So the Senate voted to acquit President Trump on both charges, mostly as expected. I’d like to pose a question to the Ricochet community, and I hope you’ll take a moment to respond: As a conservative, how do you view the vote on the second article related to abuse of power in the Ukraine call? […]

The error of the House was not beginning with the end in mind.

Back in the “I’m just a bill” days of Schoolhouse Rock, I was a Boy Scout getting my first merit badge-fueled deep dive into the US Constitution.
