There is lots of talk about what the Constitution can and cannot do…..impeachment comes to mind…seems there are some pundits that are defining parts of the Constitution…..and they are WRONG!
It Illustrates just how badly this country needs a good civics program in our schools. personally I think that a civics test should be given before they are allowed to graduate.
Enough bitchin’…… onward……
Trump has said that some Dems are guilty of treason and should be impeached……
President Trump is continuing to fight back against the impeachment inquiry by calling for his critics to be impeached. After calling for Mitt Romney’s impeachment on Saturday—and continuing to hammer him Sunday—the president called for the impeachment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday night, accusing her of treason. “She knew of all of the many Shifty Adam Schiff lies and massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people,” Trump tweeted. “This makes Nervous Nancy every bit as guilty as Liddle’ Adam Schiff for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and even Treason. I guess that means that they, along with all of those that evilly ‘Colluded’ with them, must all be immediately Impeached!”
Then Trump thinks Mitt should also be impeached….
President Trump is calling for U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney’s impeachment — turning the tables on one of his chief Republican critics the day after the Bay State ex-pat slammed Trump’s calls for foreign countries to investigate presidential rival Joe Biden and his family as “appalling.”
“I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!” Trump tweeted Saturday. “#IMPEACHMITTROMNEY.”
For a party that hugs the Constitution every election one would think that they would know what the document says about a couple of things.
First of all…….Member of Congress can’t be impeached, but they can be expelled with a two-thirds vote in the House or Senate.
Let me help the morons out here…..Article One Section 5……Section 5 says that Congress must have a minimum number of members present in order to meet, and that it may set fines for members who do not show up. It says that members may be expelled, that each house must keep a journal to record proceedings and votes, and that neither house can adjourn without the permission of the other.
Then there is the accusations by Trump that Dems are committing treason by their actions…..allow me to help these feckless tools out once again…..
Article 3 Section 3……Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
Once again I write about the ignorance of your president on how the Constitution works.
It seems that they have this list of terms and they pick one to use for the day……yesterday it was “Kangaroo Court”……
Now we either hold to the concept our Founders put down on paper or we throw it in the trash can and let the whims of some deluded dictator wannabe become the law of the land.
Which shall it be?
The one accurate thing said by a GOPer yesterday…he called it a “Clown Show”….a great term to describe the American political process.
