Letter to the editor: Violated his oath

Posted

The President of the United States takes an oath of office required by our Constitution. Every President from George Washington to Abraham Lincoln to Franklin Roosevelt has affirmed this oath. They solemnly swear to faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and will to the best of their ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

I think Donald Trump has violated his oath of office by using taxpayer-funded military aid to pressure a foreign country to help his re-election campaign. The Constitution says that the President can be impeached for treason, bribery, or high crimes and misdemeanors. Donald Trump bribed the government of Ukraine.

Congress needs to put our country over their party labels. I believe Trump violated his oath of office and abused his power. For that, for failing to defend and protect our Constitution, President Trump should be impeached.
