Donald J. Trump has become the first POTUS to be impeached twice. While some pundits on both the left and right will claim that the first impeachment was a witch hunt, I disagree, Trump was absolutely guilty of the charges that a formal House inquiry found evidence that he had solicited foreign interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election to help his re-election bid, and then obstructed the inquiry itself by telling his administration officials to ignore subpoenas for documents and testimony.
This is the November 22nd, 2017 broadcast of New Abolitionists Radio. The day before Thanksgiving holiday in the US.
• On this day in 2014 The shooting of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old African-American boy (June 25, 2002 – November 23, 2014), occurred on November 22, in Cleveland, Ohio. Two police officers, 26-year-old Timothy Loehmann and 46-year-old Frank Garmback, responded after receiving a police dispatch call “of a male black sitting on a swing and pointing a gun at people” in a city park. Justice was never done.
• Also on this day in 1963, John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Justice wasn’t done there either.

• Our Rider of the 21st Century Underground Railroad is Kevin Smith who was jailed on a drug charge in New Orleans in 2010. Smith’s case never went to a jury. On Monday, November 13th, 2,832 days after he was locked up, Criminal District Court Judge Tracey Flemings-Davillier ordered Smith’s release, bowing to an appeals court ruling that prosecutors had violated his right to a speedy trial.
