The Senate decided to take a break from the rigors of doing nothing and give the Senators the weekend to run back for their infusion of corporate cash from the masters they serve.
With that said I have a couple of thoughts…..
One, I agree with mot of the so-called conservs that it is a sham…..I mean a trial with no witnesses….now that is something many criminal has desired in the past…..maybe now they will get their wants.
The House made their case….like the outcome or not….it was based on facts and evidence and witnesses….like them or not……but the defense has been something out of a Greek comedy.
The Senate impeachment trial playing out in Washington, D.C., is a history-making event, not just because it is only the third time that the Senate has ever been asked to formally consider removing a president, but also because it showcases, in stunning terms, the hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy of the Republican Party. It would be laughable, if it weren’t so tragic, to watch defenders of President Donald Trump tying themselves into knots in attempting to prove his innocence. They are forced to resort to constant contradictions of their own past statements—and of one another—at every turn, because there is no other way to defend Trump’s actions.
Chief among the embarrassing discrepancies on display is how Trump’s backers approached the 1999 impeachment of President Bill Clinton compared with their handling of Trump’s trial today. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who may be the single most powerful enabler of Trump’s impunity with his assurances of being in lockstep with the White House, said this about the president during a closed-door testimony at Clinton’s Senate impeachment trial:
This opens the door for an unscrupulous politician to rape and pillage the nation….you know kinda like those third world politicians that you condemn.
I know they won’t but the GOP needs to be reminded of their actions this year and the blind eye they turn to corruption and criminal activity.
But I know if anyone can spin this into something positive and vote getting it is the toads in the GOP.
