United States Representative Xochitl Torres Small announced on December 15 that she believes “impeachment is the necessary response” and will be voting to impeach President Donald Trump. Torres Small issued the following statement:
“We cannot allow any President of either party to abuse the power of the highest office, jeopardizing our country’s national security in the process, to pressure foreign leaders to conduct investigations against political rivals. … We also cannot allow any President to obstruct Congress’ power to investigate impeachable offenses by prohibiting White House and other administration officials from testifying or providing evidence. I must act to protect our national security, our Constitution, and the integrity of our elections.”
United State Representative Torrez Small just may be a one term member of Congress because of her decision to vote for Impeachment of President Trump.
If she is, at least she will be able to live with herself and sleep at night the rest of her life knowing full well that Trump needs to be removed, has disgraced the office of President and is the most immoral President we have ever had, and who is not fit to be President.
Trump has betrayed his own country to promote his own personal interests and his family’s financial interests.
If Xochitl Torres Small constituents do not understand or admit Trump is immoral, has disgraced the office and not fit to be President, then why the hell would anyone want to represent them in the first place.
Country over personal interest and political survival is the hallmark of political courage.
