Congressman To Introduce Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump After Charlottesville Comments Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, has announced that he will introduce articles of impeachment against Trump after the President’s comments on the violence in Charlottesville.

In a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, Cohen said: I have expressed great concerns about President Trump’s ability to lead our country in the Resolution of No Confidence (H Res 456) that I introduced in July with 29 of my colleagues; however, after the President’s comments on Saturday, August 12 and again on Tuesday, August 15 in response to the horrific events in Charlottesville, I believe the President should be impeached and removed from office. Instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the President said ‘there were very fine people on both sides.’ There are no good Nazis. Es gibt keine guten Mitglieder des Ku-Klux-Klans.

Wir kämpften einen Weltkrieg, um Nazis zu besiegen und einen Bürgerkrieg, um die Konföderation zu besiegen. Als Reaktion auf die Niederlage der Konföderation und die anschließende Verabschiedung der Rekonstruktion-Gesetzesänderungen zur Verfassung fing der KKK eine niederträchtige Kampagne an, schwarze Amerikaner zu terrorisieren und einzuschüchtern, um sie davon abzuhalten, ihre neu gewonnenen Bürgerrechte auszuüben. ... Die Folgegenerationen des Klans terrorisierten weiterhin Afroamerikaner durch Lynchmorde und die Morde an den Anführern der Bürgerrechtsbewegung wie die Ermordung von Medger Evers und die Morde an Schwerner, Chaney, Goodman und andere Bürgerrechtsarbeiter.

Als ich die Videos über die Proteste in Charlottsville ansah, erinnerte es mich an die Videos, die ich über die Kristallnacht im Jahr 1938 in Deutschland angesehen habe. ... Es schien, dass die Demonstranten in Charlottesville im Gleichklang schrien: "Die Juden sollen uns nicht verdrängen" und "Blut und Boden", einen berüchtigten nazistischen Wahlspruch, während sie mit Fackeln, die die Bilder von Klan-Kundgebungen beschworen, marschierten... Keiner der Demonstranten, die solchen Wortschwall ausspuckten, kann als "sehr gute Menschen" gelten, wie der Präsident vorschlug. Und ist sicher, die Teilnehmer wären im Gleichschritt erschienen. Einige der weißen Nationalisten von den Medien befragt wurden, wie Sean Patrick Nielsen. Er sagte, einer seiner drei Gründe für seine Anwesenheit dort war "Juden zu Töten". Ein anderer war Christopher Cantwell, einer der Anführer der weißen Nationalisten, der sagte, er konnte es nicht leiden, dass "jener Kushner-Schweinehund mit jener schönen Frau herumläuft", und sagte, er hofft, "jemand wie Donald Trump, der aber einem Juden seine Tochter nicht gibt", würde dieses Land führen. Als Jude und als Amerikaner und als Kongressabgeordneter eines Bundeswahlkreises, dessen Einwohner überwiegend Afroamerikaner sind, werde ich durch die Tatsache beleidigt, dass der Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten nicht aufstehen und unmissverständlich Nazis verurteilen könnte, die die Juden töten wollen und deren Vorgänger während des Holocausts sechs Millionen Juden mordeten, und der Präsident unmissverständlich Klanmänner nicht verurteilen könnte, deren Organization sich zum Ziel gesetzt hat, Afroamerikaner zu terrorisieren.

Präsident Trump ist im Präsidentschaftstest der moralischen Führung gescheitert. Kein moralischer Präsident würde sich jemals zurückscheuen von dem völlig verurteilten Hass, der Intoleranz und dem Fanatismus. Kein moralischer Präsident würde jemals die Werte der Amerikaner in Frage stellen, die im Gegensatz zu solchen Aktionen protestieren, von denen einer von einem weißen Nationalisten ermordert wurde. Senator John McCain rightfully tweeted this week that there was ‘no moral equivalency between racists and Americans standing up to defy hate.’ Senator Marco Rubio tweeted, “Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists.” President Trump has shown time and time again that he lacks the ethical and moral rectitude to be President of the United States. Not only has he potentially obstructed justice and potentially violated the Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments Clause, but he has also shown that he is incapable or unwilling to protect Americans from enemies, foreign and domestic. Neonazis und die KKK (Ku-Klux-Klan) sind inländische Terroristen. Wenn der Präsident den Unterschied zwischen inländischen Terroristen und den Menschen, die ihr antiamerikanisches Verhalten ablehnen , nicht erkennt, dann kann er sie nicht beschützen.

Martin Niemöller, ein herausragender Pastor, der ein freimütiger Kritiker an Adolph Hitler war, sagte: "Man kam zuerst, um die Sozialisten abzuholen, und ich sprach mich nicht aus, weil ich kein Sozialist war".

Dann kamen sie von den Gewerkschaftlern, und ich äußerte mich nicht - weil ich kein Gewerkschaftler war.

Dann kamen sie von den Juden, und ich äußerte mich nicht - weil ich kein Jude war.

Dann kamen sie zu mir - und dann war niemand mehr für mich zu sprechen.

Die Mehrheit meines Kongresswahlkreises ist zu mir gekommen. Dementsprechend muss ich heute unserem Präsidenten nachträglich eine Rückmeldung geben, was am Samstag passiert ist. Basieren auf meinen Amtseid bin ich moralisch und rechtlich verpflichtet, ein Amtsenthebungsverfahren laut Satzung einzuleiten.

Speaker Paul Ryan really wants to cut taxes for the rich, so expect him to turn a blind eye to Trump’s racism and knock down any impeachment efforts, but if Democrats win back the House in 2018 it won’t be a matter of if Trump will be impeached, but only when and for what.

Früher oder später kommt das Amtsenthebungsverfahren für Donald Trump.

Congressman To Introduce Articles Of Impeachment Against Trump After Charlottesville Comments
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) the Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, has announced that he will introduce articles of impeachment against Trump after the President’s comments on the violence in Charlottesville.

In a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, Cohen said:

I have expressed great concerns about President Trump’s ability to lead our country in the Resolution of No Confidence (H Res 456) that I introduced in July with 29 of my colleagues; however, after the President’s comments on Saturday, August 12 and again on Tuesday, August 15 in response to the horrific events in Charlottesville, I believe the President should be impeached and removed from office. Instead of unequivocally condemning hateful actions by neo-Nazis, white nationalists and Klansmen following a national tragedy, the President said ‘there were very fine people on both sides.’ There are no good Nazis. There are no good Klansmen.

We fought a World War to defeat Nazis, and a Civil War to defeat the Confederacy. In reaction to the downfall of the Confederacy, and the subsequent passage of the Reconstruction Amendments to our constitution, the KKK embarked on a dastardly campaign to terrorize and intimidate African Americans from exercising their newly acquired civil rights. Subsequent incarnations of the Klan continued to terrorize African Americans with lynchings and civil rights murders such as the assassination of Medgar Evers and the killings of Schwerner, Chaney, Goodman and other civil rights workers.

When I watched the videos from the protests in Charlottesville, it reminded me of the videos I’ve seen of Kristallnacht in 1938 in Nazi Germany. It appeared that the Charlottesville protesters were chanting ‘Jews will not replace us’ and ‘blood and soil,’ an infamous Nazi slogan, as they marched with torches that conjured up images of Klan rallies. None of the marchers spewing such verbiage could be considered ‘very fine people’ as the President suggested. And it certainly appeared the participants were in lock-step. Some of the white nationalist protesters were interviewed by the media, such as Sean Patrick Nielsen. He said one of his three reasons for being there was ‘killing Jews.’ Another was Christopher Cantwell, one of the white nationalist leaders, who said he couldn’t watch ‘that Kushner bastard walk around with that beautiful girl’ and said he hoped ‘somebody like Donald Trump, but who does not give his daughter to a Jew,’ would lead this country. As a Jew and as an American and as a representative of an African American district, I am revolted by the fact that the President of the United States couldn’t stand up and unequivocally condemn Nazis who want to kill Jews and whose predecessors murdered 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, and could not unequivocally condemn Klansmen whose organization is dedicated to terrorizing African Americans.

President Trump has failed the presidential test of moral leadership. No moral president would ever shy away from outright condemning hate, intolerance and bigotry. No moral president would ever question the values of Americans protesting in opposition of such actions, one of whom was murdered by one of the white nationalists. Senator John McCain rightfully tweeted this week that there was ‘no moral equivalency between racists and Americans standing up to defy hate.’ Senator Marco Rubio tweeted, “Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists.” President Trump has shown time and time again that he lacks the ethical and moral rectitude to be President of the United States. Not only has he potentially obstructed justice and potentially violated the Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments Clause, but he has also shown that he is incapable or unwilling to protect Americans from enemies, foreign and domestic. Neo-Nazis and the KKK are domestic terrorists. If the President can’t recognize the difference between these domestic terrorists and the people who oppose their anti-American attitudes, then he cannot defend us.

Martin Niemöller, a prominent Protestant pastor who was an outspoken critic of Adolph Hitler, said:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

They have come for me, and for the majority of my Congressional constituency. Accordingly, I must speak out today after what happened on Saturday and our President’s subsequent response. It is morally and legally incumbent upon me, based on my oath of office, to introduce articles of impeachment.

Speaker Paul Ryan really wants to cut taxes for the rich, so expect him to turn a blind eye to Trump’s racism and knock down any impeachment efforts, but if Democrats win back the House in 2018 it won’t be a matter of if Trump will be impeached, but only when and for what.

Sooner or later, impeachment is coming for Donald Trump.
