The founders of this country warned against a single party impeachment because they feared it would bitterly, and perhaps irreparably, divide our nation. This risk was openly acknowledged in years past by the very Democrats who are leading the single party impeachment charade today. Our radical liberal colleagues have vowed to impeach President Donald J. Trump since the day of his election, they have desperately created a fraudulent, unprecedented process to pursue that goal, and now they are pulling the trigger on what was described by the Minority’s expert witness in our House Judiciary Committee as ‘the shortest proceeding, with the thinnest evidentiary record, and the narrowest grounds ever used to impeach a president.’” This is impeachment a sham, and here is why.
A QUICK CRITIQUE OF THE IMPEACHMENT SHAM
Trump has not commited one act that would call for Impeachment however Obama commited many acts that should have got him Impeached by these rotten Democrats choose to ignore the whole thing,Frankly its them who should all me removed from Office
Democrats have established the precedent that all that is required for impeachment is a majority in the House and the will to lie. Lord help us if this becomes common.
The outcome was so predictable and the evidence so weak and ridiculous that Democrats were watching GOLF during the hearings.
Yeah… THAT solemn and necessary.
It’s a sham because republicans have become the obedient tools of Donald Trump and betrayers of the Constitution.
McConnell: ‘No chance’ Trump will be removed from office
@Greg: Donald Trump is the President of the United States of America and, in addition to being the director of foreign policy (making your impeachment garbage) he is also the leader of the country and due respect and obedience. What he has said to McConnell is that he wants a full trial with witnesses, testimony, evidence and exposure. THAT’S what Democrats in the House have fought desperately to avoid. What YOU and Democrats want is a quick dismissal of the ridiculous stupidity so you can claim Republicans just voted party line. No, scooter…. Republicans are going to PROVE your impeachment was nothing but a ploy to keep Democrat corruption covered up.
Better begin planning your exit strategy. AOC and forced the destruction of your party.
You haven’t got a clue about what’s seriously wrong with McConnell’s admission, have you?
Do you really believe the Founders intended for a president to be able to take control of his own impeachment trial, or that the outcome of the trial should be dictated before the trial is conducted? If so, what’s the point of the constitutional process?
Is exactly what happened, now there are articles Mc Connell is not going to allow the goal posts to be moved. All evidence will be shared and Witnesses wont be allowed to be hidden or tampered with.
A carefully methodical defense will be prepared, I dont expect much executive privilege will be tried cause the President did nothing wrong.
They wont be allowed to put in evidence the hearsay of opinion news articles where the information in the article comes from the same liars that are holding the hearings circular BS.
So yeah dont say I dont understand, I simply refuse to accept your viewpoint.
Do you believe the Founders intended for secret impeachment hearings to be held in the basement of the Capitol building?
Perhaps you would like to explain why Schiff-for-brains has released every testimony obtained in his secret hearings but one, the IG Atkinson? What is Schiff-for-brains hiding?
Will that include the State Department documents that Trump locked down in response to House subpoenas, and the thirteen witnesses that illegally ignored subpoenas pursuant to White House instructions? Will Rudy Giuliani and John Bolton testify under oath?
I’ll believe it when I see it. Because then the cat would be out of the bag.
Any sessions involving discussion of classified information would necessarily be closed meetings. There were plenty of televised hearings, and they would have gone on far longer if thirteen central witnesses with direct insider knowledge of Trump’s Ukraine chicanery hadn’t illegally defied congressional subpoenas and refused to testify.
Do you believe the House impeachment vote should have occurred around midnight under the cover of darkness, or should it be done in the full light of day with the public watching? Rep. Collins certainly lost it when Nadler unexpectedly prevented that maneuver.
You will believe what ever your boob tube tells you to believe, Ill accept the Mueller report, no russian collusion. HA
The IG report says it was a good investigation. HA
Your substitute for logic and truth
Grab the headline or the title of an article, make up your mind about how you “feel,” and ignore everything else.
Delores is impeachment.
@Greg: The President has the right to object to the subpoenas. The Democrats can take him to court. They were in too much of a hurry, so they just whined and cried about it.
@Deplorable Me: The dems with their never before opened pocket constitutions screeching they had sole power, they decide what evidence to use, the bile rising. One sentence, twisted abused context. These people are puffed up, empty souless, blind, deaf.
Well beyond our pity.
The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.
We can not recall or have any recourse of representatives that go rouge except at time of the election.
Trump said he’d drain the swamp…and that is what he’s doing. This impeachment…and all the “analysts” at CNN who used to work for the deep state adding their own stories…is the swamp fighting back, the gators if you will.
You’re part of the swamp too, and on your way to becoming a pair of boots, a belt, and a hat.
Trump is the damn swamp. People are going to look back on this chapter of American history and think his supporters must have been totally out of their minds. I wouldn’t argue with that assessment.
The expected reactions here to McConnell’s admission of abusing his powers to rig the impeachment outcome is yet another example of what I’ve been saying for some time. It just doesn’t matter.
When it comes to protecting Trump, from anything, even to the point that McConnell completely and blatantly promised he would disregard the oath he will take under Article 1, Section 3 of the Constitution, anything is fair game. Regardless of how illegal, corrupt, and in defiance of the constitution, Trump is placed above the law by his supporters, on anything and everything. Article 1, Section 3 clearly delineates:
So Moscow Mitch is promising to disregard his oath to do impartial justice. And per the Trump loyalist, this is perfectly acceptable.
There is no crime that Trump could commit, no scenario, that would change this.
@Greg: Yes as we look at the nuts in powdered wigs risking everything against the largest most powerful army on the planet at that time, they were insane! Rebels, radicals no king? UNHEARD OF!
There is only 1 constitution, our interpretation only good if it suits your goals but a different interpretation should it not.
No we will not accept the mental and monetary chains you beg for. The fear and shivering in ignorance and silence you demand.
Kiss our asses.
The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
That’s like the presiding juror publicly announcing before the beginning of a court trial that he and a majority of jurors are coordinating all of their efforts with the defendant’s attorney, are in total alignment with the attorney, and that there’s no possibility that the defendant can be found guilty.
Do you not see a serious problem? This is how you break an important constitutional safeguard. It’s how you get leaders whose powers are no longer limited by constitutional law. Once done, you don’t put the genie back in the bottle.
@Ronald J. Ward: Sit down shut up and listen to the feminists that are the bulk of your resistance. Men are nothing ,reviled, hated “toxic male privilege” . Get your collar on and beg their forgiveness. Hand them your testicles if you were born with any at all. Dress in vagina costumes and wear the poorly knitted pink hat, carry the sign she grants you permission to carry. You can be replaced by a 1/2 dozen cats anytime. Count yourself lucky she allows you to clean the box.
@Ronald J. Ward: IF your rendition of what you think you can convince people to believe you think was even true, I would say, “So, what?” The Democrats in the House did exactly what you are accusing McConnell of doing before he even does it but you were happy with that; worse, in fact. For, they suppressed evidence and testimony; McConnell is pledging to ALLOW evidence and testimony.
To a Democrat, that’s like throwing water on a vampire.
Interesting, perhaps the Democrats should not have fashioned the bottle and the rules to open it.
Did you think we would abide by our norms? That we could not be pushed beyond our limits? Your side began a civil war this is modern cold civil war.
Your leaders have made a grave mistake underestimating how far we will go.
If you think the IG report was embarrassing you havent seen anything yet.
Supreme Court confirms the President has the right to contest Congressional subpoenas
How about the genie that all a party needs is a majority in the House and the will to LIE in order to run an impeachment scam? Are you satisfied that these spoiled little children masquerading as Representatives have abused their power to this extent? Pelosi ADMITS they have been working on impeachment since Trump was elected. Most of the House Judiciary Democrats voted for impeachment BEFORE anything about the Ukrainian call was known, PROVING they have been hell-bent on impeachment, only searching for a premise. Now, because their time is running out, they decided to move forward even WITHOUT a premise. Totally anti-American. ANYONE supporting this impeachment is anti-American, and that has nothing to do with support for Trump; it has to do with a willingness to ignore all the principles that makes this nation great and unique to seize power.
My obsessive stalker has a way of putting credence in my arguments. Exactly as I said, so what? The Dems did it too so therefore it’s justified for the Rs. ?
So if a Trump did murder someone, it would again be “so what? The dems murder babies so he is therefore exonerated “ or, some other kitchen sink nonsense of an excuse. It just doesn’t matter what Trump says or does.
I’m a bit surprised that republicans have sold their souls and handed over their cojones to a self-aggrandizing, porn-star humping draft dodger in return for permanent tax cuts for billionaires, millionaires, and giant corporations that are driving a million-million-dollar-per-year deficit. But as time goes on, I find that fewer and fewer things surprise me.
@Ronald J. Ward: No, not “Dems did it too”… Dems DID IT, McConnell did not. Perhaps you misinterpreted what Soros told you to say (who could help Nazis take his own people to death camps and you would still support), but impeachment hasn’t reached the Senate yet.
Nope. Because murder, like what Hillary committed in Benghazi or Obama and Holder in Fast and Furious, is wrong. Yet, you still support Obama, Holder and Hillary. Gosh, talk about the irony. Or, is that hypocrisy? Of course you are on record of stating that even though Bill Clinton committed sexual assault and lied about it, you still supported him. So, I guess it’s just more of the same.
And, LOOK! Once again you lie. YOU stalk ME. I post and here comes yapping little AJ. You just HAVE to be near me, hanging on my every word.
@Greg: Well, when you are willfully ignorant, you might believe anything.
From The Hill, January 2, 2020 – Senators, keep your oaths (‘so help you God’)
If they don’t, they will become oath breakers. The O in GOP will have a new meaning.
@Greg: Their oath is to support the Constitution, not use impeachment as a cheap political weapon.
