To the surprise of nobody, Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer seems determined to press ahead with a trial on the unprecedented, most likely unconstitutional impeachment of former President Trump.
He’s insisting that you can impeach someone who’s no longer in office, even though impeachment exists as an action to remove someone from office. It’s possible that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts might refuse even to preside over it, if he cares about the Constitution (sadly, that’s an open question.) Here are some more details on the confusing issues that are only now being debated because in all of American history, this is the first time Congress has ever pulled anything this stupid, at least in the impeachment field.
Sen. Mitch McConnell is pressing to delay any trial to February, to give Trump’s people a fair chance to mount a defense, something they didn’t get to do during the rushed House vote, which is another reason why this is totally bogus (another is that he was impeached for allegedly inciting the Capitol riot with a speech that a federal investigation has already proven took place after the rioters had already started planning their assault.) Schumer will likely oppose that, since trying to impeach a President who’s been gone for five weeks might look five times dumber than trying to impeach one who’s been gone for one week.
Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas tried (probably futilely) to inject some common sense into the Senate proceedings by pointing out, “We won’t be doing any confirmations, we won’t be doing any COVID-19 relief, we won’t be doing anything else other than impeaching a person who’s not even President.” Unfortunately, we live in a time when trying to inject common sense into the Senate is like trying to give a vaccination shot to a Pet Rock.

Thank you bushels, Gov Huckabee. You and Sarah are beacons of light in a darkening storm. Thank you for your common sense, your backbone of fighting for what is right (and constitutional). Thank you for the Bible verses at the end of all your posts.
Wishes for a tranquil day, from a (dual citizen - USA/Belize) reader in Belize

At least schumer entertained all of us and President Trump with his articulate use of the English language, “President Trump incited an erection” at the capitol. We should repeat this over and over to our delight! One of the few things about this heinous waste of time that we can smile about??
