Well isn’t that convenient? If there’s any part left of the U.S. government that isn’t attempting to pull the wool over the eyes of the American people, I’d like to know.
According to the Washington Examiner, liberal Chief Justice John Roberts won’t be presiding over the Senate impeachment trial of former president Donald Trump for “inciting an insurrection against the Capitol.
Here’s a question — what exactly does the Supreme Court DO anymore? They turn down a lot of cases that are politically inconvenient to the minority of the 5-4 split on the Court (yes, Roberts is part of the minority).
Roberts can reportedly avoid the case because there’s no Constitutional outline as to how to hear an impeachment case against a former president.
And almost as if by design, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) will “oversee the proceedings against Trump.”
That should be really fair to the former president. Leahy was allegedly chosen because he’s dwelled in Congress the longest out of his peers.
Whether or not Trump did anything close enough to warrant being officially charged with any crime, the American people themselves should be clamoring for some kind of impartial judge.
That’s apparently not going to happen for Trump’s trial. Sounds about right for the cesspool known as Washington D.C.
