Read The Letter: 300 Former National Security Officials Say Impeachment Path Now ‘Necessary’

"An unconscionable abuse of power".

Statement signed by more than 300 former national security and foreign policy officials   September 27, 2019 As national security professionals, many of us have long been concerned with President Trump’s actions and their implications for our safety and security. Some of us have spoken out, but many of us have eschewed politics throughout our careers and, as a result, have not weighed in publicly. The revelations of recent days, however, demand a response.

    I somewhat agree with the idea of Pelosi, but she is the one that initiated the process. It seems that the other side – who are apparently patriots – are hiding silently in their little holes.
