Swift Impeachment Trial and Acquittal Coming Up
The Trump impeachment trial starts Tuesday. It rates to be a swift one.
The Hill reports McConnell Proposes Compressed Schedule for Impeachment Trial.
With Collins on board, this is a done deal.
Protests and howls will ensue.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer
March for Truth?
Does either side want the "Truth"?
Regardless of what you you think the "truth" might be, Trump is going to be acquitted.
My personal opinion, which does not matter one iota, is that Impeachment was at best a stretch to begin with.
I have commented before that I do not believe Trump committed crimes worthy of being removed from office.
There's a fine line between questionable political moves and removal from office. And some might debate the word "questionable".
Regardless, it was 99% clear from the beginning that Trump would never be removed from office.
The irony in this charade game is that it is not even clear if removing Trump from office would help the Democrats.
Consider the fact that If Trump were removed from office, Republicans would put up a different candidate, most likely not not necessarily, vice president Mike Pence.
Instead of having a lightning rod, namely Trump, to campaign against, it would be someone else.
Curiously, a quick acquittal accompanied with protests is actually in the Democrat's best interests.
The Democrats will howl for months about how "unjust" this all is.
Some independants will believe it. At this point, that is all that matters.
