Impeachment Trial Is Constitutional
With a final vote of 56-44 with six Republicans joining all of their Democratic colleagues on Tuesday, the Senate voted that the impeachment trial against former President Trump is constitutional.
During the presentation, the House impeachment managers showed how rioters violently breached the U.S. Capitol and attacked police officers as they invoked Trump’s name as they tried to disrupt the certification process for the result of the election.
Trump’s legal team has contended that the impeachment trial itself is unconstitutional and argued that Trump did not incite the rioters and that his speech about the election was protected by the first amendment.
In the argument, Congressman Neguse said,”The President can’t inflame insurrection in his final week and then walk away like nothing happened, and yet that is the rule that President Trump asks you to adopt.”
The Senate plans to continue the trial every day until it concludes including the weekend.
The trial ultimately will not let Trump be impeached because it is impossible to get 67 votes in the Senate, but in reality, the damage to our reputation as the greatest democratic nation on earth will be deep and lasting.
Today many nations are following us to be a democratic country. If we are not going to believe the system we live under, how can we expect the rest of the world to do so? In the case of Burma, the same thing is happening.
