Sham Trial for Trump in the Senate

Imagine you were called up for jury duty and some people said they'd already made up their mind

22 December 2019 at 1:50:42 PM

Think they would be chosen to be jurors, when supposedly people that sit on a jury are supposed to weigh the facts with an open mind. Bet not, and yet that is what the Senate is going with regard to the upcoming Senate trial for possible conviction of Trump. Now, Donald Trump has been impeached by the House and nothing will ever take that away. I have heard that Trump is lying (again, what a surprise) that he's not *really* impeached. Hah, yes he is. He's ignoring history where, for example, Bill Clinton was impeached and not convicted, but he's always and forever going to have been impeached. To not have *impeached* by his name, that's most likely why Nixon resigned before impeachment. I don't think Trump understands that even if he's not convicted, he'll always have impeachment on his record. 

Both Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham have said that they've already made up their minds. McConnell "I'm not an impartial juror"   Lindsey Graham said he's not trying to be a *fair juror* in the Senate trial. 

"I think what's best for the country is to get this thing over with. I have clearly made up my mind. I'm not trying to hide the fact that I have disdain for the accusations in the process. So I don't need any witnesses. ... I am ready to vote on the underlying articles. I don't really need to hear a lot of witnesses."

— Lindsey Graham

Why does this matter? Before beginning an impeachment trial, Senate rules dictate that senators must swear an oath to do "impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws". 

Ugh. Why do Republicans have so much contempt for the rule of law?
