There's a lot to celebrate this time of year—in addition to impeachment! Take time to enjoy a lovely Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa...

Take the Win
This past week made it official—Donald Trump has been impeached. Whatever happens when the process moves to the Senate, the facts are out and the vote is in. As Lili Loofbourow wrote in Slate, impeachment IS a big deal: justice is being done to a president who refuses to be held accountable.
Even a major evangelical magazine has called for his removal. Happy Hanukkah, everyone! It’s a holiday miracle!
