I am dismayed by the process of the impeachment of President Donald Trump, in which everyone seems to be posturing and positioning for re-election rather than trying to discover the truth of the various matters under discussion. The discussions are aimed at emotions rather than reason.

Outside the impeachment discussion is that China and Russia are at war with America and have been for decades. China is stealing our technology and Russia is undermining our democracy by spreading disinformation.

President Trump is standing up to China and letting them know that America won’t stand for “business as usual.”

President Trump is cozying up to Russia and actually asked the Russians to hack into our systems. He has praised Vladimir Putin and has conducted himself many times as if he were Putin, ignoring checks and balances only to find himself thwarted by the courts or other parts of the American system.

Ultimately, our senators are going to decide if America would be better off with Trump as president or not. I hope they carefully consider all aspects of his presidency before voting.
