Conservative Treehouse

Posted on January 8, 2020

Excerpt:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delivered some bad news to Speaker Pelosi from the floor of the upper-chamber:

…”There will be no haggling with the House over Senate procedure. We will not cede our authority to try this impeachment. The House Democrats’ turn is over. The Senate has made its decision.”…

…Now, go make me a sandwich.

Well done, Mitch.

I'm not exactly your biggest fan. You make plenty of silly errors. But this time you knocked it outta the park. Nasty Pelousy has exactly ZERO legal authority to interfere with Senate procedure.

If the Trump impeachment trial is going to "track closely with" the Clinton impeachment trial, then the fact-finding that Trump prevented in the House investigation will need to be done by the Senate.

I trust McConnell as far as I can throw him, and that ain't too far. He's a tool, and he's consistently disappointed Conservatives since the day he won the Leadership position many years ago. All of Congress is inept and corrupt. The Founders never intended for politicians to have lifetime careers in government.

I don't trust him either, but you are forgetting McConnell does not want to meet the same fate as Paul Ryan. It is in his own self interest to ride Trump's coattails.

The House could have subpoenaed witnesses, but chose not to because time was of the essence, Trump had to be removed from office immediately. Until of course, it was time to send articles of impeachment to the Senate. And now, the Senate is supposed to continue looking for an impeachable offense because the House failed to find any?! No... :wtf2:

John Bolton was prepared to take the House Intelligence Committee to court if he was subpoenaed:

“His counsel has informed us that unlike three other dedicated public servants who worked for him on the NSC (National Security Council) and have complied with lawful subpoenas, Mr. Bolton would take us to court if we subpoenaed him,” an official of the House of Representatives Intelligence committee said.

Trump had to be removed from office immediately. Until of course, it was time to send articles of impeachment to the Senate.


FYI That's not how the process works; the House has nothing to do with removal.

Almost.

The fact-finding that the House was prevented from engaging in because of Trump's obstruction will need to be conducted by the Senate in order for a "fair" trial to take place.

Yeah, and so <censored>ing what? If his testimony was so vital, the "official of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee" (Whoever that could be. My guess, Representative Elaine Fairchild from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.) could have accepted the court challenge. She chose not to because she ultimately would have lost and Bolton wouldn't have brought any new evidence that these partisan clowns wanted anyway.

Hey genius, that's what he said.

Don't want you whining about rule breaking.

That's not how the process works. No matter how many times you repeat it, you are going to be wrong every time.

Wouldn't the founders have intended for the Senate to be made up of people who haven't campaigned and/or intending on further campaigning to stay in office, but rather Senators voted on by congressman?/state reps? Wonder how different all this would be if they hadn't changed that rule way back when.

McConnell was one of the biggest nevertrumpers of all, but he's slowly come around to the right side.
