Letter: Republicans don’t want to hear evidence
Settling the grounds for impeachment of President Donald Trump is simple.
In a tweet on Jan. 11 at 9:29 AM he said the following: “Now the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, are asking @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell to do the job that they were unable to do. They proved NOTHING but my total innocence in the House, despite the most unfair and biased hearings in the history of Congress. Now they demand fairness!”
The House inquiry was to determine the charges the Senate would try. If he is not guilty, he should testify at the Senate trial or at least provide the subpoenaed witnesses and documents that he has kept hidden. It is bizarre for an innocent to refuse presenting documents and witnesses which prove his innocence.
As for the fairness of the House inquiry, they acceded to his complaints and invited him to present his side, but he refused. I can understand his nonparticipation.
If all he has for evidence of his innocence is his usual modus operandi, citing evil deeds of others back to Cain and Abel, he doesn’t seem to understand that the guilt of others has no bearing on his guilt or innocence. McConnell and Republicans publicly stated they are not interested in facts, evidence and documented administration lies in spite of the oath they will take to be fair and impartial.
On broadcast TV McConnell has said Republicans just want a fast trial so they can proclaim the President’s innocence. They apparently don’t want all those revealing documents, witnesses who will honor the oath for fairness and impartiality and all those recorded TV statements that document lies by the president and all his acolytes.
