Impeaching Donald Trump will not solve American democracy’s problems – Stuff

United States president Donald Trump easily survived an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives on Wednesday (Thursday NZ Time). However, in light of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s decision to plead guilty and cooperate with the Russia probe, Trump’s days in office may be numbered.

Removing Trump from office – if possible, as the process to impeach and then remove is tricky – would probably be a good thing given the ignominious start he has made as America’s 45th president. He is clearly not up to the job as his first year in office has been one egregious faux pas after another. However, removing Trump from power would not represent any sort of a “win” for American democracy.
