Trump-Ukraine: Like Clockwork, the Senate rigged the Impeachment Trial
We knew this could and it did. Senator Majority Leader, the most spineless man of America. Republican Mitch McConnell has decided loyalty towards one man is more important than constitutionalism, rule of law or even honour of office. The Republican Party see it more fit to shield their own, than to follow the codes, the laws and abide to the principals of the Republic. That is reality after today.
The Impeachment Resolution is how to shield an trial, how to not do discovery, get people interrogated, interviewed or even tried. They are not even trying to look into it. Just like a mafia, they are covering it all up. Closing the books, giving a limited time frame, letting it all go and calling for another beer. Maybe with their favourite Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
If there ever was a party for rule of law, it is clearly not the Grand Old Party. They are in it for power and by any means. The ends are more important than the means at this point. Doesn’t matter what the President does nor his associates. Even when plenty of them is either in jail, awaiting sentencing and so-on. His lawyer, his National Security Advisor, his Campaign Manager and so fourth.
Still, the Party will shield this man with a sham trial. A trial so shambolic and insincere. It is taken straight out a dictators playbook. No witness, no evidence or no production of the paper trail. Even a small-frauds case or a Judge Judy episode has more legal backbone than this. The resolution is a farce and a facade. Nothing noble, just mere deception.
McConnell are maybe able to save the fate of Trump. Give him leeway on the case. But his life, his life-work in the Senate will forever be stained by this. He will be remembered as one of the men, who enabled the President, gave way to the President and who sold the Presidency on the altar of Power. Because, that is what they have done.
I’m not American, I’m not a citizen of the United States. But its easy to see what’s happening. The motion is set and the actions are insincere. This a cake-walk. A final dance on the two articles of Impeachment. As the President abused his power with an ally to get dirt on a political opponent. In this regard, Ukraine and stopped military aid as a blackmail to get their will and investigate the son of Joe Biden. That is the whole thing and McConnell will not continue to investigate it properly. Not even try, after Trump has stopped witnesses, not produced documents and so fourth.
The Senate, if they will vote for this and do this. They will be remembered as loyal brigadiers to Trump. That Trump stands above the law. That they allowed him to misuse his office, not follow procedure and heckled an ally for personal gain. They allowed Trump to do that like a Tin-Pot dictator.
That is what the GOP has succumbed too. They are also spineless and worthless men in suits and ties. These people are the empty suits any sort of arrogant need, they don’t stand for anything, but bows to his every whim. That is who they are and that is the display they are giving the world. Peace.
