Senators Must Stand Up For America

President Donald Trump has the rare distinction of being impeached twice by the House of Representatives. Just as he created history in 2016 by getting elected after beating 16 Republicans in primaries, and finally defeating Democrat Hilary Clinton, he created history again on January 6, 2021 by being the first siting President to incite insurrection. The article of impeachment stated that Trump “repeatedly issued false statements asserting that the presidential election results were fraudulent and should not be accepted”.

It says he then repeated these claims and “willfully made statements to the crowd that encouraged and foreseeably resulted in lawless action at the Capitol”, leading to the violence and loss of life.

“President Trump gravely endangered the security of the United States and its institutions of government, threatened the integrity of the democratic system, interfered with the peaceful transition of power, and imperiled a coequal branch of government.”

However, it remains to be seen if the Republican Senators will embrace moral values or continue to be the blind followers of Trump.  It is going to be a tough choice for them, though. But they had better know it is now or never for them to get rid of a person who has dictatorial mindset , and who has usurped all power of the Republican party, and has created an aura around himself, which is no good for any political outfit. There already are some who have declared their intention to support the House impeachment when it comes to the Senate. But then, many more Republican Senators will be needed to uphold the House impeachment and convict President  Trump. Will they stand up to the hour? The next few days will decide on the future course of history of America.
