President Donald Trump’s impeachment has been in the headlines for a while now.  

The story began with a whistleblower stepping forward with the complaint that Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter on a call on July 25.  

Some Quinnipiac students believe that there isn’t enough evidence to prove that Trump was guilty of having used his authority for personal or political gains, but they stated that it was worth looking into.  Others don’t seem to think so.

“I believe he has used his authority to advance his own political agenda and what his party wants,” freshman, Genesis Iscoa, said. 

Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into the issue, claiming Trump’s actions to be a “betrayal of national security”. 

On the other hand, Republicans have demanded the whistleblower testify publicly. Some students felt that the whistleblower came forward for his/her personal needs. 

“I think the whistleblower has personal motivations behind whistleblowing,” sophomore, Callum Scott said. “It’s all just kind of speculation until you have somebody who can vouch for the character of the whistleblower, you know the credentials of the whistleblower and you know the source that the whistleblower’s information came from.”

The students hope that further investigation will be done to prove whether or not the president is guilty of the charges against him. They feel there is a need for these investigations as they believe that all humans are equal under the law and that the president is no exception to the rule.
