Talk about someone who should recuse themselves- IF that was at all possible. Moscow Mitch would far prefer to protect trump than our Constitution and our Country.

He has publicly affirmed his total contempt for the Constitution and rejection of the OATH he will swear to before the trial begins:

According to rule XXV of the Senate Rules in Impeachment Trials, all senators must make the following oath: "I solemnly swear [or affirm, as the case may be] that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of [the person being impeached], now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: So help me God."

Moscow Mitch is the poster child for why no Republican should be left in elected office - their leadership is totally corrupt as are their followers.


You're right Scout. If the tables were turned and a Democrat did what McConnell is doing they would move to have him or her removed. The board here would be full of Right Wingerts whining and howling at the moon.

After watching the dimms (only) in the House trample the Presidents' Constitutional rights by applying NO DUE PROCESS, it's blatantly crazy to pursue this remedy.

 

 


Oh?  But I thought that tRump supporters and conservatives want the Constitution followed.  The Constitution charges the Senate to be impartial jurors in a Senate impeachment trial.

 

"Due process" is relevant in Judicial Court proceedings.  But ........... if you and the Republicans want "due process" in the impeachment trial, they should call all witnesses, including tRump and his top aides, and both Parties can question them.

Sadly, Fox seems to prefer to dumb down their audience to support trump and other Conservatives.  Fortunately there is the Lincoln Project for Conservatives who think.  Let's see how much of a voice Fox gives this Conservative group.  So far, not much at all.

That's the point Chaz....not "free speech" as some falsely claim.

 

McConnell has rarely supported the Constitution as reflected in his not allowing Obama to nominate Judge Garland and clearly not being an unbiased jurer.
