Democrats want an impeachment, but no trial

Laurence Tribe, the Harvard law professor who has been giving Democrats bad advice freely for decades, had a new brainstorm: impeach President Donald John Trump but never let him have a trial in the Senate to clear his good name. Apparently a lack of kangaroos in the Senate give him doubts about the court.

It is weird how one can get a law degree and not bother to read the Constitution.

That such a person would be a heralded law professor at Harvard does not surprise me. It hired as a token Indian a woman who said she was an Indian. No background check or proof was necessary. She had high cheekbones.

Tribe has a clientele. Others are joining in. Chuck Schumer is now whining about not getting a fair trial. How Orwellian because the Sixth Amendment makes it clear that that the president -- not the impeachment horde -- has the right to a fair trial.

The amendment says, "In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence."

The president has a God given right to a speedy trial.

I am not sure how Chief Justice John Roberts would feel about just dangling that sword.

As I have mentioned before, once impeached, President Trump is in charge. If he wants a lengthy trial, he shall have it. If he wants the charges dismissed, he shall have the charges dismissed.

Democrats want to strip him of his rights -- along with stripping him of his presidency, which by the way strips the rights of the 30 states that elected him.

Tribe wrote, "Imagine this scenario: A prosecutor about to obtain a grand jury indictment learns that the foreman of the trial jury (whose members, for purposes of this thought experiment, we’ll have to assume are known in advance, as is the case with the Senate though not in the typical criminal case) has threatened to let the accused decide how the trial will be conducted — and has intimated that it will be a 'trial' in name only, one orchestrated in close coordination with defense counsel. Other key jurors also announce that they don’t intend to listen to any evidence but have already made up their minds to acquit."

No, imagine this: a crooked lying prosecutor shoves an indictment through a crooked grand jury, publicly announces it to ruin a man's reputation, but then refuses to let the man clear his name in court.

A public already tired of nearly 3 years of Democrats trying to impeach the president will certainly not tolerate Democrat sword play with the Constitution.

If Democrats and the deep state can do this to a president, we shudder to think what they would do to us.

But an impeachment without a trial is ludicrous. The resistance will howl in pain. Trump supporters will howl in laughter. And everyone else will roll their eyes.

Republicans are pushing back twice as hard.
McConnell's best bet is to tell Democrats thank you, and not give them an inch. And he won't.
