MCCONNELL SHUMER 3   The Trump Impeachment trial, part II is history.   An insufficient number of Republican US Senators decided to break rank and vote for impeachment. Below is the relevant portion of Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s post vote speech in which he discusses Trump culpability.  He completed the speech explaining his reasons for his not guilty vote, lack of jurisdiction.  The entire post-verdict vote by Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer follows:

The ultimate issue in this impeachment case is whether the president incited insurrection .
As was mentioned yesterday during the trial, to address this issue, you need to answer these three questions:
A. Was violence forseeable?
B. Did he encourage violence?
C. Did he act willfully.

Impeachment of a president can be a horrible thing to waste.

That is, if you are a politician or political party.

TRUMP HELL 5

On June 16, 2015, the future President and his wife rode down the escalator at Trump Tower in New York City and the political world will never be the same. The occasion was the presidential announcement speech of Donald Trump. Previously, Trump had considered running for President in 1988, 2000 and 2012. Each time, the allure of his real estate and media businesses kept Trump away from the race. This time, he felt it was his last chance to run and he seized the opportunity.

Time to play a little game. It’s called, “Hide the Evidence”.

Here’s how you play. First, I'll give you the defenses and excuses. And, then, hopefully, we'll come to our senses.

Now, close your eyes and ears. Quit sniffing around for clues.   The Republicans have been playing this for months. It's so easy, McConnell and gang have got it down to a science.

U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) was the lone Republican in Congress to vote against President Trump in the bogus impeachment hoax. Fortunately, no GOP members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted to approve the two articles of impeachment.

In the U.S. Senate, only Romney voted to convict and remove the President on one article of impeachment. Speaking to his fellow Senators and the nation on Wednesday, Romney said, “The grave question the Constitution tasks senators to answer is whether the President committed an act so extreme and egregious that it rises to the level of a ‘high crime and misdemeanor.' Yes, he did.”

Of course, 95% of Republicans disagree with Romney and his analysis is hopelessly skewed by his personal animosity toward the President. It is not an impeachable offense to make a “perfect” call to a fellow President asking him to help locate missing Democratic National Committee computer servers from the 2016 election and investigate the alleged corruption of a very powerful political family.

ROMNEY MAN 5

Thank God, the Congressional GOP found an honest man.

Today, Mitch Romney defied his party, his president, his future re-election and followed his conscience. He stated that he is a religious man and as such, took his oath as a promise to God to be fair and just. In doing so, he felt the evidence was simply overwhelming to support the impeachment of Donald J. Trump. He said Trump committed an impeachable offense and should be removed.

impeach vote 5

As the nation gets ready for a presidential election, the Democratic Party is in total turmoil. Their 2020 presidential candidates are not exciting voters. There is no Bill Clinton or Barack Obama in the field to generate excitement. The only candidate to create any passion is U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT), practically an octogenarian.

The polls show Sanders leading in Iowa and New Hampshire and he is on the verge of overtaking former Vice President Joe Biden in the national polls. He is leading in fundraising and has the type of dedicated volunteers not found in other campaigns.

FAKECNN 6

U.S. Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) created a firestorm of controversy this week when she called CNN reporter Manu Raju “a liberal hack.” Raju was trying to interview McSally about the upcoming impeachment trial, but the Arizona Senator told him that “I’m not talking to you.”

McSally is a former fighter pilot who certainly knows how to hit targets. In this regard, her comments hit the media target perfectly and were especially appropriate.

Raju and his CNN colleagues are all “liberal hacks.” Other than an occasional token conservative analyst or guest, the entire CNN roster of producers and on-air talent, including all the network’s hosts, is composed of steadfast liberals. Other Republican officeholders should follow McSally’s lead and refuse to appear on CNN. They will never get fair coverage for CNN is a tool of the Democratic Party.

thou impeach 5

Nancy Pelosi has indicated today that the articles of impeachment will be forwarded to the US Senate, next week.

The Mitch McConnell-GOP impeachment show is evolving into an immorality play of near-biblical proportions.  The fate of the nation’s values hinges upon oaths we take and the truths we allow. The Impeachment of Donald Trump trial is less about the future of the 45th President of the  United States, but more about the legacy we leave this nation for future generations.
