Moscow Mitch must recuse himself

So must Lickspittle Lindsey Graham

According to Senate rules, the senators hearing the Trump impeachment trial must take this oath:

I solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may be) that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of [President Trump], now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: So help me God.

Moscow Mitch has made it abundantly clear that he has no interest in anything resembling justice, bragging about predetermining the outcome.

Now, Lickspittle Lindsey says this: “I have made up my mind,” Graham said Saturday at a conference in Qatar. “I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here.”

These two senators cannot participate in the trial as they have already promised to abrogate their responsibilities and void their oath.

And, just thinking aloud here, how does it help Trump if he is not removed from office when members of the Senate so blatantly admit that the fix is in?

Republicans are marching to the beat of the Putin drum

It is bad enough that the denizens of the White House and their sycophants in Congress are ever more fervently repeating the conspiracy theories cooked up by the Russians. Now, Moscow Mitch has abdicated any responsibility for even trying to have the appearance of a fair Senate impeachment trial. Instead, he has publicly stated that he will allow the White House to control the trial. Trump and McConnell are clearly disloyal to the U.S., and completely in the thrall of Putin. This is sickening and will only get worse as they become increasingly emboldened.

Russia sees a way to defeat the U.S. by coopting our government and never having to fire a shot. Say thanks to the treasonous Republicans for handing our fate and future to Vladimir Putin.

Let Moscow Mitch tell you himself:

Moscow Mitch admits Senate trial a sham, lets Trump’s lawyers run the show and guarantees acquittal

Treason?

The definition of treason as relates to federal law:

Federal. Definition: In Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution, treason is specifically limited to levying war against the US, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Conviction requires two witnesses or a confession in open court.

The definition of treason according to Trump:

Trump. Definition: Any time someone acts or speaks in a way that is contrary to the will of Donald Trump.

Trump wants legislators acting in accordance with their constitutional responsibilities arrested for treason. This is a perfect example of Trump’s panicked reaction to his obvious guilt.

Donald Trump: Turd

Donald J. Trump, the illegitimately elected president of the United States, has proven, once and for all, that he is a big orange turd dropped directly from the asshole of Satan.  I will not defile this blog with his tweet this morning about U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.).  You have probably heard or read it by now anyway.  I will just say that this sexist, women-hating, ignorant pig-boy has no business holding any public office whatsoever.  He is president now thanks to Russian interference in our election process, he remains in power because the other members of his party are more interested in their power than their country, he has obstructed justice, shit on the First Amendment, and betrayed the people who voted for him.  He needs to resign immediately.  If he will not resign, he needs to be legally removed, either by impeachment or by the mechanism in the 25th Amendment.
