One might say that we don't care about the criminal aspects of Trump's behavior, as long as he does his job,. But when we need Trump to be our President, and to be there for us, he isn't.
The most serious abuses of power that the "Founders and Framers" could imagine were to receive a title (which always had a monetary and political value), or for there to be even a hint that money was exchanged for influence.
Republicans will be able to block, individually, any new witnesses. They will do this with every important witness. That's a rigged trial.
If Rudy Giuliani's criminal associates, and troops enlisted from the ranks of Russian and Ukrainian cyber-terrorists, were conspiring to fix the U.S. Presidential Election long before the 2016 election itself, then Giuliani has known all this time.
Thist is the choice that Republican Senators make: not whether or not to end Drumpf's criminal career. But whether or not to be loyal to their country or slaves to organized crime.
"It's not like people think," the boxer knows, "it ain't about knocking guys through the ropes, or fighting dirty. It's about getting hit; taking a hard hit that jars your senses a little, and standing back up again. It's about throwing a punch he'd never expect when you don't have the strength to raise your arm. It's about you maybe getting hit three times for every one that you land, but making him pay."
There have to be limits on power. If there are none, then evil men and women will use fear, brute force, and nationalism to enslave us.
What if, the longer Trump allows this refusal of a fair trial to drag on, the more public hearings into his impeachable offenses are held and the more Articles of Impeachment may be voted on, making an even bigger the case will be when the trial finally does take place?
First, Republicans told us that, "Truth isn't truth." Then, the most remorseless liar that I've ever seen informed us further that, "There's no such thing as truth." Now, Mr. Santorum would have us believe that, "Truth is irrelevant."
For a Senator to defy the Constitution, and stand in open defiance of it because he worships a freakish would-be dictator, is beyond outrage, and cannot be tolerated.
