The news is rather tiring these days. Especially the news about this whole “impeachment” thing. Get on with it already. This whole thing isn’t all that historic, as some media outlets would have you believe. What is historic is the partisan crap the people in Congress are trying to feed Americans.
We all know this whole “impeachment” thing is just the Democratic party posturing and trying to find any way possible to discredit the president, whom they have hated from the beginning, even before he was officially a candidate but especially after he defeated the party “Golden Girl,” Clinton. So, in no surprise to anyone, the vote to “impeach” was totally split down party lines. This “urgency” they claim is just that they want it to happen before the next election, not that it has anything to do with protecting the Constitution and the dignity of the office, as they claim.
We all know the president will not be found guilty in the Senate (even if he might be, like Clinton). This too is a complete sham, but if the Democrats in the House won’t even send the “impeachment articles” to the Republican Senate then there won’t be a “trial” at all.
If the Democrats are afraid to follow the necessary steps to allow the Republicans to complete the process, the impeachment really means nothing. Not that it would mean much if he is acquitted either, for we all know there is not even a shred of legitimacy in the whole process.
Let’s have the trial. Follow the process. Complete the stupidity that both parties are continuing to perpetuate. And then let’s move on.
Do the work of the people, not the party.
