Even up to the time of the impeachment vote, President Trump is displaying his transactional nature. Might does not make right. Holding an ally hostage for someone's own gain does not become right simply because one holds more power.
It is true that President trump's impeachment may not lead to his removal from office. Some therefore think it is simply a waste of time. But as President Trump says in his letter, "One hundred years from now, when people look back at this affair, I want them to understand it, and learn from it, so that it can never happen to another President again." President Trump is indeed correct. Our children need to learn that just being a President does not make one right. Simply being powerful does not make one right. A president can make mistakes. A president can do ill to his or her nation. That is why we have impeachment because this current president has done so many things wrong.
