Today, America listened to the House Impeachment Managers in charge of convicting former President Donald Trump for inciting an insurrection against the U.S. Government, and his team of defense lawyers charged with exonerating him. After hours of listening to both sides, most observers came away with two facts. The House Managers laid down some strong legal arguments, backed by a compelling video time-lining the insurrection, as opposed to rambling, ranting defense attorneys that failed to mount a case for their client. Is this about bad lawyers or bad Trump criminality? No great lawyer could save Trump from the insurrection he deliberately incited because Trump’s crimes are bigger than the biggest lawyers.
Trump led an insurrection against the United States by launching his supporters to storm the Capitol. The evidence is overwhelming, and It matters little whether Robespierre and Perceval represented him, or the two débutant lawyers we heard today in the Senate pleading his case. The crime, the witnesses, the videos, the “cause” and “effect” makes it the worst crime to defend against. Regardless of how good the lawyers are.
… the crowd response to Trump orders show a direct correlation between Trump’s words and the domestic terrorists’ actions.
A COMPELLING EVIDENCE
The House Impeachment Managers, under the leadership of Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), delivered powerful arguments in favor of indicting the former president. If you missed the video Raskin played during the trial, you don’t want to miss it again.
It has been timelined to show how guilty Trump is of inciting the insurrectionists to storm the Capitol. Not only that, but the crowd response to Trump orders show a direct correlation between Trump’s words and the domestic terrorists’ actions. Trump’s crimes are bigger than the biggest lawyers, and no one can save him from this except the few dozen cowards in the Republican Senates who intend to vote against the impeachment no matter how strong is the evidence they all witnessed first-hand.
Having said that, at the beginning of the trial, 56 Senators voted to confirm its constitutionality, which is one more Republican Senator than expected. This may or may not be a good sign that more Republican Senators might tilt towards an indictment, especially because of the horrible performances of his defense attorneys. One of them never even mentioned the word “insurrection” as if the whole indictment is a charade.
If you think our government is paralyzed, Mitch McConnell is the scorpion behind the paralysis.
THE SCORPION SENATOR
Who voted against the constitutionality of impeaching a President that is no longer in office but the Senator scorpion from Kentucky Mitch McConnell. The hypocrisy of this man is beyond one’s patience to accept it for its face value. This is the same Mitch McConnell who refused to hold the trial on his watch. He kicked the ball to the Democrats, and now he is voting to claim that Trump’s out-of-office status prohibits the Senate from holding a trial. Imagine the venom on that scorpion.
That’s another man America would fare much better without. During his tenure, the last four years, McConnell sat on 395 bills that he refused to allow on the floor for a vote. A record number. If you think our government is paralyzed, Mitch McConnell is the scorpion behind the paralysis.
Who else feels the stung of a scorpion? Donald Trump himself. Aides told the media he was screaming at the TV while his defense attorneys were defending him. Here is what The Independent wrote:
Someone call the doctor, please. Donald does not feel good.
