Chuck Grassley on Impeachment Then
“The true tragedy in this case is the collapse of the President’s moral authority. He undermined himself when he wagged his finger and lied to our people on national television, denying that relationship with Ms. Lewinsky. That did more damage to his credibility than any other single act. There was no better reason than that for the resignation of the President… The Presidency is not merely an administrative office; it is preeminently a place of moral leadership…
“Another abuse of power: The full powers of the White House were on lease to stonewall the process and to attack the credibility of those who investigated him. This White House has perfected the art of stonewalling around the truth. I fear that future White Houses will learn much from these experts and will refine and improve their own truth-fighting arsenals. Truth and openness will be casualties.
“Last, there is the issue of the poor example the President’s actions serve for the Nation, especially for our youth. Is it now OK to lie because the President does it?… The American people have a right to expect their President to be completely truthful, as they can expect you and me to be completely truthful.”

“Unfortunately, instead of waiting to learn the facts by reviewing that transcript or hearing from the whistleblower, Democrats have moved straight to starting the impeachment process. Democrats have been searching for any reason to impeach President Trump since his inauguration because they couldn’t accept the results of the 2016 election.”
