Home Democrats lastly impeached President Trump. Senate Republicans now need to make the Democrats’ victory as Pyrrhic as possible.
This leftist victory is less than a half-hour more youthful than the Trump presidency itself. “The project to impeach President Trump has started,” a Washington Post heading screamed on January 20, 2017, at 12: 19 p.m.– just 19 minutes after Trump took the oath of office.
From Russia! Russia! Russia!, to the Emoluments Stipulation, to tax returns, and finally Ukraine-o-rama, Democrats have tortured Trump and his supporters for the high crime of beating Hillary Clinton for president.
Now, to add insult to impeachment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is resting on the documentation that would activate a Senate trial. This would leave President Trump prosecuted for abuse of power and blockage of Congress, but not able to safeguard himself.
Congress has left for its Christmas break with potential customers for a Senate trial totally in limbo up until a minimum of Jan. 6, 2020– an election year.
” We have actually legislation approved by the Rules Committee that will enable us to choose how we will send over the Articles of Impeachment,” Pelosi said. “We’re not sending it this evening, because it’s hard to identify who the managers will be up until we see the arena in which we will be getting involved.”
That arena is called the U.S. Senate, Nancy. And the Senate– not you– chooses how an impeachment trial will proceed.
Any district attorney who attempted this real-life version of Franz Kafka’s ” The Trial” would invite judicial sanctions.
