Trump-Ukraine: House Memorandum validates the impeachment, but the Republicans will not take down their own
There is no need to dig deep in the United States House of Representatives Memorandum on the Impeachment of Donald J. Trump. The President of the United States, which was publicly dropped yesterday on the 18th January 2020. This has been a slow train coming, but a needed one.
This report put anything in perspective and shows the need for the impeachment. The Memorandum of the framers and the ones who written the two articles of impeachment makes all sense. We have known this, but its put collectively together. Trump knows this, but trying to propagandise it.
President Trump and his administration has acted swiftly to ensure the U.S. House of Representatives couldn’t do their duty with congressional oversight. Trump knows this and the lack of openness, transparency and acting as it should in regard to Congress. The President and his administration didn’t do that. It talked big-game, but stonewalled it. Tried to do everything it could to stop the investigation and find the evidence of the wrong-doing. Also, not letting vital persons testify and misuse the power he had.
What the Memorandum states is what the Senate should do. The Majority Senate, which is based of inner-party of Republicans. The supposed “Law and Order” party, the strong constitutional based and founding father loving party. However, that is only in elections that matter, but they are above the laws and statutes themselves. That is atleast how it seems from afar.
Because, even with the plea, the show of congressional oversight, the rights to impeach and the rights to subpoena the President. Seems like this Presidency couldn’t care less, and he couldn’t care less for foreign interference in elections for his gain. That is seemingly okay in his party and they are all for using all tools for victory. They will sell Montana, Idaho and the Department of Justice to Russians, if they could. That is how it seems.
However, the Senate can show that this is wrong and that they care. I don’t expect it. I expect that they vindicate and accept this. They don’t want this humiliation ahead of 2020 elections. They will trade away moments of power, instead of valuing rule of law and justice. They rather want the office and secure their future. It is more important to stand by Trump, than actually caring about the Constitution.
That the President can misuse power, abuse his power and threatening the up-coming elections. This is what the Senate can address, as the House has already done their bid and has the Memorandum as a proof of their findings. We cannot expect magic, as his fellow bed-mates run the Senate. If they were loyal to their station and Republic. They might have served justice and seen blood. Nevertheless, the result might be just hogwash. They will just thwart the whole thing and seal their misgivings. If Trump is guilty, so is the rest of the party too. Because, they let him and gave way to his whims. They all let him, but also was water-boys for him. These people can either show that the truth matters and that the Republic matters more than person.
However, don’t expect that dance. Expect that the politics matter more. The only way these Republican’s will be henchmen to their own. Is if their own seats, their own livelihoods and their reputation is for sale. If they can themselves be in legal jeopardy or even fall. Than, they might do something. But this memorandum will not seal the fate of the Presidency.
No, only if the Senators fears the elections of 2020 and think they can escape. If they don’t, they will go along and accept being puppets of the President and his foreign backers. Because, he uses all means to win. The President doesn’t care, as long as he “wins”. He doesn’t care about the laws, constitution or protocol. What matters is him and his cause. The Republic is the second fiddle.
Now, we can soon see if the Republicans in the Senate cares about their integrity, the values of the constitutional norms or even due process. Don’t expect it. Really don’t expect it. Since, they haven’t cared with the Russian Probe and neither this Ukrainian scandal. They have done whatever they can to spoil it like bad TV-Hosts on Fox News. Therefore, Trump might be saved, but his legacy is tarnished. Because we all know what he does and how he operates. Nothing matters, except for his own ass. Peace.
