I laugh and enjoy listening to Trump haters in CNN like Carl Bernstein, John Dean and others talk about how Trump is a KING, how he was squashed balance of power, how he got away with murder, how shameful senate is. Turns out, it's projection, what the left has made a trademark of democratic party. The house impeachment was a partisan effort and it should NEVER be allowed, ever again. This was an egregious act and the epitome of abuse of power. I never heard the Trump haters in CNN act disgusted with how the house rushed the impeachment, locked out Trump's defense lawyers from proceedings, held secretive meetings and refused to enforce subpoenas to get additional witnesses to the 18 witnesses they had testify. This was an abomination, a political scam and the proof is in the pudding. The house failed to gain bipartisan support in the house, not a single republican out of 196 (196!!!!) voted for impeachment. Meanwhile, 3 democrats did not vote for impeachment one was so disgusted that he switched parties. Impeachment powers is an awesome responsibility bestowed by constitution. The threshold for an impeachable offense must be very very high and when that threshold is breached, bipartisan support will be there, 0 out 196 is irrefutable evidence that that threshold wasn't met. In the end, what happened in the senate was justice served. When the house rushes through an impeachment in a completely unprecedented and partisan manner, the senate shall strike it down and strike it down with force. Never again. If the house is to impeach a president again, they must be thorough, they must seek bipartisan support, they must give the accuser the chance to defend himself, they must ensure the impeachable offense meets a very high threshold. If the house doesn't meet these standards, the impeachment will and MUST fail. Removing a president from office is nothing more than overriding the American voter and what happened in the house was a disgrace. To go after the senate for shutting down this partisan hack job by the house is assigning fault to the wrong party, it starts with the house. In the end, this was the right end result. The precedent has been set - Do your job in the house, no more partisan impeachments. The house's abuse of power has been neutralized by the senate, balance of power restored. Now, democrats, make the case to the American voter as to why you all think Trump should not win in 2020 for an alleged quid pro quo (denied by the victim, Ukraine) where Trump asked Ukraine to look into very very VERY corrupt like behavior by a former VP and his son. Go make that case.... good luck.
