this is in relation to the trump defense team arguments that this impeachment is trying to undo an election... no duh, thats its definition.
furthermore doing it before an election is moral rather than pointless. waiting until after to see if he loses, then launching an impeachment if he wins, allowing him to potentially hand choose our president via vice presidency for nearly a full term. that would be worse. this way republicans have a chance to put forth a replacement for the next election.
Yes. I suppose impeaching someone is removing them from the position they were elected to hold. In the literal sense, that is "undoing" an election. But when they accepted the position they were elected to hold, they agreed to abide by certain rules. If they breach those rules and abuse the power of their office, they can and should be removed.
The issue is not that people want to "undo" an election. The issue is that an elected official has proven himself unworthy of the position of trust he was given.
i don't see how the removal of any elected official can not be the undoing of an election. however, impeachment still found itself into the constitution.
i wonder if the disagrees will comment
