Part I Ethics of an Impeachment Trial Reminder: This is not a partisan exercise; meaning it does not matter what your political leanings or beliefs are – Republican, Democrat, Independent, or otherwise. Our ultimate goal in this course is to be able to understand and apply the ethical theories we study throughout this course. Question: The Impeachment Trial of former President, Donald Trump, provides us with a unique opportunity to practice objective, non-biased observation; ultimately, forming an informed opinion based upon rational thought and critical reasoning, by applying our ethical analysis. Now that you have watched the trial, please explain the moral correctness (or lack thereof) of the Opening Arguments made during the trail. Feel free to discuss anything else, including the final outcome of no conviction, but with more than a bi-partisan majority voting in favor of conviction. Your responses must include the use of each of the four ethical theories that we have discussed in this course – Utilitarianism, Deontology, Virtue theory, and the Ethic of Care. (1-2 page minimum response required) Note: You will be graded solely based upon your analysis and NOT on your conclusions, which you may or may not even believe; that’s your personal business.
