With Donald Trump admitting that he divulged secrets to Russian officials after members of his administration tried to maintain he did not, one veteran’s group is speaking out.
“Now that Donald Trump has admitted that the Washington Post story is not ‘fake news’ at all, Congress must immediately convene an impeachment inquiry to gather all the facts, and determine if what Donald Trump did rises to the level of impeachment, and removal from office,” said Will Fischer, Iraq War Veteran and Director of Government Relations for VoteVets. “Under normal circumstances, Congress could use a slower process, with multiple hearings and investigations, before moving to impeachment.”
“However, given that the central question around Trump’s actions is the security of the United States, and American lives, we do not have the luxury of time,” said Fischer. “Therefore, it is appropriate to concurrently investigate this matter and weigh whether it is an impeachable offense.”
“On another note, we would urge H.R. McMaster to resign,” said Fischer, speaking of the retired military leader who is Trump’s national security adviser. “There is being a good soldier, and then there is sticking your neck out to mislead the country, to protect a president that is acting recklessly and possibly endangering American lives.”
McMaster very publicly denied what later turned out to be accurate accounts of what happened.
