The House has impeached President Trump twice now, in a vote of 232-197 — this time based on an out-of-context quote from January 6. And they were so hot-to-trot over it that instead of the usual several days of hearings, they did it in one day (7 hours) – the fastest impeachment in US history, and had absolutely no due process. There is a small kink in their plan: Mitch McConnell refused to issue an emergency session of the Senate until after January 20. Which should make it moot – impeachment is for someone in office and Trump will be a private citizen as of January 20. But…
Trump impeached twice will further divide us
Knowing Democrats and their revenge-seeking ways, they may try to do it anyway just to attempt to prevent Trump from running in 2024. And with the 50-50 split in the Senate, Kamala could be the tie-breaker. Constitutionally it is not correct to “impeach” a private citizen, but Democrats seem to do whatever they want, and Trump impeached twice makes them quiver with pride.
“‘There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.’ Those words are as true today as when Abraham Lincoln spoke them,” Cotton said. “As I said last summer when mob violence gripped our streets, so I say again about the mob violence at our nation’s Capitol last week: those persons responsible should be held accountable in the courts to the full extent of the law.”
“The House has passed an article of impeachment against the president, but the Senate under its rules and precedents cannot start and conclude a fair trial before the president leaves office next week,” he continued. “Under these circumstances, the Senate lacks constitutional authority to conduct impeachment proceedings against a former president. The Founders designed the impeachment process as a way to remove officeholders from public office—not an inquest against private citizens. The Constitution presupposes an office from which an impeached officeholder can be removed.”
“Fidelity to the Constitution must always remain the lodestar for our nation. Last week, I opposed the effort to reject certified electoral votes for the same reason—fidelity to the Constitution—I now oppose impeachment proceedings against a former president,” the statement concluded. “Congress and the executive branch should concentrate entirely for the next week on conducting a safe and orderly transfer of power. After January 20, Congress should get on with the people’s business: improving our vaccination efforts, getting kids back to school, and getting workers back on the job.”Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR
The House Speaker rushed the proceedings, because she claimed that Trump was a “clear and present danger” to America. Which is pure b******.
“At his rally, President Trump urged attendees to ‘peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.’ There was no mention of violence, let alone calls to action,” said Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Pa.), a former Navy prosecutor. “President Donald Trump’s words would not even meet the definition of incitement under criminal statutes.”
“That’s impeachable? That’s called freedom of speech,” Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) said, noting that the president also threatened to oppose Republicans in future elections, including McClintock, who didn’t support objections to slates of electors. “Well, so what? That’s called politics. If we impeached every politician who gave a fiery speech to a crowd of partisans, this Capitol would be deserted.”The Epoch Times
Ten Republicans voted for impeachment: Reps. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), John Katko (R-N.Y.), Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), Fred Upton (R-Mich.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.), Dan Newhouse (R-Wash.), Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio), Tom Rice (R-S.C.), David Valadao (R-Calif.), and Peter Meijer (R-Mich.). Remember their names and keep your wallets closed if they ever ask for money again. They obviously can’t read or hear, but just follow along with Democrats, believing everything they say.
Speaking of something to say, here’s Rick Ferran with a video on this subject:
