The Huge Flaw in the Impeachment Debate

I generally re-post everything I write or link to it elsewhere. While I mostly write about sustainability and climate, over the last couple of years I've ventured into politics more (especially since we can't solve the biggest sustainability issues like climate change and inequality unless we have a functioning democracy).

I wrote a short piece yesterday about impeachment. In short, I believe the dialog in the media is skewed; it assumes that just one political party should hold the executive branch accountable for possible illegality and corruption. That's not what the Constitution says. It's the Congress, not "the Democrats", that hold that vital responsibility.

If you're interested in my short take on it, I've posted it on Medium. It's behind a small paywall, but here's the "friend link" that should allow anyone to see it.
