Time Enough for Impeachment
By Jim Babka

I watched a good chunk of last Friday's, Dennis Kucinich-inspired, "I Can't Believe It's Not Impeachment, Non-impeachment Hearings" on C-SPAN. Both many Democrats and nearly all Republicans seem to hold an erroneous view about impeachment, and it goes like this:

"We can't start impeachment now, because this President's term of office will be done in six months."

It appears that this statement is based on the erroneous notion that impeachment is ONLY about removal from office. But we have recent history to tell us that removal from office is a TWO-step process. Bill Clinton was impeached by the House -- which is akin to an indictment. However, he was not convicted after his trial by the Senate, and therefore was NOT removed from office.

Frankly, it really doesn't matter whether or not there are just six weeks left in the term. Beyond removal from office, impeachment should be pursued for the following three reasons . . .
