Impeach President Donald Trump | Philadelphia Inquirer Editorial Board

The impeachment investigation has been an attempt to get to the truth about the president’s abuse of power. One career civil servant after another has testified to the same facts confirming the whistle-blower complaint that triggered this investigation. Those facts have not been disputed, even by most of the president’s defenders.

That ensures that the shocking language describing Trump’s actions — “high crimes and misdemeanors,” “threat to national security,” and “clear and present danger” — are not partisan weapons.

And that is why we endorse a vote to impeach the president. While his removal from office is unlikely, his crimes against the country, and the Constitution, warrant that outcome.

The Houston Astros’ denial just made a bad situation worse

Domestic violence is a scourge, one that has existed for too long because people are unwilling to hold accountable not only those who perpetrate it but those who look past it. That Brandon Taubman happened to say what he said now is sadly fitting. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
