CHRONICLE 4 I The Lovell Chronicle I October 3, 2019 Here we go agairi - the third impeachment process initiated against a United States President in the last 45 years. Folks old enough well remember how our nation was tom by Richard Nixon's impeachment hearings during the Watergate affair in 1974, leading to his resignation, and by the impeachment pro- cess involving President Clinton in 1998 for perjury and obstruction of justice in the Monica Lewinsky case. He was acquitted by the U.S. Senate in 1999. The decision by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi last week to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Trump was made reluctantly, because the Iongtime speaker knows that the action will once again split an already fractured nation into a divide that may never be healed. Indeed, there is very little positive that can come from an im- peachment proceeding against President Trump. Any action taken by the House will surely be defeated in the Republican controlled Senate, and in the meantime, the process will suck all of the air out of the room. With opposing sides hardened and angry, little or noth- ing will get done by Congress over the next year and a half. There will be no working across the aisle during this process, not that our hyper-partisan elected leaders have worked together very much for years now. House Democrats who have been itching for months to start the process say they are not initiating the action for political reasons, but impeachment is inherently a political process. It's all about politics, and like other issues of this kind, all the subpoenas, investigations and hearings in the world aren't going to sway the most ardent sup- porters of the president in the Senate, where Republicans hold the majority. Many political pundits predict that the impeachment process will YOU KNOW ABOUT VIAGRA, RIGHT?- WELL, THIS IS DIRI KTA ~ '~" IT ENDOWS MEN WITH THE (;>E$1RE TO ASK Guest column 'es O Life does not always cooperate.

As for the rest of us, we will watch the proceedings with a mixture of interest and sadness as any semblance of collaboration evapo- rates. Those who hate Trump will salivate over every sordid detail, and those who support him no matter what will grow ever more an- gnj. The current impeachment process can be summed up in one word: unfortunate. For both sides. This action, no doubt in part spurred on by the president's own pugnacious ' ou're either with me or against me" method of governance, will do nothing but weaken our nation, bring any needed action on myriad issues to a standstill and throw the next 15 months into a quagmire of even greater pos- turing bickering name calling and inaction. If they want him out, wouldn't it be better for Democrats to beat Trump at the ballot box next November?. Perhaps they fear they cannot do so, or need ammunition for the election to come. Or for some, maybe they are standing on principle. One thing is for sure.
