It seems to be an important word. I've missed out on using it for so many years and now there's so much impugning going around, it seems only fair I shall make effective use of it.
gerund or present participle: impugning
- dispute the truth, validity, or honesty of (a statement or motive); call into question.
"the father does not impugn her capacity as a good mother" that doesn't sound right, let's reverse, "The mother does not impugn his capacity as a good father". Better.
call into question, challenge, question, dispute, query, take issue with
"Are you impugning my judgment?"
I am indeed impugning the judgment of a lot of people these days.
