Character is manifested by actions. We all leave a trail of decisions behind us and by those decisions is our character known. Martha McSally has made quite a few hard decisions. She chose to become an Air Force pilot. She chose to fly in combat, even though women were banned from doing so at the time. She chose to file a lawsuit against the Pentagon, putting her career on the line, to fight against rules that required our servicewomen in Saudi Arabia to demean themselves by wearing abayas as though they were ashamed of their faces! And she won!

Suing the president or, as we call it, “impeachment lite.” So why is the House suing the president? First, you understand the House is made up of lawyers and suing is what lawyers do. Secondly, it is because they know they cannot impeach him. The last time the Republicans tried to impeach a Democrat president, the press crucified them. That Democrat went on to be disbarred from the practice of law for lying to a Grand Jury and then, for no reason intelligent people could ever understand, became the darling of the Democrat party. Thirdly, even if they were successful with articles of impeachment, that would leave us with what has been identified as “impeachment insurance,” Joe Biden. So they are left with only this attempt to embarrass the president.
