Second Impeachment of Donald J. Trump: Viewing Thread

Remove this mentally ill daughter-fucker now!

by Anonymousreply 446Last Sunday at 6:21 AM

I love that CNN just cut away from that midget, Gym Jordan.

These Republican representatives are so full of shit with their “WhY dOn’T dEmOcRaTs WaNt To UnIfY tHe CoUnTrY?” There’s overwhelming public consensus that Trump incited the insurrection. Why don’t fucking Republicans unify the country around impeaching the cocksucker? I don’t understand why they’re trying to appeal to his ever-dwindling base. Cunts.

It needs to proceed because it is the right thing to do on principle, but I feel like I may have just figured out McConnell's game. He wants Trump ruined and then he will exploit the Dems rush of the process in the midterms. I'm wrong if it makes the Senate and he votes to convict but if he wiggles out somehow - abstains, gets the flu - this was his scam.

He and Trump have the same "keep screaming" technique of communication. It creates a panic in the listener that is somewhat hypnotic. If you respond quietly, they shout you down again.

It needs to proceed because it is the right thing to do on principle, but I feel like I may have just figured out McConnell's game. He wants Trump ruined and then he will exploit the Dems rush of the process in the midterms. I'm wrong if it makes the Senate and he votes to convict but if he wiggles out somehow - abstains, gets the flu - this was his scam.

I don't disagree that this is a political calculation on McConnell's part, however, since Dump went out in public earlier this week & clearly threatened violence again (and god knows what the fuck else he & Pompeo are up to), I think the dems had to act clearly to demonstrate that were at least*attempting* to put some sort of restraint on the president, unlike the repigs who seemed to be content to just hide his phone and duck his calls.

I realize this is just who he is, but I wish for once McConnell could drop the *calculation* bullshit - he's an old man at the end of the anyway - and do what's right for the country as oppose to devising the best method to fuck over Chuck Schumer. Yes, I realize, this is who he is, but you think almost being killed by a mob by the man you've supported the last 4 years might give you some perspective

^Because IRL justice doesn't move like a Law and Order episode, unfortunately. Still, everyone of them should have already been arrested and charged like Democrats are at protests. From Occupy Wall Street where 8,000 people were easily arrested.

Among those arrested in the raid was New York City Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and then held in a police van alone for two hours. Rodriguez’s arrest came just a week after he helped organized an 11-mile march from the his district in the Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights, a largely immigrant community, to Occupy Wall Street.

"18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason: Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."

This is a discussion by a US Justice official and a Professor of Law on its interpretation: "The offense of “levying war” against the United States was interpreted narrowly in Ex parte Bollman & Swarthout (1807), a case stemming from the infamous alleged plot led by former Vice President Aaron Burr to overthrow the American government in New Orleans. The Supreme Court dismissed charges of treason that had been brought against two of Burr’s associates—Bollman and Swarthout—on the grounds that their alleged conduct did not constitute levying war against the United States within the meaning of the Treason Clause. It was not enough, Chief Justice John Marshall’s opinion emphasized, merely to conspire “to subvert by force the government of our country” by recruiting troops, procuring maps, and drawing up plans. Conspiring to levy war was distinct from actually levying war. Rather, a person could be convicted of treason for levying war only if there was an “actual assemblage of men for the purpose of executing a treasonable design.” In so holding, the Court sharply confined the scope of the offense of treason by levying war against the United States. "

I also read that the reason hardly anyone is indicted for Treason is that the law specifies conviction can only come from confession in open court or the testimony of at least two witnesses. It's normally hard to find the two witnesses. Well...

I know people are angry that McConnell won't call the Senate back for an emergency session, but we WANT the vote to be after the new senators are sworn in and with a different Majority Leader.

R418, Trump is reportedly threatening to pardon himself prior to his last day. If he does, it'll be a battle in the courts after he's out of office to decide whether he can or not. SCOTUS probably will ultimately say no, but with a stacked SCOTUS, that's not guaranteed.

Also, we want to avoid Trump dragging us down further if we can, and a legal battle after he's out of office won't do anyone any good.

That still wouldn’t have anything to do with the impeachment. Let him try to pardon himself until the cows come home. It’s zero to do with impeachment.

If he pardons himself he’s legally wide open if SCOTUS rules he can’t do that. He would no longer have the 5th Amendment protection.

Thanks, R426. That's a good guide. I found this part worth noting:

[quote]Conviction in an impeachment trial would not automatically disqualify Mr. Trump from future public office. But if the Senate were to convict him, the Constitution allows a subsequent vote to bar an official from holding “any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.”

[quote]That vote would require only a simple majority of senators. Such a step could be an appealing prospect not just to Democrats, but also to many Republicans who either have set their sights on the presidency themselves or are convinced that it is the only thing that will purge Mr. Trump from their party. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, is said to hold the latter view.

I think the determining factor will be the info that's coming out daily about the extent of the danger to Pence et al, the level of violence aimed at individual police who were trying to stop the rioters, and most important, the degree of collusion by individual congress members/their staff and Federal officials. The worse the picture gets, the more R senators will want to distance themselves from Trump and throttle his influence on the party.
