Local Party Leaders Disagree on Impeaching Trump

(Washington, D.C.) - The U.S. House of Representatives has taken a step toward impeaching the president.  Articles of Impeachment were presented today, accusing President Trump of "inciting violence against the government of the United States" during last week’s invasion of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C.


La Porte County Republican Party Chairman Mitch Feikes believes the impeachment efforts is a waste of time since the president will be leaving the White House when his term ends on January 20.  Feikes believes the focus should be on other major issues like delivering the COVID-19 vaccines.  “We got bigger problems in this country than trying to take revenge against Donald Trump,” he said.


Meanwhile, La Porte County Democrat Party Chairwoman Carol McDaniel believes the President should be forced to leave office right now.  She thinks Trump’s actions during the violence last week demonstrates that he has not represented all U.S. citizens since taking the oath of office and he remains a potential danger with just over a week remaining in his term.  “He needs to go now,” she said.


When a vote on impeachment will be taken in the House is not known.
