Impeachment articles are ‘Constitutionally incoherent’
The cock-eyed theory here at Blaska Policy Werkes is that Speaker Nancy Pelosi never transmits the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate. Impeachment was the goal; it has been achieved. Repudiation by the Senate awaits should
“It looks like the [House] prosecutors got cold feet,” U.S. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said today (12-19-19 on the floor of the Senate. “They couldn’t wait for due process but are content [now] to sit on their own hands.”
The articles, he said, “are constitutionally incoherent … because one party cannot accept the people’s choice in 2016.” As Alexander Hamilton warned in Federalist #65, “a partisan faction in the lower chamber has succumbed to partisan rage.”
To subject the full Senate to a lengthy impeachment trial on charges so flimsy would invite a farrago of articles that would “swamp the Senate with trial after trial to paralyze the Senate at their whim.”
If you love the Constitution. If you respect the will of the people. If you believe in due process, do watch Sen. McConnell’s one-half hour statement.
