In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Senate votes impeachment trial is constitutional, will continue

Democrats are 11 votes short of what they will need to convict.

According to Fox News:

The Senate voted Tuesday to move ahead with the unprecedented impeachment trial of former President Trump after listening to nearly four hours of arguments on whether it is constitutional to try a president who is already out of office.

The vote was 56-44.

The six Republicans who joined with the Democrats on voting to continue the trial were Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mitt Romney of Utah, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

Cassidy changed his vote from January when he was among the 45 Republicans who supported a motion by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., that declared the trial unconstitutional. Cassidy said he was persuaded by the House impeachment managers’ arguments on Tuesday.

“If anyone disagrees with my vote and would like an explanation, I ask them to listen to the arguments presented by the House Managers and former President Trump’s lawyers,” Cassidy said in a statement. “The House managers had much stronger constitutional arguments. The president’s team did not.”

  1. When do we get to go back and impeach Jug Ears Barack the Magic Negro if this is now Constitutional? He aided and abated ISIS, the Taliban, and sent palates of cash to the Iranians! If this is what the demorats call unity, I want no part of it.

    1. Good point, KC. Unfortunately, we all know that anything a Demonrat does is just fine to Demonrats, their allies and supporters. B Hussein Obama worked constantly to help our country’s enemies. You mentioned some. Others include helping Guantanamo terrorists elude justice, supporting a brutal corrupt Cuban government, assisting illegals to come into our country and do great damage to our citizens and country. Hussein O could care less about helping us, the average, hardworking American. But, in the Demonrat gospels, B Hussein O (and his wife) are saints and therefore B Hussein O is to be worshiped, not condemned, for blatantly helping our country’s enemies. So think and act Demonrats and their ilk.

      1. Ah, *whataboutism*. Is B Hussein was so corrupt? Why didn’t Drumpf prosecute him?? Too much time on the golf courses to do any work. No wonder he lost by 7 million votes!!

  2. The 6 Republicans who joined the 50 Democrats can only be described in a manner that I won’t go into; if I did, I would make myself sick to my stomach and I don’t want to go there. The Demonrats stick together with a force stronger than the strongest force known to men, the STRONG FORCE that joins the particles of an atomic nucleus together. These Demonrats must be laughing their butts off to see 6 mushy brained Republicans support their evil actions against a President who was one of the best our country has seen in decades. May God not allow 11 more Republicans to join the 6 neuron-damaged Republicans to convict President Trump.

  3. Last night I did get a bit sick to my stomach when I saw Pat Toomey went with the democrats. As a PA conservative and Republican, I am so ashamed to see how he folds his cards so easily. I understand he won’t be seeking re-election in the future and perhaps that is why he’s such a coward now. He won’t have to answer to the people who elected him.
