Pelosi: ‘No choice’ but to move forward with articles of impeachment
“Censure” is a condemnation by an official body that results because they believe that a public official has acted immorally. That particular word is used because the act goes beyond mere transgressions of law, and violates our most fundamental beliefs, as are expressed in the “Ten Commandments,” and the “Preamble to the Constitution.”
Looks like President Trump will be impeached, and smart money says, before Christmas – accompanied by very strong censure (which could include taking away, or closely monitoring, many of Trump’s responsibilities).
It is very possible to restrain and restrict Donald Trump. There’s already a strong federal law requiring that acts of Presidential power be reviewed and authorized within six months of implementation. They may be reviewed, and terminated instantly, at any time. Likewise, it is illegal to violate the rights to due process that are guaranteed to asylum seekers. No wall; no concentration camps at the Border. Just like that!
But, there’s an unwritten rule that says that you can’t impeach with removal in the last six months of office. So, accounting for the holidays, there’s only about 3-1/2 months for a Senate trial with all its particular, and unwavering requirements. That’s not realistic. But, it can simply be dispensed with.
The House of Representatives is the “Voice of the People,” and the people will have spoken. Trump won’t be able to blow anything up. Pence won’t be President. Trump will be voted out.
But, I’m left searching for a candidate who understands what an honor it would be to be President. I’m running out of time on that one too.
