To the Editor,
Did you hear what McConnell said regarding Trump’s impeachment trial?
Outside the confines of a dictatorship, it’s almost impossible to believe. Here are McConnell’s words verbatim: “Impeachment is a political decision. The House made a partisan political decision to impeach,” he said. “I would anticipate we will have a largely partisan outcome in the Senate. I’m not impartial about this at all.”
As usual, McConnell is lying, The House impeached Trump based on Trump’s attempted mafia-style shake down of Ukraine’s president. The abuse of power charge arose because Trump solicited foreign interference in the 2020 election.
Obstruction of Congress is because Trump refuses to let anyone submit to congressional oversight. The House held hearings and acted in accordance with the U.S. Constitution. Republicans ignored facts and supported Trump then McConnell declared the Senate trial dead on arrival. There will be no witnesses and our entire system of checks and balances and separation of powers will be upended.
Putin must have files of compromising photos or videos on 90 percent of Republican lawmakers in Congress. Why else would they so suddenly shred the Constitution? Those still supporting Moscow Mitch and Trump are condemning American democracy. What on earth are your descendants going to say?
