❝ More than 300 former national security officials have come out in support of an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, arguing the President’s actions in regard to Ukraine are a “profound national security concern.”
“President Trump appears to have leveraged the authority and resources of the highest office in the land to invite additional foreign interference into our democratic processes…that would constitute an unconscionable abuse of power.”…
❝ The bulk of the statement’s signees are former Obama officials, but the list also includes officials who have served in both Republican and Democratic administrations.
Former officials of the intelligence community, the State Department, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Security Council staff are among the signees.
In the same vein, I’m confident there are large numbers of traditional centrist and conservative Republicans who support the impeachment inquiry. No chance of any of them speaking out, though, if they hold a position of significance in the Republican Party…if they wish to keep their job.
