As most of us know by now, Donald Trump is still determined to be a glorified Twitter troll even though he is now in the White House. It turns out he’s doing his trolling from an unsecured Android phone.
This is no longer a laughing matter, folks. After all, we know that Trump was told—not asked—to swap out his precious Galaxy for an encrypted, Secret Service-approved device. But we first found out that wasn’t the case when CNBC’s Steve Kopack noticed two Trump tweets were coming from Twitter for Android.
So we have a president continuing to use an unsecured phone despite being made well aware of the risks. This is light years worse than Hillary’s email server. While there is no evidence that Hillary knowingly mishandled classified information, Trump is willfully putting national security at risk every time he uses that phone.
Simply put, Trump is disregarding his oath to the Constitution every time he fires off a tweet. There are already efforts to impeach him for violating the Emoluments Clause. Well, add another potential article of impeachment to the list. If I were writing it, it would go something like this:
In his conduct while president of the United States, Donald John Trump, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, did willfully and knowingly continue to use an unencrypted and unsecure mobile phone despite being informed that such usage endangered the security of the United States.
In doing this, Donald John Trump has undermined the integrity of his office, brought disrepute upon the presidency and the United States, has betrayed his trust as president, and has acted in a manner grossly derelict of his duty to protect the nation, to the manifest injury of the United States.
Wherefore, by such conduct, Donald John Trump warrants impeachment of trial, and removal from office.
