High Clowns and Misdemeanors Is More Accurate

I dislike wasting time.  I dislike people who waste time even more.

Spoiler alert: Congress will vote to impeach President Trump regardless of the facts.  A few Democrats in swing districts will break ranks because they care about their re-election chances more than finding the truth.

Spoiler Alert: The Sequel:  The Senate will acquit President Trump and he will not be removed from office regardless of the facts. We know some Senate Republicans who despise Trump like Senator Mitt Romney will join their Democratic counterparts because hating President Trump is more important than finding the truth.

Here’s another spoiler alert.  We will never know the truth.  We all have our opinions.  We are all sure he heavy implied a quid pro quo or it was a “perfect” call. We make these assessments not based on the facts or reasonable doubt or anything remotely close to objectiveness.

No.  We make our assessment based on how much we like or dislike him.  We make our decision based on how much we like or dislike the political elite who believe they are entitled to run this country.  We even make our choice based on how much we despise the media and their propagandist ways.

Since we know all this now, why can’t we just skip to the end and get it over with? This way maybe…maybe the political leaders will actually do their jobs

The facts of this case are few. We know there was a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25.  After that we are treated to hearsay and second-hand information based on supposed overheard conversations.  Within that framework, those who hate President Trump are convinced he threatened to withhold money unless President Zelensky investigate former vice president Joe Biden.

Supporters of President Trump immediately point to instances where former President Obama withheld money from other nations unless they acted a certain way.  OK.  So what? Two wrongs do not make a right.

Further, Constitutional lawyers say a quid pro quo is not an impeachable offense while others say it is.  Guess what party each group belongs to?

It appears that Democrats are hoping the Impeachment inquiry damages President Trump’s re-election chances and I bet these proceedings will come to a screeching halt and end if the polls show the opposite. There are some who will tell you that Republicans want the impeachment trials so it hurts the Democrats re-election chances. 

The bottom line is we cannot prove anything without facts and this circus will end with one house impeaching the president and another house exonerating him.  They need to stop wasting time and get to work for the American people.  And voters will have their say next November and I hope the message sent is loud and clear that we want elected officials who work for the people…not themselves.

About Armando Diana

A freelance writer for more than 30 years I covered the political scene in New Jersey which can prepare anyone for national politics. I have no fancy political degrees and I'm definitely not a lawyer - I am a common person who is fed up with politics. I want leaders focused on doing what is right for the country, not for them.
