"See You In The Senate" -- President Trump

Recommended Posts

Trump threatens to have Schiff, Bidens, Pelosi testify in Senate trial as he dares House to impeach

 

 

Republicans hold the majority in the Senate and Trump allies hold chairmanships on key committees, with many of them signaling their interest in exploring issues that House Democrats glossed over during their hearings — such as the Bidens’ business dealings in Ukraine and alleged Ukraine interference in the 2016 presidential election.

But despite his threats, the president does not, alone, have the power to call witnesses to testify in those proceedings. In the Senate trial, three separate parties have input to how it will play out: Senate Republicans, Senate Democrats and the White House.

SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI: Good morning.

 

Let us begin where our founders began in 1776. When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another. With those words, our founders courageously began our Declaration of Independence from an oppressive monarch, for among other grievances the king’s refusal to follow rightfully passed laws.

In the course of today’s events, it becomes necessary for us to address, among other grievances, the president’s failure to faithfully execute the law. When crafting the Constitution, the founders feared the return of a monarchy in America. And having just fought a war of independence, they specifically feared the prospect of a king-president corrupted by foreign influence.

Then he has a big problem. He can only call fact witnesses on his behalf. Once again the laughing stock of the world doesn't seem to get this isn't a tv show, and he's not the boss.

He's on his way to prison. It's just a matter of when, not if. It will either happen starting after next years election, or even in his favor, after his second term if he's reelected, but he's going to prison. In the mean time, we will be steadily throwing people associated with him in prison, just like we are right now. There's no escape for Trump, and his crime family.

Nope...wrong.  While rules for an impeachment trial currently exist, the Senate...by majority vote...can change the rules in any manner they choose.  If they decide all House witnesses must wear Mickey Mouse ears, those witnesses must wear them.  The Constitution gives the Senate exclusive authority to conduct impeachment trials...they set the rules and can change them.

 

It is also important to remember the Chief Justice does NOT serve as a judge...he is the presiding officer.  While the current rules allow him to rule on things like relevancy, materiality, etc., any of his rulings can be overturned by a majority vote of the Senate...any Senator can call a vote on the issue he ruled on and it is put to a vote sans debate.

 

McConnell has said he hopes to negotiate on the rules with Schumer...but if a deal he (McConnell) likes cannot be reached he will go to his caucus and ask them to force the rules they want into place.

I hope not. We have a tradition of not jailing our corrupt ex leaders. Bad precedent.

The upset caused by GOP President-elect Donald Trump’s astounding and unexpected victory has sent largely liberal communities spiraling into depression and suicidal ideations, according to crisis hotlines.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline was flooded with calls after Trump’s win Tuesday evening, far exceeding call volume from the presidential elections in 2012 and 2008.

Guess again, dolt. The presiding judge is John Roberts, and he gets to decide what’s relevant or not.

As “presiding officer”.   Try actually reading the link or one of numerous other resources.
