Continuing to beat the impeachment drum

The NY Times is still hammering the impeachment issue:
Yes, Impeaching Trump Was Absolutely Worth It

Five reasons that the work of Congress to hold the president accountable has left democracy and our nation stronger.

By Norman Eisen

Mr. Eisen served as special counsel to the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment of President Trump.
Eisen is Jewish, and has previously worked for Jewish propaganda organizations.
The president’s misconduct has intensified: Having a decorated war hero and impeachment witness, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, marched out of the White House, together with his equally blameless twin brother;
The Vindmans are Jewish also. Is there a pattern here? Eisen says it is misconduct to fire Jews who are openly hostile to administration policy.
I know the gravity of the word alone: impeachment. It is a permanent mark on Mr. Trump and his shameful presidency that will tarnish his name as long as it is remembered. It should, and I believe will, weigh in as Americans decide whether he should continue as our president.
Except that the impeachment was expunged by the Senate.
Take the swirl of events surrounding the sentencing of Roger Stone. The four federal prosecutors who withdrew from the case showed swift, admirable fealty to their principles. The judge who presided over the case, Amy Berman Jackson, and the chief judge of the Federal District Court in Washington, Beryl Howell, also exhibited great integrity by condemning Mr. Trump’s implicit orchestration, with the court levying a tough but fair sentence of over three years.
Actually the judge specifically said in her sentencing order that she agreed with Trump that the recommendation of 7-9 years was excessive.

What's missing from his argument is any criminal conduct by the President. The impeachment was just a big argument that leftist Jews don't like Trump.
