That’s what we said

Students share thoughts about impeachment issue


The first Whistleblower came forward by filling out a nine-page complaint on August 12th saying that he or she learned from “multiple U.S. government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.” (CBS News) The complaint was revealed on July 25th, 2019 President Trump had a 30 minute phone call with the President of Ukraine. In this phone call, President Trump asked for an investigation on Democratic Presidential Joe Biden and his son Hunter was formerly director of a Ukrainian oil company. As a result of the report from the whistleblower, Nancy Pelosi opened a formal impeachment inquiry. This opens the question, Are people for Trump’s impeachment or against it?

As stated by junior Favor George “I think he went beyond his power with his call with Ukraine trying to solicit information on Biden…that is legal…so if he does get impeached, I think it would be fair, but it seems a little unnecessary… to go for impeachment.” It goes to show people are on the fence of Trump’s impeachment, for it is not understandable if it even fair to take him out of office for the Ukraine incident.

On October 3, 2019 Pres. Trump tweeted “As the President of the United States, I have an absolute right, perhaps even a duty, to investigate, or have investigated, CORRUPTION, and that would include asking, or suggesting, other Countries to help us out!”

When asking junior Jennifer Williams if it’s right for Pres. Trump to go around and asking if it is right to ask for outside help, she responded “I don’t think that’s right or necessary… all that’s going to do is like cause trouble, scandals and you’re going to make people mad, because asking other countries to interfere with your elections that’s kind of cheating, just make it a fair race for everybody…”

When asking students and teachers on what their opinion on Pres. Trumps impeachment is, and if they are for or against his impeachment their response vary.

Senior Donna Robinson sides with for impeachment, “I think Trump’s impeachment is important. It is something that has become very favorable among Americans.” She refines by stating that “The only concern that I have with it, if (Vice President) Pence became our new president he’d be much more of a scarier force then Trump.” But she’s still for Trump’s impeachment.

The House of Representatives, with the majority of the house being Democrats, brings up the inquiry of the process of impeaching a President. But it’s up to the Senate with it being ruled by Republicans if it is a viable reason to impeach Trump. It has been said that there is an unlikely chance Trump would get impeached for that reason.

This includes senior Viviana Fernandez who offers her own reasoning why Trump should be impeached.

“My opinion on it is that he should be impeached, and it’s a good idea he’s been causing problems for America and he doesn’t deal with them correctly. Trump is extremely ignorant and doesn’t seem to have sympathy for people, overall so overall I feel like Trump’s impeachment is going to make America better”

On the other side of things there are some people that against his impeachment and with good reason.

Junior Evelyn Ayala makes a Compelling argument to state her point, “I don’t think it is smart to do it now. I think it’s useless since he will not be in office in a year.”

She later restates her opinion on why she’s against impeachment.

“Okay I’m against it not only because it’s his last year also because the Vice President is going to be in charge after he’s impeachment, Pence wouldn’t be any better to leave for the couple last month in the office”

There is a diverse sum of people with different views, opinions, on Trumps impeachment. Whether they’re are for or against it, we can’t yet determent what the senate will decide if he is to be impeached.
