this is a grim partisan effort which inevitably will go nowhere.”

Following the backlash of a  New York Times report , Tuesday suggesting that Trump asked Comey to end the probe into former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn, former Republican Rep. David Jolly, R-Fla., joined the train of those suggesting the Trump’s may not be in White House for long.
