To All This Matter Concerns:
Perhaps I am ignorant – according to Wikipedia: “Impeachment in the United States is an expressed power of the legislature that allows formal charges to be brought against a civil officer of government for crimes alleged to have been committed while in office… At the federal level, Article II of the United States Constitution states in Section 4 that ‘The President, Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemeanors’.” (AN: punctuation edited slightly, for the sake of clarity.)
Now, I am very distressed about what I’ve seen regarding Secretary Clinton’s acts of Perjury during the Benghazi Hearings, and I’m wondering, as such a misdemeanor is clearly a constitutional violation, why Impeachment Proceedings have not begun immediately. Congress has the power to do so – why are they condoning this selfish act by refusing? It is SUPREMELY selfish to blatantly lie just because, Personal Opinion, you’re more worried about your upcoming Presidential Campaign than Justice.
Some would call wanting an Impeachable President selfish, as well.
No, I don’t want Trump in Office – Yes, we have another Democratic Nominee. Despite having donated to Bernie Sanders’ campaign, he is not the candidate who aligns with this constituent’s true will which is to be represented through the act of voting. I will BE deciding until November, as it is the Civic Duty of every American to educate themselves as much as possible about this election prior to voting. As it is an American Right to speak freely in political matters, I submit this open correspondence for your reading, and eagerly look forward to your written or verbal response.
