As most of you know, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is actively coordinating the Senate trial procedures with the White House in order to help protect the president. Yet Sen. McConnell will be part of the ‘jury’ during the trial in the Senate. He has stated that he will not vote to remove the president and will not be impartial in the proceedings. So I thought I’d borrow these suggestions about jury duty that were created with him in mind:
Invite went out from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. It’s unlikely, but maybe they will remove him before February 4th? Well probably not. But considering the six page rant of lies and fairy tales and discredited talking points sent to Rep. Pelosi by someone in the White House (we know the president doesn’t have the skills to have written it), this is devilishly civil:
Those pesky radical environmentalists have not banned straws fast enough…as we find the White House wildly grasping at a few:
The White House is thinking about making the argument that President Trump wasn’t impeached because Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has not sent articles of impeachment to the Senate, according to multiple reports.
A person familiar with the matter told Bloomberg, which first reported the news, that the White House legal theory is that the Senate would already have jurisdiction if Trump had been impeached.
oh….jeezuz louizeez…what next?
Well Representative Tulsi Gabbard (? – HI) certainly is continuing to stake out her position as an outlier…by voting present on both articles of impeachment. I would have preferred she vote against them rather than this wishy/washy position that she has taken. She is not a leader.
“After doing my due diligence in reviewing the 658-page impeachment report, I came to the conclusion that I could not in good conscience vote either yes or no,” Gabbard said in a statement. “I am standing in the center and have decided to vote Present. I could not in good conscience vote against impeachment because I believe President Trump is guilty of wrongdoing. I also could not in good conscience vote for impeachment because removal of a sitting President must not be the culmination of a partisan process, fueled by tribal animosities that have so gravely divided our country.”
And fortunately we won’t have to stomach her appearance in tomorrow’s debate:
Tulsi Gabbard, a few days before failing to qualify for the debate, announced on December 9 that she would not participate regardless of whether she qualifies
I can’t support Rep. Gabbard in any way, shape, or form anymore…and can’t see a real future for her in the Democratic Party.
Not a bad idea Mr. President! There is some precedent from the second half of the 20th Century…you might have read about it in Time magazine at your podiatrists office.
