The women and men testifying at the impeachment hearing are intelligent, credible, and informative. The facts they reveal are irrefutable; Trump, Pence, Giuliani, and Pompeo are all guilty of attempting to bribe a foreign official to gain advantage in the 2020 election.
Most of you understand the process, but for the few of you who may not, this is how a president and other members of the executive branch are impeached, and here’s what will actually happen.
The process begins with what is currently happening today. Only the House can initiate the process and the House holds the hearings to decide if the individual should be indicted. If a preponderance of evidence points to a ‘high crime or misdemeanor,’ in this situation ‘abuse of power,’ and possibly treason for first amendment violations, she or he is tried in the Senate. A two-thirds majority is required to remove a sitting president, vice-president, Secretary of State, and others. Here’s what will happen.
Trump challenged Speaker Nancy Pelosi to send the impeachment documents to the Senate. He told the press that he owns Republicans and will be acquitted. I agree. It is highly doubtful than one Republican will defy Moscow Mitch and do the right thing for their country. They are all cowards and hypocrites.
Trump can be impeached again and again if new evidence about additional crimes is discovered.
The bottom line is that Trump is unfit to be our nation’s president. He is mentally challenged, the leader of white supremacy in America, is an amoral man who sexually assaulted at least 20 women, admitted that he is a sexual predator, had at least two affairs immediately after his son, Barron, was born, is a bigot who rejects the rights of non-Christians to worship the religion of their choice, and supports fascist ideas; rejecting democracy. Trump is a would-be ‘king;’ an goal which is prevented by the first amendment.
Should this man be your president? He will never be mine.
