Donald Trump vs. the United States of America

Sometimes it’s worth stepping back to look at the full picture.

He has pressured a foreign leader to interfere in the 2020 American presidential election.

He urged a foreign country to intervene in the 2016 presidential election.

He divulged classified information to foreign officials.

It's not rocket science (we list these things daily on DU) or some brilliant piece of writing...

Save your limited read of articles on NYT and your time to bother reading this "list" from David Leonhardt

Here are a some excerpted that that don't even make up a few paragraphs from an article and relate to committed crimes that should be used for articles of impeachment:

He has pressured a foreign leader to interfere in the 2020 American presidential election.
He urged a foreign country to intervene in the 2016 presidential election.
He divulged classified information to foreign officials.
He publicly undermined American intelligence agents while standing next to a hostile foreign autocrat.
He hired a national security adviser who he knew had secretly worked as a foreign lobbyist.
He encourages foreign leaders to enrich him and his family by staying at his hotels.

He lied to the American people about his company’s business dealings in Russia.
He has been accused of sexual assault or misconduct by multiple women.
He obstructed justice by trying to influence an investigation into his presidential campaign.
He violated federal law by directing his lawyer to pay $280,000 in hush money to cover up two apparent extramarital affairs.
He has refused to release his tax returns.
He claimed that federal law-enforcement agents and prosecutors regularly fabricated evidence, thereby damaging the credibility of criminal investigations across the country.
He has ordered children to be physically separated from their parents.

He is the president of the United States, and he is a threat to virtually everything that the United States should stand for.
