“With State Representative Matt Maddock filing legislation to impeach Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the campaign committee driving that effort is applauding what they are calling the first gubernatorial impeachment effort in the state’s history.
Brandon Hall, Chairman of the Campaign to Impeach Gretchen Whitmer, says, “Today’s historic news that State Representative Matt Maddock will introduce an impeachment resolution to address Gretchen Whitmer’s crimes and corruption is tremendously encouraging for families throughout Michigan, especially as another draconian lockdown looms.”
Hall contends, “Despite social media censorship and paid attacks against me by Gretchen Whitmer, despite the Lansing swamp fighting us at every turn, and despite repeated excuses from Republican legislators, impeachment is now moving forward with unprecedented momentum.”
According to respected Michigan political analyst Bill Ballenger, this is the first time in history a Michigan Governor faces an impeachment vote.
Hall argues, “We must move quickly to hold the vote, initiate impeachment hearings that will include subpoenas as well as sworn testimony, and then put Gretchen Whitmer on trial in the Senate.”
The campaign organizer insists, “Justice must be served for, among other things, every family business she has destroyed, for the record amount of drug overdoses and suicides her lockdowns have caused, for her horrendous mismanagement of the unemployment system, for repeatedly violating her own orders, for crony contact tracing contracts to her Democrat friends, for robbing our students out of vital school experiences, and most importantly, for turning our nursing homes into death camps.”
Hall reports that thus far, State Representatives Shane Hernandez, Ryan Berman, Beau LaFave, Mary Whiteford, Daire Rendon, and Lynn Afendoulis, as well as Senators Tom Barrett, Dan Lauwers and Lana Theis have also expressed their support for impeachment hearings. He adds that incoming Representatives Ken Borton, Patrick Outman, and Steve Carra also support an impeachment investigation.
Hall concludes, “I’m looking forward to seeing other legislators rally behind the leadership Matt and others have shown.””
“The Governor did not possess the authority to exercise emergency powers under the EPGA because the act unlawfully delegates legislative power to the executive branch in violation of the Michigan Constitution.”

“And in American politics, in addition to the White House and Congress, there is a class of important actors – the governors of the 50 states.Because of the federal system in the United States, the governor can ignore the White House orders, and the state has its own local government solely, the state can change or even cancel the city, county, school district and other local governments.”
“MinZhi Report China-U.S. relations have changed significantly since 2017.In terms of strategic positioning, authoritative documents such as the U.S. National Security Strategy Report clearly define China as a “strategic adversary” and a “competitor”.
In practical policy, especially since Trump took office, the United States has put full pressure on China in the fields of economy, trade, science and technology, and actively sought to delink china from the economy, humanities, education and other fields.It can be said that China-U.S. relations have undergone a qualitative change.In Washington, the voice stoushei-towardChina seems to have become mainstream and growing momentum.
In the face of such a reality, we need not only to be prepared, but also to deepen our understanding of the United States and prevent miscalculations and the continued deterioration of bilateral relations during this special period of dramatic changes in Sino-US relations.And in American politics, in addition to the White House and Congress, there is a class of important actors – the governors of the 50 states.Because of the federal system in the United States, the governor can ignore the White House orders, and the state has its own local government solely, the state can change or even cancel the city, county, school district and other local governments.”
