I listened to the testimony. I read the summarized transcript of the President’s phone call. It is my assessment that the evidence presented shows beyond a reasonable double that the President committed the offenses charged. His acts constitute a threat to our national security and to our democracy. He has violated his oath of office by placing his own interests above those of the nation and by refusing to participate in the Constitutionally established process for addressing his actions. Moreover, having watched the impeachment events unfold, I believe that he pushed the House leadership into a corner so that they had no choice but to move forward with impeachment. I can only speculate that he somehow believes that this will improve his chances for re-election.
