Words cannot describe my frustration and my concerns as we approach the so-called Senate trial of President Donald Trump.
I understand politics. I understand the need to protect the president. I don't understand the deliberate destructive behaviors that are being exhibited right now at our nation's capital.
The issues are-- has Donald Trump engaged in activities that justify impeachment and should the higher Congressional body convict and remove him from office.
Nancy Pelosi has indicated today that the articles of impeachment will be forwarded to the US Senate, next week.
The Mitch McConnell-GOP impeachment show is evolving into an immorality play of near-biblical proportions. The fate of the nation’s values hinges upon oaths we take and the truths we allow. The Impeachment of Donald Trump trial is less about the future of the 45th President of the United States, but more about the legacy we leave this nation for future generations.
It’s time to care.
In fact, it’s time to care about facts.
Ever since the House of Representatives impeached Donald Trump, significant information has emerged that, if accurate, blows a major hole in the Republican defense of Trump.
The Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee have approved the two articles of impeachment against President Trump.
Next week, it will be the full house. The writing is on the wall. Next month, the fork turns and Mitch McConnell takes his seat at the front of the impeachment table.
Now, perhaps, it is a time to reflect.
You know it has been a charade, a fraud, a hoax when a side, who has complained non-stop about the impeachment process, has no problem with the upcoming US Senate trial, even knowing that the man in charge is assuring an acquittal.
For weeks, the Republican Party has slammed the Democrats focused upon what they consider to be unfair hearings. They invaded one of the hearings armed with fried chicken and their phones which was against the House security rules. They tweeted non-stop how crooked was the intel chairman, Adam Schiff. They claim Schiff lied when he read a parody. They don't state that Schiff said publcly that what he was going to read was "essentially" what was written.
mpeachment judgment day is hheree. So, should the House of Representatives impeach? My answer is yes, BUT.
He has worn plenty of hats. He's a former Louisiana State Senator, Secretary of State, Insurance Commissioner,. He ran for Louisiana governor and along with Edwin Edwards, Billy Tauzin, Bob Livingston and others who all were beaten by a little-known Congressman, Buddy Roemer. He is an attorney, columnist, publisher, husband, father and grandfather. He's also a story-teller.
Does a target of an investigation have the right to smear a witness who might or who did testify against him, and then claim he has free speech right to so engage? Does he have the right to threaten removal from employment or position to limit any future witness from providing testimony when subpoenaed by Congress?
Trump tweeted this weekend slamming Jennifer Williams, calling her a Never Trumper. Williams testifies today. So the most powerful man in the world claims he has the right to tweet and disparage to tens of millions of people, intimidating that or any future witness who is compelled to testify against him? He is asserting that anybody who agrees to a subpoena should now be labelled “Never Trumpers” without providing one iota bit of evidence.
It's time to talk Turkey.
With Thanksgiving now roughly ten days away, it is almost winter holiday-time when we spend quality moments with our friends, relatives and loved-ones. And to prepare everyone with the right spirit, on Thursday November 21, we're serving up some of the most recognized political-turkey-talk with punch.
I am convinced. It is a fact. For those who I call ardent pro-Trumpers, the national GOP and the Republican Congress, facts don't matter in the Donald Trump impeachment probe. It is all about politics.
No matter what the House of Representatives do, no matter what evidence has been or will be uncovered, the probe is not about facts. It is about emotions and partisanship.
The inquiry is not for truth. Truth is irrelevant.
This does not mean that I believe that the Democrats have proven their case. However, I do believe they could and would if Donald Trump allowed the witnesses to testify and the documents to be released.
But, that won't happen. Regardless how we have heard the Fox News bunch call for transparency for the FISA probe, let all the facts come out, that type of talk is all talk when push comes to shove and the probe is on their own.
The Trump impeachment inquiry day one is now history. The hysteria mounts. Tomorrow, part two.
This week, I posted the below items on my Facebook page. The first written Tuesday deals with what I consider to be the real evidence developing in the proceedings that could possibly result in impeachment of President Donald J. Trump, although, obviously, bets are off when it goes to the US Senate. The second post was written minutes after the first impeachment hearing yesterday.
Are you serious?
That’s how I felt when I saw Donald Trump’s commercial as he screamed to his rally crowd that Louisiana must reject current Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards.
Bad enough that Louisiana Republicans have to import a national figure into the state to tell us whom should be our governor. But if they are going to do so, please bring in someone with real credibility than bringing in a clown who is always tripping over his falsehoods.
