Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration. By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
This week’s provocative question is one that nags at me. And yes, it’s political and I’m really hoping someone — anyone — can enlighten me. So here we go.
Members of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, including his son and son-in-law, met numerous times with influential Russians. The Trump campaign encouraged and welcomed Russian involvement (and interference) in the election. 34 people and three entities associated with the Trump campaign have been indicted on nearly 200 separate criminal charges. Five associates of Trump have been convicted, and another, Roger Stone, is awaiting trial. Trump’s former campaign manager and Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer are in jail for lying to Congress and for various financial crimes.
Further, the Mueller Report documented at least ten instances where Trump committed obstruction of justice, including the firing of former FBI Director Jim Comey. And now Trump has instructed his current and former White House staff to defy congressional subpoenas.
And as icing on the cake, Trump has lied to the American people almost 11,000 times since taking office 2½ years ago.
So here’s my question:
“Do you believe that Donald Trump is an effective American president who should remain in office despite having accepted aid from a foreign adversary (Russia) and having committed obstruction of justice into the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential elections? Do you believe that Trump should or should not be impeached for his actions? Why?”
