Is It An Impeachment Trial, Or Guilt By Proclamation?
Let me see if I have this impeachment business right. The process calls for the House to develop a case for impeachment against the president, and then the House presents the “evidence” they have gathered to the Senate, and when the full case against the president and all “evidence” has been presented to the Senate, the Senators vote to convict or to not convict. Is that about it?
If the statement above is correct then how can Senators, and even some Republican Senators, have already decided to convict? How can anyone be ready to convict when no trial has been held yet? From all I’ve heard and seen, the House Democrats are basing their entire case against President Trump on hate of him and his policies and the desire of swamp-dwellers to get rid of a non-swamper who has done amazing things in his four short years in office and only wants to serve the American citizens and not his own selfish political career.
Having heard the House Democrats present their weak-to-nonexistent-case on TV today, they have only hate for Donald Trump to present and no real evidence of any wrong-doing on his part, and they have no evidence to offer that would back up a case that Trump incited an attack on the Capitol.
In a real trial where innocence was assumed, the jury would be told to ignore anything they’ve heard about the case at hand, and some jurors are even excused from hearing the trial if they’ve already made up their minds as to innocence or guilt. Knowing the Democrats as well as any thinking American does, we know that the only evidence they’ll present is prejudice and hate for a successful opponent, and that’s no case for impeachment.
The impeachment thing is a farce and an embarrassment for our nation. Since the first day Donald Trump came down the escalator, he’s been attacked literally every day for four years by the hate-filled, big-government Democrats, and this is just a continuation of those attacks and that hate. And the fool Democrats even want to take their attacks to Trump after he’s left office! Shame on Democrats for their four-year-long rage and hate at Donald Trump, and shame on Republicans for their go-along-to-get-along scheme to get back to a cozy relationship with the leftist power structure in Washington and to separate themselves from a great president. This is a dark day for America.
