Its Time To Make GOP US Senators Pay A Price For Conducting Sham Impeachment Hearing

Related image

On 1/31/2020, It’s become painfully obvious that GOP US senators plan to formally disallow pertinent first hand witnesses to testify at the January 2020 impeachment hearing conducted by the US Senate against President Donald J. Trump.

This is the first impeachment hearing in US history to have blocked the introduction of pertinent testimony/ documents by any relevant witnesses at the same time the Republican Party majority US Senate members argued that the US House had not amassed sufficient data to where they could render the necessary votes to oust President Trump from the White House. This management of the January 2020 US Senate impeachment hearing against President Trump for having demanded that a allied foreign government’s head of state initiate an investigation against a political rival and his family to help him win reelection in November 2020, and while he held up funds allocated by the US Congress in May 2019 for our allied country’s defense against a mutual adversary, Russia, amounts to a cover-up/ a show trial. Acquitting President Trump for his wrongdoings by the GOP lawmakers in the US Senate does not equal exoneration but a cover-up that will be detailed in future US history books to the shame of the current GOP senators.

The Washington DC grapevine has been indicating that it’s highly likely that the GOP US senators will vote against permitting any relevant witnesses from testifying and that they plan to acquit the president a.s.a.p.

On 1/30 Nate Silver twitted following:

@NateSilver538
For some reason it’s considered uncool on this platform to talk about the electoral consequences of decisions around impeachment, but not calling witnesses may leave a bitter taste in a lot of voters’ mouths.

Support for witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial: Quinnipiac 75 Monmouth 80 Reuters 72 CNN 69 AP/NORC 68 WaPo 71 That’s an average of 73%! Republicans are blocking witnesses while admitting Trump engaged in a quid pro quo. Will voters punish them in November for it?

Until the votes are finally cast, please continue to contact your GOP US senators, letting them know that we Trumpian resisters will make them pay the price at the November 2020 elections. No, our memories are not that short.

    • Dear Keith,

      US Senate GOP lawmakers with the exception of Mitt Romney need to lose the majority position in Nov 2020. This is why I’m worried about Senator Bernie Saunders winning the Democratic Party’s nomination to vie for the presidency in 2020. He could win the big prize but it’s my thinking that he’d keep the GOP senators in power.

      Thanks for all you do to try to reach these US Senate GOP Trumpians.

      Hugs, Gronda

  1. Thanks for the information, Gronda! I am writing letters now … phone calls are difficult because I often cannot hear well enough to sound even halfway intelligent, but I have often used resistbot, as well as emails. Let’s hope some of them are willing to listen. Hugs!

    • Dear Jill,

      Thanks for your efforts to contact our recalcitrant GOP US senators to encourage them to take the high road. They’ve forgotten that they are supposed to represent all their constituents and not just the Trumpian supporters and the dark money GOP donors who are lining the pockets of these GOP lawmakers.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • They have indeed forgotten who they represent … in fact, I believe they are under the mistaken impression that Donald Trump is actually their boss … he isn’t. Good to see you, dear friend! I was getting worried.

        Big Hugs!!!

        • Dear Jill,

          I had just written on David’s comment that I seem to become paralyzed whenever treating doctors are discussing the S word (surgery) regarding my care. I had managed to sidestep this issue regarding my broken left shoulder bone around October 2019. This time, it looks like I may not be able to sidestep the S-word because of my having a large kidney stone. I’m hesitant about anyone over 70 years old having to undergo the S word but that’s not always a realistic option.

          Despite this fear, I’m determined to get back to blogging. Thank you for being a loyal friend through thick and thin.

          Hugs, Gronda

        • I do so fully understand, my friend! I would be the same in your shoes, and in fact I have sworn off of doctors altogether! Please, though, do take care of yourself, because we really need you … and I really love you, my friend! Hugs … HUGE hugs! Keep me posted, please.

    • Dear David,

      I seem to become paralyzed whenever treating doctors are discussing the S word (surgery). I had managed to sidestep this issue regarding my broken shoulder bone around October 2019. This time, it looks like I may not be able to sidestep this possibility regarding my having a large kidney stone. I’m of the school of thought that anyone over 70 years old should avoid the S word whenever possible but that’s not always a realistic option.

      But I’m looking to be back in the blogging world asap. Thanks for your kind words of encouragement.

      Hugs, Gronda

    • Dear Keith,

      The best Senator Lamar Alexander could do was to not give President Trump a clean bill of health. Supposedly, he has been a long term close friend to Senator McConnell. He wimped out and he’ll forever be known for turning his back on honoring his oath of office.

      Hugs, Gronda

    • Dear USFMAN,

      Your blog that appeared as a feature op-ed piece in the Miami Herald is excellent. We all are looking forward to a return to decency, respect for the “rule of law” and those government career officials who strive to do what’s right, etc. I am thrilled that you shared your blog within the below comment.

      Hugs, Gronda
