The Constitution states: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
The house charged Trump with:
- Abuse of Powers
- Obstruction of Congress
The House considered impeaching Trump on counts that are included such as bribery but instead proceeded on these two counts. Can’t the Senate vote to dismiss the charges since they don’t meet the criteria for impeachment? There’s no need for the House managers to appear. I realize that it would be useful to investigate how the standards for a whistleblower were suddenly modified and it would be helpful to know about the connections between Schiff and the supposed whistleblower. But there’s no need for the Senate to have deliberate these ridiculous unconstitutional grounds for impeachment.Published in
