Bill Kristol: U.S. Senate Should Vote to Impeach Trump
Bill Kristol, one of the most acclaimed conservative writers and thinkers in the nation, said that in order for the Republican Party in particular and the nation as a whole to recover from the Trump years, action must be taken to categorically rebuke the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol. That would mean the Senate should vote to convict Trump in the upcoming impeachment hearings, Kristol argued.
Founder of the former The Weekly Standard and current editor-at-large of The Bulwark, Kristol made his remarks Jan. 29 in a Power Pool Zoom chat moderated by former NBC weekend anchor John Seigenthaler, now a partner with the global communications firm Finn Partners. The title of the Zoom chat: “The Republican Party: What Lies Ahead?”
Kristol brings an insider's view to the conversation. For years he has been identified as one of the leaders of the American neoconservative movement. If you have watched broadcast news in the last year, you’ve probably experienced Kristol’s candor, wisdom, and insight. He is a founder and director of the advocacy organization Defending Democracy Together and associated with numerous conservative think tanks. He was a leading Republican voice in opposition to the Trump administration. Many attribute the defeat of President Bill Clinton's health care reform plan to Kristol. He also favors a muscular foreign policy.
