Response to Algernon Moncrieff (Original post)

31. From how I understand it...

Impeachment is about the integrity and sanctity of the office itself, be it President or otherwise. The person who is in office is then the next case in point. That person's actions are to in no way compromise or denigrate that office, it's oath, etc. and if they do, they can be impeached because of that.

So, we proceed from there to justify the impeachment based on that point of order. How Trump has impacted the position he holds matters most and the details seem to support that already and now there is the process of presenting all the supporting evidence. The rest will reinforce that fact.

If we agree that Trump has had that kind of impact of the office, then we are off to a good start. The proof of crimes are supportive, in this case of what impeachment is about. At least that is my take from what I have read. This is ALL about the office of the POTUS as a position in our political system and Trump just so happens to be the person who is denigrating its place and meaning by his words and actions.

I just thought I would throw that out to cast light on the protection of what we hold dear as a nation, over and above the personality and the primary focus on that. We are protecting something very important, not just getting rid of a bad actor/failure/traitor.
