In early December 2019 U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky said:
“there’s no chance the President’s going to be removed from Office.”
Mitch McConnell is the U.S. Senate majority leader.
So much for impartiality. I am very familiar with the Criminal Justice System in Amerika. Like many who have been observing the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump I found it strange that no witnesses were allowed and the U.S. Senate would thwart the collection and presentation of evidence which clearly shows that Donald J. Trump has been acting more like a Mafia Boss rather than the leader of the most powerful country in the world.
Donald J. Trump has established a clear pattern of orchestrating attacks against his political opponents – he did it to Hillary Clinton and he repeated it again with Joe Biden.
Am I lying? I think not. Mitch McConnell decided long ago that he would take his chances and throw his support behind President Trump – no matter how convincing the evidence or how heinous the crime.
Donald J. Trump needs “Fixers” and “Dirty Tricksters” and “Bag Men” who will do black jobs and also “Wet Work”. Those are very serious allegations.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani replaced Roger Stone and Michael Cohen. The President forgot to read the book on Plausible Deniability. You don’t go on national TV and say you don’t know a person and then that person – Lev Parnas produces photos, videos, and documentation which clearly shows that the President of the United States of America continues to fabricate lies.
Perhaps it is alright – the economy is good isn’t it? So we just pretend like it is ok to send very strange individuals to bully and intimidate our U.S. Ambassadors and Diplomats. Something is very wrong here.
However, I am just a struggling journalist and incarcerated activist. My thoughts, opinions, and words don’t carry much weight with Amerikan citizens. With that said, let’s take a look at the words and comments of U.S. Representative Val Demings – a Democrat from California who is a member of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee.
“The Constitution requires that after Articles of Impeachment pass the House of Representatives, the President must be given a fair trial in the Senate. Senator Mitch McConnell has promised to sabotage that trial and he must recuse himself. No court in the country would allow a member of the jury to also serve as the accused’s Defense Attorney.”
Nevertheless, U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts doesn’t seem to have a problem with McConnell or the absence of witnesses or the decision to not collect nor pursue relevant leads and evidence!
If you ask me, it is not just Donald J. Trump who should be tried for high crimes and misdemeanors.
What truly amazes me is how Hillary Clinton aggressively attacks Bernie Sanders in a recent interview but does not have the same fire and passion in regard to a President whose base continues to chant “Lock her up!”. Does anyone else find that strange?
The Trumps, the Clintons, they both believe that we are all fools – a Tweet here a Tweet there – my re-election is a forgone conclusion thinks Trump. November 2020 will be here much sooner than y ou think and then no matter what happens at this farcical Impeachment Trial, the people will have their say.
Lastly, one last quote from Rep. Demings about “our man” Mitch McConnell:
“The moment Senator McConnell takes the oath of impartiality required by the Constitution he will be in violation of that Oath”.
Dare to struggle, Dare to win. ALL Power to the People. -END
