  • San Antonio Express-News: 'If this is not impeachable, nothing is': Congressman Lloyd Doggett on why Trump must be impeached

    Texas District 35 U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett laid out his case on why House lawmakers should impeach President Trump Wednesday. In his speech to the House, Doggett, who represents San Antonio, Austin and San Marcos, said Trump violated his sworn duty to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution by seeking to "violently overthrow the government" with his Jan. 6 speech. Trump told his supporters to "fight like hell, and if you don't fight like hell, you're not going to have a country anymore," which Congress is pointing to as the helping incite a riot at the U.S. Capitol shortly that killed five. House lawmakers are charging Trump with "incitement of insurrection" due to the unprecedented events.

    We all depend upon the United States Postal Service (USPS). Until recently, it has enjoyed broad, bipartisan political support. On Saturday, I expect the House to approve the Delivering for America Act, of which I am a sponsor. This simple, three-page bill, modestly requires USPS to uphold the standards existing last January combined with an appropriation, which the Trump-appointed Board of Governors previously requested to fund postal operations.
