The case against Donald Trump was made by Adam Schiff and the other Impeachment Managers.
Schiff Crushes All GOP Talking Points
Adam Schiff during House Impeachment debate summed up the case against President Trump, saying that “when a man unprincipled in private life, desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper, possessed of considerable talents, having the advantage of military habits, despotic in his ordinary, demeanor, known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty-which such a man is seen to mount the hobbyhorse of popularity to join in the cry of danger to liberty to take every opportunity of embarrassing the general government and bringing it under suspicion, to flatter and fall, in with all the nonsense of the zealots of the day, it may justly be supported that his object is to throw thing into confusion that he may ride the storm and direct the whirlwind.
Those words, originally spoken by Alexander Hamilton in 1792, are a “perfect description of the present danger emanating from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,”, according to Schiff.
Conviction And Removal Of Trump
Adam Schiff said, President Trump’s alleged misconduct can’t be proven at the ballot box only through his impeachment.
“If not remedied by his conviction in the senate and removal from office, President Trump’s abuse of his office and obstruction of congress will permanently alter the balance of power among the branches of government, “, Schiff said.
Also Schiff said, “Using the powers of the presidency to cheat in an election.”,
“For precisely this reason, the president’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won, “, Schiff said.
“The President has shown he believes he is above the law and scornful of constraint,”, per Schiff.
Senate To Deny Witnesses
The most exciting day in Donald Trump’s Impeachment Trial in The Senate, with Republican leaders likely to muster enough votes to block witnesses and rapidly move to acquit the president. This way President Trump’s commercial or Fox interview, claiming total exoneration. The American people know that this outcome is rigged and Trump will not be fully exonerated in the eyes of Americans.
The decision late Thursday night by Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, a Republican who had been considered a potential supporter of testimony, to vote against new evidence largely dashed Democrats hopes of prevailing.
“We took another big step towards the president’s acquittal in the Senate today, and look forward to completing this impeachment process as soon as possible,”, chief White House Congressional liaison Eric Ueland said late Thursday.
Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski from Alaska said that she is still not sure if she will vote for witnesses and that she will make her decision on 01/31/2020.
The Republican Senators, Susan Collins and Mitt Romney have already voted for witnesses with Romney saying he does want to hear from John Bolton.
What Heroes Do We Have In The Political Arena Today
Great movements, countries, moments and achievements are marked by heroic individuals, their heroism appears in many forms and is not unique to any sex, race, region, or occupation. If we lack heroes today in our political life, perhaps it’s because we no longer celebrate as we once did the values that make a hero-values like uncompromising honesty, boundless courage, unflinching, responsibility, uncommon vision, steadfast self-discipline and compassion that springs from one’s own heart rather than from another person’s wallet.
No matter where you may be on the political spectrum, you would probably say that you want men and women in government to be honest, humble, fair, wise, independent, responsible, in corrupt, mindful of the future and respectful of others. But these things are often in direct conflict with the sort of concentration of power and money that attracts the corruptible and the already-corrupt.
Bolton’s New Information
A new Bolton bombshell as the senate appears increasingly likely to block John Bolton and other witnesses from testifying in President Trump’s Impeachment Trial, a new report suggests Trump was directly pushing for Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden and his son Hunter, much earlier than previously known.
Bolton’s latest claims outline Trump’s earliest known attempt to coerce Ukraine into announcing investigations into Biden. This new account further en snarls acting White House Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, who despite having a direct role in Ukraine has been silent during Trump’s imploding impeachment crisis. His statement also drags Pat Cipollone, a member of Trump’s impeachment defense, into the mix.
Adam Schiff has presented a case against Donald Trump (Impeachment Trial In Progress) to be an air tight case for abuse of power and obstruction of congress. Schiff and the other six managers for the house were missing one thing which is to have Bolton, Mulvaney, and two other witnesses who have direct contact with President Trump. At least Bolton is willing to testify (if subpoenaed) in the senate, however as I am writing this, it looks like the republican senators accept for Romney and Collins are going to vote NO on witnesses.
Where are our political heroes today, well it looks like we have none in the senate from the right (Republicans) and we have Adam Schiff and his team who have brought an overwhelming case against Trump, it feels like we have these few heroes and the Democrats in the senate who are trying to talk to their peers on the right, that the case is overwhelming and at least vote for witnesses if you are not convinced of his guilt yet. The out cry for witnesses is going viral on twitter, trending last time I looked 92,000 people asking for witnesses with #WeWantWitnesses, this is amazing and the corruption of these republican senators is way deeper than anyone knows and it will come out.
Adam Schiff, and the other six house managers are the heroes right now, they went forward with this impeachment inquiry and subsequent trial, with criticism from Fox News, and allies of President Trump, let alone from Trump himself for months now. Just wrong, wrong, wrong.
