“It is the ordinary stuff of politics that we disagree over policy and personnel. We have well established tools for trying to overcome those disagreements and make collective disagreements and make collective decisions about how best to advance our common interests. We have elections; we deliberate; we negotiate; we compromise…

…Extreme political polarization and divided government can create temptations to use the impeachment power as just another way to outmaneuver one’s opponents. We should NOT normalize the impeachment power in that way.

…Impeachments are not about law and order; they are a constitutional solution to a political problem.” (Emphasis added) – What Is the Impeachment Power For? by Keith Whittington for the Library of Law and Liberty May 22, 2017.
