Now that President Donald J. Trump has been impeached (yesterday), can the people of the United States begin to repair the damage wrought by him as I prayed last week?
I’m trying to be an optimist. I see a balancing act between this president and the American people. Donald Trump has fallen from grace. The American people are rising in a nascent recovery.
Of course, President Trump can wreak havoc over the next thirteen months. He ran for office on the premise of becoming the Disrupter-in-Chief, and he has kept his campaign promise.
Nevertheless, he can’t cease to be impeached. The U.S. Senate can render a verdict of not guilty in his trial, but he can never be exonerated in the sense of being declared innocent. (More of this to follow.)
I’ve had a stubborn cold and been drinking hot tea with lemon juice. It’s not quite tea with sugar, but I feel less tense since the House of Representatives adopted the articles of impeachment.
