Trump will almost certainly be acquitted, because he has the votes in the Senate. Why a fair impeachment trial still matters. | 1. Because impeachment is a matter of the highest national concern 2.

The House should have gritted their teeth and got an court order to force the witnesses to appear and allowed Trump due process as well, now they want a do over after rushing thorough the process like a bunch of dumb-asses. i.imgflip.com/3jt0ze.jpg (click to show)

Trump’s ridiculously overbroad claims of executive privilege created this situation in the first place.

How the House chose to respond to that — battle it out in court, or proceed with filing the Articles — is a matter within its “sole discretion” under the Constitution, and there are good reasons for the sake of our country for wanting to proceed rather than letting it drag out another few months if possible.

The month-long “negotiation period” during which Pelosi held onto the articles and Republicans decried was certainly about this. But McConnell wouldn’t commit to anything.

Even so: The ball is now in the Senate’s court, and Trump’s own court, frankly. I just don’t know how Trump gets out of this without testifying himself or even letting any of his top officials testify. It’s just not a good look, at all, and sets a terrible precedent going forward as far as holding future presidential administrations accountable.

That a nice overly emotional response, and justification of the delay ignoring why Pelosi said she did it (again).. Either the House should complete the investigation as impeachment is the sole power of the House, or they should go without their duty being done.

You want your cake and be able to eat it to, but you still need to respect Trump's due process rights as well as the right to a speedy trial rather than dragging the trial out a few months now.

Throwing out constitutional protections due to impatience itself is a bad precedent itself, and entirely unnecessary to get what you want.

So the House choice not to do the job right, so that is Trump's fault.

And Trump doesn't need to actually testify, or even offer any defense at all. He is innocent until actual proof of guilt is offered, and I've seen how much you read into the call that which is not really their to justify your position that proof of guilt has been reached.
