‘A complete sham’: Anger grows over report #GOP senators met with #Trump to map out ‘ #rigged ’ #impeachment trial.
News from The Washington Post that top White House officials held a clandestine meeting Thursday with #Republican Senators to map out a plan to limit the #Senate impeachment trial while #Trump has been secretly “courting” Senate Republicans in an effort to gauge and gain their loyalty has many angered and alarmed.
The House is expected to pass #ArticlesOfImpeachment against #DonaldTrump, which would require the Senate to hold an impartial trial, over which the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court would preside. It very much is a legal proceeding with historic consequences for the future of America’s democracy.
In a desperate attempt to maintain power, Republicans appear to not have grasped this fact, or the gravity of their constitutional duties.
