USA Today editorial board calls for Trump's impeachment

Source: The Hill

USA Today’s editorial board called for President Trump’s impeachment in a scathing new editorial, accusing the president of meeting the impeachment inquiry launched by House Democrats with “outright and unprecedented defiance” and abusing his contacts with Ukraine.

“Put your own narrow interests ahead of the nation's, flout the law, violate the trust given to you by the American people and recklessly disregard the oath of office, and you risk losing your job,” the editorial board wrote.

“USA TODAY’s Editorial Board wrote those words two decades ago when it endorsed the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, a Democrat," it continued. "Now, in graver circumstances with America’s system of checks and balances at stake, they apply to another president facing impeachment, Republican Donald Trump."

The USA Today editorial board said that “Trump’s egregious transgressions and stonewalling have given the House little choice but to press ahead with the most severe sanction at its disposal.”

USA Today has the largest circulation of any US newspaper.

And its audience is generally considered moderate/centrist, not liberal.

5. da K&R

Hard to believe a rePutican leaning paper taking such a stand.

But I'll take it.

Here's to more editorial boards coming forward in favor of impeachment and removal.

7. More will be doing this too

While republicans stupidly try to hang on . What will happen is a lot more gets exposed to how more crimes were being committed and the republicans knew and have been complicit, especially Moscow Mitch. If they don't remove trump more of them will be in legal troubles for being a part of it all along.

9. These papers are at every hotel in America, it has very wide coverage.

It is also generally rather conservative, so this is a huge WIN for us and for truth and the American way. Woohoo!!
