Trump ‘Acquitted’ by Senate Republicans in Sham Impeachment Trial

Trump Impeachment Trial, Refuses To Convict

Today marks a dark day in American history where a partisan senate “acquitted”, or more accurately “refused to convict” on both articles of impeachment, sent over from the House of Representatives, despite the avalanche of evidence from the House inquiry before the turn of the decade.

The House Democrats have a lot to answer for as well, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi failed to send articles of impeachment for Trump’s actual crimes, using the office of the President to withhold funds, then the quid pro quo, withholding the congressionally approved funds to get the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky to announce an investigation into Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, to benefit Trump’s re-election when he believed that former VP, Joe Biden was going to be his challenger in 2020.

Not to mention Pelosi’s failure to add articles for emoluments violations and the half dozen impeachable offenses in the Mueller report. Which, I believe was a deliberate action as Pelosi is weak and did not want to impeach Trump, she said many times before the Ukraine incident, that the voters should decide.

The lack of specificity in the articles of impeachment that were sent to the Senate allowed the Republicans a way out as there were no specific crimes listed. Abuse of power and obstruction of Congress is incredibly vague. The Senate Republicans are a national disgrace, firstly, not allowing witnesses and documents to be included in the, what we laughingly call, Senate trial, then voting down party lines, save, Mitt Romney, who voted to remove the President for abuse of power, to acquit President Trump.

So the vote went as expected, ARTICLE I: ABUSE OF POWER, 52 – 48 down party lines, except for Romney, who joined Democrats in voting for removal. And ARTICLE II: OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS, 53 – 47, with all Republicans voting not guilty. What does this mean? the Senate says Presidents are above the law.

Before the Trump era, Republicans at least tried to hide their corruption, now they basically say, yes, we’re corrupt, what are you going to do about it? Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell openly said he was working with The White House on the impeachment trial. In what world does a juror, which is what Senators are supposed to be, collude with the defendant? And, this sham trial, goes to show that Congress doesn’t represent the people, they represent their own interests and their donor’s interests.

So, we are back to what Nancy Pelosi wanted, for the voters to decide. Twenty Republicans are up for reelection in the 2020 election year, the people need to make their voices clear, “we will not allow Senators to actively cover up President Trump’s criminality”. The following Senators are up for reelection;

  • Martha McSally (AZ)
  • Cory Gardner (CO)
  • Kelly Loeffler (GA)
  • David Perdue (GA)
  • Joni Ernst (IA)
  • Mitch McConnell (KY)
  • Susan Collins (ME)
  • Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS)
  • Steve Daines (MT)
  • Thom Tillis (NC)
  • John Cornyn (TX)
  • Dan Sullivan (AK)
  • Tom Cotton (AR)
  • Jim Risch (ID)
  • Bill Cassidy (LA)
  • Ben Sasse (NE)
  • Jim Inhofe (OK)
  • Lindsey Graham (SC)
  • Mike Rounds (SD)
  • Shelley Capito (WV)

I truly hope, for the sake of all Americans, even the ones that vote Republican, against their own interests, that we can flip the Senate blue, with a good majority, else, should we have a President Sanders, nothing will get done, just like the Obama presidency where Leader McConnell and his band of criminals obstructed the president, going as far as blocking Obama’s Supreme Court pick for a whole year.
