Speak Out: Impeachment report

The House released a sweeping impeachment report Tuesday outlining evidence of what it calls President Donald Trump’s wrongdoing toward Ukraine, findings that will serve as the foundation for debate over whether the 45th president should be removed from office.

The 300 -page report from Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee makes the case that Trump misused the power of his office and, in the course of their investigation, obstructed Congress by stonewalling the proceedings. Based on two months of investigation, the report contains evidence and testimony from current and former U.S. officials.

“The President placed his personal political interests above the national interests of the United States, sought to undermine the integrity of the U.S. presidential election process, and endangered U.S. national security,” the report said.

• That statement says it all. Trump is a risk and liability to this country, and needs to be removed via impeachment or by election. However, there will be those individuals who will follow Trump regardless of what he says or does and for them, I’m sorry you can’t see the obvious! — Merv Sparks

•Then there’s you liberals who still follow Hillary and the socialist party (Democrats). Economy is booming, Trump is pulling troops back, etc., etc., so yeah he’s a big risk to the country. Obama trashed the economy and military. I bet you weren’t complaining then. — Michael Scott Fulcher

• This won’t be the first report from our trustworthy government with no agenda of its own. — William Jamar

• There will be a massive red wave in 2020. Keep it up Democrats! — Mark Schmalhofer

•Again. Define “evidence”. — Jason Rextc

• The least amount of evidence for consideration by any actual U.S. court — District, Circuit, State Appeals Court, the Supreme Court — is a preponderance of the evidence. Actual evidence, written, verbal from a firsthand witness – word for word, unaltered pictures or video that are clear and show actual legal wrongdoing, like a dealer handing a junkie drugs while the junkie hands him cash You know, quid pro quo.Both parties have to actually benefit. — Victoria M. Olds

• Democrat impeachment conclusion: LIES, LIES, and more LIES. — Victor Santillan

• And there you have it. the corruption of the Democrats being distracted by a bunch of criminals in Congress. — Earl Lofland

• Trump has more support than anyone realizes and has only gained more since 2016. More and more people are waking up as the democrats are being exposed. Nobody is buying these lies and fraudulent reports. The left and the Democrat-only media knows this and will continue their relentless assault on the truth. — Marc Auger

• Well of course they have to write a report to match their narrative. — Marla Carter

• Trump is being investigated for investigating Democrat crime and election meddling in the 2016 election. That’s rich! He is the executive branch and its his sworn duty to investigate crime and to uphold the law. Just because Uncle Joe is a political rival (barely) doesn’t give him a free pass for corruption. Otherwise, everybody in Congress would be running for president. However, apparently, it did work for Hillary in the Obama Justice Department. — Chris Wolfe

• The upcoming IG report more than likely will go into great detail of how Democrats, those resistance members in the intelligence community, and their media allies all colluded to frame the president of crimes they actually committed. The so-called Russian collusion was a complete fraud perpetrated by individuals trying to cover and hide their own crimes of which there is overwhelming proof of now. With more and more evidence of Democrat involvement with corrupt Ukrainian officials this looks to be about the same. — Shawn Knox
