Following up on Brenee Brown’s hope is a function of struggle, the impeachment process, albeit painful, gives me hope.
The hope is not to remove President Trump, although there is a slim chance of that outcome. But the hope is that our political process in this hyperpartisan environment can still work – through the struggle of impeachment.
Erza Klein laid out three functions of the impeachment:
- deterrence to president current and future so they would think twice before acting selfishly,
- exposé of corruption to citizens who are the ultimate judge, and
- warning to foreign entities who may attempt to exploit our political system.
I hope it will also bring healing to us as a country.
What are your thoughts on the impeachment?
