Schiff conveys impeachment trial as a fight for democracy


Recommended Posts

As lead impeachment manager Adam Schiff neared the end of his two-hour presentation, the House intelligence committee chairman laid out what he believes is at stake in the Senate trial.

 

Schiff pointed to the rise of autocratic leaders around the world to argue that democracy is not “immutable” and that Americans must fight to defend their system of government.

 

“There’s nothing immutable about this,” Schiff said. “Every generation has to fight for it. We’re fighting for it right now. There’s no guarantee that this democracy that has served us so well will continue to prosper.”

Most Americans Want Trump Removed From Office

 


While 63 percent of Americans say Trump has definitely or probably acted illegally as president or as a candidate, a slim 51 percent majority says he should be removed from office for those crimes, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

The Traitor Trump and the Republican Party are the greatest threats to the freedom of all Americans.

If a President cannot or is not held accountable for "High crimes and misdemeanors," by the Congress as the Constitution provides, then we are no longer a "Republic," and have degenerated into a fascist dictatorship, led by lying despot, Trump!!!

Agree with everything you said. House Managers are arguing Trump must be removed from office.

We’ll see the mood of the electorate in November when Trump has a real chance of being removed.
