Today's the day...

The Democrats in the House filed Articles of Impeachment today!

I'm not happy about it, but it the right--perhaps, the 'only'--thing they could do. I'm saddened we've come to this point--but this is where we are.

Republicans have made baseless conspiracy theories (Democratic server in Ukraine, Biden somehow to blame, Ukraine not Russia interfered in the 2016 election--all false) but have no way to substantively refute the clear and dangerous facts that the President invited (perhaps by withholding aid and a White House meeting) to get Ukraine to investigate two American citizens and he ignored the constitution and did not allow Congress to have documents and interview witnesses in order to do their duty to 'check and balance' the Executive Branch of our government.

The Articles will pass the House but probably fail in the Senate.

I simply can't understand why Republicans in both Houses of Congress cannot see the clear and present danger this President  presents to our democracy.

My father--a good and decent man--was a life-long Republican, but he would have been horrified by Republicans not doing 'what's right' and siding with a man who has violated his oath of office in a myriad of ways.

Alas and alack.
