Impeachment: not to be trivialized

October 21, 2019

Andrew C. McCarthy has written perhaps the definitive analysis of impeachment: the reasons the framers included it, the intended uses for it, the serious unintended consequences of playing politics with it, and much more. It should be required reading for all congressional Democrats, but you know they’ll avoid it like the plague --- while enthusiastically infecting our system of government with their own plague of sorts. The only remedy we have for their partisan stupidity is to vote their butts out of office.

The book he wrote dealing with this is called FAITHLESS EXECUTION, which maintains that the system of checks and balances has broken down, “with no repairs on the horizon.” The article at the link needs no embellishment from me. Read it and be wiser.

    As a Trump supporter , i am concerned that mcconnell is an anti Trumper, and that there are several romney( aka pierre delecto) types in the senate that do not have Pres Trump's back.. Where is lindsey graham (we are going to get to the bottom of this fame)? hard to believe that the repub party has so little fight against the corrupt, ruthless dimm party

    The HOUSE will likely pass the resolution of impeachment - The SENATE has the unique opportunity to help DRAIN the SWAMP, and kill the SWAMP CREATURES.
    ...
    Great article by Scott McKay .. "Absolutely, Let’s Have an Impeachment Trial" The House should vote to impeach President Trump and the Senate should start a trial — so the REAL fireworks can begin.

    Dear Governor Huckabee-Mitch McConnell could stop this right now if he wanted to. I am greatly concerned there may be enough republican senators who hate the President, they will convict him of anything the democrats invent to impeach. McConnell has great power to influence senate republicans (denying them seats on select committees that are important to them or threatening to deny them aid when they run for re-election). Any "trial" in the senate legitimizes this impeachment farce by the democrats and republicans need to send the message to Nancy Pelosi this will be DOA!
