And yet the rope remains. He is guilty, we all know it and claiming victory in a rigged fight means nothing.
He will always be impeached. He is the first impeached president to have one of his own party vote him guilty. That, too, will always be attached to his name. I predict Republican congress members and others in the party will denounce the man immediately after he leaves office.
Actually mikey that would be the American People that are thrown under the bus because all rethuglican’s believe they are above the Law and don’t care who knows it!
Once again into the breach goes the witless rethuggy incompetents with constipated conn-servative rationalizations of our Founding Fathers opinions based on nothing more than his party’s BS !
As our Founding Fathers Mason, Madison & Randolph saw the need to provide for such days as these by including Impeachment as a Constitutional Protection against the abuses we now watch unfolding before us in their own words:
Madison argued that the Constitution needed a provision “for defending the community against the incapacity, negligence, or perfidy of the Chief Magistrate.” Waiting to vote him out of office in a general election wasn’t good enough. “He might pervert his administration into a scheme of peculation”— embezzlement—“or oppression,” Madison warned. “He might betray his trust to foreign powers.”
As an excuse for their failure to uphold their duty’s and their sacred oaths of office and oaths to provide a Fair Trial the rethuggy representatives repeatedly attempted to claim that it was sacrilege to disenfranchise the 6.3 million voters who voted for the trumpsterfire and to allow the voters to decide his fate, yet forgot to mention the fact that his bloatedness Lost the Vote of the Majority by 6.6 million votes.
The rethuglican belief that the voters should choose brings us to what Founding Father George Mason said:
“Shall any man be above justice?” Mason asked. “Shall that man be above it who can commit the most extensive injustice?” A presidential candidate might bribe the electors to gain the presidency, Mason suggested. “Shall the man who has practiced corruption, and by that means procured his appointment in the first instance, be suffered to escape punishment by repeating his guilt?”
As we watch the rethuglican party of greed & corruption and its head stooge trumpty dumpty step up their assaults on our Democracy we must make sure we scrutinize every despicable action they create to enlighten us in the ways of their corruption!
You do know that ‘impeached’ rope is never going away. Much like Clinton, the stink of being impeach lasts forever in history books. And much like GOP argued they had bipartisan ‘no’ votes in House impeachment, the Dems can argue they had bipartisan ‘convict’ votes in the Senate trial. Facts do sting.
Lester doing a “little” projection here? So, perhaps, he, too, may be hoping for a round of golf at Doral with #45…
DrDon, I remember how honored the conservative radio commentators were when they were invited to the White House when Bush2 was there. Limbaugh, Hannity, Boortz and others. That was when I could still stand to listen to them before they went right full rudder.
Everyone knew the fix was in when the case was brought over to the Senate. However, it was executed in such a way to show the world how corrupt the entire Cult of Trump (formerly GOP) was. This will certainly have an impact on the 2020 elections. Trump went on a MAGA manifesto cult rally during his State of Mental Confusion speech, and after the Cult Followers freed the rabid weasel from conviction, he showed them how much he learned by giving an unhinged performance during the National Prayer Breakfast, then goes off the rails during a White House rant. After that, he started a purging of anyone who testified against him during the investigation.
Wow, he really learned his lesson, didn’t he, Susan Collins. You sure did get faked out again. But the country saw and I think they noted this, and the Republicans will find out what they’ve earned come November.
Congratulations, Mr. Lester. Your guy got away with his crimes because your party decided that justice was less important than retaining power. Now imagine if the Democrats decide this is perfectly acceptable precedent the next time one of them is President.
Been a pretty good week don’t you think?
@mlester101 – Certainly not for our democratic republic!
Clever. Very clever. Supremely clever even.
Considering the source.
Crime boss vindicated by GOP Mobster’s Union, and Trump lickspittles cheer! Huzzahs from Trump’s billion dollar propaganda wing. Dullards are happily wallowing in the destruction of democracy.
Acquittal does not mean innocent. OJ Simpson.
Ya less its been a good week as the airhead in chief and his pet party of criminal obstructionists have with a firestorm of epoch crimes and failed oaths undermining our Democracy.
Of course the record donations rolling into the Democrats coffers from Americans who normally don’t follow politics shows us the surge in those who understand the difference between right and wrong and will be voting to remove the plight on our land that is rethuglican!
When even those cowards who refused to convict, admit he was guilty on all charges, it’s time to indeed pump the septic tank that’s overflowing on the right side of the Senate, and full in the House.
WHY CAN’T I FLAG THE CARTOONIST!
So basically trump the impeached can do no wrong. That’s what they said about Hitler. The man is deranged.
